location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons 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 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 there with him He s a tall guy, but he ll make room.For all his crazed unpredictability, Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns out it takes littlethan a moment s questioning to burst our preconceptions at the seams, yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonable.It is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laid out by Adams quips and absurdities His approach is muchpersonable and less embittered than Dawkins , which is why I think of Adams as a better face for rational materialism which is a polite was of saying atheism.Reading his books, it s not hard to see that Dawkins is tired of arguing with uninformed idiots who can t even recognize when a point has actually been made Adams humanism, however, stretched much further than the contention between those who believe, and those who don t.We see it from his protagonists, who are not elitist intellectuals they re not even especially bright but damn it, they re trying By showing a universe that makes no sense and having his characters constantly question it, Adams is subtly hinting that this is the natural human state, and the fact that we laugh and sympathize shows that it must be true.It s all a joke, it s all ridiculous The absurdists might find this depressing, but they re just a bunch of narcissists, anyhow Demnading the world make sense and give you purpose is rather self centered when it already contains toasted paninis, attractive people in bathing suits, and Euler s Identity I say let s sit down at the bar with the rabbi, the priest, and the frog and try to get a song going Or at least recognize that it s okay to laugh at ourselves now and again It s not the end of the world.It s just is a joke, but some of us are in on it The second strike of the prime example of how Sci Fi, fantasy, humor, philosophy, and criticism can be fused to an intergalactic road trip.Including time manipulation, end of time, relativity of death and afterlife, monetarization of the end of the universe, human evolution and what may have influenced it, madness coming out of the insight of one s unimportance concerning the cosmic scale, etc., Adams covers a large range of topics in a small amount of pages and mixes it with fabulous character The second strike of the prime

topics in a small amount of pages and mixes it with fabulous character description, dialogues, and weird protagonist premises.Dissecting satire is no fun, but a difficult and highly subjective endeavor and it seems to me as if Adams has packed eveninnuendos to grievances into it than in the first,light hearted part of his legendary series Not dark, but a bitin the grey area.It s very difficult to choose the best part of the series, but I would prefer this one because it needs no further explanation and goes directly into different plots and the epic ending gives deep insights in human cultural evolution and let s one ask the question whose weirdos descendents we might be.Alien 1 I bet you might not dare to mix your genetic code with those primates because of the non interference laws and ethical issues Alien 2 Hold my beer Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres unique Captain Jeltz our old not

Heart of Gold again On board are Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian and the ex President of the Galaxy the thief, Zaphod Beeblebrox nobody cares about Marvin the annoying robot The unsmiling captain likes killing, that s what he does best The fugitive ship is just about to be no , with the help of the cruel Vogan a bad poet too , and his deadly spacecraft s weaponsThe Heart of Gold s computer is too busy making the perfect cup of tea, to defend the vessel.Thanks to the thirsty Mr.Dent, a man must have his beverage The only bright side is that the Englishman gets the best tea, he s ever hadWith the crew having only a few moments to live, the great grandfather of Zaphod s is someways conjured up by Beeblebrox He can t explain it either Great grandpa isn t very happy, observing the stupidity of his great grandson Four generations and what a blockhead, it has produced And an ill timed lecture on his relative s shameful habits, complicates things But blood is blood and with the desperate, nervous encouragement of the rest of the gang, he sends them in their merry, separate ways Marvin and the former president, vanishing from the bridge And the craft travels many light years away, from the rather dangerous somewhat bleak situation Zaphod materializes on distant Ursa Minor Beta, a planet where it s always a sunny afternoon, along also his not so fun but gloomy robot companion Marvin, and his constant bad moods Arriving in a bar he s amazed, speechless, shocked still the gentleman is no stranger to such an environment and soon feels right at home after a couple of good drinks And on this world is the wonderful headquarters of The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Mr.Beeblebrox has an overpowering mysterious urge to see he doesn t know why , Mr.Zarniwoop the editor Yet there are problems, they re always some, the sweet talking elevator won t take them to the 15th floor Even asks if they wouldn t prefer going in the opposite direction, down Strange behavior for this machine, some kind of premonition The reason becomes apparent soon after an attack from the galaxy s forces, not happy with our former leader s actions Despite the gallant efforts of Marvin s, they take the whole huge building and transports it to the worst place in the Milky Way, the Frogstar planet What a dump A voice tells him to come on down from the 15th floorHe does, very slowly and enters a structure on the dreary surface, will that kill him Maybe or maybe not He s hungry, slightly tired and would prefer to be in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Milliways where they see the end of the universe show ever night with a celebrity host Reasonable prices too, a great view of the entertainment if you can get a good table and join his friends for a few libations.The only heaven, which our not quite perfect hero knows
