‘No, Not That One’ Score: 5/5 A book by Douglas Adams with white robots turning up at a Lords where our protagonists are watching a cricket match. The robots steal the ashes and then go on to try to destroy the galaxy. It may all sound very familiar, but it's not 'Life, The Universe, And Everything', it's this book. Bits of it really do come across as a Hitchhiker's/Who crossover. Some paragraphs are weird…

‘Quick, Trite, Occasionally Useful’ Score: 3/5 This was a 99p 'Quick Read' so it’s not the full book. It did have some good bits, some useful thoughts, but it could also be a bit tiresome, and it did have some dodgy moments. Maybe they're less dodgy in the complete edition...

There’s some discussion of how ‘smart’ will be measured here (IQ is a troubling measure) but more interesting are the questions of effectiveness and morality. Do, say, pills work? And if so, should the be available indiscriminately? Should they be banned? O…

‘What Would You Do?’ Score: 4/5 This feels like Threads, but written by H. G. Wells or John Wyndham - a journey through a very English countryside with society falling apart all around. But its really just asking the question: how far would you go to keep your family safe? I can’t fault the protagonists for their choices, but I’m not sure they’re the ones I’d have made. And some of the geography confused m…
