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.

I just cannot believe it's over

I've binged the Hitchhiker's guide series and enjoyed every second. I feel empty now. Would definitely, without a trace of any doubt, read again

Both good stand-alone and part of the series

This time Adams focus on the concept of parallel universes. It could quickly be very strange and confusing, but he manages it in an entertaining and thought provoking way. Many funny bits. Didn't quite get the ending, but guess I'll hear it again.

Author + narrator = perfection

What can I say?
Martin Freeman is absolutely wonderful in this version of this book.
British sci-fi at its best.

Love the series!

Seeing as this was the last book in the Hitchhiker’s series written by Adams, it was no doubt complete and utter nonsense. But a good nonsense. It was a hilariously funny and witty read and I enjoyed reading through the series, wondering what sort of wild adventure I’d be thrust into as soon as I pick up the book. Reading with audio book made the experience especially wonderful. Loved every minute of it!

Love this series!

It is good to listen to the whole series of Douglas Adam's Books, they are classics. I am glad they are on audio books and as I seem to have never got the time to sit down and read them cover to cover.
