Nach langem hin und her habe ich nach etwa der Hälfte abgebrochen. Und dabei wollte ich das Buch so gerne mögen! Ich mag den Autor, ich mag die Anhalter-Reihe, ich mag auch den Humor im Buch. Und trotzdem...
Vielleicht war es einfach zu wenig Story und zu viele (mehr oder minder komische) abschweifende, weit ausholende Anmerkungen. Immerhin knapp über 200 Seiten habe ich durchgehalten, der erste Teil der Serie wäre damit jetzt schon beendet.

Althought this was an enjoyable read, this is not as good as Douglas Adams' own work, which this purports to complete. The humour is repetitive and predictable. ( )

Mostly harmless. ( )

A valiant attempt to capture the spirit and style of the previous books, especially the first, with plenty of quotes from the Guide, and an, uh, unpredictable story.
Wowbagger is a great character
More details on Vogon culture
- Wish there was more focus on Arthur Dent
- Didn't care extremely much for some of the new characters

All in all, a funny book that I enjoyed, but (obviously) not on par with the original series. ( )

Epigraph
The storm had now definitely abated, and what thunder there was now grumbled over more distant hills, like a man saying "And another thing . . . " twenty minutes after admitting he's lost the argument. --Douglas Adams
We have travelled through space and time, my friends, to rock this house again. --Tenacious D.
Dedication
For Jackie, Finn, and Seán, who miss me when I am away, but not as much as I miss them. If you want to remind yourselves what I look like, there should be a picture of me at the back of this book.
First words
If you own a copy of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then one of the last things you would be likely to type into its v-board would be the very same title of that particular Sub-Etha Volume. (Prologue)
So far as we know . . . The Imperial Galactic Government decided, over a bucket of jeweled crabs one day, that a hyperspace expressway was needed in the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy. (First Chapter)

What could a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese have to do with all of this?

Book description
Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has not been entirely without incident.

Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate.

Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world's oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up...again.

And Another Thing...is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.
