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.

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.

what a great ending!

I'm always pleased with the books in the series. Although it's coming to an end I feel that they wrapped it up at nicely.

Great till the last line

Amazing, great story, a bit chaotic nothing out of the ordinary for this story line, gets me everytime, and the voice fits perfect and takes you to the places being described.

mostly disappointed in this book

I loved the other books in this series, bit this one isn't good at all. I should have stopped with the second to last book.
