Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Box Set)
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
by Douglas Adams
I love Douglas Adams, and "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is one of my favorite books/series of all time. I'd heard a lot about Dirk Gently over the years, but wasn't really sure what to expect. A few weeks ago, I saw that the box set was on sale on Amazon, so I picked it up for my Kindle for about 99 cents.
Dirk Gently is a detective in that he investigates things, but not in the way, say, Luther or Sherlock Holmes does. Instead, he more or less stumbles into ridiculous circumstances and draws conclusions about what's happening. His level of experience with absurd situations gives him a lot of insight into what's actually happening... In short, it's more of a comedy series than a detective series. If you enjoyed Hitchhiker's Guide, you'll enjoy this.
