I don't hate this book, I just found it kinda boring and pointless. Compared to Hitchhikers Guide the Galaxy, it was a bit of a let down.

dividing the book into three parts: the initial, middle, and the last, i can say i liked only the middle section. the first part keeps trying a bit too hard to be funny but doesn't really get there. the middle part is the best part- philosophically sound, profound, funny, a hilarious socio-economic, theo- philosophical satire. the best we know Adams for. Can it get any better!
the concluding part is the most disappointing. it gives a fairytale-like 'happily ever after' feel by trying to force sense and conclusion. only that it doesn't feel out of place in a fairy-tale.
.
i loved reading the book, but the ending was a turn off.
will i read the next book in the series? of course, I will.
