10 out of 10

A hilarious book. The first in the increasingly inaccurately named "Hitchhiker's Trilogy." Begins with Arthur Dent's home being demolished to make room for a bypass. Soon afterward, his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, takes Arthur off Earth just before the planet is demolished to make room for a hyperspace bypass. This is the tale of their bizarre trip through the universe, with other characters such as Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed hippie ex President of the Galaxy, Marvin, a paranoid and chronically depressed robot ("I have this horrible pain in all the diodes down my left side"), and others. Includes the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe And Everything, which is "Forty-two". The reason this makes no sense is probably because no one knows what the question is.
