just finished reading Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency #1 literally minutes ago and enjoyed both the story and artwork very much. No, it is not exactly written as i would have expected Douglas Adams to have crafted the verbiage and lovingly accentuated the placement of diphthongs by sprinkling them precisely in an adroit manner as to not draw overt attention to themselves and distracting from the ongoing narrative. however, the timing and the subtle humor is present and it would be difficult to remain an absolute purist in rejecting the story outright simply because it is not a word for word translation of his previous works…DGHDA#1 was inspired by the works of a brilliant writer whose creativity and humor leaked into a lot of malleable synapse at a very early age so it’s influence has already shaped countless other works of fiction without being direct copies of the original work (which would be cheating)
