I see you read the Hebrew version, as this is not a direct translation from the English title.
No matter, the English is better. It doesn't miss references like the dark, long teatime of the soul.
But what is the meaning of 42? If we don't know the meaning of 42 the answer is meaningless
If I remember correctly, according to the book, the corresponding question to the answer of 42 is "How many roads must a man walk down?" LOL
i have a list of about 50 things related to the number 42. the most interesting to me is that it is the angle at which light enters raindrops in order to make rainbows. hey! this is my 42nd day on duolingo!
