I would love to give this more stars, simply because I like Eoin Colfer's writing in general and the idea of Hitchhiker's is not half-bad, but after rereading the previous volumes in this series, I have come to understand that it is only mildly amusing and the rest just rather bores me. Which is not fun. I can understand that others enjoy this style of writing, but it wears on me. So, I guess the real problem with this book is that, in my opinion, Eoin succeeds too
well in imitating Douglas Arthur's original work and style.
I did really enjoy the bit about the cows that wanted to be eaten though:)
