I really enjoyed this read. I liked all the other Hitchhikers but not as much as this one. This one seemed special, very funny, not quite so mad. I would have loved to find out more about Gusty Winds, he had the makings of another five part trilogy.
So long, Douglas, thanks for all the laughs. ( )

This partially posthumous volume consists of a collection of magazine articles, newspaper columns, interviews and such like, along with one short story (about a young Zaphod)originally published in the Utterly Utterly Merry Comic Relief Christmas Book...a copy of which I own...and the (very) incomplete conflated text of three versions of the third Dirk Gently's novel. This novel was abandoned whilst Adams was still alive, in favour of a 6th Hitchhikers' novel. Adams had decided that the material/theme was better suited to the latter. Personally, I think a 3rd Gently's would have been much more fun than a 6th 'Hikers'. The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soul is my favourite Adams novel and The Salmon of Doubt looked to be very much in a similar vein, structurally and stylistically. It's a great shame that we will never see an end to this fragment.

It's really amazing the amounts of nostalgia that can build up in a person's system before it kinda explodes into a kind of reverse word soup full of interviews, introductions, epilogues, and snippets of novels we wish we had but they were never penned because the author up and died on us.

I'm writing of Douglas Adams, of course.

I almost didn't re-read this one because I remember it WAS mostly just magazine articles and interesting early computer-tech stuff and ruminations on science, god, and other random bits that fly out of this wonderful man's brain in tightly humorous one-liners that explain not only life, the universe, and everything, but also the way his mind works... and this is all DESPITE the fact that Mr. DNA may or may not have had a functional nose with which to sneeze out those humorous one-liners.

So am I rating this entirely based on a man's ability to be clear, funny, horribly learned, and dead?

Yes, but it's gotta be more than that, and indeed it is. I loved the man.

I grew up reading and re-reading HHGttG about a bazillion times with or without the cheese sandwhich, playing countless hours on the Infrogames title of the same name being simultaneously corrupted and flabbergasted by my inability to create NO TEA, and learning how to fly by distraction.

I even decided when I was fourteen that I'd grow a beard for the distinct purpose of giving some poor hapless creature a traveling burial site to not see the rest of the world through.

DNA is that kind of man to me.

This book reminds me of just how regular a human he is and it is an unabashedly wonderful nostalgia piece to boot.

Oh, and we also get a few short stories including Ghengis Kahn, a non-presidential Zaphod, and the opening to the next Dirk Gently book which would have been fantastic, I'm sure, had he written it.

*sigh*

Still, what a wonderful thing it is. Farewell, Mr. Adams. (Yes. I know I'm 16 years late. It's just that this book was compiled shortly after his death, so I feel it fresh. Sue me.) ( )

This book is a collection of interviews with, articles by and story thoughts of Douglas Adams. The last part also includes a posthumous attempt at a draft of a novel Mr. Adams had been working on.

Perhaps if I had picked this up right after Mr. Adams died and I was also still a teenager, I might have enjoyed it. I loved the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy when I was a teen. I didn't so much go for the eventual Hollywood movie that was made. At the time, I attributed it to a poor screen implementation. Upon reading the draft novel in this book, I wonder if I have just changed to much (gotten older, wiser, dumber, erratic?) to appreciate Douglas Adam's rhetoric anymore.

Further, writers keep journals and notes, often to jog memories, write down ideas that came to them during the night/day, etc. I have kept several journals myself. However, these are internal ideas, and while fans might love to get their hands on them, they can't contribute to the larger dialogue between a writer and his/her audience. Writers craft, they don't just blurt out every thought (well, most don't). E.g., when you look at a beautiful piece of art or architecture, you don't see the sweat and tears, underlying supports, etc. You see the finished product. You know a lot went into it, but that's not the point, just the final product. That's my opinion, as a writer. ( )

Ia dar 3 estrelas porque o começo do livro tem alguns contos excelentes, mas outros nem tanto e algumas entrevistas são bem longas e cansativas. Eu tinha uma expectativa sobre o livro e estava ficando desanimado. Até chegar no conto Beeblebrox e depois nos capítulos do Salmão da Dúvida. São muito bons e valeram a pena. Pena que o livro ficou inacabado. De qualquer forma, recomendo a leitura para qualquer fã do trabalho do D.A. ( )

Dear Editor,
The sweat was dripping down my face and into my lap, making my clothes very wet and sticky.

“The following morning the weather was so foul it hardly deserved the name, and Dirk decided to call it Stanley instead. Stanley wasn’t a good downpour. Nothing wrong with a good downpour for clearing the air. Stanley was the sort of thing you needed a good downpour to clear the air of. Stanley was muggy, close, and oppressive, like some one large and sweaty pressed up against you in a tube train. Stanley didn’t rain, but every so often he dribbled on you. Dirk stood outside in the Stanley.”
