|Summary, etc.:||In this sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, Arthur Dent has finally made it home to Earth, only to discover that it is about to be blown up ... again. What could a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese have to do with all of this?|

Remember the first Star Trek movie, and how it took about half its running time reintroducing the beloved regulars of the TV series, until you were ready to scream, Get on with it? The first 50 pages of this revival of the late Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series furnish much the same heartwarming, patience-straining experience. Hapless Arthur Dent; his Betegeusean buddy Ford Prefect; two-headed galactic president Zaphod Beeblebrox; the only other survivor of the destruction of Earth, Trillian (née Tricia McMillan); her and Arthur's daughter, Random; and even the galactic demolitionist Vogons all seem to emerge from behind heavy red-velvet curtains to ladle out more of his, her, or their shtick. Thereafter, joined by their hitherto lesser colleague Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged, stepping into a leading role, and leprechaunish planet-developer Hillman Hunter, each does more of it, and more of it, and more. Plot? The Vogons, realizing they'd destroyed only one among the infinite possible Earths, are now finishing the job. They succeed, but Hillman has induced some 200 wealthy humans to settle on a kind of retirement-community planetoid, to which Arthur, Trillian, and Random have all escaped, too. And so the Vogons . . . Nearly every line of the book is funny. Unfortunately, none is funnier than any of the others. Primarily for hardened H2G2 fans. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
