Wild satire . . . The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes.Chicago Tribune


The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their headsso they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.

They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vice president of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-president of the galaxy; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox.

How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert universal Armageddon and save life as we know itand dont know it!

    Year Zero de Rob Reid (Aula)
    Aula: Nick Carter (not the Backstreet Boy) is a copyright lawyer who's visited by aliens who claim that the earth is in danger of being destroyed due to the universal (literally) popularity of its music. Similar humor to Adams' novels, well-plotted, and well-written.

Delightful use of grammar and wordplay. Less plot than the first two books, and doesn’t quite make it to 4 star. ( )

it was good, but not as good as the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Of course, Martin Freeman is still brilliant.
I am definitely going to listen to the others in the series, but I decided to take a break first.. ( )

I'm starting to think Martin Freeman is running out of voices... Still very enjoyable of course. This book was actually better than I remembered. ( )

Dal titolo molto allettante una si sarebbe aspettata di trovarvi finalmente qualche informazione riguardo alla Domanda Fondamentale sulla Vita, l’Universo e Tutto Quanto, quella alla quale si risponde con Quarantadue. In effetti, è così, anche se le informazioni non sono del tipo che ci saremmo aspettati: d’altro canto siamo nell’universo letterario di Adams, quindi cosa potrebbe esserci mai di lineare?

Infatti, spunta una nuova minaccia all’esistenza dell’Universo (e di chi ci vive): i Krikkitesi, persone amabili che credono «nella pace, nella giustizia, nella morale, nella cultura, nello sport, nell’etica familiare e nella distruzione di tutte le altre forme di vita». Non so a voi, ma a me pare una filosofia piuttosto in voga negli ultimi tempi…

Che si fa allora? Be’ pare che i maschietti, intesi come classici eroi/antieroi che in qualche modo di solito salvano la situazione, questa volta siano in difficoltà. Pare, infatti, che non abbiano proprio capito la situazione di Krikkit e dei suoi abitati, come invece pare aver compreso Trillian.

Tutti dietro alla guida di Trillian stavolta? No. Come mai, visto che è l’unica ad avere le idee chiare? È una donna e per le donne, si sa, è difficile essere prese sul serio in certi contesti. Quindi la vediamo sempre pensierosa a lanciare frasi sibilline che non stuzzicano la curiosità di nessuno, e perfino mentre rivela le vere macchinazioni su Krikkit Zaphod non trova di meglio da fare che commentare con un «Povera ragazza, non avrei mai dovuto lasciarla sola». Salvo che la povera ragazza se la caverà egregiamente da sola…

La Vita, l’Universo e Tutto Quanto, terzo volume di una trilogia in cinque libri, ci parla di Verità (con la quale pare abbiano a che fare delle rane), di Party lunghissimi (divertenti per chi ci va, un po’ meno per chi fornisce le risorse) e della Noia della vita eterna (che porta Wowbagger l’Eterno Prolungato in giro per l’Universo a insultarne uno per uno gli abitanti) più un sacco di altra roba che Adams riesce, non si sa bene come, a infilare tra le pagine.

This 3rd book of the Hitchhiker's Guide series fell mostly flat for me. Oh well... ( )

Adams delights in cosmic pratfalls, and if he sometimes loses track of his narrative, he more than makes up for it by confirming what many have suspected all along: "He learned to communicate with birds and discovered that their conversation was fantastically boring. It was all to do with wind speed, wingspans, power-to-weight ratios and a fair bit about berries."
