In honor of Douglas Adam’s 61st birthday, he receives the highest of honors; the Google Doodle.GoogleDoodlehitchhikersThe best thing about this doodle is the interactive copy of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) that features all sorts of Douglas Adam’s references, like the babel fish and 42.

All main GeekyLibrary Crew members have read at the very least the original Hitchhiker’s Guide the Galaxy, although the zany and irreverent humor appeals to some of us more than others.  Our numbers guy, Jason, prefers science fiction plots to have some semblance of order and presented an unusual opinion of the book in his review.

As for me, I loved the book but never finished the 5-book trilogy. Perhaps the fate of the friendship-seeking whale was too much for me.

If you are a geek, it is highly suggested that you read this book just to maintain some geek cred and to know  why you should always bring a towel. Stay improbable!
