One Thursday at lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the galaxy is a very strange and startling place.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy is the first book within Douglas Adam’s classic and well loved “trilogy in five parts” Hitchhiker’s compendium.

This book is for anyone with a good sense of humour and for those who think they will never like science fiction. However, if dry British wit is not appealing to you, this book may not be your best choice.

There are four others in the trilogy (I know, I know!) And Adams has also written a particularly funny couple of books about a holistic detective named Dirk Gently, well worth a read.

Cecily I love this book, but sadly they get progressively less wonderful. Whatever you do, don't read the sixth one that Eoin Colfer wrote (And Another Thing...) - with the family's blessing!
