Title: The Deeper Meaning of Liff
Author: Douglas Adams and John Lloyd
Page Count/Review Word Count: 146
This book is basically a fictional dictionary in which Adams and Lloyd take place names and use them to create fictional definitions. For example, Tampa is defined as the sound of a rubber eraser coming to rest after dropping off a desk in a very quiet room.
It was kind of hard work to read it because it is essentially just a non-fiction reference book and so as such, it’s not super fun to read it from cover to cover. I think it would be better suited as a bathroom book that you dip in and out of when you’re on the toilet. But for what it was, it was all right – no more, no less.
