Description

Part three of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy of five. Featuring additional material from the Adams archives, and an introduction from Simon Brett, producer of the original radio broadcast.

One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius

Dazzlingly inventive

Fizzing with ideas . . . Brilliant

I haven’t known many geniuses in my life. Some brilliantly smart people, but only a tiny handful would I class as geniuses. I would class Douglas, because he saw things differently, and he was capable of communicating the way he saw things, and once he explained things the way he saw them, it was almost impossible to see them the way you used to see them

It changed my whole life. It's literally out of this world

Really entertaining and fun

Hitchhiker’s is packed with that unique energy, all barmy and bristling and bold. This book can be witty, iconoclastic, godless, savage, sweet, surreal, but above all, it dares to be silly. Fiercely, beautifully silly

He had almost a Wodehousian style and some of his phrases and jokes entered our language. He changed the way people spoke

There has never been another writer remotely like Douglas Adams. He discovered a completely new genre – scientific wit – and having discovered it he raised it to dizzying heights

Quite good I suppose, if you like brilliantly entertaining books written with a touch of imaginative genius

Very occasionally a book comes along that changes the way you laugh and what you laugh about

One of the world’s sanest, smartest, kindest, funniest voices

Sheer delight

Magical . . . read this book

Douglas Adams created all the various and contradictory manifestations of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptations, comic book and bath towel. He lectured and broadcast around the world and was a patron of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Save the Rhino International. Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, UK and lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, London, before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where he died suddenly in 2001.

In addition to Hitchhiker, He is also the author of the Dirk Gently novels: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul and the unfinished The Salmon of Doubt.
