The Restaurant at the End of the Universe Book Review

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe book Review

This text may contain possible SPOILERS.

Synopsis: What do you intend to do when you arrive at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe? Devour the succulent steak of an ox that is offered as dinner or just get drunk on the powerful Pangalactic Dynamite, watching from the sidelines as everything ends in a fatal explosion?

Review: The continuation of the incredible adventures of Arthur Dent and his four friends across the Galaxy begins on board the ship Heart of Gold, heading for the nearest restaurant. Little do they know that they will be traveling through time, the outcome of which will be simply incredible.

I didn't fall in love with the first book in the series, but here I am continuing this crazy adventure of the crew of the ship Heart of Gold on their way to the restaurant at the end of the universe. The story of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy hasn't gripped me yet. Several times, my thoughts wandered away from reading and I had to reread that passage. It's still not clear what the series is about.

'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe' brings a very entertaining and intense narrative from the main characters. One of the coolest things about reading it is that you can imagine humans and aliens living together, sharing the same environments and exchanging experiences.

'The Restaurant at the End of the Universe' offered me a light and entertaining read. As with the first volume, there is no incredibly exciting adventure here, but the feeling of reading a children's book is still there.

I found the story much more contained than in the second volume. In the first book the events are random, with each page something more crazy and unpredictable happened, but in 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe' everything is more linear and the book focuses on opening up a story for a third volume, rather than delivering a complete story.

Douglas Adams' witty humor is repeated in the continuity of this story. The clueless moments and comic side of the author's writing are just as present as in the first book. I confess that I'm still not enjoying this universe and trying to understand why it's so famous, but maybe by the end of the saga I'll figure it out.
