mostlyharmless So at long last – we finally hit the final book in the HitchHiker’s series and Mostly Harmless really is mostly fun.

The whole bit with Tricia/Tristan in parallel timelines wasn’t just the typical Adams sillyness – but is brilliantly crafted character scifi too.

What if you chose a different path what would have happened sort of thing..

The final few pages where Arthur finally meets his end – in a bar on Earth instead of some strange planet – also sheer brilliance.

If you haven’t recently read or re-read this trilogy in five parts – summer is a great time to do so. I had not read this series in more than ten years   and I didn’t remember all that much either to be honest.

You still have one more book to go….the Salmon of Doubt.
