      An unseen spaceship lands on Earth England , in the rain never knew about all that precipitation there , a man leaves the craft and waves , thanking the crew for the ride, but first going back , he forgot his bag, towels inside Slogs through the mud and muck, in the cold windy darkness, slipping and sliding going up a hill, climbs over a fence and is almost killed, when a speeding automobile Porsche , nearly crushes the stranger on the road The heavy rain pours down, lightning flashes in the nea [...]

      1 You will never read anything so British again in your lifespan 2 If you re a writer, try underlining every adverb in this book Then, read a book on fiction writing that advises you to avoid using adverbs Any ironic chuckling afterwards is optional 3 This book should be rated Mostly Harmless 4 Thanks, Mr Adams So long, and thanks for all the fun.

      This book seems to be different from the earlier books in the series It is no longer sci fi since Arthur Dent has come back from space travel to Earth and a good part of the story is his love story Had I not read the first books, I would have liked this as a romantic comedy story So, I guess I was affected by my wrong expectation The plot is tighter than the earlier books There are still those funny moments and my favorite is the biscuit eating scene I had a bittersweet feeling about the disappe [...]

      This is the fourth book in Douglas Adams Hitchhiker Trilogy no, that s not a typo starting with The Hitchhiker s guide to the galaxy Douglas Adams originally only meant to write two sequels to his original classic, and I m sorry to say, this book shows it In all of Douglas s books, the plot is convoluted at best, with frequent asides and authorial interpretations which works perfectly in the context of sci fi comedy but the plot in this story was so ambiguous, it just didn t have the same effect [...]

    6. J.G. Keely on said:

      The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes , I knew this to be true and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill treated creature Adams has always been, to me, to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams, and, luckily for us, he doesn t seem to mind if you lie [...]

      3.5 stars.So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish is primarily about Arthur being back on Earth Not the same Earth he previous inhabited, since his world blew up in to make room for a highway, but an Earth that didn t blew up and all the dolphins disappeared What random, quirky, and hilarious mysteries lay before Arthur before he can solve the ultimate question If he ever solves it This series is wonderful All the books have made me laugh uncontrollably Arthur goes through so many obstacles that ar [...]

      Arthur no pod a cre rselo Treintasegundos de conversacion y ya lo habia echado a perder Este libro es un giro de tuerca bastante considerable en comparaci n con el resto de los libros de esta saga, se nota un alejamiento considerable al tono y tem tica, pudiendo ubicar m s por el lado de comedia romantico si, dije eso que ciencia ficci n y no es que sea malo, de hecho es una relaci n que puede ser muy divertida pero que aun teniendo a Dent se siente completamente desconectado.Personalmente la fa [...]

      If any of the inappropriately named Hitchhiker s Guide Trilogy could be called best , I think this is it I see two elements setting it apart from the other books in the HHGG series its tight plot, and the fact that it is at heart a romantic comedy than a farcical satire of the Science Fiction genre.As one would expect, the focus of the storyline is the continued pursuit of the Ultimate Question, to which we already know that the Ultimate Answer is Forty two.The characterization of Arthur Dent s [...]

      Running on empty Following a highly productive breakthrough period when he was simultaneously knocking out scripts for both Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who, Douglas Adams famously struggled with writer s block during the later half of his career as a novelist Previous Hitchhiker novel Life, the Universe and Everything was itself a re worked Doctor Who story, and by the time of 4th Hitchhiker novel So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish you can feel the author struggling to find a s [...]

    11. Evan Leach on said:

      The fourth installment in the Hitchhiker series is something of an anomaly Virtually the entire story takes place on Earth, and major characters like Zaphod and Trillian are nowhere to be found The focus is on Arthur Dent after years of being kicked around by the universe, poor Arthur finally finds himself in a good old fashioned love story.Well, maybe old fashioned is a poor choice of words This is a Douglas Adams book after all, and it features robots, spaceships, and a man named Wonko the San [...]

      Poznata je injenica da svaka trilogija u pet nastavaka ima genijalan etvrti nastavak Douglas Adams je genije Njegovo poigravanje sa SF arom, kao da se ruga apsolutno svakom kalupu u koji ga ele smjestiti, a usput se ruga i gotovo svemu na ovom planetu, od demokracije do masovne halucinacije, pa do vje nog pitanja smisla ivota i znanosti Toliko mi je ao da sam na pretposljednjem nastavku, ao mi je to svaku od ovih knjiga pro itam kroz nekoliko sati, volim ovo ludo putovanje svemirom i svaki put t [...]

      Sorry for the Inconvenience16 November 2016 When I first read this book I loved it namely because I happened to be a hopeless romantic and our protagonist, Arthur Dent, finally gets a girlfriend Well, finally is probably not the best way to describe it because Adams does raise the possibility that Arthur may have had a relationship with Trillian and when the question is metaphorically asked the reply is basically none of your business , and also suggests that there is a rather long gap between b [...]

      Addio e grazie per il buonuSe alla quarta puntata della serie iniziata con la Guida galattica per autostoppisti sono ancora a svagarmi nei romanzi di questo sottovalutato geniaccio di Douglas Adams soprattutto per il buonu che ogni volta la sua lettura mi procura.Pur essendo ben lontano dai vertici della narrativa, questo humour tipicamente inglese, che flirta col non sense e richiama lo spirito dei Monty Python e la fantasia creativa di Kurt Vonnegut che non inglese ma in qusta compagnia ci sta [...]

