Long Dark Teatime of the Soul

Long Dark Teatime of the Soul is the second of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently books, the first of which I reread about a month ago. Like the first, this is the story of an average person (in this case, a woman) to whom extraordinary things start happening. This time, it is the gods (Norse gods, for some reason) who are acting up - but fortunately, Dirk Gently is there to unravel the events in his own way. Much hilarity ensues. Although this is maybe not quite as strong a book as DG's Holistic Detective Agency, it's still got loads of Douglas Adam's own humor, and is worth a read just for that.

Book 41
