Book Review – The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams

The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (Dirk Gently, #2)The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quirky. Crazy and just about everything in between. This is the first of the Dirk Gently books I have read and I love this genre. I have always enjoyed Robert Rankin’s books of the same kind of nature, the mystery, the not-really-sure-what’s-going-on at a given moment, the long gags, the outlandish plots and characters.

For The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul it all comes together in a magical journey that just keeps tugging you along and along. This is some top fiction, everything very cleverly interwoven. I will probably have to go back and re-read it at some point because I’m sure there’s plenty of nuances within the plot that I missed.

I didn’t give it a five star rating, because I did feel just a little bit let down at the end. It was a sense of wanting things just to be a little more climactic I guess. Other than that, right from the get go in the first chapter you know you are in for some ride, and some ride it is.
