    The universe is a joke Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes , I knew this to be true and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill treated creature Adams has always been, to me, to be a welcome companion in that journey Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it s all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams, and, luckily for us, he doesn t seem to mind if you lie there with him He s a tall guy, but he ll make room.For all his crazed unpredictability, Adams is a powerful rationalist His humor comes from his attempts to really think through all the things we take for granted It turns out it takes little than a moment s questioning to burst our preconceptions at the seams, yet rarely does this stop us from treating the most ludicrous things as if they were perfectly reasonable.It is no surprise that famed atheist Richard Dawkins found a friend and ally in Adams What is surprising is that people often fail to see the rather consistent and reasonable philosophy laid out by Adams quips and absurdities His approach is much personable and less embittered than Dawkins , which is why I think of Adams as a better face for rational materialism which is a polit...

    There is theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened Arthur Dent and his companions went through some bizarre and inexplicable adventures after the Earth got blown to bits by Vogons in the opening sequence of the series They were probably too close to making sense of their situation, because Douglas Adams decided to turn it all around for the sequel.Is is not an easy claim to make that the second Hitchhiker book is better than the previous one, since there was nothing wrong with the first one Yet, for various reasons, I ended up reading it faster and enjoying it It may be the fact that there is actually a plot, like searching for the ruler of the universe as opposed to searching for a philosophical answer to the ultimate question It may be that the jokes are better anchored in the actual story and feel less like an improvised skit It may be that most of the characters are already established and we get less exposition and action For me though, I guess the main attraction is to discover Adams hardcore nugget of humanism that holds it all together, like the black hole at the center of our Galaxy Douglas Adams first points out to us how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things, how tiny our problems are...

    Had I read this I couldn t recall I knew I d seen the old tv version, but I wasn t sure I d actually read the book, so I read it And why not It s a hell of a good book, and I d do it again The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is kind of the continuing adventures of Arthur Dent Honestly, while he s a focal point of book one, he doesn t factor into the sequel as much This is about Zaphod Beeblebrox and Ford Perfect, as well as the kitchen sink s worth of whatever zany ideas Douglas Adams wanted to throw into the works I say zany ideas as if they are a haphazard, careless collection of ramblings, but Adams does actually stay on topic for much of the time That topic is humanity s futility We re a go nowhere race going nowhere fast Adams basically says we ve been given two million years worth of time to do something with ourselves before it s a...

    The Universe some information to help you live in it.1 Area Infinite.The HitchHiker s Guide to the Galaxy offers this definition of the word Infinite.Infinite Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, wow, that s big , time Infinity is just so big that by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we re trying to get across here.2 Imports None.It is impossible to import things into an infinite area, there being no outside to import things in from.3 Exports None.See imports.4 Population None.It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in However, not every one of them is inhabited Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination This is the second book in The trilogy of five books in The Hitchhiker s Guide to th...

    Better than the first book This has funny moments and I just found myself laughing out loud than when I was reading the first book I guess it was by design Douglas Adams had to explain fully his milieu for the series Since he did that in the first book, his characters now have the whole universe to play around for themselves So, they just don t hop and hop from one planet to another but also in this one, enjoy a time travel They went to a restaurant at the end of the universe Prior to my reading of this book, I thought that the restaurant is located at the end or the edge of the universe But I was fascinated to learn that while eating steak from the meat of a talking animal , you could watch the end or the death of the universe Sorry for the spoiler but it s found in the first half of the book and there are other interesting scenes in the second part and you have to read the book and experience for yourself how is it to be dining and watching the end of yourself Very clever imagination I reason why I read this after the first book was that I d like to find out what was the Ultimate Question for the Ultimate Answer that was 42 However, it seemed the Adams was deliberately delaying it as it was only in the second part where it was brought up and he did not even give any hints So, after reading this book, I looked from the third book but I could not locate it So, I am now reading the four...
