3.0 out of 5 stars
still funny but..., 15 Aug. 2012
Being the fourth to one of the funniest, if not THE funniest books of all time is always going to be a hard act to follow. And it shows. The style seems to change and the extra new takes in this book such as the Arthur-ian romance just does not compete with the former Douglas Adams moments of rib-tickling spectacular themes. Perhaps this would get more stars if it was not in the Hitch Hikers series. Maybe. But it is noticeably less energetic than its predecessors.
