The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Douglas Adams


"IRRESISTIBLE!"
--The Boston Globe
Seconds sooner than the Earth is demolished to make manner for a galactic highway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by way of his buddy Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised version of The Hitchhiker's advisor to the Galaxy who, for the final fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.
Together this dynamic pair start a trip via house aided by means of charges from The Hitchhiker's consultant ("A towel is set the main hugely necessary factor an interstellar hitchhiker can have") and a galaxy-full of fellow tourists: Zaphod Beeblebrox--the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and absolutely out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod's female friend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur attempted to choose up at a dinner party as soon as upon a time region; Marvin, a paranoid, impressive, and chronically depressed robotic; Veet Voojagig, a former graduate scholar who's captivated with the disappearance of the entire ballpoint pens he obtained through the years.
Where are those pens? Why are we born? Why will we die? Why can we spend lots time among donning electronic watches? For all of the solutions stick your thumb to the celebrities. and do not put out of your mind to convey a towel!
"[A] WHIMSICAL ODYSSEY...Characters frolic in the course of the galaxy with infectious joy."
