The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Summary

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Welcome to the Best of the Masterworks: a selection of the finest in science fiction

Arthur Dent thought his day was going badly when someone tried to demolish his house.


Then someone demolished his planet.


Rescued by his friend Ford - who is not a human from Guilford, but an alien from somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse - Arthur is flung into an adventure among the stars. He will face aliens, robots, world-builders, and that girl he quite fancied who turned him down at a party one time. All in the name of research for the greatest book in the galaxy.



He just has to remember not to panic.

Part of the multi-media phenomenon The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is beloved the world over. Douglas Adams' 'trilogy in five parts' originated as a radio show, developed into a book series, and has since spawned a TV series, a film, additional sequels and expanded radio series, a famously impossible video game, and a number of stage shows. It was a Sunday Times bestseller, and ranked fourth in a 2003 BBC poll to find the Nation's Best-Loved Book.

'In a sense that only time can test, it could be said that the Hitchhiker's Guide has become folklore' - The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction


'Douglas was a genius, and that's not actually a word I toss around very lightly or use very much' - Neil Gaiman

About Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams came to world-wide prominence with the BBC Radio series THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, which subsequently became the bestselling novel, a television series, a stage play, a computer game, audio cassettes, CD-roms and a towel, and was followed by the last two books in the original trilogy, THE RESTAURANT AT THE END OF THE UNIVERSE and LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING. All three are published as Gollancz presentation hardbacks. The final two books in the Hitchhiker Trilogy are SO LONG AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH and MOSTLY HARMLESS.
