Review of 'The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul'

The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams

Dirk Gently is back. This time he is challenged to figure out what an unusual suicide (!) and unexplained spontaneous fireball that appears at check-in in Heathrow airport. He is up to the task and in the process wages war with his house-cleaner over a fridge unopened since the Jurassic and learns a lot about Nordic gods – First hand. Terrifically chaotic and hilariously funny Adams once again delivers. Ok, a bit of a classic now, but certainly deserves a read. This is the fifth time I have read the book and will read again as there are always things new to discover and enjoy. Now, will it ever get a radio series?
