One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the Galaxy is a very strange and startling place.

"By turns authoritative as the narrator, bemused as Arthur Dent, deadpan as Ford Prefect and manic as Zaphod Beeblebrox, he [Stephen Fry] makes an altogether appropriate reader . . . The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" (The Times)

"My Best Book Ever"
I have read the book in hardback and paperback, listened to the radio show, seen a film and will see the play. The variation in them all adds to my enjoyment as they are all different.
Marvin, he was unique first real anti hero I had come across.
The whale and the Petunias
Don't try to understand it - yet.
"It's the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy"
I can not give it a higher review but I wish I could. The only possible problem with it is that it is TOO good.
A completely and utterly ruinously stupendous book, audio gold from Stephen Fry! I really did love the fantastic story! Amazing!
Well read by Mr Fry.
It has Zaphod. Towels, Poetry , and the book.
"Very funny and intriguing story"
even though I watched the movie, I found the story a lot better and funnier quite honestly. worth the purchase!
"Brilliant book, beautifully narrated!"
Don't panic! Just grab your towel and be prepared to listen to this repeatedly! Is today Thursday? Could never get the hang of Thursdays or reviews.
"about time I caught up with this one!"
I love Stephen Fry as narrator, the story still holds up. Loved it and looking forward to book 2
"Very English, very improbable"
Steven fry does a great enactment of this fantastic story. Douglas Adams wrote a very creative and innovative universe. I wish I could be Arthur Dent.
"Very funny and absolutely brilliant"
Brilliant Space Nonsense
Arthur Dent - The pure sarcasm the character shows and pessimistic attitude portrayed is incredibly funny
The life of the whale upon the discovery of Magrathea
Very funny book with a good performance from Stephen Fry
"Good but a little confusing... "
