Book Review – Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency book coverDirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency solves the whole crime and Dirk is on this case involving ghosts, time travel and a mission to save humanity. I’ve been meaning to read this book for awhile since I happen to love The Hitchhiker’s series. This novel does not disappoint. It is thoroughly science fiction comedy and a unique read. Clever, ridiculous, eccentric, in other words, deliciously Douglas Adams.

Total Reading Time: 3 hours

Review: Definitely amusing. Sedaris is an excellent wordsmith, both vivid and inventive. My favorite story was a delightfully ruthless critique of fancy food that ended with Sedaris eating a hot dog from a street vendor.
