Publisher's Summary

It's not just a trilogy any more. In the fifth book of this popular series, Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, and immediately all hell breaks loose. In short, it's up to him to save the world from total multi-dimensional obliteration, the Guide from a hostile alien takeover, and the daughter he never knew he had from herself. A tall order, to say the least. And one he's really not up to, thank you very much.
Don't miss the first parts of the series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

The end....

Great story, however, was a little disappointed in the way it ended. so I guess I'm going on to the next book, AND ANOTHER THING.

Love Hitchiking

Hitchhiker is just plain fun. I loved the series when i was young. I read it in college, and again in Med school, and again when i started reading for pleasure again, and now I am going to listen to them all.
I cannot wait. I just wish Douglas was alive for more, but I am about to read Coffer's installment (or try) for a 6th book in the series.

a real cliffhanger

I loved everything about this book except the ending. Adams wanted to but did not write the next book.. it is called And Another Thing, written by someone else. Hopefully it will clear up the mess!

Martin does a great job reading these books. He does a good job with all the characters.

Feels incomplete.

Normally all the books are great. This one felt like there were so many things left unfinished, and a very important character just gets forgotten about. It's his last book before he died so I'm not going to falt the author for it. Maybe the editors fault or it was just incomplete. The book does bring a new important character into the mix and also sets it up well for the last book. Though the last book is written by another author, it's done very well. Don't just end the story on the not this book leaves or the book before this one leaves. It's worth following through till the end.

Unthinkable crazy stories that I enjoyed very much

I did enjoy all the book. I still can't believe that it was written in the 80s.

An amazing end to a series

When I first read this book I didn’t really set in that this is the end to a wonderful series. It seemed that it would go on forever but this book finally brought closer to an already fantastically written series.

Not really, not... It's...

This book really surprised me, after reading the previous four. It's very dark, disjointed and confused (or at least, confusing). A hard 180 from the last book.
