The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

5 out of 5 stars

This book is also one of my favourites.

Basically, it follows the life of one Arthur Dent after his house and then his planet are demolished and he discovers his best friend is, in fact, an alien.

This is a truly hilarious book. Adams's wit is dry and intelligent, and the characters – Arthur, Ford Prefect, Zaphod, Marvin and Trillian – are beautifully created and stay with you long after you put the book down.

If you haven't read this book yet, do so.

I can't wait for the film to come out next year!

Well, that wasn't so bad!

Actually, I lie, it was quite bad really, since our team came eighth out of nine teams… I had fun though!

The incident was quite good, not too hard. The rope throw was horrendous, I had to have four goes, and then the whistle went for time! Still, the swimming was quite good!

All in all, it was a fun evening!

Lifesaving Competition

Oh God…

Today I'm going to take part in my first Lifesaving Competition! It's so very scary, and I am not looking forward to it at all. Not even slightly, not even at all.

The competition involves a rope throw race, a swim and tow race and an incident, which means at least a hundred people in the pool and I have to save them. All on my own…

Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration. For "a hundred people", read "about 6", and for "all on my own", read "with three other, more experience people!"

It's still really scary though!

Anyway, I'm going to go get ready now!

This is my Blog. Just so you know, I'm completely technophobic, so if my entries go wrong or look odd, that's why!

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

5 out of 5 stars

These three books are my favourite books in the whole world!

They follow the progress of Lyra, a girl from another world, and her demon Pan. They explore the relationship between humans and their souls, the concept of origional sin and many idas surrounding religion, death and the afterlife. And they make a damn good story too!

I've read these books at least ten times over and I never get tired of them. Pullman writes a modern-day epic that is readable and addictive and will surely become a classic.
