Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and he's drawn into a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction.

I get that the dramatised version is shorter than the unabridged. But it's a shame because Douglas Adams is a genius! I absolutely love Dirk Gently. Season 1 is on Netflix too ;)

The compelling, inspiring (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life.

So I went to high school with Trevor and I was able to intimately relate to half of the book all the way down to the pirating empire. Trevor tells the story in such an amazing way. The accents he uses brings out his sheer talent. There's humour where you least expect it. And although he's not religious he tells a deeply emotional story of the power of prayer. His mother is an amazing woman. Thanks for sharing your story Trevor.
