LoveReading View on Mostly Harmless

5th and final, the title refers very neatly to the ‘expanded entry’ Ford Prefect got into the Hitchikers Guide after being stranded on Earth for 15 years and if you didn’t know that click here to go back to the first book in the series.

An increasingly random plot around multiple dimensions, sandwich making and troubled teenagers actually finishes up quite neatly – but not neatly enough to stop Eoin Colfer writing a sequel.

Even 30 years on this is still a fresh and funny series of stories, whether you read them or listen to the original BBC radio shows. The anarchic, or ‘random’ to use modern parlance, plot, place settings and characters makes them more appealing than a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!

Mostly Harmless Synopsis

This title celebrates the thirty years of comic genius of Douglas Adams. Arthur Dent hadn't had a day as bad as this since the Earth had been blown up. Depressed and alone, Arthur finally settles on the small planet Lamuella and becomes a sandwich maker. Looking forward to a quiet life, his plans are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. There's nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away - Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - he's encountered most of them before. This title is volume five in the trilogy of five.
