Beschreibung

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Extremely funny . . . inspired lunacy . . . [and] over much too soon.”—The Washington Post Book World

SOON TO BE A HULU SERIES • Now celebrating the pivotal 42nd anniversary of the original radio show on which the book was based.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Seconds before Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of 
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

Together, this dynamic pair began a journey through space aided by a galaxyful of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox—the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian (formerly Tricia McMillan), Zaphod’s girlfriend, whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; and Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he’s bought over the years.

Where are these pens? Why are we born? Why do we die? For all the answers, stick your thumb to the stars!

Praise for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

“A whimsical oddyssey . . . Characters frolic through the galaxy with infectious joy.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Irresistable!”

The Boston Globe

Douglas Adams was born in 1952 and created all the various and contradictory manifestations of
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: radio, novels, TV, computer games, stage adaptations, comic book, and bath towel. He was born in Cambridge and lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, London, before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where he died suddenly in 2001.

I absolutely loved this! Adams is incredibly smart and hilarious. His jokes can be silly and observational, showing the absurdities of society, especially British society.

Adams is incredibly smart and hilarious. His jokes can be silly and observational, showing the absurdities of society, especially British society. It's one of the greatest works of sci-fi and satire out there. I've listened to the audiobook version narrated by Stephen Fry and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Witty, entertaining and creative - this book is even for those who don't like or read sci-fi. It's really that good.

Dont miss it!

Mindestens genauso gut wie der Film und auch beim lesen genauso ein Erlebnis. Die Philosophie dieses Buches wird auf so eindrucksvolle Weise näher gebracht das man nachdenken und lachen muss. Einfach Klasse.

Einfach herrlich

Das Buch entführt den Leser auf eine satirische und spannende Reise. Ich konnte diesen Klassiker nicht mehr aus den Händen legen. Don't panic Satire lebt..
