Filed under: Books, Sci-Fi — Loes @ 9:30 pm

I’m currently reading the book: “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” written by Douglas Adams, recommended by a couple of my mates. So far I’m on chapter 4 and incredibly amused by one of the main characters:  Ford Prefect. Even though I’m not nearly halfway through the novel, I highly recommend it to anyone, you don’t even really have to be a fan of Sci-Fi and such. What I find most interesting about the book is how Earth, the very planet which is pretty much the only thing we know, is described as the most insignificant bouncing ball, floating around somewhere in this tiny, irrelevant solar system. How human culture is ridiculed; for instance, how ‘aliens’ describe money as ’small green pieces of paper. I’m really curious to see where the story will go from where I’m at. I hear there’s also a movie based on the novel out there, might want to pick that up sometime soon, too (:

This planet has — or rather had — a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn’t the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.” – Introduction, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Yours truthfully,
