Beign that the book is older than I am myself, it's one of the most entertaining books I have ever red. It's smart, witty and complements the story started with book one, narrating the adventures of Arthur Dent through his space and time travel through the Universe.
Marvin is most likely my favorite character EVER, as he is the depressed robot portrayed in the movie and so much more. It's shame there wont be a movie mde out of this book, as Hitchhickers didnt do very well in the box office, but still, that's no reaosn to miss out on this one.
Story is as unlikely as te first, with a very out of this world ending to it...
I'd say, 4 stars!
