This omnibus edition begins with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in which Arthur Dent is introduced to the galaxy at large when he is rescued by an alien friend seconds before Earth's destruction. Then in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Arthur and his new friends travel to the end of time and discover the true reason for Earth's existence. In Life, the Universe, and Everything, the gang goes on a mission to save the entire universe. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish recounts how Arthur finds true love and "God's Final Message to His Creation." Finally, Mostly Harmless is the story of Arthur's continuing search for home, in which he instead encounters his estranged daughter, who is on her own quest. There's also a bonus short story, "Young Zaphod Plays It Safe," more of a vignette than a full story, which wraps up this completist's package of the Don't Panic chronicles. As the series progresses, its wackier elements diminish, but the satire of human life and foibles is ever present. --Brooks Peck --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Just as good as the "dead-tree" edition, with a number of enhancements that I want to believe that the author would appreciate.Published 5 hours ago by William E. Learn

Bought this not realising it was all six books in one, with back story and all.
Working my way through the second book now, but completely sold after the first.
All of these books are classics. They slope off in quality as it goes on, but even the worst book here is better than most of the crap on the Bestsellers list these days. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Nathaniel FitzGerald
