Publisher's Summary

The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads, so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the white killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler, who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vice president of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-head honcho of the Universe; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox.
How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert "universal" Armageddon and save life as we know it, and don't know it!

"Adams is one of those rare treasures: an author who, one senses, has as much fun writing as one has reading." (The Arizona Daily Star)

It's my favorite of the series

This book started out as meast least favorite of the series, but has grown on me ever since. It's now my favorite and, in my opinion, is Adams' most creative Hitchhiker book. Martin Freeman is a top rate narrator. He is much more versatile in his voice acting than I would have thought, has unique voices for each character, and is highly entertaining. I highly recommend this book, or any of this series.

They changed the words???

They change the word Fu©k to Belgium? I can understand in this day and age the insatiable need to cut out any hint of political incorrectness but come on? This ruins Douglas Adams writing. Terrible idea. please make it available with the original and correct words.

Martin Freeman did a good job narrating this book. Other than the above this is a well done version of the book.
