I’ve been writing so much for my new chick lit blog that I felt it was time to review a completely different kind of book. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, is one of the best books ever written, and I actually envy you if you haven’t read it yet, because the first reading of this five-part trilogy* is out of this world. (But don’t get me wrong – the second and third and fourth reading are great fun too.) Squarely in the realm of science fiction, it’s screamingly funny and wholly original. I can’t recommend it highly enough. (The original radio scripts are fun to read too.)

I have always wished that I could be hypnotized so that I would forget all of my favorite books so that I could read them as brand new, all over again. This is up at the top of my list with TLOTR and Dune….
Wouldn’t that be great? Some books get better with two or three readings, but I’ve now read HHGG at *least* 50 times. There are entire passages that I can quote verbatim.
