I’ve been pretty late to ‘nerd culture’. I watched Star Wars late, and I’ve never played Dungeons & Dragons or Magic. Never read Lord of the Rings, or much high fantasy for that matter.
So I read Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy at the ripe old age of 32. Sure, this is a book that’s best read at half that age, but that doesn’t mean you should skip it. It’s delightful. Clever, funny, and just fun. It was a much-needed break from my pretty dry and arduous reading preferences.
