The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams

The Restaurant at the End of the UniverseTakeaway: The story keeps moving.  I like the humor as much or better than the first.  Not a stand alone book.

Purchase Links: Paperback, Kindle Edition, Kindle Edition of Ultimate (all five books) – Ultimate is only $9.17 while each individual book is $6.29.

I am slowly working my way through the five books in the series.  I am reading it from my Ultimate kindle edition (which I recommend, so much cheaper and I alway recommend kindle versions.)

The second book moves the story along fairly well.  I didn’t really laugh out loud with this book either, but I liked the humor.  It is a little subtler than the first book.

This books is focused on why the Earth exists.  Doesn’t completely solve the issue. But takes a few very interesting turns.


Single, most influential author for me as a child. I owe a great deal of my sense of humor and desire to write to Mr. Adams.

I still say the best-est version is the radio one, though the books are a close second.

Have you read his Dirk Gently books? The 1st one is possibly my favorite Adams book ever.

    I haven’t read that one. I in general really like audiobooks. I should try one of these as audio.

      if you’re on audible, here’s the radio version:

      I must say I’m definitely biased as I can’t remember the first time I heard the radio version way back in the long ago days of my youth – it was broadcast on NPR at some point – but I do remember the 1st time I read the books around the age of 14 or so.

      I think the books take the story further, and revisiting everybody was so very cool and hilarious
