The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is one the most hilarious books I have ever read! It is about a man called Arthur Dent who conveniently pulled from his home planet, Earth, by his friend Ford Prefect who is a researcher for the revised edition for the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, just before it is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway. While escaping their doom they are helped by, Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, four-armed, totally out to lunch president of the galaxy, Trillian, formerly Tricia McMillan and Zaphods girlfriend and Marvin the moody android.
The story follows the group’s adventures on board the Heart of Gold, from trying to find a cup of tea on the ship which only has a liquid which is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea to finding a mythical planet where people say, you could build a planet. And to make matters worse they are being followed by nearly everyone in the galaxy, from the police who are after Zaphod to the Vogons who are after Arthur and Ford.
This is one of the best stories I have ever read because you never know where it is going next but you are sure that there will be jokes around every corner. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes comedy over the age of ten because it can be a little hard to understand sometimes. Overall I really enjoyed this book and the laughs that came with it.
