As it’s a present for someone else, it would be wrong of me to read this copy at this stage, but on a quick flick through it’s impressive. It takes you all through the Adams story, right up to the 2012 stage show (which we went to). Some other reviewers have slated the book a little for repetition and sloppy editing, but – bearing in mind that Adams, on his own admission, couldn’t plan his way out of a paper bag – it’s probably written in a fitting spirit.
