(14) The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Douglas Adams

Rating: 6/10


This is the second instalment of Douglas Adams' Hitch-hiker's 'trilogy' (even though there are five books....don't even ask!). If you've read the first book you'll know what to expect.

The series is by no means technically brilliant. The language, for instance, is pretty basic yet it is an enjoyable read. The characters (I personally LOVE Marvin) and the storyline are why you'd read this book. In some places it is laugh out loud funny, in others....well not so much.

All of the series are fairly short so I'd definitely recommend them as amusing time-killers as long as you don't expect a masterpiece. There are worse ways to spend a rainy day.
