For some reason, my expectations regarding this book were low. Being a huge Hitch-hiker's guide fan (I recite dialogue in my sleep), I was disappointed by the Dirk Gently books, and expected Titanic to be similarly non-HitchHikers. However... I have to confess that I cheated, and rather than reading the book, had it read to me by the co-author Terry Jones, on the Simon & Schuster audio cassette. Without doubt, this is the best way to read the book. Not only does the book have a great story, with some wonderful lines, but Terry's delivery adds so much extra to the story, from his female voices (Nettie and Lucy), to the voices of the sardonic ...

Amazing!!, truely amzing, that's the best way to sum up how good I feel this book is. Well imagine the scene, I, completely bored, wondering around waterstones aimlessly when lo and behold I happen to glimpse this book. Although I have read books by Adams before and have always been a fan of Terry Jones I would never of expected this book to be so good!

The only possible thing that you could say against this book is that you won't be able to sleep until you have finished it. ... Read the complete review

The story itself was original, imaginative and funny (like most Douglas Adams creations are) but for some reason on earth he let Ex-Monty Phython star Terry Jones write it. A poor decision in my eyes. The book reads as if Terry Jones just got up one day, was a bit bored and decided to write a novel, a very short one at that. The story has no ... Read the complete review

Im a pretty big fan of terry jones writing and douglas adamsThe whole book feels like one of Douglas Adams's unfunnier asides in The Hitch-hiker's Guide(so this book is enjoyable). There are only a few actually funny moments; the rest of it can raise nothing more than a weak smile. .the plot of the story isn't so good thanks to douglas adams and remember the book is really short (too short).over al the book is still quite funny due to terry jones humor ...
