So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish by Douglas Adams

June 2, 2008

Years later, I still think of this as the final book in the Hitchhikers series. I can’t internalise Mostly Harmless as part of the group. Am I the only one who does this?

So Long.. is the footnote to the original trilogy, a sort of answer to the “yes.. and?’ question that may have arisen for some after Life, the Universe and Everything. Arthur finds himself back on Earth, the same old Earth but for a few important differences. Ford is still bumming around the galaxy, but notes his article on a certain insignificant blue-green orb undergoing revision, and Marvin is still Marvin.

This book provides another helping of the feed enjoyed so much over the first three books, and as such does not disappoint. Also, we get to see God’s Final Message to His Creation, which is nice.
