Descrição

For such a large topic in so few pages it is well-written and entertaining. It poses many of the questions regarding this topic very well and gives some good insights into the various problems posed by the seemingly simple quesion, 'What is the meaning of Life?' He even quotes Douglas Adams answer of 42 and goes into why it is funny although I think most of us worked that one out ourselves. What let's the book down is that although the author is well-read (he should be as he's a professor of English) he is only well-read within European culture which makes the whole work Euro-centric leaving out all the major contributions avilable from other great cultures around the world. Add in the fact that there is a general if not overt biase towards Marxist politics and this does leave the book well short of where it could otherwise have gone. The author is also clearly not content with a review of the various possibilities and does treat us to his own 'theory' at the end of the book. It isn't an unintelligent approach nor is it completely out of the question as a reasonable response. However, it has no more to credit it than any of the other ideas here, or those left out of the book completely, yet it is given as if it were some kind of summation of those ideas. All in all, if you want a pocket book to read while travelling (that's how I read it) then it is small and a good read but certainly neither comprehensive in its scope nor unbiased in its presentation.
