The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

‘On prehistoric Earth he had lived in a cave, not a nice cave, a lousy cave, but... there was no but. It had been a totally lousy cave and he had hated it. But he had lived in it for five years which made it home of some kind, and a person likes to keep track of homes. Arthur Dent was such a person and so he went to Exeter to buy a computer.’


The thirty-fifth anniversary omnibus edition of 'the greatest sci-fi novel of all time.' First a legendary radio series, then a bestselling book, and most recently a blockbuster movie, the immensely successful Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy needs no introduction. Reissued in time for the first novel's thirty-fifth anniversary, this hardback omnibus edition include all five parts of the trilogy, incorporating for the first time, Mostly Harmless, along with a guide to the guide and essential notes on how to leave the planet, and a range of exclusive extra material. This single hardcover edition is indispensable for any would-be galactic traveller and for old and new fans of Douglas Adams, Doctor Who and bestselling science fiction books.


For quite a few years now, I have been putting this book on hold due to its size, volume and not having enough spare time, but I am so glad that I put everything on hold in my life to experience the story of Arthur Dent and his great adventures (even if they were unwanted and unplanned).  Even the introductions at the beginning of the book were really interesting. So I would recommend giving them a read as well.


Not much to say really, or shall I say that there is too much to say expect:




It was a hilarious read. Every page had some sort of funny moment which had me giggling away and it normally takes quite a lot to make me laugh especially through the pages of a book.


The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is definitely one of these novels that you HAVE to read before you die. So do everyone out there... You need to read this book!
