Another classic If you don t like this series you probably put your babel fish in the wrong hole You are the reason that human beings are nly the third most intelligent species Bayou Dreams on earth behind mice and dolphins So long and thanks for all the fish It s not you it s me well maybe it s also youUnfortunately this book wasn t for me Somef the humor I liked but it was too absurd for me and it was too slow to really startI wish I had liked it as much as everyone else but it definitely didn t make it to my favorite books Snowbound with Her Hero of all time listUPDATE I finally figuredut what was my issue with this book There s a French movie called Rrrrrrr similar humour to Monty Pyton and I ve had way fun using the jokes Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, outf context with friends than I did actually watching the movie Recommending it was always a bit weird because it s just an kay movie but the jokes are funny afterwards This summarizes exactly how I feel about this book What can I say I wish I had been in the movie although it was bad and I guess I should be happy about NOT being in it The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning f life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes I knew this to be true and yet I have always felt a need to search for the truth that nebulous ill treated creature Adams has always been to me to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams and luckily for us he doesn t seem to mind if you lie there with him He s a tall guy but he ll make roomFor all his crazed unpredictability Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns Her Man From Shilo out it takes little than a moment s uestioning to burstur preconceptions at the seams yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonableIt is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people The Agents Secret Past (Military Investigations often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laidut by Adams uips and absurdities His approach is much personable and less embittered than Dawkins which is why I think Champagne with a Celebrity of Adams as a better face for rational materialism which is a polite wasf saying atheism Reading his books it s not hard to see that Dawkins is tired f arguing with uninformed idiots who can t even recognize when a point has actually been made Adams humanism however stretched much further than the contention between those who believe and those who don tWe see it from his protagonists who are not elitist intellectuals they re not even especially bright but damn it they re trying By showing a universe that makes no sense and having his characters constantly uestion it Adams is subtly hinting that this is the natural human state and the fact that we laugh and sympathize shows that it must be trueIt s all a joke it s all ridiculous The absurdists might find this joke it s all ridiculous The absurdists might find this but they re just a bunch f narcissists anyhow Demanding the world make sense and give you purpose is rather self centered when it already contains toasted paninis attractive people in bathing suits and Euler s Identity I say let s sit down at the bar with the rabbi the priest and the frog and try to get a song going Or at least recognize that it s The Salvation of Zachary Baumkletterer okay to laugh aturselves now and again It s not the end Courting Callie (Heart of the West/Bachelor Auction, of the worldIt s just is a joke but somef us are in Mortimer, Mallory and Allen Taster Collection on it I am notne Mustang Wild (Wild, of those who think this is the best book ever written It does not affect men any deep emotional level and this
