Journal Entry 1 by Nell-Lu from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Tuesday, February 26, 2008
Funny and anarchic.

From the back cover:

"What do a dead cat, a computer whiz-kid, an Electric Monk who believes the world is pink, quantum mechanics, a Chronologist over 200 years old, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (poet), and pizza have in common?

"Apparently not much: until Dirk Gently, self-styled private investigator, sets out to prove the fundamental interconnectedness of all things by solving a mysterious murder, assisting a mysterious professor, unravelling a mysterious mystery, and eating a lot of pizza -- not to mention saving the entire human race from extinction along the way (at no extra charge)."

Finally got around to read it, so here are my thoughts...

A funny book yet a bit complicated, as the author loves to go from one story to another without really announcing it. Of course, everything unravels towards the end and we must be patient, as a lot of the things going on seem non-essential but somehow play a role in the outcome. Besides, there’s not much to say about it, besides the fact that I had a great time reading it and quite curious to read the two other books in the series…

I have pm'ed the next bcer so hopefully this week, the book will be mailed to the next reader.

EDIT: the book is now travelling to the next bcer, as of nov 29th.

Thanks for sending me the book. It was waiting for me when I arrived home from a business trip. I should have journaled Friday but this is the first opportunity I've had.

I have two others books to finish before starting this one.
