Rezensionen

Fun and original at the beginning it slowly gets tiring and annoying to read his chaotic style. Gave up after the third part or so. One of very few books (3 in total) I didn't finish

Der Humor des Buchs hat mir leider gar nicht zugesagt - zu pubertär. Die Verfilmung wird dem Buch gerecht, deshalb musste ich dauernd an den Film denken. Wer es mag...

Einfach super, auch wenn es nicht komplett von Douglas Adams selbst stammt.

Ich hab mir fast den Arsch weggelacht. Die Geschichten rund um die Expedition sind einfach zu geil. Zum Beispiel die Nacht im Hotel auf Bali ("es hatte etwas von einem Ausdauertest..."), oder der Aufenthalt auf dem Flughafen in Afrika. Unbedingt lesen! Es lohnt sich.
