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.
Every time I read these they get better. From the thinly veiled math and philosophy to the amazing characters, ever piece is a masterpiece.Published 17 hours ago by gerowe simmons
Great books, from one of the great authors. Adams had a very deep perception of the human animal, and was able to make you laugh at it. Read morePublished 3 days ago by LL Dude
Could not possibility be better. I am grateful and bewildered and lost for words as to the absolute perfection that is every book in this series.
I love this book. It's brilliant. I have read all five of them more than once and i enjoy it more every time. The narrative is deliciously absurd and incredibly thoughtful. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Claudia

One of my favourite series of all time. Adams is a master of irony and it shows throughout his novels. Read this many times and it's still just as good.Published 7 days ago by R C
I love the Hitchhiker's collection. But the paper quality isn't very good. I suggest to pay the little extra and invest in the individual volumes.Published 8 days ago by Izz Abdullah
I read this series when I was a kid. I found it terribly entertaining, these days I find it extremely entertaining but goofy to the point of being tedious. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Another Guy
