Editorial Reviews

Review

“WITH DROLL WIT, A KEEN EYE FOR DETAIL AND HEAVY DOSES OF INSIGHT . . . ADAMS MAKES US LAUGH UNTIL WE CRY.”
–San Diego Union

“LIVELY, SHARPLY SATIRICAL, BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN . . . RANKS WITH THE BEST SET PIECES IN MARK TWAIN.”
–The Atlantic

From the Inside Flap

At last in paperback in one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams?s beloved Hitchiker series.

The Hitchhiker?s Guide to the Galaxy
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Facing annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.

Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky? so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription conspires to thrust him back to reality. So to speak.

Mostly Harmless
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad paperback edition
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 20, 2020
This is not a review of the book but of the edition. Not only it is too thick for a paperback copy, the writing is awefuly small and the lines start too close from the centre of the book, making it impossible not to bend the spine. The paper looks old and has a brown-grey colour that also makes it hard to read if you are tired. It feels more like a newspaper - and smells like one. For the price it has I honestly expected at least a more qualitative paper...

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book... PAGES MISSING!!!
Reviewed in India on September 17, 2018
I am thoroughly enjoying the book and have reached part 3 of the trilogy of 5 (whatever that means) but unfortunately, the pages after page 308 through page 341 are missing!!!

At first, one might think it to be some sort of printing error, however the sentences after 308 and the beginning of 341 make no sense!!

All in all, it's a great book and you will definitely thank yourself for having read it, especially these days where one would find bat-$hit crazy 0-sense vampire love story hullabaloos mucking about.

Edit: So they have had a printing mishap. Pages 308 through 341 have been printed twice, and the rest of the book is alright (by far...)
