The first time I read the series It didn't quite click with me but after a while something quite remarkable happened, and I understood that while the humor is good and strange, they really have an important message contained within them that can only be explained by reading.
Took me a while to see it but once I did - I never thought the same way again. Ever.
This is actually something that could help a whole lot of people :) - I think it's a little under-rated, as many people simply fail to understand it, get bored, and stop reading.
Good example of this is the recent film adaptation which quite frankly was absolute rubbish, and completely failed to capture the essence of the books.
Really go and read it :)

I love the series and would recommend it for anyone who wants to catch up on '90s sci-fi humor.
If you ever wondered why '42' comes up so much in sci-fi, this is where you should look.
If you have a teen who loves tech, this is a good set of books to get them reading.
Originally released as a BBC Radio series, H2G2 quickly found its way to print and was followed over thhe period of thirty-odd years by five follow-up books, a TV series and a film.

This edition gathers together the first five books, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979), The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (1980), Life, the Universe and Everything (1982), So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (1984) and Mostly Harmless (1992) under one cover. The sixth book, And Another Thing ... was written by Eoin Colfer in 2009 and is available seperately.
So what exactly IS H2G2? Ostensibly, it tells of Arthur's peregrinations across the universe (the Earth having been destroyed by a Vogon Constructor Fleet to make way for a hyperspace bypass) accompanied by Zaphod Beeblebrox, Ford Prefect, Trillian and Marvin The Paranoid Android. The characters sound fun but actually they are rather cod, stock sci-fi personnel so...Read more ›
His ideas about the universe life and everything especially God is worth following to ensure a religion free world wit no boundaries .crisp scientific and totally readable I often quote its episodes to match episodes in the bible.
