Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

  • Written By: Douglas Adams
    Type of book
    : Comedy and Science fiction

Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy is a comedy and a science fiction book. This book by Douglas Adams is just the first from many books he wrote telling the story of Arthur Dent. One day like any other in planet earth, Arthur Dent, a human who had a pretty regular life woke up to find out his house was about to be demolished because of the construction of a highway. What he did not know was that in about 30 minutes the earth itself was about to be destroyed for the construction of an “intergalactic freeway”. Luckily his friend, Ford Prefect, was well aware of this situation and saves both by hitchhiking into one of the ships which were to destroy earth. From this moment on, both friends begin an amazing adventure throughout the whole universe with the aid of the Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy, which was in Ford’s possession.
I believe it is a great book which will keep anyone laughing at the situations the main characters live till the end. It was really interesting to read such a different point of view about the universe and even about the meaning of life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore the universe and have a good time at the same time.
