In my experience readers either love Adams books or uickly put them down I for example uite literally worship the words Adams puts on the page and have read the Hitchhiker s Trilogy so many times that I have large tracts of it memorized But both my wife and father couldn t get past book one the former because she found it too silly and the latter because he found the writing to be about the author s personality than plot and character WhateverThe first three books in the Hitchhiker s Trilogy The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and Life the Universe and Everything are inspired lunacy The ideas plots puns jokes and phrases that fill their pages have influenced an entire generation of not only writers but people from all fields For instance the Babel Fish software that translates foreign websites for you is named after a species of fish that Adams created in book one you can find dozens of recipes online for Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters the chess computer Deep Thought that lost two matches to Gary Kasparov in 1989 was named after a computer in book one and seriously who hasn t heard that the answer to life the universe and everything is 42 For of these consult wikipediaorg s entry on The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Cultural References Chances are if you re reading these books for the first time you ll be surprised to see how many everyday things were named after Adams creationsThe books aren t of course without their problems Adams himself admitted that the Trilogy had and I paraphrase a long beginning a long conclusion and not much in the middle though I can t remember where I read that He was also regularly accused of writing for the sake of cranking out one liners The books as a whole jump about like a manic puppy on methamphetamines and there are at least a few jokes in there that will completely fly over the heads of any readers who lack a basic comprehension of uantum physics Despite this the Hitchhiker s Trilogy remains as the single most entertaining and enjoyable series of books I ve ever read a position they ve occupied for some fifteen years Adams wit and wisdom still baffle me in their greatness and he remains to this day one of only two authors who can regularly consistently make me howl with laughter the other being Terry Pratchett Readers beware if the Adams bug infects you you will have it for life And you ll never be sorry you let it bite
