One Thursday lunchtime Earth is unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this is already more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. And the Galaxy is a very, very large and startling place indeed...
THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY became a massive cult success when it was first published and continues to sell all over the world. It introduced such memorable characters as Arthur Dent, Marvin the Paranoid Android, Zaphod Beeblebrox and, of course, the Vogons and remains one of the funniest, most irreverent and entertaining novels ever.

Sure, it's the most successful book ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor, but is it as good as everyone says? The short answer is: 'yes'. A shorter answer would be: 'ye', but that doesn't make sense. A longer answer would be: 'well, what do you mean by good? It's not good to eat, it's not good to inflate and sleep on; and who is this “everyone”? I haven't heard everyone … have you? No, how could you have. Don't be absurd...' But that would be obnoxious, pretentious and deserve a very sharp slap. - Jeremy (QBD)
