Publisher Description

This beautifully illustrated edition of the New York Times bestselling classic celebrates the 42nd anniversary of the original publication—with all-new art by award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.
 
SOON TO BE A HULU SERIES • “An astonishing comic writer.”—Neil Gaiman

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read


It’s an ordinary Thursday morning for Arthur Dent . . . until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly after to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and Arthur’s best friend has just announced that he’s an alien.

After that, things get much, much worse.

With just a towel, a small yellow fish, and a book, Arthur has to navigate through a very hostile universe in the company of a gang of unreliable aliens. Luckily the fish is quite good at languages. And the book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy . . . which helpfully has the words DON’T PANIC inscribed in large, friendly letters on its cover.

Douglas Adams’s mega-selling pop-culture classic sends logic into orbit, plays havoc with both time and physics, offers up pithy commentary on such things as ballpoint pens, potted plants, and digital watches . . . and, most important, reveals the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Now, if you could only figure out the question. . . .

I usually don’t read fiction

This is the first fiction book I’ve read in years, it is a classic and as I read I realized how important it is to challenge my brain with pure creativity which this book did.

Amazing

I thought that it was funny, interesting and descriptive

Critique, not of the book, but of the electronic version.

I rember reading this many years ago in hardcopy and greatly enjoying it, so I wish to emphasize the book itself, IMO, is 4 stars out of 5.

I would have thought that by now an e-version would have had all the kinks and bugs worked out. But I'm only a few chapters in, and already I've encountered a couple of superscript footnote numbers, but the footnotes themselves are nowhere to be found. So already I'm dissatisfied - 2 stars out of 5 for the e-book. Wish there was a way to direct such complaints to those who could take corrective action, instead of putting them here in the review.
