Yeah, like I said, I never read any Colfer, and I'm sure he can think of some decent jokes for the book, but that's not really what the problem is here. It's the fact that the series will be 'completed' by someone else, while it's such a personal series that could never have been written by anyone else in the first place. We'll see. I'm not sure yet, but I guess curiosity will get the better of me and I will check it out.
Maybe all this renewed interest in Douglas Adams will make Dirk Maggs come to his senses and finish what he started. That would be nice.
