Reviews of The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Phillip Marlowe meets Ford Prefect...

by boomstick on Apr 10, 2008

I had the feeling the whole time reading this book that there would not be enough pages to wrap up it's amazingly complex plot! Yet, as outrageous and complicated as the story sometimes got, I was always grounded by the well developed and believable characters, particularly Dirk Gently. As a huge fan of both detective novels and comedy, I found this book to be a very clever combination of the crime novel form and brilliantly satirical wit which resulted in a refreshing new approach to the genre. Douglas Adams has been a favorite author since the very first sentence of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and The Dirk Gently series is every bit as entertaining and insightful, brilliantly written and well thought out. I recommend it highly!
