Default And Another Thing [Spoilers for the whole "Trilogy"]

So I've been trying to read this off and one but it seems more of a chore than if Adams wrote it. I have 3 chapters left and can't figure out if I should finish the book or not. I have read the wiki entry but that hasn't stopped me before reading a book and or finish one.

What's everyone's take on this? Wowbanger seems annoying like Zhapod so why does Trillan go along with these kinds of guys? I'm not expecting anything like what was in the movie though it was nice to Aurthur with Tricia. Also Fenchurch disappearing was annoyance as well.... He couldn't name Random normally instead? I wish he wrote one before his eventually demise since we all die at some point even if we don't want them to go.

Mainly the recent book although write whatever you want on the series...

Nobody has read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy or even the new one?

I stopped with chapter 10 in And Another Thing... and might finish it some point but I'm not going to go out of my way to read it.

it should have ended before this instead we get something by a different author with a different sense of characters that weren't his originally...

I read this book and was taken hugely by surprise with how good it was. I found it to be almost identical to Adams, and even surpassed some of the weaker books of the "trilogy."

I'm surprised that it took more than a year for someone to post.

I wonder if anyone else has read it. I still haven't read the last two chapters even though I got it from the library again to do that but in the end I'm never going to read those chapters so I'm not going to force myself to.

Anyway I guess primarily it feels wrong without his involvement in it. At least you found it enjoyable.
