And Another Thing Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy #6Has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown upagain And Another Thingis the rather unexpected but very welcome sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series It features a pantheon of unemployed gods everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President a lovestruck green alien an irritating computer and at least one very large slab of chees To say that I disliked this book would be an understatement I have only finished this book because I despise leaving books unfinished Now I told myself when I sat down to read it that I had to judge this book on two criteria I had to judge it as a novel in it's own right and I have to judge it as a hitchhikers book but as I read the only point I kept coming back to is that this is an awful hitchhikers book miles worse then any Douglas Adams wrote It completely lacks the wit and sparkle of the original and instead is full of in jokey refrences and giant gaps in logicLet me tell you how I think this book was written I think Eoin Colfer sat down and read the first five books making a list of witty things he could refernce He then forgot all of that and made a plotor maybe he already had the plot and he dug it out of a drawer somewhere Anyway he had this plot and he thought hey that's ok and yeah it's not bad The problem it doesn't work with the hitchikers characters it doesn't fit with the general way a hitchhikers story plays out and this guy just flat out isn't as funny as Douglas AdamsNo problem Insert an excuse to make all the characters out of character and ignore any other problems and you have this bookTo tell you everything that I disliked about this book would take far too long so let me give you the main things this really made me angry1 TrillianNow some of you may remember Trillian from the other books She was the woman Apparently that's as far as Eoin Colfer got into her character In the first five books she is not just a woman She is intelligent educated driven level headed and damn curious to see the universe In fact she is arguably the only main character to posess a high level of any of these atributes She worked out what was going on at Kricket when everyone else was lost She has continually asserted her independenceGuess what she does in this book? She meets a man they have tension they kiss he is injured she faints they confess they run away to get married and live happily ever afterIt was the marriage that got me I have to admit My mental picture of Trillian doesn't fit with the idea of her first thought when she's met someone she's attracted to being that she might like to marry them She's just not that girl Date sleep with sure Marrydefinetley not something to consider right of the batThen the fainting This is kind of typical of who Trillian is protrayed She worries about her looks then she ever would It seems someone tipped her brains out and replaced them with cotton wool Can you imagine Trillian who walked of into space to talk with the diffused cloud of a supercomputer intent on destroying everything ever fainting at someone being injured even someone she was TTLY IN WIW WIF2 Wowbanger the infinitely prolonguedYou may remember this character from that one shot joke He's the guy going around the universe insulting everyone who's ever existed in alphabetical order Here's what he apparently didn't know about him He'd an idiotic emo who just wants to be WUVVED Seriously First the emo My god the emo e goes on about his bloody existence and how woeful it is He'd meant to be annoyed pissed of not a my chemical romance songBut the big thing the logic of him Ok we've got this guy with an infinite lifespan who's decided to insult everyone ever in alphabetical order and in order to do so is travelling backwards and forwards through time So he shows up for Zaphod Beeblebroxand he remembers Arthur First he's insulting everyone ever so he's not going to remember Arthur Aruthr is kind of a forgetable guy Second presuming last names as what will be in alpha
