Das Restaurant am Ende des Universums The second strike of the prime example of how Sci Fi, fantasy, humor, philosophy, and criticism can be fused to an intergalactic road trip.Including time manipulation, end of time, relativity of death and afterlife, monetarization of the end of the universe, human evolution and what may have influenced it, madness coming out of the insight of one s unimportance concerning the cosmic scale, etc., Adams covers a large range of topics in a small amount of pages and mixes it with fabulous character The second strike of the prime example of how Sci Fi, fantasy, humor, philosophy, and criticism can be fused to an intergalactic road trip.Including time manipulation, end of time, relativity of death and afterlife, monetarization of the end of the universe, human evolution and what may have influenced it, madness coming out of the insight of one s unimportance concerning the cosmic scale, etc., Adams covers a large range of topics in a small amount of pages and mixes it with fabulous character description, dialogues, and weird protagonist premises.Dissecting satire is no fun, but a difficult and highly subjective endeavor and it seems to me as if Adams has packed eveninnuendos to grievances into it than in the first,light hearted part of his legendary series Not dark, but a bitin the grey area.It s very difficult to choose the best part of the series, but I would prefer this one because it needs no further explanation and goes directly into different plots and the epic ending gives deep insights in human cultural evolution and let s one ask the question whose weirdos descendents we might be.Alien 1 I bet you might not dare to mix your genetic code with those primates because of the non interference laws and ethical issues Alien 2 Hold my beer Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres unique There is theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something evenbizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened Arthur Dent and his companions went through some bizarre and inexplicable adventures after the Earth got blown to bits by Vogons in the opening sequence of the series They were probably too close to making sense of their situ There is theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something evenbizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened Arthur Dent and his companions went through some bizarre and inexplicable adventures after the Earth got blown to bits by Vogons in the opening sequence of the series They were probably too close to making sense of their situation, because Douglas Adams decided to turn it all around for the sequel.Is is not an easy claim to make that the second Hitchhiker book is better than the previous one, since there was nothing wrong with the first one Yet, for various reasons, I ended up reading it faster and enjoying itIt may be the fact that there is actually a plot, like searching for the ruler of the universe as opposed to searching for a philosophical answer to the ultimate question It may be that the jokes are better anchored in the actual story and feel less like an improvised skit It may be that most of the characters are already established and we get less exposition andaction For me though, I guess the main attraction is to discover Adams hardcore nugget of humanism that holds it all together, like the black hole at the center of our Galaxy Douglas Adams first points out to us how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things, how tiny our problems are from the perspective of the Cosmos Once he got us well and truly scared, he comes out with his guide to Life , The Universe and Everything, and puts on its cover the words Don t Panic We may not understand everything there is to know about these issues, but we re alive, we are gifted with reasoning, and we might as well enjoy the rideThe Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy is an indispensable companion to all those who are keen to make sense of life in an infiniteley complex and confusing Universe, for though it cannot hope to be useful or informative on all matters, it does at least make the reassuring claim, that where it is inaccurate it is at least definitively inaccurate In cases of major discrepancy it s always reality that s got it wrong While the main quest may be the search for the man who rules the universe, there are enough mishaps and side quests to make the journey highly entertaining We make a visit to the main offices of the publishers of the Hitchiker Guide, where my favorite scene describes an encounter with the artificial intelligence of a Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Happy Vertical People TransporterNot unnaturally, many elevators imbued with intelligence and precognition became terribly frustrated with the mindless business of going up and down, up and down, experimented briefly with the notion of going sideways, as a sort of existential protest, demanded participation in the decision making process and finally took to squatting in basements sulking.An impoverished hitchhiker visiting any planets in the Sirius star system these days can pick up easy money working as a counselor for neurotic elevators Marvin the Paranoid Android and this acrophobic elevator are a great reminder for me that