Publisher's Summary

Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability, and desperately in search of a place to eat.

Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself.

Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker's Guide deleted the term "Future Perfect" from its pages, since it was discovered not to be!

Listen to the rest of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy."

What the Critics Say

"What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams' sardonically silly eyes." (Detroit Free Press)

    "Great commute companion "

    Countless times this book made me chuckle while in my commute. The jokes are funny and the reader makes an effort to make every character's voice unique. I highly recommend this book

    "2nd Half of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

    Where The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book ended in a 'to be continued' fashion, this second book in the series wrapped things up nicely. Additional books could be considered sequels, but this should really be considered the necessary second half of the original story: meat and potatoes to round out the first book's salad and dessert. It helps to take a some time and chew more during the main course.

    "amazing book for a road trip!!"

    Had this book to entertain me for a 6 hour road trip. It's a rare case where the sequel is better than the original!!

    "Very good"

    Hearing the first book recorded by a different voice destroys the first impression. However, after some minutes, Martin Freeman has convinced me to enjoy his reading pretty well. The story is brilliant anyway.

    "Excellent"

    The story is amazing, the performance is good, the only problem is the voice Freeman gave Zaphod. Why didn't anyone stop him? Very distracting.
