Life, the Universe and Everything
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads--so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the white killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.
They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler, who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vicepresident of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-head honcho of the Universe; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox.
How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert "universal" Armageddon and save life as we know it--and don't know it!
"ADAMS IS ONE OF THOSE RARE TREASURES: an author who, one senses, has as much fun writing as one has reading."

Brilliant, as usual. The book had me laughing out loud as I followed the (mis)-adventures of Arthur Dent and his crew. The usual, Catch-22-style writing fascinates me every time. Read full review

I think this may be my favorite book yet of the series. I read the prologue of the next, and that might turn out to be it. However, this is the first one that has nothing to do with the movies or the BBC show. Two more books left in the series, and I'm enjoying them all so far. Read full review
