Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a book from the year you were born. I had a hard time with this category trying to look up books purely by year until I discovered the power search setting on the library’s webpage. Best thing I discovered all week. I couldn’t believe how many options there were. I finally decided to settle on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams, famed for his Hitchhiker series.

I’ve read the first Hitchhiker book by Adams and loved it. Adams himself described this book as a “thumping good detective-ghost-horror-who dunnit-time travel-romantic-musical-comedy-epic.” How can you beat that? I can’t wait to see what Dirk Gently has in store and how Adams will tackle the detective genre.

Stay tuned for the full review of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Happy reading!
