This is one of the funniest novels I have ever read. Ever.
[Why I read it: I enjoyed the first Dirk Gently novel.]
The plot was kind of all over the place and the characters were not well-developed, but nobody’s funnier than Douglas Adams.
[Why I read it: I’m a fan of Stephen Mangan, who played the title character in a funny TV version of the book series which put the books on my radar.]
