Blogging A to Z Day 12 – Longest Book I’ve Ever Read

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

It’s funny how I can read the shortest book on the planet, but when it comes to a longer book, I just can’t do it. I’m talking about books that are like 500 pages or more! It’s not that I don’t have the time, because lord knows I could spend hours upon hours reading blogs or watching Netflix, it’s just that my brain feels like it might explode after a while. Am I the only one this happens to? Or is there someone out there who also struggles with reading long books? If so, please share your tips with me because I seriously need help! 🙂

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Five Novels in One Outrageous

by Douglas Adams

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read)
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
The moment before annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.

Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky– so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription thrusts him back to reality. So to speak.

Mostly Harmless
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?

Includes the bonus story “Young Zaphod Plays It Safe”

Douglas Adams (1952-2001) was the much-loved author of the Hitchhiker’s Guides, all of which have sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.

I’m not a huge science fiction reader, but I decided to pick up the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy because my college roommate wouldn’t stop talking about it. And I’m glad I did because it is one of the most hilarious books I’ve ever read The story follows the adventures of an earthling who is transported to a strange alien ship. To be honest, I was worried that it would be a bit too out there for me. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The book is hilarious, and I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. The book is full of humor, witty satire, absurdist humor, and science fiction references that had me laughing out loud. It’s also a quick read, which is perfect for busy college students and moms who don’t have a lot of time for leisure reading. If you’re looking for a science fiction book that will make you laugh and think, I highly recommend the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Science fiction books are definitely not for everyone. I know a lot of people who just can’t get into them, and that’s perfectly fine. But if you’re into science fiction books, then you’ll love it. I’m a not big fan of science fiction myself, and I always find myself laughing at the hilarious things that happen in these books. Comedy and science fiction go hand-in-hand, in my opinion, and it’s one of the things that makes these books so great. So if you’re looking for a good laugh, and you’re into science fiction, then definitely pick up a copy. You won’t be disappointed.

If you’re looking for a good book to read, I would highly recommend The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It definitely took some time to get through, but it was worth it in the end. The story is hilarious and full of surprises. If you’re into science fiction, you’ll love it. Have you read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I read a fair amount of science fiction, including this. I, too, found it amusing. And of course it prompts me often to respond when asked what the answer is: 42. It’s so much easier when you know the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, isn’t it?
