The Great Expectation: The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

You would think a sci-fi geek like me would have read all of the books in this series, but I haven't. You would think that I would already know the plot line and some of the jokes because I hang out with sci-fi geeks, but I don't. The only thing I know about this book is that it was made into a movie and that it is supposed to be funny. I'm pretty sure it might be funny based on the fact there is a green planet looking thing on the cover sticking it's tongue out at me.

I'm actually looking forward to this book. It should be an interesting read. I hope that I enjoy it as much as other people seem to. I have a teen at the library who loves this series. He won't tell me anything about it. He said I have to read it myself to understand and then he started to giggle, which makes me think it's either a great read, or it's horrible and he wants me to suffer. I guess we will find out!


  1. This was a fantastic series! I think you'll enjoy it and most certainly will be quoting '42' for anything and everything... :)

  2. Oh, man. I forgot to tell you about Towel Day!
    I definitely think we should have an event at the library.
