4/5 -- Mine solely on what I found funny in the book.

       I enjoyed the book especially Arthur's bits where he mostly just says "What?" because things going on around him. I think it fit perfectly the amount of "what?"s he did because ...in all reality, I think that's where I would be going with my sentences if I just found out one of my friends was an alien from a planet in around Betelgeuse. Well, on top of that the fact your house is about to be demolished, then you find out your entire planet is about to be demolished. During these life experiences one really can't see no reason why he says it so much going through the book.
Ford gave up, it wasn't worth bothering at the moment, what with the world about to end. He just said "drink up"

He added, perfectly factually, "the world's about to end"

Arthur gave the rest of the pub another wan smile. The rest of the pub frowned at him. A man waved him to stop smiling at them and to mind his own business.

"This must be Thursday", Arthur said to himself, sinking low over his beer. "I never could get the hang of Thursdays."

Pg. 20

And, Marvin the depressed robot is amazingly hilarious. Because you know them depressed folks are a hoot! Anyway, no really his bits are awesome.

I do not have much to criticize mainly because I read it for laughs and that's what it gave me. It's a bit "random" but not so much that you will look around and ask everyone in the room, "Wtf?". Its the good and organized-like type of random that goes with the story but really wasn't that necessary ..but necessary for this book. If that makes any sense at all.

Right now I am reading...

Well of Darkness by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
Arrows of the Queen by Mercedes Lackey.

Both are fantasy novels I checked out at the library. I am so far enjoying Arrows of the Queen better because the pace is a bit quicker than the start of the Well of Darkness. But sometimes slow turns into a faster ending or a well-paced book that it's just enjoyable even if it's kind of slow. If that makes any sense. I only had four hours of sleep last night so I am a bit sleepy-time minded.

If you haven't read Mercedes Lackey or Margaret Weis/Tracy Hickman , I say go for it. They are kind of hard to get into usually at the beginning of the books. For me they are because they describe in great detail things that are in their world. Which is nice because it isn't like ours so you want to know what it looks like and what is going on but sometimes...the descriptive is a bit slow, but once you get passed all that it's usually a really good or decent book.

And, I am seven books behind my reading 50 books in a year. Which isn't horrible.

How are you and I hope this Thursday goes well for you. I am going to do some homework and then go back to bed.
