This collection of sharp, witty, and observant books merits a space on every bookshelf. I am VERY disappointed to find that it
is out of print, as the copy I have is a beautiful black cushioned-leather covered, bible-page style with gold page edges.
Needless to say, I'm preserving it as much as I can! Douglas Adams is one of my favorite authors, with his ability to make
human existance seem so amusing, and yet so futile at the same time. He takes life, gives it a large drink, spins it around a few
times, and watches what happens. Adams is not above self-humiliation either:
"The idea for the title first cropped up when I was lying drunk in a field in Innsbruck, Austria. Well, not really drunk, just the
kind of drunk you get from having a couple of stiff Gossers after not having eaten for two days straight on account of being a
penniless hitchhiker. We are talking of a mild inability to stand up."
I THOROUGHLY recommend this book to ANYONE with a sense of humor, a mind for Sci-Fi, or an adequately functioning
brain. Actually, all carbon-based life-forms should be exposed to this book at some point or another...
Enjoy... I know I did!

For quite a few years, I've been a fan of the Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy books. After reading all the lesser quality books from the library, at an Antiquarian bookstore, I stumbled upon this book that has all of the novels into one collection. With the thickly clothed leather, and gorgeous gold lettering and page edges, this out of print Hitchhiker's Guide is a collectibe, I will treasure forever on a special place in my bookcase.

This book is in great condition, the quality of the leather and golden edges pages make this book looks awesome on your shelf, if you are a fan of the Guide and you want to show off how cool your bookshelf looks, this is a must buy book.

It's Douglas Adams. What more truly needs to be said. I love having all of it (or most of it, at any rate) all in one place. A great collection that needs to be read at least every couple of years in order to maintain a proper world view.

Im very happy I purchased this book.
Having never read the series I wasn't sure what to expect at all.
I had a hard time putting this marvelous book down!
Not only is the book itself made well, the design on the cover is wonderful.

Im glad I got introduced to Life, The Universe, and Everything.

Format: Bonded Leather
A friend in Deltona, Florida introduced me to this book in July of 1992. I was intrigued with the first page that described the three ways to get off of the planet Earth. I was amused that he would suggest calling the Vatican. Maybe they know someone that can help. I don't have the ability to express myself in the way that he did. Witty and original are only two adjectives that I can think of to describe this book, which is British sciene fiction comedy. Once I began reading I read it straight through in less than a week. I am stupified at how often I can make a reference such as "that's an SEP" (someone else's problem) and someone within the sound of my voice will know just what I am talking about. A funny, funny book. I thouroughly enjoyed learning of the Guide by the More Than Complete Hitchhiker's Guide rather than all of the other seperate books first. I really enjoyed this version more than any of the others. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a well developed sense of humor.

If everone could see the world as Douglas Adams did, we'd all be better off. Mix dry British humor with a group of idiosyncratic characters, drop them into the space-time continium and you get non-stop laughs. At times I often found myself with a grin from ear to ear! Sometimes laughing out-loud!! Even a die hard science fiction fan needs a little bit of humor to keep a perspective.

If you haven't read this book, you are missing out on a lot. Many allusions are made to this series and many jokes and catchphrases are based off of this series of books.

Other than that, this book is a great read anyways, and if you are ever feeling down, there is nothing better to make you feel better. This is definitely one of my personal favorites in my book collection.
