I'm a voracious reader, but somehow I managed to never have read the book! :(

Guess it's going on my ever expanding list ....

Sometimes you just have to randomly pick something out of the blue and pile be damned.

I went ahead and just bought the omnibus collection for the kindle as now I want to re-read them and my kids absconded with my paperback copies.

Yep, that's usually how it goes.

I'm now hitting the point where I occasionally have to check to verify if I already bought a book in the past. I blame Amazon! (and Prime!) (and my Amazon credit-line!)

You must. It's not necessarily even the story that's the funniest bit, it's the way Douglass Adams writes. Non-stop hilarity using language in an absurdist vein that plays out similar to the way sketchest by comedy groups like Monty Python or the Kids in the Hall do. (Bad analogy, but it ought to make sense once you have).

Start with the first Hitchiker's Guide book. There's 5 in the "trilogy".

Then, I suspect you'll also want to give his two Dirk Gently books a twirl, too.

I respect your posts Mr Person, so I'll give due dilligence to your suggestion! :thumbs:
