I saw the movie before I read the book, and I think it prepared me for Mr. Adams' writing style
I have to admit, sometimes he lost me in his narrative, but it was like listening to your crazy uncle telling a story, so I kind of enjoyed it... I stopped trying to "make sense" of it and just went along for the ride.
The ending threw me off... it just... stopped... I had to check another edition to make sure I wasn't missing pages or something, but nope, I just ended on grabbing a bite to eat, so I definitely need to read the next book, but that will be at a later time :)
