The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (Douglas Adams) is a page turning tale of Arthur Dent as he faces a series of catastrophes on his journey through the galaxy; encountering profound creatures that derive from extravagant alien planets like Betelegeuse or Magrathea. All alongside classic characters that you will learn to love, from a depressed robot, to an irresponsible two-faced (he has two heads!) president.
This is a funny, good read for ages 11 and above, written with extraordinary detail, and humour that has been making people laugh for 40 years, and more to come. A book literally out of this world.
'One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius' - David Walliams An international phenomenon and pop-culture classic, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been a radio show, TV series, novel, stage play, comic book and film. Following the galactic (mis)adventures of Arthur Dent, Hitchhiker’s in its various incarnations has captured the imaginations of curious minds around the world.
It's an ordinary Thursday lunchtime for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and his best friend has just announced that he's an alien. At this moment, they're hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed, in large friendly letters, with the words: DON'T PANIC. The weekend has only just begun.
With exclusive bonus material from the Douglas Adams archives, and an introduction by former Doctor Who show-runner, Russell T Davies. Continue Arthur Dent's intergalactic adventures in the rest of the trilogy with five parts: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, and Mostly Harmless.
