So i started reading the book, or rather the 6th parts of the book. At the beginning, the author explains that there is no coherence between the radio program, the book (even the different parts in the book are not coherent, apparently), and the movie.

Is the movie any good ?

MICE ! MICE ?

...and "thanks for the fish".

Never got through all of the books. I got bored and tried to restart several times. I’ve heard great things about Hitchhiker’s but it’s not for me

I tried to take on 'War and Peace' once but by the 10th Russian name with 30 letters I gave up.

I can't imagine any movie or television series doing justice to the imagery created in one's mind.

This is why the book version of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" is a THOUSAND times better than the awful movie.

Yep, some books are almost impossible to translate to film well, and these are two good examples.
