    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    Victor says: "still a winner!!!"
    "A great contrast to english class homework."
    Overall

    The late, great, Doaglas Adams has created here a wonderful farce of just about everything from conventional assumptions of Sci-fi, to alleged alien sightings, and the dysfunctional workings of modern civilization. This series is a great way to refresh your mind in between being coerced into reading the rot that english teachers celebrate as "Literature". Tolstoy, Shakespeare and Hemingway are tolerable, but the gratuitously nauseating, dismally depressing, and offensive works like "Beloved" and "Typical American", horrifyingly bland works like "The Great Gatsby", and pretty much anything written by Nathaniel Hawthorne can get to a guy after a while.
    I seen to have digressed into a rant against my curriculum, but I hope I have made it clear that this five book trilogy is just what the doctor ordered for someone who hasn't laughed enough recently.

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "Once again, Moore trolls the tabloids."
    Overall

    This book declares itself to be privy to "inside" and "hushed-up" information in much the same way that the National enquirer is privy to the testimony of some poor drunken sod wandering the streets of Detroit proclaiming to all the world that he has been sent to earth by god for the sole purpose of stirring up rebellion amongst the downtrodden dustbins that have been so cruelly oppressed by human society.
    Political satire has its place, and all points of view are fair game. But continuing and expanding malicious rumours is inexcusable even in artistic license.
