I read The Hitchhiker’s Guide a few years back with the intention of reading the entire five part trilogy. I think I made it through the second part, but sputtered midway through the third. The recent movie version rekindled my interest, so I revisited the sci-fi classic. It’s probably the best book that destroys the Earth in the first 20 pages. There’s some cute humor, a few jabs at government and philosophy, and a unique creation story. I’m not sure if this was intended at all, but the theme that comes to me is not to take ourselves too seriously. If that’s the point, then maybe I should read it again.
