1.0 out of 5 stars Entirely Pointless, 11 Dec 2009
I had mixed feelings when I got "And Another Thing", but I had read a couple of positive reviews and so got stuck in immediately. What a letdown! The story is weak, the characters come across as silly and insignificant, as do the dialogues. But the worst thing, in my opinion, is that the book is killing itself trying to be funny - but is actually just killing any fun or enjoyment on the reader's part, mostly through pointless insertions of the Guide's "voice", disrupting any remnants of a coherent story. I found myself skipping the "Guide" bits more and more towards the end. I love Douglas Adams' work, but this feeble attempt by Eoin Colfer to recreate the DNA magic is going straight to the charity shop!
