I'm rereading the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which was among my favorite books from my youth. So far, it's been very worthwhile. I'm relating to Arthur Dent much more as a neurotic adult than I did as a neurotic teenager. I remembered the book as very humorous and rich, and I was not mistaken. I've read about five chapters aloud to my nephew, and he seems to be enjoying it.
I didn't remember how much alcohol is in this book. I was a little surprised.
Anyway, I haven't read quite enough to discuss it in more detail. I will say that I love the clever tone of the book, and yes I do in fact sass that hoopy frood.
