BOOK REVIEW: And Another Thing…. by Eoin Colfer – 3.5 stars

And Another Thing... (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #6)And Another Thing… by Eoin Colfer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

To those thinking this is written by Douglas Adams, it isn’t. I still think you should give it a chance.

3.5 stars.

So. I do see a lot of 1 star reviews here, and while that is completely understandable, it takes a lot for me to give a book a bad rating.

This book made me laugh, and it was complex, and although it didn’t quite have the same feeling as Hitchhiker’s Guide – which of course, was written by Douglas Adams, and not Eoin Colfer like this one is – it did pretty well in my mind.

And although I could re-read the Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ten times over (because, I think we can all agree, it was brilliant), I kind of found it interesting to see a footnote on the whole series, despite it being written by someone else.

This doesn’t hold up when you measure it against the books written by Douglas Adams; of course it wouldn’t!

But as far as inspired-by stories could’ve gone, it actually was very well-written, and the characters came alive in my head. And that’s all that really matters when you’re reading, right? At least, mainly.