intelligence has its shortcomings, and needs to be balanced by other personality traits We accompany Zaphod on a forced visit to a penal planet, where he is to be punished for stealing the most advanced spaceship in the universe by undergoing a session in the Total Perspective Vortex device This torture machine is supposed to demonstrates conclusively that if life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion To see the whole infinity of creation is to go instantly mad, unless view spoiler your name is Zaphod Beeblebrox and you ego is just as big as the Universe hide spoilerInfinite Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, real wow, that s big time Infinity is just so big that, by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we re trying to get across herewe have dinner and drink Pan Galactic Gargleblasters at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, while we witness the unravelling of all existence and grapple with the absurd gramatical rules needed to express the upheaval of timelines , the mixing of the past with the future when after during before the present ceases to exist we meet the ghost of one of Zaphod s ancestors, who comes up with what is probably the best one liner yet in the series Life is wasted on the living We attend the ultimate rock concert by the band Disaster Area whose leader, Hotblack Desiato, is spending a year dead in order to avoid paying taxes Wthout giving away to many spoilers, the band is famous for using whole planets and astral bodies for special effects during their live performances we get to meet the ruler of the universe, which might explain why it is so hard to make sense of it view spoiler doubt everything and be wary of people who think they have all the answersI couldn t trust the thinking of a man who takes the Universe if there is one for grantedhide spoiler we find refuge from another explosive misunderstanding in space on a Golgafrinchan Ark Ship, carrying a third of the population of their home planet away from an iminent if unexplained cataclysm and heading towards a tiny blue dot located in the unfashionable end of a spiral arm of our galaxy.At the end of the second Hitchhiker installment, I might feel like I am starting to make sense of the Universe, including an explanation of how intelligent life blossomed on Earth, but I expect Douglas Adams has a few surprises up his sleeve for the next novel I can t wait to find out.The word genius comes to mind easier and easier when describing his talent, and I don t mean it only in the slapstick, satirical way His one liners reach much deeper than the superficial layers of my awarenessIf human beings don t keep exercising their lips, their brains start working

Heart of Gold s computer is too busy making the perfect cup of tea, to defend the vessel.Thanks to the thirsty Mr.Dent, a man must have his beverage The only bright side is that the Englishman gets the best tea, he s ever hadWith the crew having only a few moments to live, the great grandfather of Zaphod s is someways conjured up by Beeblebrox He can t explain it either Great grandpa isn t very happy, observing the stupidity of his great grandson Four generations and what a blockhead, it has produced And an ill timed lecture on his relative s shameful habits, complicates things But blood is blood and with the desperate, nervous encouragement of the rest of the gang, he sends them in their merry, separate ways Marvin and the former president, vanishing from the bridge And the craft travels many light years away, from the rather dangerous somewhat bleak situation Zaphod materializes on distant Ursa Minor Beta, a planet where it s always a sunny afternoon, along also his not so fun but gloomy robot companion Marvin, and his constant bad moods Arriving in a bar he s amazed, speechless, shocked still the gentleman is no stranger to such an environment and soon feels right at home after a couple of good drinks And on this world is the wonderful headquarters of The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Mr.Beeblebrox has an overpowering mysterious urge to see he doesn t know why , Mr.Zarniwoop the editor Yet there are problems, they re always some, the sweet talking elevator won t take them to the 15th floor Even asks if they wouldn t prefer going in the opposite direction, down Strange behavior for this machine, some kind of premonition The reason becomes apparent soon after an attack from the galaxy s forces, not happy with our former leader s actions Despite the gallant efforts of Marvin s, they take the whole huge building and transports it to the worst place in the Milky Way, the Frogstar planet What a dump A voice tells him to come on down from the 15th floorHe does, very slowly and enters a structure on the dreary surface, will that kill him Maybe or maybe not He s hungry, slightly tired and would prefer to be in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Milliways where they see the end of the universe show ever night with a celebrity host Reasonable prices too, a great view of the entertainment if you can get a good table and join his friends for a few libations.The only heaven, which our not quite perfect hero knows Poor Marvin I m glad our heroes are exploring space and time but poor Marvin I was talking to a friend of mine the
