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.

This audio book is NOT read by the author, it is read by Martin Freeman.

The sequel to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and quite possibly better than its predecessor! The whole gang (Zaphod, Trillian, Arthur, and Ford) continue on their adventures across the universe.

I know that sequels dont live up their counter parts and personally I didn't find this book worth the read as the original.

Sequel to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy". It has the same Hilarous, zany answer to life and everything.

Hitchhiker's books are a must- humor, sci-fi, lots of great word use (or abuse). Fantastic.

I thought that this book was better than the first one. I definitely had more chuckles in it. I loved the crazy fun that goes on even though sometimes I feel like there's no real point. An overall good read.

This is not the worst book in this series, but it's sure not the best. The story tends to go off on tangents and a lot of the characters just seem to get lost in the shuffle. But if you like Douglas Adams, go for it.

Really enjoyed this one. It's been a long time since I read it though.

Brings some of the same wit that made "The Hitchhiker's Guide..." so hilarious, though not quite as great.

I laughed like mad!! It was so wonderful, I shared with all of my friends. Particularly the part about the shoe event horizon. Truly the idea that a planet of people could have gone extinct as a result of the proliferation of uncomfortable shoes. Totally rocks!!

A must very quick read for all.

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.

Come along on a zany journey to the low-rent neighborhood of the Cosmos with earthling Arthur Dent, sexy space cadet Trillian, that imperturbable alien Ford Prefect and Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-head Honcho of All Creation.
Don't forget to bring a towel, but don't bother to pack a lunch. You'll be dining at THE RESTAURANT AT THE END OF THE UNIVERSE!
