Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Including everything you wanted to know about the first three books but never thought to ask. "He lost all faith in the straightforward operation of cause and effect the day he got up intending to catch up with some reading and ended up on a prehistoric earth with a man from betelgeuse anda spaceship-load of alien telephone sanitisers...". Left at the end of Life, the Universe and Everything with the address for God's Final Message To His Creation, Arthur Dent let this crucial information slip his mind. He tries everything to jog his memory - meditation, mind-reading, hitting himself about the head with blunt objects. But none of it works. Of course, as everyone knows, the answer lies in making life flash before your eyes...

Review:

"The looniest of the lot." Time

Review:

"The most ridiculously exaggerated situation comedy known to created beings... Adams is irresistible." The Boston Globe

Review:

"A madcap adventure...Adam's writings teeter on the fringe of inspired lunacy." United Press International

Synopsis:

The fourth adventure in the bestselling Hitchhiker's series brings Arthur Dent back to Earth with nothing more to show for his long, strange travel than a ratty towel, a plastic shopping bag, and the belief it was all a figment of his stressed-out imagination. Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription, the mysterious disappearance of Earth's dolphins, and the discovery of his battered copy of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy all conspire to give Arthur the sneaking suspicion that something otherworldly is indeed going on...

God only knows what it all means. And fortunately, He left behind a Final Message of explanation. But since it's light-years away from Earth, on a star surrounded by souvenir booths, finding out what it is will mean hitching a ride to the far reaches of space aboard a UFO with a giant robot. But what else is new?
