Towel Day - Celebrating the life and work of Douglas Adams
So don't forget your towel.
And don't panic.
And remember, when you cannot figure out the answer, try '42'.
Yep, but the pile of stuff ahead of it is pretty dayem high! :doh
Yep, that's usually how it goes.Sometimes you just have to randomly pick something out of the blue and pile be damned.
I'm a voracious reader, but somehow I managed to never have read the book!
Guess it's going on my ever expanding list ....
I respect your posts Mr Person, so I'll give due dilligence to your suggestion! :thumbs: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.
