The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Google eBook)
At last in paperback in one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams’s beloved Hitchiker series.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Facing annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.
Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky– so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription conspires to thrust him back to reality. So to speak.
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?
From the Trade Paperback edition.

I didn't know anything about Douglas Adams until a few years back when they released the HGG movie. After I had seen it a few times I needed more. Imagine my surprise when I found 5 books! I've read the collection 2 times now and It truely is AWESOME! Coming from someone who often finds himself in 3 books at once and not able to finish any of them, this book/books though kept my attention. I still picture Mos Def as Ford Prefect when i'm reading it lol But that doesn't take away from the way Douglas Adams paints a picture. I find myself feeling Like Arthur Dent when i'm reading this book with eyes wide a jaw slacked because I can even imagine how you start to think of some these things! If you haven't read it, give it a shot! Just enough science and comedy to keep you glued!
Great book and an all time favorite.
