I feel awful. Terrible. Disappointed and misinformed.
I’ve had The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams on my “to read” list for years. Surprisingly my best friend bought it for me for Christmas and I was ecstatic to start it but unbeknownst to me; I would actually dislike it.
I won’t say “hate” because that’s a strong word but I can tell you I got maybe 30 pages in before I gave up. It’s wordy and at times trying so hard to be witty I was left just plain confused. I had to read sentences twice, then paragraphs over and even start again from the beginning of a page because I felt lost.
It’s my personal opinion but I don’t understand the hype behind this story, I won’t even bother to watch the movie because I already know it won’t be of interest to me.
It sucks, I thought I was going to be able to jump on the bandwagon with this one.
