Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So, shortly after Dirk Gently's second novel, Douglas Adams takes off across the world with a zoologist and, together with a ton of misadventures and great photographs, they meet dragons, tough-skinned 17-month gestating aliens, birds that have forgotten how to forget how to hit the ground, and we learn that DNA has a major *issue* with aftershave.
Multiple aftershaves. *shudder*
Back in the day, I saw this book in the bookstores and I said to myself... "Hey! Buddy! Where's the next fiction novel? I mean, sure, raising awareness for animals that are on the way to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe IS a good cause, but I WANT MY FICTION."
And so I took thirty years to get around to reading this.
I feel slightly bad. This is a shame-read. The book has shamed me on many levels while making me laugh.
Well! At least there's that!
