Thirty years of celebrating the comic genius of Douglas Adams...

There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It's not an easy thing to do and Arthur Dent thinks he's the only human who's been able to master this nifty little trick – until he meets Fenchurch, the girl of his dreams.

Fenchurch knows how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately she's forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God's Final Message to His Creation they go in search of it.

And – in a dramatic break with tradition – actually find it...

Volume four in the trilogy of five (back cover)

Review of 'So long, and thanks for all the fish' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

A favorite, repeatedly read to the point that I find I'm reading it and remembering it in parallel, a bit unstuck in time. Perfect for reading aloud, or on a damp day to one's self while covered in cats. Mostly, I can't pick it up without remembering at every moment that this is probably the clearest view of humanity I have seen, and likely will ever see.

Joy and horror and laughter, all together.
