Reading List: And Another Thing...

And Another Thing...
by Eoin Colfer

As the jacket says, this 2009 release is the "sixth of three" in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, the first not to be written by the late Douglas Adams. Sometime after publication, And Another Thing... became controversial in the same way that the excellent 2005 film was considered, which is bullocks, and is only an issue for people who somehow believe that the H2G2 experience began and ended with Adams by some kind of necessity. Any creation outlives its creators (sorry God!); if it doesn't, then it's not really worth it, unless you believe in a solely first-person existence. In any case, I fully intend to enjoy this new installment, and hope that many more are to come.
