NOTICE: I think I should pause my reading here because I need to go to search for non-fiction books. I’ll see you another day. 😀
What am I doing here you said? Why am I here reading a new book instead of finishing the last book’s logbook? Oh yeah, I’ll certainly do it. Later. (Edited: Guess what? I finally did it! Woo-hoo! Throw me flowers! Gimme your congrats!)
So, about this book. I don’t remember how exactly I stumbled upon this book. I just already have the e-book on my phone. Haha. I thought back about the book and I remembered someone said that the author is an atheist. I am not very keen of reading a book with atheism sprinkled all around it, but I guess I’ll try it out. At least, I already know there will be some atheist flavor in it so I can be more careful.
This book is a comedy sci-fi book which was initially a comedy series from a radio station. It is the first book of the Hitchhiker trilogy (though, there are five books. Lol). Many said that the book is really good and funny. Well, let us see about that. It’s very hard to make me laugh out loud for real, you know? I usually laugh out loud at my own lame jokes where no one really laughs. 😂
Here is a peek from the book’s introduction:
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the west-
ern spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting
this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignifi-
cant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly
primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
This planet has – or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the
people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were
suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the
movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole
it wasn’t the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of
them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.
