Man into space

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams is a world famous story of rather unusual and fast paced events taking place in our very galaxy, Milkyway.  The book overall is a gift for humanity in its ingenuity. Some people may find it confusing and hard to understand from time to time, but it is wonderful in its own humor and situations. The humor in the book is excellent and I wonder how Adams has came up with all those incredible jokes, stories and characters. Of course as the book is sci-fi related it has tons of weird words and some of them are made up by the writer himself so you can’t really get a hold of them all the time. Reading it in finnish too helped me understand some things better. Aside from the odd words, the book has a awesome plot and storytelling. The book is also very dangerous as when you read it, you will VERY easily get hooked and sucked into the world of the books, be aware. I think that this is a book that everyone should read atleast once in their lives, for it is one of the best books I have read, and I’m just one in millions that think like me. So, I will give this book a strong 5 out of 5. Of course, every book has it flaws since nothing is perfect, but this one, is really close to being perfect. That said, I full heartily recommend this book for just everyone.

Challenging words:

Contemptuous = halventava

Ingenuity = nerokkuus

Void = tyhjyys

Unfathomability = käsittämättömyys

Giddily = huimaava

Perish = sortua

42 = The meaning of life.

    Nice title. Once again this is well written and really comprehensible text. It seems about your book review that you have enjoyed reading this book. Your review is relly good, but it could have been a bit longer. Also the books biography seems to be missing. On the whole your review is really good! Good job!
