Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com

I was previously unfamiliar with Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently (although of course I've read The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy & The Restaurant at the End of the Universe), but I found the idea of all things being somehow connected intriguing, so I wanted to give it a try.

To say it nicely, I was seriously underwhelmed by this graphic novel. It didn't do anything for me. The story was weird and random, sure, which to some extend I had expected. But it left me confused and it didn't make too much sense. The art was not something that stood out for me either.

Maybe I didn't get the book. It certainly wasn't for me.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

No, this is not Dirk Gently!
Nothing like the original, no soul.
Doesn't sit comfortably in California, nor in cartoon form for me.
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Diamond Book Distributors via Net Galley in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 163140508X, Paperback)

After writing all the many and conflicting versions of the legendary "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.

In his first-ever comic series, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.
