Product Description

Review

"It's science fiction and it's extremely funny...inspired lunacy that leaves hardly a science fiction cliche alive." Washington Post "The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes, and his travels afford a wild satire of present institutions." Chicago Tribune "Very simply, the book is one of the funniest SF spoofs ever written, with hyperbolic ideas folding in on themselves." School Library Journal "A sci-fi book, packed full of adventure and humour" The Guardian

If you haven't read this you really ought to, if for no other reason than to understand the jokes that readers may causally make. If you want a good reason, the book is its own argument. Well written, irreverently funny, highly addictive.

I referenced a quote to a friend who I assumed would know what I was talking about, so after explaining HHGTG to him, I thought " hey I haven't read that for a long time" so I bought it for my iPad and enjoyed it thoroughly

The Hitchhiker's Guide is one of those books you can read over and over again and it just gets more entertaining. The kindle edition is great because I can take it anywhere and read it anytime!

English humor is really either hit or miss with me, and this was kind of a miss. Wasn't a bad read, and if you're going to get it this hardcover is the way to go, but it didn't exactly float my boat.
