Douglas Adams - just the best.

Thanks to an Amazon reviewer for this:
This is the second in the series of the Hitchhiker guides written by Douglas Adams with the continued adventures of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox (including both his heads) and Trillian.

The book starts where the Hitchhiker’s Guide finishes, with Zaphod asking Arthur whether he’s hungry, suggesting they go to the restaurant at the end of the universe. Now as restaurants go, this place is a little unique as since it’s the restaurant at the end of the universe there is something that little bit unique about this place – ie. you can watch the universe being destroyed every time you visit it.

In terms of the writing style, there’s not all that much new in this book beyond the predecessor and yet it’s an entertaining read. If you’re thinking of buying this book, also check out the ultimate hitchhiker’s guide which contains all the main books from the hitchhiker series. Compared to the other books in the series, this isn’t my favourite story although it does have some great bits in it. I suppose that given the incredible originality of the first book in the series, it was something quite tough to live up to, but do read it anyway – if nothing else, to read the next in series “Life, the Universe and Everything”.

While I enjoyed this continuation of the series, I thought the first book was more witty. Still a good read.
