I got the Scold's Bridle novel by Minette Walters yesterday, and started reading it last night, I was surprised to find this in its preface -

'Forty-two!' yelled Loonquawl. 'Is that all you've got to show for seven and a half million years' work?'
'I checked it very thoroughly,' said the computer, 'and that quite definitely is the answer. I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you've never really known what the question is...Once you know what the question is, you'll know what the answer means.'
