Book Review: "Mostly Harmless" by Douglas Adams

Updated: Oct 20, 2020

After digesting Douglas Adams' fifth and final book in The Hitchhiker's Guide series, "Mostly Harmless," I feel a sense of accomplishment. Though this last book was a bit confusing at times, Adams' unparalleled world of intergalactic mish mash didn't disappoint. His writing style changed a bit. It is a tad grim and somewhat lacks the clever word play readers grew so accustomed to, but there are still the space oddities we so love to read about, along with a newfound sense of wonder as the main characters gear up toward a finale that will not leave a reader guessing.

If you have read the rest of the books in the series, I dare say you're missing out if you don't read "Mostly Harmless." Even though it's different from the rest, you won't know how it all ends until you grab your trusty towel and dive on in. Just remember, Don't Panic. Or Panic. 🤷‍♀️
