88. (88)- The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, by Douglas Adams

This is a worthy sequel to the brilliant Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In fact, the idea of a Restaurant and the literal end of the universe is a pretty brilliant conceit, maybe Adams’ best. I’ll write more on Adams’ style when I get to my review of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but this novel definitely continues perfectly from where Hitchhiker’s left off.  

It’s light.  It’s a quick read and it makes me laugh throughout.  Adams so effortlessly writes a humorous romp through space and time that I’m not sure anyone could duplicate.  The entire series is worth your time.
