    This is an exceptionally clever, laugh aloud book. What else could it be when it's written by a collaboration of two geniuses in their own right. I would recommend the audiobook version. The narrator does a terrific job with the voices and adds to the overall enjoyment.

    i liked it but it was a bit to British for me. I had to look up terms and that killed the immersion for me. Witty yes. Clever yes. Funny yes. But besides crowley i didn't feel too much for the characters and Douglas Adams did this in spades. Not the best i will try another off your list.
