The Resurrectionist is a whirlwind blend of exciting quest and unpredictable humour. Adams folds obvious comedy into this novel and yet manages to transform winnebagos converted into spaceships, a colony of Elvis impersonators, and a monster rabbit into earnest, even logical story elements. This makes the anecdotal humour of accidental rips in the multiverse and drug hangovers that much more satisfying. The rabbit, nicknamed Dave, has a sense of Frankenstein’s monster about him with Hollister as the obsessive doctor, introducing a surprising note of empathy to The Resurrectionist. A bounty of humour, a fast-paced story with unpredictable twists, and the precision with which Adams lays bare human nature comes together to create a story that’s satisfyingly complex while also ridiculously entertaining.
