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.
This is the best book I've ever read, it really makes you think and say; "Oh, so that's it?!".
Recently, book one was selected as the book of the month in my company book club, so I picked up the Kindle version and loved it as much as the first time I read it.
I have been a fan of Douglas Adams since I first read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" when it was released.
DON'T PANIC!! This started the whole mess and is well worth your attention. Bought the Kindle version so I can re-read it as and when I want. Read morePublished 17 hours ago by Glenn A. Hendricks
