I remember listening to this audiobook several years ago and it didn’t quite sink in. I have a hard time truly absorbing audiobooks and the fantastical nature of this narrative definitely didn’t help. Due to this first, albeit unsuccessful, attempt, I was very aware of what I was getting into here. I knew that it would be nonsensical and a little crazy and that if I took it too seriously, I probably wouldn’t enjoy myself. I think that has made all the difference here.
There isn’t much that can be said about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that hasn’t been said before. Published in 1979, it has over 1.5 million ratings and 30k reviews on Goodreads at this point in time, all skewed incredibly positive. I think it says a lot that this 180-page humorous science fiction is so embedded in our society and popular culture that you would be hard-pressed to find someone that is unaware of its existence. Sarcastic, illogical, and downright zany, it is an excellent start to a truly unique series. If it was any longer I think the narrative would start to wear on me but it seems the perfect length to just relax and ride along on this absurd adventure.
