This is a hugely disappointing book.,
This review is from: The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul (Paperback)
Absolutely terrible! That is my honest opinion of this book. I read HHG and loved it, but this book was possible one of the worst I have read. If it hadn't been for Adams name on the cover I would have abandoned it after a few chapters. It read like something a school boy might write, or possibly J.K.Rowling. The humor can only be described as 'whacky', in that it tries to hard but is not actually funny, a bit like wearing odd socks and a bright dickey bow to seem funny. I feel many people have added stars simple due to the author and the fact that it was his last book. Unless your blinded by the name 'Douglas Adams' don't both with this offering.

Your review is like something a schoolboy might write, but not a particularly bright one and one who has problems with spelling and grammar: "simple due to the author" ! "Don't both with this offering." ! Gordon Bennett.

I actually was a not particularly bright school boy, so you might have something there. I also rank poorly for spelling and grammar. You are really clever, like a teacher or some sort of doctor or other. Or possibly a retired librarian. It is a rubbish book though. Of that there can be no doubt. You should read my other reviews by the way, some of them are even worse.
