The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (1979)

Zanier and more funny than the similar The Sirens of Titan (1959).

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (1980)

Douglas Adams (writer).

Adams felt this was the best of the novels, and he’s probably right; it does cohere with and conclude the original and it reworks the end of the radio series well enough.

Adams loses the plot, such as it was.
