This is a sad story.
I watched the new Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trailer last week (numerous times at quicktime.com) and got all excited about seeing this movie. SO excited, in fact, that I sat down and read the first book again.
It bored me.
I’ve read this book NUMEROUS times in the 80’s and early 90’s. I don’t think it bored me because it’s boring or dull or dated. I just think I scrubbed all the funny out of it with the repeated passage of my eyes.
Anyway, it was sad for me. The good news is that the movie should have no problem at all being more fun for me than the book now is.
