Goodreads Book Blurb:
Series / Genres:
If this book had started at the point when we catch up with Arthur in Lamuella making sandwiches, I think I would have enjoyed it much more. Everything before that just seemed so pointless. And not in a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ‘everything is crazy and nothing makes sense’ way, but more in a ‘are we ever going to figure out what the point of this story is’ way.
Once we get to Lamuella, over 50% of the way through the book, I was on board. From this point on there was a plot and a sense of direction. This was the perfect ending to the series, coming full circle to make the entire series pointless, just like the narrative.
…except there’s still one more book to go. I know Eoin Colfer was given permission from the family to continue the story but it seems a shame considering how good the ending here was. And while I loved Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series as a kid, I’m not sure the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series needed another book.
