User Review  - DinadansFriend - LibraryThing

Gentle fun with the author of "Hitch Hiker's Guide". This is more cerebral stuff, and calming, rather than frantic pace of the earlier cycle. Think of your furniture: it may explain the universe in a more useful way! Read it twice. Read full review

User Review  - themulhern - LibraryThing

Typical Douglas Adams, and quite enjoyable if you like that kind of thing. Makes academia seem a lot more pleasant than it really is. The Electric Monk is an obvious, but solid hit, at religious belief. Read full review
