Product Description

Review

"My first reaction was semi-outrage that anyone should be allowed to tamper with this incredible series. But on reflection I realised that this is a wonderful opportunity to work with characters I have loved since childhood and give them something of my own voice while holding onto the spirit of Douglas Adams and not laying a single finger on his five books." -- Eoin Colfer --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl is the first title in the mega-selling series - it was one of the most eagerly awaited children's books ever to be published. Described as “Die Hard with fairies”, this adrenaline-packed novel marks the arrival of the Irish teacher-turned-author as a major force to be reckoned with in the popular fantasy genre.

If you read this book you will be amused in places, pleased to spend time with Ford, Arthur, Zaphod and Trillium, who come off pretty much as Doug intended, but otherwise probably a little cold, and slightly tired.

This is not a Douglas Adams novel. This is a novel written by someone who obviously has great affection for Doug and his work, and really wanted to continue his legacy, but probably shouldn't have bothered. He's also a little too rambling and long-winded, with a complete misunderstanding of the rhythm of Guide humour. (The guide entries come up far too frequently, and seem to be stuck to the page more like post-its of ideas to be incorporated later, rather than perfect little jewels within the flow of the narrative).

All that being said, you will not be completely disappointed by this novel--it has laughs and moments of entertainment--but you also won't be affected by it in the long term. The book will not stay with you like the originals did. The corollary of this being, if you don't read this book, you won't be missing much.

I miss Doug.

First a caveat...I love anything to do with the Hitchhickers Guide to the Galaxy.. as a series it is possibly one of the best NON Science Fiction, Science Fiction books ever written. Douglas Adams had a definite flare for creating and recognizing characters and situations that were humourous and thought provoking.
With due credit to Eoin Colfer.. while his effort at continuing the HHG2 series is admirable, and while the story line in "And Another Thing" does follow the general laid out plot of Adams' previous books, Colfer relys too heavily on justifying and explaining the connections between his volume, and those of Doug Adams.
Billing his novel as part six of three.. following Adams' expansion of the famous trilogy through, this book is aimed directly at the heart of those who've already read the preceeding 5 volumes. The story and its plot line would have better been served WITHOUT the constant back referals, explanation and justification from this novel to the past. Anyone reading "And Another Thing" should read the Adams collection first, or there is no reason to pick it up.
Am I being overly harsh?.. I don't think that fans of HHG2 will think so once they've read this book. It left me wanting more than was provided, and thinking what I would have written and included in a "New" volume of Hitchhikers.. had I attempted one. (where is Fenchurch.. the young lady whose feet so fetchingly 'don't quite touch the ground'?)
Even though this review seems negative.. for HHG2 fans.. to say that you've read the whole series.. you will have to read this book, and hope that if Colfer attempts to expand the HHG2 Trilogy to a seventh volume, he will seriously consider less repetitive explanation, and more story.

As a life long fan of Douglas Adams and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and self proclaimed hoopy frood, it was with great trepidation that I picked up this book.
Though I do appreciate what Eoin Colfer was tring to do in this book, he falls short of the mark. Two things are abundantly clear about the author: one being that he normally writes books for a much younger section of the population than Doug ever did and, two, that he didn't fully appreciate the tone and themes of the original H2G2 books.
I'm not going to say that it is a bad book, as it isn't. I'm not going to say that Eoin Colfer is a bad author, as he isn't. I simply have to say that, in the end it just isn't a book that really belongs in the Guide series.

Unfortunately I hated this book. The dialogue and humor felt very juvenile. The characters as portrayed in this book are shallow, not particularly likeable, and nearly indistinguishable from one another. And the numerous "guide notes" came off as completely artificial and arbitrary, lacking any of the wit or charm that we've come to expect from Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker entries. It just didn't work for me.
