Booklist Challenge: “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”

I made a promise to myself that I would not start a new book until I wrote a review for the one I just finished. That being said, here is the review for Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Adams, Douglas. (1979, 2002). The Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy. New York: First Ballantine Books Edition.

Visitors and politics got in the way of reading this book in a timely manner, however, the review would remain the same regardless of the timespan.

If you’re looking for a book with a one dimensional female character, and 3 men with more importance in the universe than is ever likely, even in a book, then read Hitchhikers Guide. It had moments, that seem poignant, especially in relation to the current political atmosphere. However, it felt like it was about how even nerdy awkward men have the potential to be heroes than anything else.

I used to love this book as a teen. It’s sci-fi content and otherwise nerdy credentials made connecting with boys easier, but clearly the content does not translate to my adulthood.

Enjoy.
