Douglas Adams underated masterpiece leads Dirk Gently from a search for a missing cat to unlocking the secrets of time travel and saving the human race from total extinction I thought no one could write a better comic novel than The Hitch Hiker s Guide to the Galaxy until I first read this I ve subseuently re read this novel countless times and it never fails to entertain I m still finding references to literature and popular culture that I ve previously missed That a novel can be re read despite the reader knowing what is about to happen is a testement to any novel but this one can be re read with a suspition that something different will happen this time

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency free read ✓ 0 Harry Enfield and Billy Boyd star in a brand new full cast dramatisation of Douglas Adams' first Dirk Gently book directed by the award winning Dirk MaggsDirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all thing. Is it an audacious thing to say that Mr Douglas Adams is hit or missYes Well audacious not reallyGood Here is a fun and I mean FUN book rife with what is absurd and comical in certain sciences that dictate what the world is I know my math teacher in high school was mad about him And it does seem as though there is an intended niche audience already built for this type of literature literary than say Piers Anthony but not character driven nor truly dearly dramatic There is much confusion and this is also part of its whimsical charm but the coming together seems so tight so like a mathematical euation solved and just done for although there is that infamous to be continued at its conclusion this is giving nothing away I m caustic toward these post Lewis Carroll productions wasn t a rabid fan of Hitchhiker s for instance but I won t mind reading Dirk Gently 2 When that type of mood actually finds me

review Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency free read ✓ 0 S but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely and he's drawn into a four billion year old mystery that must be solved if t. I discovered Douglas Adams by coincidence I found his book Last Chance to See co written by Mark Cawardine about animals near extinction and Douglas and Mark s trip around the world to see some of them in a box with M ngelexemplare old books sometimes not in top condition that are therefore sold at a reduced price His humour stood out even in the German translation and when I told a friend about it she told me all about an odd sounding story about a guy hitchhiking across the galaxy and something about the number 42 Since I ve always been an odd duck I went and bought that book too in the English original this time and have read The Hitchhiker s Guide To The Galaxy once every year May 25th to be exact ever sinceHowever despite having heard of Dirk Gently too I have never picked up these books for some weird reason I m glad I rectified this now because although I LOVE Hitchhiker this is actually betterDouglas Adams has not just been a British author with the usually expected British humour Sure he had a dry wit but also a mind as sharp as a katana and the observations about humanity that he put into his books while being disguised as silly dialogue or even sillier happenings are always very deep reflective and spot onSo this story is about the titular Dirk Gently although that is only the most recent in a long list of names he s used He doesn t even make an appearance for the first uarter of the book actually Mr Gently believes in the interconnectedness of all things therefore he named his detective agency Dirk Gently s Holistic Detective AgencyIt s this interconnectedness that has to be proven when a former friend of his with a sofa being stuck halfway up the way to his apartment gets bored half to death at the annual reading of a Coleridge poem THE Coleridge poem I should say at Cambridge university then witnesses a conjuring trick by one of his old professors finds a horse in the bathroom of that same professor after it finally got rid of its rider an Electric Monk and finally gets caught up in a very weird murder involving his boss followed by people acting strangely indeed You re confused GoodIt s a bit like watching Doctor Who and getting all of your brain in a tight knot but you know exactly that it will all make perfect sense in the endAs I said silliness abound in DA s book but all the silliness serves a purpose and that is what makes this book not only entertaining but actually intellectually challenging and bloody perfect Especially eccentric Dirk Gently himself with his weirdness actually makes perfect sense it s the world that is bonkersThus we end up with gems like the following some of my favourite bits that I marked in the book Electric Monks believed things for you thus saving you what was becoming an increasingly onerous task that of believing all the things the world expected you to believeIt is difficult to be sat on all day every day by some other creature without forming an opinion about themOn the other hand it is perfectly possible to sit all day every day on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoeverSo two legs were held to be both suitable and cheaper than the normal primes of seventeen nineteen or twenty three the skin the Monks were given was pinkish looking instead of purple soft and smooth instead of crenellated They were also restricted to just one mouth and nose but were given instead an additional eye making for a grand total of two A strange looking creature indeed But truly excellent at believing the most preposterous thingsShe tried to worry that something had happened to him but didn t believe it for a moment Nothing terrible ever happened to him though she was beginning to think that it was time it damn well did If nothing terrible happened to him soon maybe she d do it herself coincidences are strange and dangerous things there is a huge difference between disliking somebody maybe even disliking them a lot and actually shooting them strangling them dragging them through the fields and setting their house on fire It was a difference which kept the vast majority of the population alive from day to dayThis was a public telephone so it was clearly an oversight that it was working at allOnly a child sees things with perfect clarity because it hasn t developed all those filters which prevent us from seeing things that we don t expect to see normal English condition that of a damp and rancid dish cloth he believed with an instant effortlessness which would have impressed even a ScientologistIt disturbs me very greatly when I find that I know things and do not know why I know them Maybe it is the same instinctive processing of data that allows you to catch a ball almost before you ve seen it Maybe it is the deeer and less explicable instinct that tells you when someone is watching youAnd Mrs Roberts How is she Foot still troubling herNot since she had it off thanks for asking sir Between you and me sir I would ve been just as happy to have had her amputated and kept the foot I had a little spot reserved on the mantlepiece but there we are we have to take things as we find themThe cry I could have thought of that is a very popular and misleading one for the fact is that they didn t and a very significant and revealing fact it is tooCharitable ha said Dirk I pay my taxes what do you wantOne thing I could also identify with immensely was this description of Susan She had an amazing emotional self sufficiancy and control provided she could play her cello He had noticed an odd and extraordinary thing about her relationship with the music she played If ever she was feeling emotional or upset she could sit and play some music with utter concentration and emerge seeming fresh and calmOnly in my case the cello has to be replaced by books and playing music by reading But yes a very precise description of meOh and despite me being too young to know too much about what it was like with the very first computers being sold it was so cool to read about all the technical stuff because I know from interviews and Neil Gaiman s biography of Douglas Adams what a techie computer enthusiast he was plus from a historical point of view alone it must have been pretty excitingSo you see not just a thrilling writing style with engaging and uirky characters but also wit dry enough to start a wildfire that illuminates a wide range of important topics making the reader not only laugh but also reflect all while you re having the time of your lifeHonestly no idea why this is rated lower than Hitchhiker because despite me being a huge fan I even bought a towel and stitched 42 and Don t Panic onto it and carry it with me every Towel Day I am firmly sold on Dirk Gently and think this first volume beats the first of the 5 volumes in the Hitchhiker trilogy
