Book Review: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

The first time I read the Hitchhiker books there was a gap of several months between each volume.

The second time I read the series it was almost one after the other, yet I still had the same problem. Eventually, and certainly by the third reading, I realised it doesn’t really matter. Almost everything that happens to the characters is bizarre and inexplicable, yet somehow follows its own quirky internal logic.
