Product Description

One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering geniusDazzlingly inventiveFizzing with ideas . . . BrilliantI haven’t known many geniuses in my life. Some brilliantly smart people, but only a tiny handful would I class as geniuses. I would class Douglas, because he saw things differently, and he was capable of communicating the way he saw things, and once he explained things the way he saw them, it was almost impossible to see them the way you used to see themThe first book that wasn’t by Roald Dahl that really made me laugh. Arthur Dent is this humdrum person in search of a cup of tea and ends up going on mind-blowing adventures. He is so ordinary and the circumstances are so extraordinary that it was the funniest thing I’d ever readIt changed my whole life. It's literally out of this worldReally entertaining and funHitchhiker’s is packed with that unique energy, all barmy and bristling and bold. This book can be witty, iconoclastic, godless, savage, sweet, surreal, but above all, it dares to be silly. Fiercely, beautifully sillyHe had almost a Wodehousian style and some of his phrases and jokes entered our language. He changed the way people spokeThere has never been another writer remotely like Douglas Adams. He discovered a completely new genre – scientific wit – and having discovered it he raised it to dizzying heightsQuite good I suppose, if you like brilliantly entertaining books written with a touch of imaginative geniusVery occasionally a book comes along that changes the way you laugh and what you laugh aboutOne of the world’s sanest, smartest, kindest, funniest voicesSheer delightMagical . . . read this bookReally entertaining and funMuch funnier than anything John Cleese has writtenWho is John Cleese?I know for a fact that John Cleese hasn’t read itA special 42nd anniversary edition of Douglas Adams's mega-selling cult classic, with additional material from the Adams archives.

'One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius' - David Walliams

An international phenomenon and pop-culture classic, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been a radio show, TV series, novel, stage play, comic book and film. Following the galactic (mis)adventures of Arthur Dent, Hitchhiker’s in its various incarnations has captured the imaginations of curious minds around the world . . .

It's an ordinary Thursday lunchtime for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and his best friend has just announced that he's an alien. At this moment, they're hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed, in large friendly letters, with the words: DON'T PANIC.

The weekend has only just begun . . .

This 42nd Anniversary Edition includes exclusive bonus material from the Douglas Adams archives, and an introduction by former Doctor Who showrunner, Russell T Davies.

Continue Arthur Dent's intergalactic adventures in the rest of the trilogy with five parts: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Life, the Universe and Everything, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, and Mostly Harmless.

Douglas Adams created all the various and contradictory manifestations of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptations, comic book and bath towel. He lectured and broadcast around the world and was a patron of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Save the Rhino International. Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, UK and lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, London, before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where he died suddenly in 2001.

In addition to Hitchhiker, He is also the author of the Dirk Gently novels: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul and the unfinished The Salmon of Doubt.

The international phenomenon that is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy needs no introduction, but it's going to get one anyway. Douglas Adams originally created the comedy science fiction series as a radio drama in 1978, and it was soon adapted into a bestselling novel (selling over 15 million copies in his lifetime) - as well as into a variety of stage shows, comic books, a TV series, a feature film, and even a computer game. The infamous 'Trilogy in Five Parts' - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; The Restaurant at the End of the Universe; Life, The Universe and Everything; So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish; and Mostly Harmless - follows the galactic (mis)adventures of Arthur Dent, a human who unexpectedly survives when planet Earth is demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. In between being alternately shot at and insulted by an extraordinary number of people, Dent discovers the cosmic significance of the number 42, the importance of knowing where your towel is, and just how hard it is to get a good cup of tea out there.
