A good, though sometimes confusing at times, book with witty humor. Fits well into the series and we continue to watch the main characters on their strange journey through space.

Third book in the Hitchhiker's "Trilogy"; great fun following hapless Arthur Dent on his further adventures throughout the universe!

Sci-fi at its best. Recently made into a movie.

For fans of Douglas Adams, this is a great book. I'm not a big fan of his and personally, I thought of all the Hitchhiker books, this was by far the worst. The story is just not coherent enough for my tastes.

Sore thumbs, March 11, 2005
Reviewer: Amanda Richards (Georgetown, Guyana)

This is my third hitchhiking trip, and although my thumb is getting sore, I have no choice but to keep on truckin'.

Coming from the larger part of the world, where "krikkit" is a national obsession, I found this one particularly clever, even though the aficionados will shudder at the abuse of the hallowed ashes.

Always willing to throw a stinging barb here and there, I also loved the immortal Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged, who is on a quest to personally insult every individual being in the Universe - in alphabetical order.

Add in the flying lessons, the many-times-reincarnated Agrajag (not an Arthur Dent fan by any means), and of course my favorite robot Marvin, and you have an easy reading fun hike across the galaxy, with less of the sci-fi stuff, and more of the humor.

There's less Zaphod Beeblebrox than usual, but as he spends most of this story in a drunken stupor while Trillian flirts with the God of Thunder, we won't bother him at this particular time.

Sticking my sore thumb out now for the next adventure in hitchhiking - see you there!

What can I say? The Hitchhiker's books are outstanding. They combine disparaged genres- sci-fi, humor, whatever- into something worth keeping on my shelf. I just had an extra copy to post.

This series is PHENOMENAL! Not for light readers, it's one that pays off in the end. Douglas Adams weaves a story like NONE I've ever read. He can start a thread in a story, and catch it back up to tie it up neatly four books later, and have used every word until that point to help tie it up which creating new threads in those same words that he'll tie up in other books the same neat and mind blowing way.

It's funny, explaining the book is a lot like reading it... nonsense that makes sense.

I gave this book five stars. Just kidding! Check this out! If you take Spaceballs, Monsters versus Aliens, Player Piano, and Catch 22, throw them into a blender and purée, you might just end up with this book. This wacky look at intergalactic space travel, zany situations, and preposterous characters permeates the ephemeral, volatile fabric of this convoluted, sometimes witty, often disjointed fabrication. Still its mostly harmless. Like the guy who fell asleep in class and was prodded by his neighbor with the answer to the teachers question about transendentalism; who jumped up and yelled 42; youll discover the answer to life, the universe and everything.

The improbability that someone would write this book is two to the power twenty-five thousand to one against and falling.
The improbability that someone would publish it is two to the power fifty thousand to one against and falling.
The improbability that someone would buy it is two to the power seventy-five thousand to one against and falling.
The improbability that someone would actually read it is two to the power one hundred thousand to one against and falling.
The improbability that a reviewer would place it on a must read list is two to the power of infinity minus one to one against and falling.

The third book in the in-aptly named Hitchhikers trilogy, which contains at least five books. Very funny parody of science fiction, can easily be enjoyed by non-science fiction readers as well.

Wonderful, great series. Can't wait to see the movie but I' sure it won't be as good as the book.
