Disclaimer: The following review may contain some spoilers revolving around the plot and background. The review is simply my own opinion, you may disagree.
This year, I will be reviewing books based around their genres. This month’s genre is Science Fiction.
In these reviews I will rate the books on a starring system.
5/5 Bookmarks: This book will land in my all-time favorite book list and you should stop what you are doing and read it, no matter what.
4/5 Bookmarks: You should try to read it at some point in your free time.
3/5 Bookmarks: If you are bored or going on a long trip, it might be fun to read.
2/5 Bookmarks: I would not really bother unless you enjoy the author.
1/5 Bookmarks: The book would make a better coaster for your Coke than a book.
0/5 Bookmarks: Congrats! You now have kindling! (just kidding, please do not burn books; just do not waste your money or your time with this one)!
This month I read Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. Why the full series? Simply because I couldn’t put it down. This is a fantastical series that follows just a regular, British man named Arthur Dent and his adventures through the universe after the end of the world. Why was the Earth destroyed? Why, to make an interstate galactic highway. This leads to him hitchhiking his way across the universe with his alien best friend Ford Prefect. Ford is a researcher for the revised edition of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, who, for the last fifteen years on earth, has been posing as an out-of-work actor. Along the way they meet many other wacky characters. This is genuinely one of the funniest and most absurd book series I have ever read. A warning to readers: it does make you think a little and uses some large vocabulary. I enjoyed this series immensely because it made me laugh, but it also made me think. If you’re a nerd looking for a good laugh, this is the book for you: rated 🔖 🔖 🔖 🔖 .
The entire Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams is available in the McNicholas High School library. Do you have a book that you would like me to review? Please suggest it in the comments or send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re interested in reading and discussing books with your peers and librarians you should join the book club! They have snacks, books, and opinions! The read for this month is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. The next meeting is September 28.
Next month’s genre: Horror!
