by Douglas Adams

Open iTunes to Buy


Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor. Together this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker's Guide ("A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.") and a galaxy full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod's girlfriend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; and Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years. Where are these pens? Why are we born? Why do we die? Why do we spend so much time in between wearing digital watches? For all the answers stick your thumb to the stars. And don't forget to bring a towel!

The whole series is FANTASTIC!!!

so long, and: thanks for all the fish. :D

i haven't read this all the way through yet, but I LOVED the movie, even though it was a bit corny. The full musical dolphin sequence was squirt-milk-out-your-nose-while-laughing-so-hard-you're-out-of-breath funny, along with Marvin, the most adorable genius robot you've ever seen. Adams is a genius of literature, no matter who narratates his work. Definately worth the money. beats the hell out of Twilight. sorry, but I had to say it. a lot cheaper, too. (*begins to sheild myself from the murderous mob of edward fans*) RULE #1: ALWAYS CARRY YOUR TOWEL. >:3

Best book ever

What is better than best? Well, probably this book. The most unique literature I've read in many years. I still keep re-reading it and enjoy the may Douglas Adams describes things.

A must read for everyone, but if you don't like the first three pages - don't waste your time. It was not written for you, sorry!
