Book Description:

Join Douglas Adams's hapless hero Arthur Dent as he travels the galaxy with his intrepid pal Ford Prefect, getting into horrible messes and generally wreaking hilarious havoc. Dent is grabbed from Earth moments before a cosmic construction team obliterates the planet to build a freeway. You'll never read funnier science fiction; Adams is a master of intelligent satire, barbed wit, and comedic dialogue. The Hitchhiker's Guide is rich in comedic detail and thought-provoking situations and stands up to multiple reads. Required reading for science fiction fans, this book (and its follow-ups) is also sure to please fans of Monty Python, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and British sitcoms.

My Review:

I thought this was quite an interesting book! A lot of science fiction and humor. I have always wanted to read it because it has such a different title!

So glad I finally got a chance to read this book. I saw the film adaptation a few years ago, but recall almost nothing of it... which is probably for the best.

The book is full of Monty Python-esque humour, which I love. I just wish it was a bit longer, since Trillian still feels like a bit of a mystery to me.

Looking forward to the rest of the series!

As with previous readers of this particular copy of this book, my first exposure to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was the movie released in 2005. I don't remember much about the movie outside of a brief scene or two, but I believe the book will leave a longer lasting impression on me.

Definitely recommended to fans of Sci-Fi and (or) British comedy. The author has a witty sense of humor and explores interesting concepts. It's not very long, and it kept me wanting to read more. My only complaint is that some of the author's jokes and exposition went over my head, either because what he was describing made little sense without further context, or because I'm ill-informed of the subject matter. Either way, it's clear the author was much more well-versed in science and mathematics than I'll ever be. Regardless, I'm looking forward to continuing the series.
