I didn't get very far into Colfer's book before putting it down. It was like the uncanny valley applied to literature: close enough to Adam's style to be weird and creepy, but not so close as to be actually funny. I don't know about satisfying, but the last Hitchiker's book definately wrapped things up in a decisive way.
But this thread gives me all the excuse I need to crack out my dog eared copies of the Dirk Gently books.
