Book Review: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
Arthur Dent is kind of a nobody, miserable sort of guy living in England. Then the most remarkable thing happens - his friend, Ford Prefect rescues him from the total destruction of the Earth. (The Earth had to be destroyed because it was in the way of the new galactic freeway.) Ford is really working on revising The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when he accidentally got stuck on Earth. So there they are, hitchhiking their way across the galaxy and they land themselves right in the middle of the biggest question of all about life, the universe and everything - or at least figuring out what the question is since the answer is already known.
Does this make any sense? Not really, I know. That is why you need to read it! It is so much fun! You'll meet incredible characters (I love Marvin the depressed robot) and you'll never look at mice the same way again. Thumbs up!
