The latest book written in Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, And Another Thing was written by Eoin Colfer due to Douglas' death, since he left behind no forwarding information with which to get contacted with.

I was struck by the bound dead tree (what the monkey descended inhabitants of "Earth*" refer to as books) printing upon entering one of their crude book selling markets referred to as Barn workers and Royals.
The most interesting, and somewhat improbable part of the the cover was the listing stating it was "Part 6 of Three", which can only leave me with the expectation that the indigenous species of this backwards mud ball have something of a poor possession of mathematics.

Anyway, that bit of fun apart, the book isn't bad.
Though, if you start reading it, the book features a section that was written by Douglas Adams at the start, and if you read that, and then go on to the rest of the book, it has a affect on the quality.

The greatest flaw of the book is, it wasn't written by Douglas Adams. It's still a good book, but the voice just isn't behind the words.
