This book is literally fantastic. I have read it several times, and I will read it again. It is one of the few science fictions books I like. No wonder C. S. Lewis liked it so much. He was a good enough writer to appreciate the art in such a book that is overlooked by people that only like an easy style. Here something so important is being said that the artist doesn't stop to polish the details — like Michangelo's "Men Tearing Themselves out of Rocks" — the roughness of the texture adds to the final quality of the reality presented.

Absolutely superb.

Briljant!
I've read this book twice about 35 years ago, and liked it a lot..
Then I managed to forget both writer and title, but last year I've looked for it quite a few times, it was like looking for a needle...yet here it is, on my own trusted MR.
Thanks!

I didn't enjoy this book. First off: it's fantasy, not scifi. The same problem with Hitchhiker: if the setting is space, it's scifi. Wrong.

What really annoyed me most is that it builds such momentum for the most part of the first chapter and then completely abandons all of it in favor of two non-sense characters came out of nowhere. Then, they just go on stumbling on surreal situations and that's about it. In this way, it sounds just like HHGT, except not funny at all.
