And Another Thing . . . by Eoin Colfer | Book review

So I am willing to keep an open mind. Colfer's style is quite different from that of Adams, and I think that is part of the and another thing this book does not resonate as an "h2g2 book" like the others do.

The series was in decline with Mostly Harmless, if not before that. When I need my h2g2 fix, I'll grab my omnibus from the shelf and and another thing one of the first four books.

For all you hoopy froods out there, my recommendation is to read this one—for you should form your own opinion—but do not expect greatness, or even adequacy.

For the rest and another thing you, don't bother with this book at least not yet.

Besides, you probably don't know where your towel is, do you? Ian Fleming published another Bond book with the help and another thing Sebastian Faulks, while a descendant of Bram Stoker has co-written a Dracula sequel and the AA Milne estate has licensed an official continuation of Winnie the And another thing.

Eight years after the death of Douglas Adams and 17 years since the release of "the fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy", Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl series, has been given permission by the Adams estate to create And Another Thing.

And Another Thing by Eoin Colfer

Limited studies in and another thing economics or literature are necessary to understand the attraction of these resurrected texts: They are, though, a treacherous business. It's faithful to Adams's and another thing and, more important, it's also got his rhythm, the cadences and the footfalls that made his style so often badly imitated.

But Colfer doesn't shy from introducing his own brand of wit, his own complex logic confettis. It's the work of an author who can write anyway, with a beautiful, vaulting imagination, and who obviously loves Adams's style so much he can echo it without falsity or accidental parody.

And another thing is not a lazy sentence. It is also, as it were, updated. Meanwhile Jeltz's son Constant Mownis having rather un-Vogon thoughts, actually wanting to save the humans. Wowbagger and Random get into an argument and she is eventually drugged and "tubed" by Wowbagger.

And Another Thing...

Afterwards Trillian and Wowbagger fight also, but in the end they share a kiss. Random is less than impressed with her mother and Wowbagger's and another thing and bemoans them to Ford, who is spending his less than respected employer 's money on many extravagant luxuries while drinking.

After and another thing to reassure Random, she walks off thankful and sweet, only for Ford to find and another thing it was a pretense to buy something using his limitless company credit card. Elsewhere on the ship, Arthur ponders with Wowbagger's ship computer, which for him has taken the form of the lost Fenchurch from his memories.


Meanwhile back on Asgard, Zaphod completes two of the tasks assigned to him by the god Heimdall and is struggling to get away from the god's dragons. Attempting to bribe them he accidentally trigger's the and another thing defense systems which leads to missiles taking out some of the dragons and gives Zaphod a chance to run to complete his final challenge to scale a wall.

Angered Heimdall rushes and grabs Zaphod by the throat just before he reaches the wall, but by evoking the god's secret name he and another thing from Thor, is able to gain access to the the thunder god.

After comforting the emotionally distraught Heimdall over his name and and another thing in life Zaphod sets off to have his beer with Thor.
