The Hitchikes Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams


Its only a book review

I read this book many years ago and now I am reading it to my daugther. One of my favorites yet again, Sometimes I think I should stop reading to her and get her to read it herself but she enjoys being read to to much. I guess I can be thankful she wants to here story’s that I have come to love at all.

Arthur Dent wakes up one mornning only to find that his house is being demoslished to make way for a bypass. His friend Ford prefect comes along and convinces him to go for a drink and then proceeds to tell him that the world is about to end in aproximatley 12 minutes.

The Vogons show up and destroy earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass and next thing Arthur knows he is on a alien ship with his friend ford as a sto away. The Vogons soon learn of there presence and throw them out an airlock but not before they have some vogun poety read to them. The worst poerty in the entire universe. So bad in fact being thrown out of an airlock first would of been preferable.

Holding there breath in the depths of space the impossible happens. They are picked up by the heart of gold space ship recentley stolen by galactic president Zaphod Beeblebrox. Arthur, Ford, Zaphod, Trillion and the depressed android Marvin embark on a series of improbable adventures with hilarious results.

I LOVE this book. I could not stop lauphing at almost every chapter. From the depressed android to the babblefish and all kinds of impossible events this book is a non stop comic festival. The Hitchikers guide is a must read for anyone wether a science fiction fan or not. Every chapter has some kind of hilarious comical event happening. The descriptions of events from the “sighing” doors “brain the size of a unverse” android just keep you reading and lauphing.

And of course the towel is a must have for this book as your lickely to pee your pants lauphing, after all “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.” And don’t forget

“”Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.” (Sass: know, be aware of, meet, have sex with; hoopy: really together guy; frood: really amazingly together guy.)”

This is a must read you will not regret it. Loved every moment of it and I would  give this book a 10/10 book worms because of the awsome stupid hilarity of it all.

    Awesome book. I want to do a re-read soon, but this time I’ll be continuing on through the five-book “trilogy”, according to Douglas Adams, lol.
