My Kindle tells me I'm 6% into the first (of five?) Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book. At best, I've been mildly amused so far, but now I've reached Chapter 4 and it's losing me. There's too much mention of goofy names of other solar systems/planets/whatnot, and it's reading like something an eighth grader would hand in for an assignment where he wants to come off as clever and kooky. I'll give it to 15% to recapture my interest, and if it fails by then, I'll abandon ship. I hate feeling like I'm "supposed" to like something but just don't.
