For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this is already more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. And the Galaxy is a very, very large and startling place indeed ...The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy became a massive cult success when it was first published and continues to sell all over the world. It introduced such memorable characters as Arthur Dent, Marvin the Paranoid Android, Zaphod Beeblebrox and, of course, the Vogons, and remains one of the funniest, most irreverent and entertaining novels ever.Read Less

Very Good Plus. No DJ Issued. 12mo-over 6¾"-7¾" tall. ND on title page. A paperback soft bound in publisher's illustrated stiff paper covers. 216 numbered pages. Crease to back cover. A few edges lightly rubbed. Otherwise a solid, tight, clean, complete copy with clean, bright and unmarked internals.
This book is probably one of the funniest things I've ever read! Even if you aren't a big sci-fi fan, the humorous conundrums of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Trillian, and Zaphod Beeblebrox will amuse.

What could possibly be better than Douglas Adams' extraordinary tale read by one of the funniest sharp men of recent times - Stephen Fry. This is the motion picture version of the inspired creative tale of a simple man - Arthur Dent - who is suddenly thrust from armchair to other world in this movie version of the tale.
