Having read the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" with much enjoyment, it was with
great anticipation I started on the Starship Titanic. Douglas Adams asked his friend Terry
Jones to write this book because he didn't have the time himself, and it's quite interesting
to see how Terry Jones follows in the "writing steps" of Douglas Adams. With a past from
Monthy Python he should have all the qualification to get it right, and I must say he has
done a very good job. This is the story of the Starship Titanic, a new starship that has
been built on the planet Blerontin, a starship that is supposed to be the the greatest that
the universe has ever seen. Well, it should have been, but somehow corners has been cut and
the starship isn't quite as complete as it should have been when it's ready for launch.
Well, this is just the beginning, anf of course, people on earth is suddenly involved and
every possible impossibility that is possible also happens, of course. So, if you enjoyed
the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy this is a definitive winner.
