The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy's book was published 30 years ago on 12 October 1979 and its phenomenal success sent the book straight to Number One in the UK Bestseller List.

As for the content, Douglas Adams was a master at the absurd, and the characterizations of the principals are brilliant. I envy people who are reading this for the first time.
Liked the chosen book size of 8 inches x 5 inches, making it easy to pack and carry while vacationing.
