This is definitely my favourite series of books ever - and it's irritating how many people have watched the film but not read the books. I understand that some people simply do not enjoy reading, and that is completely fair enough, but when people who actively read and have watched the movie haven't read the books, it does make me wonder what is running through their heads. If you've actually read the books, you'll know why the bowl of petunias thinks "Oh no, not again." Which is probably one of my favourite themes of the books. And also some of the points that Adams gets across in such are humourous way can be quite thought-provoking.

I guess you know that Douglas Adams wrote a few Doctor Who episodes, for this is the ultimate ********.

As someone who doesn't own the books myself, could you explain why the petunias think that?

SPOILER ALERT

Basically, there is one being who keeps being killed by Arthur all the way through the books and each time he simply reincarnates as a new being, which is again killed by Arthur Dent. When Arthur hits the infinite improbability drive, said being is incarnated as the bowl of petunias and it's again Arthur's fault that he dies because Arthur pressed the button. ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT: The world ends shortly after Arthur causes the being's death for the final time in a club on earth.

I'm still undecided on whether or not I enjoyed the ending. It was fairly anti-climactic iirc, however I was fairly young when I finished the fifth and final book of the trilogy so it's quite possible I just missed something along the way.

I agree, I think Adams was losing it slightly by the time he got to Mostly Harmless. Having said that, I still enjoyed it, even if the ending was anticlimatic as you said. One of my least favourite things, however; is that he never finds Fenchurch - mainly out of sympathy for Arthur, I think.

Oh, definitely! I didn't mean for it to come across as slagging off the film - it's a good watch and I'd recommend it to anyone, I just personally prefer the books. Having said that, I always tend to prefer books over films, so I suppose it's my personal preference.

I'd highly recommend them, although I will warn you now - some bits may require reading more than once to fully understand them. His writing style can be very convoluted at times. Still a great author though.

Well I remember what the movie is but I can't remember if I ever sat down to watch the entire thing or just saw bits and pieces.

Plus do movies ever do the books justice?

2 examples I can think of off the top of my head since they are 2 of my favorite series so far.

Darren Shan's-Cirque Du Freak
Rick Riordan's-Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief
