Yesterday I finished reading The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams.

️Maybe not as ruthlessly original as, well, the original, but better than a Vogon poem.

Let the naysayers say their nays. Sure, it’s no Hitchhikers, but nothing was before, and nothing will be again. Unless we’re all living in a loop. In that case, Hitchhikers will, eventually, be Hitchhikers, again, er, for the first time.

I read it to my 1- and 3-year-old a little each day or so at bedtime. As I said when I started reading this book, I changed some words and skipped a few bits, but they could tell it was pretty silly, for a more a grown-up book than they’re used to.

Bottom line: It’s worth a read, which is a fair bit better than any of us should be saying about a lot of what’s written these days.

Including book reviews. 🙃
