Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
I finished Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy yesterday before I left for work. I'm not sure if it's because I was expecting so much more from such a well-known book or if I'm just one of those few people who don't fully appreciate it but I found it a little lackluster. Some parts of it were certainly funny, but it seemed like so much of it was unnecessary filler and the ending is so blah. Adams has a pretty funny sense of humor (he had Monty Python connections and it shows), but I just didn't feel connected to the characters at all. I feel like I might still be comparing everything I read to the Tenebrea trilogy by Roxann Dawson because I read it recently and absolutely loved it. I tend to do that with really great books. Hopefully I'll find something to really pique my interest soon.
