Reviews - What do customers think about Faster Than Light?
Read the inspiration for this book instead Feb 3, 2004
Nearly every aspect of this book reminded me of a much better book - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and its sequels, all of which I enjoyed much more than Faster than Light. Not that this book isn't amusing and clever, but compared to Hitchhiker's, "its good parts aren't original, and its original parts aren't good." I recommend this book for SF fans who have not read Hitchhiker's, and I urge all those who read Faster than Light first to read Hitchhiker's next.
