Examples of what I'm referring to:
Dirk gently's holistic detective agency
The long, dark tea time of the soul
Admittedly, they pale in comparison to the hitchker's guide, but they're still good.
What do you think of them?
By the way, one of my signature's lines refers to the second book I mentioned.
They're both part of the Dirk Gently series, which is also very very funny. Especially the bit about his refrigerator. Good stuff.
I've read every single book of Douglass Adams, but the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (but only the first 3 books) series is still my favourite.
I have read some of the Dirk Gently series...... how he gets the mechanic to fix his brokendown car allways makes me laff
I have read the Dirk Gently series, but H2G2 makes me laugh more, it's more imaginative and fantastic. But I really enjoy Dirk Gently, I mean the character.
THe Long Dark Teatime of the Soul is one of my favorite books of all time. Haven't read it in a few years though.
One of the other rants that gets me rolling on the floor laughing every time is the bit about noses in the Salmon of Doubt.
Anyways, I'm grateful, in a way, for the Hitchhiker's movie... they're reprinting all of his more obscure books, so I can get new copies and reread some of the ones that never returned from being on loan!
My favourite part in the dirk gently series:
When the child saves him the trouble of kicking himself.
Haven't read them but I will look them up.
I have read both Dirk Gently series and Hitchhikers guide to galaxy series(My Favourite) and read little of Salmon Of Doubt. I am looking for his other books like Starship Titanic and Meaning of liff, etc but didnt get it yet.
