Douglas Adams vorbeste despre cartea sa, Last Chance To See


Douglas Adams. Daca nu ati auzit de el, cautati, de urgenta, cartile sale. (Serios, merita)

Last chance to see este singura carte pe care a scris-o in stil jurnalistic, realist. Restul cartilor sale fac parte din genul "SF comedic", acesta fiind si motivul pentru care are enorm de multi fani pe toata planeta.

Adams s-a numarat printre acele persoane deconvertite in urma intalnirii cu Richard Dawkins si indragostite de biologie, iar cartea aceasta este despre cateva calatorii menite sa documenteze niste specii pe cale de disparitie (in anii 1980), printre care o specie de lemur, dragonul de Komodo, rinocerul alb si niste pasari din Noua Zeelanda.

Nu stiu daca veti mai auzi o poveste mai frumoasa si amuzanta despre animale si evolutie...



(acestea sunt doar fragmente din carte)

Douglas Adams a murit in 11 mai 2001, de infarct, in perioada filmarilor pentru filmul de lung-mentraj realizat dupa romanul sau: "The Hitchhicker's Guide To The Galaxy", un film care a fost terminat "fortat", dar tot a iesit ok.


Daca fac aici un mic elogiu, hai sa las si niste citate:


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly
what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and
inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

-- Douglas Adams, "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe"





He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.





Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
