a blase book in which Dirk Gently is involved with ancient Norse Gods, a contract for a god’s soul and some random woman, all mishmashed together in a nonsensical format that hardly anybody could enjoy.

What a waste of time. From barely there plots all mishmashed together nonsensically, to a ending so rushed I had to check out another copy to make sure I hadn’t gotten a bad copy, nothing about this book was enjoyable. Sure, there were some one liners, but a couple of one liners do not make an enjoyable novel.

in the same universe as the Hitchhiker books and very similar in type of humor. The main character knows Dirk Gently and this story is about them as they prevent a multi-billion year old alien ghost from changing the past and wiping out humans. Nothing spectacular, but a fun read.

The same exact type of humor found in the Hitchhikers’ books. So I liked this. Your mileage might vary though, depending on your frame of mind. I recommend either being stupid tired or almost drunk to truly appreciate the comedy contained in this novel.
