These three books are an amazing part of Douglas's trilogy. This humorus adventure of Arthur Dent is amazingly complexe and funny, as you sometimes have to trace back to the begining of the books to understand what the author is saying. One of my favorite parts of these books is when
Arthur learns to fly. Since the only way to fly is to miss the gground completly, and the only way to do that is to get distracted before you hit it, I was not supprised that he was able to pick it up so well, as he has been through a lot and doesnt' seem to focus on things very well. ( )

Another book that I picked up way after everyone else had read it. Wonderfull series. But once again...HATED THE MOVIE. Too rushed, too choppy. If you didn't read the books, you wouldn't know what was going on. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0671477099, Paperback)

Join Douglas Adams's hapless hero Arthur Dent as he travels the galaxy with his intrepid pal Ford Prefect, getting into horrible messes and generally wreaking hilarious havoc. Dent is grabbed from Earth moments before a cosmic construction team obliterates the planet to build a freeway. You'll never read funnier science fiction; Adams is a master of intelligent satire, barbed wit, and comedic dialogue. The Hitchhiker's Guide is rich in comedic detail and thought-provoking situations and stands up to multiple reads. Required reading for science fiction fans, this book (and its follow-ups) is also sure to please fans of Monty Python, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and British sitcoms.