    15. Bill Coffin on said:

      Even by the tired standard of the first three Hitchhiker s Guide novels, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish comes off as a tired, threadbare effort by a writer who simply did not have enough gas in the tank at this point and really should have waited the 10 years or so that it would have taken him to recharge fully and put together something with the creative density of his first or second installment in this series I have not liked any of the book in this series, but at least there seemed to [...]

    16. Becky Ginther on said:

      Out of the trilogy of five, this one was actually my favorite I understand that for many people it s the least popular, because almost the whole thing takes place on earth and it focuses mainly just on Arthur Dent and not the other characters However, that s why I liked it After the somewhat overwhelming third book, it was a relief to have a novel that didn t keep jumping around between characters and plot, and just focus on one thing at a time.Plus, this story had a much human element to it th [...]

    17. Katie on said:

      Not what I would have expected This book is very different from the first three books in the Hitchhiker s Guide series, which I supposed is apt for the fourth book of a trilogy I wasn t overly bothered by the fact that everything took place on earth though the fact that the earth still apparently exists may take a bit of the underlying pathos out of the earlier works I thought some of it was delightful, and I got a really big kick out of the Rain God, whenever he showed up The giant robot at the [...]

      Meh Didn t like this one as much as the others, not sure why It was similar to the rest, but just didn t grab me at any point The only part I really liked was the inside out house, that made me giggle, and it was neat, but it was too short of a part and that was really all that interested me.

    19. Kaylee on said:

      I love this series I laugh so hard when I read it, and I don t mean like low chuckle and a smile, I mean laughing so that other people look at me and I have trouble explaining to them why I m laughing in public laughs.

    20. Donovan on said:

      This was one of my least favorite books in the series but still moderately entertaining, like a drunk who rambles but is periodically hilarious It s like one of those road trip indie films with no plot but lots of jokes and introspection Or an adventure has concluded, everyone goes home, but the story just doesn t know when to quit I feel like I as the reader sit around a lot waiting for something to happen while Adams drags this out with his often long winded and rambling for comedic effect and [...]

      If you love any of Doug Adam s work, you will be sorry to miss this one.If you are unfamiliar with his work, I urge you to begin with the Hitchhiker s Guide and move through them in order.

    22. Debbie on said:

      Comical and back on track to amusing.I liked it It made up for book 3 in the series for which I wasn t too fond For those making their way through the series, I almost want to recommend skipping book 3 and going straight to 4 I don t think you will miss much And I don t think it s absolutely necessary to have read 3 to comprehend 4 The old quirky humor was back and the weirdness was gone The old quirky humor was back and the weirdness was lessened Excuse me Clears throat The consistently quirky [...]

      Let me start off by saying first of all that I am a huge fan of the Hitchhiker Trilogy I loved the first three books of the series This one was very, very different from the others though and I don t think I like the change in the pattern.First of all, two major characters, Trillian and Zaphod weren t even there in the book, they were simply given a brief mention towards the end And Marvin, who was my favourite character of the lot didn t come around till the very, very last bit of the book.Seco [...]

    24. Greg on said:

      More or less pointless, yet exceedingly charming Adams writing is in killer form here, hilarious and touching as ever Books 3 and 4 are pretty much about nothing in retrospect, book 3, Life, The Universe, and Everything, has a brilliant title , yet they could have been about Something and I would feel pretty much the same about it, I m sure It s the quality of writing I go in for, and Adams can t be beat at what he does I loved every minute of reading this tiny book, and believe me, there were s [...]

    25. Marta on said:

      Less frentic, easier to digest, thoughtful than the previous installment, with a cute, quirky romance, and much less galaxy hopping The humor is subtle, the jokes have breathing room A welcome change of pace.

    26. Zahed on said:

      From the Forward Douglas Adams was tall He was brilliant I ve met a handful of geniuses, and I d count him as one of them He was a frustrated performer, a remarkable explainer and communicator, an enthusiast He was an astonishing comic writer he could craft sentences that changed the way a reader viewed the world, and sum up complex and difficult issues in aptly chosen metaphors He combined the trappings of science fiction with profound social commentary and a healthy sense of humour to create f [...]

      This book wasn t at all what I expected.Arthur has hitch hiked his way to Earth after eight long years but everything seems to be going on as normal for all other humans, even after Arthur remembers it being destroyed by Vogons This drives Arthur a little mad thinking he made the whole thing up but he eventually settles into a normal life again He does however briefly meet a girl called Fenchurch, soon after meeting her he becomes obsessed and is convinced they are connected Everyone on earth be [...]

    30. Tilly on said:

      Maybe, if I had not read the previous three books in the series, I would have enjoyed this book as a nice love story with only a few science fiction elements but I can t ignore that I read the previous three, so this book was not at all what I expected.I liked the concept of the story and the idea with the dolphins, but I think it would have been better as a subplot because with this story as a main plot this book was very fast paced in my opinion even though it is a very short book and only the [...]
