I was in need of a bit of frivolity in my reading, and I knew just where to turn to. The third book in the “trilogy” and we’re following more adventures with Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent. Firstly, we have to get them off prehistoric Earth, which is where we left them, but that problem is easily handled.

Interestingly, there seems to be less in the way of adventuring in this third book, and more of a history lesson - albeit a history of something that could only happen in a Douglas Adams book, the true story behind cricket.

More than in the previous two, I felt like a lot of this went over my head, which made me a bit disappointed in myself. It was still very enjoyable, but for the first time I’m left thinking I might wait a while before reading any more.
