I'm shocked there hasn't been discussion of this on here. Eoin Colfer has written a sixth book to follow of from Doulas Adams's trilogy of 5. I was a little skeptic but decided to see what it would do. It is good to see Zaphod once again play a part in the plot and so far the book has been very enjoyable and though not written by the beloved creator of the books the characters do not act or speak in a manner they wouldn't and are completely faithful to the original books. Just a shame Marvin hasn't appeared (Yet anyway, half way through) as the manically depressed android is very much missed. I'd reccomend it to fans but don't expect Douglas' word play or humour to be there. the book is good but Colfer unfortunately not Adams. You may enjoy this book more it it has been a while since you read Hitchhikers and are going off memory.
