Humour, Random Fiction

The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (Dirk Gently #2) by Douglas Adams


I reviewed or attempted to review the previous book of the series here : Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency . I encourage you to read the first review before proceeding, in order to get an idea of what you might be heading in to this review.

Now that you are back from that review I will pick up from the last sentence as if it has only been a couple of days since I wrote that last line. I was reminded of this book when I saw a friend of mine ( who incidentally only found time recently, to recommend another book that she really enjoyed and I have it now in my possession) rate it on Goodreads and I thought it was high time I get to wrapping up the series, since it turn out the third book is unfinished.

This story had more clarity than the electric monk in the first installment. We had more information than a lot of the people within the tale. The fun part of reading a book such as this is that each line is its own unique statement, which exists for the sole purpose of sounding completely random(while not being so). Dirk Gently has a new case but is a little too late in reaching his assigned location. On the other hand a flight to Oslo has a side-show which completely confuses everyone. How the two are connected and what Dirk will do with the information he has, is what the book is about.

If you have not yet given this series a try, I definitely recommend it!
