Yay! The last book is done! The last book is done! Now I’ll be able to get through books faster and bring you guys more beauty reviews and book reviews. I usually linked the previous posts about this series for you guys in the post, but I have to hurry up and get this post out because I have an online interview soon.
This last novel felt really flat to me. As you guys know, from my last novel post, I enjoyed the last novel a bit more because Arthur got a love interest. Well, she’s already gone now. Poof! Man, Arthur just can’t win. Basically, this novel wraps up the series by seeing what would would have happened if Trillian never went off with Zaphod. This version of her is known as Tricia. Unfortunately, her other timeline version (Trillian) still exists as well. Meanwhile, the Volgons (who originally blew up the Earth in the first novel) are cooking up something sinister in order to get all our characters together in order to finish what they started.
You can probably see where this ending is going, which makes for a very depressing series. I give this novel 1 out 5 stars and gave the overall series a 2 out of 5 stars. Some of the more interesting characters are also M.I.A. by the end of the series (Marvin is dead and Zaphod is gone). As I mentioned before, my main problem with this series is that I was expecting more science fiction and I got more humor. I also found the story line to be quite confusing and I had to Wikki every novel after I had read it. All and all, I’m glad I am done and can move on. But I certainly understand the popularity of the interesting humor of this series.
