4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, irritating presentation, October 11, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Illustrated Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hardcover)
First, the good news: this contains the complete Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy novel, one of the greatest books ever written. Problem is, the photos and art that accompany this particular version only serve to distract the reader and snap him/her out of the fictional dream. Die-hard Adams fans are the only people who will really want this, and then purely as a conversation piece. If you are new to the world of the Guide, you would be better served by getting The Ultimate Hitch-Hiker's Guide, which has the text of this book plus the other four in the series and a short story, and no pictures.

When you say "this contains the complete Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy novel" you leave SO much in question.
Is it JUST the first book (the only one called "Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy") ?
Is it JUST the five books written by Douglas Adams?
Does it contain the 6th book written by Eoin Colfer called "And Another Thing" ?

And Another Thing... (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
