The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide, #1) - Douglas Adams Let's start off by saying that I don't care if it will allow me to understand any language, I'm not putting a fish in my ear, no way no how. But this book was.... interesting, I'm not sure how else to describe it. You start out with a guy trying to prevent his house being torn down and then his "friend" comes takes him to a bar and telling him the world is going to end. It just gets weirder from there, from mice ruling the world to weird, funny punch lines. In all honestly I'm not sure what to think about it, but I found it funny and entertaining.
