Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Pretty decent deal - the books aren't the highest quality but it was an affordable way to get the whole series. Books are hilarious, and super easy and light to carry around on the go. Series itself is fun and really easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilariously Random A definite quirky read that won't be everyone's cup of tea but one that I enjoyed thoroughly. Also who doesn't want to know the answer to the meaning of life?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite Book Series to date “Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.” I've re-read this book series every year. The series is both bizarre and secretly clever. Constantly defying your expectations as to what will happen next, and requiring a significant dispension of disbelief, there is a bent towards chaotic humor. However it is also a witty satire of politics, human nature, life, the universe and everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't really go wrong #plumreview Perhaps the greatest British sci-fi comedy trilogy of five of all time. Quite an accomplishment considering the competition. Just get it already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silly and Insightful Douglas Adams Trilogy in Five Parts is one of the great modern classics of its own right. The books follow the adventures of Earthling Arthur Dent after his home planet is destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass and hilarity ensues. A necessary addition to the library of any pop culture enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true classic! Curl up with a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster and forget about the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (If you can't see it, then it can't see you). This timeless classic is filled with so much wit and charm it practically spills off the pages the moment you open the cover. All five books in the trilogy are included in this box set, which brings you to every corner of the galaxy and even to a quaint little restaurant at the end of the universe. What a great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its wonderfully witty! What can I say that hasn't already been said by so many others. I fell in love with this series when I was young and have read it probably 20 or so times. Whenever I am bored or slightly bleary in this current plane of existence, I start reading it again, even though I can quote the entire epic almost word for word (at least the stupendously amazingly brilliant part, the rest of the book is just amazingly the brilliant.) I have a special love for the Third in the trilogy of four in five parts (wrap your head around that one), which is a modified version of Douglas Adams' undeveloped "Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen" film, would have loved to see what would have been different with the The Doctor, but I cherish all the hours spent laughing out loud in a quiet room, just my trilogy-of-four-in-five-parts and I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of a kind! Absolutely amazing! From the first page to the last, you'll be sent rolling with laughter by Adam's prize winning tales of a mostly harmless Earthling, his alien friend, Ford, and Ford's semi-cousin, the freewheeling president of the galaxy. You encounter Vogons (gross, disgusting, officious creatures that evolution simply gave up on), Dentrassi (best cooks in the universe and don't give a wet slap about anything else), and even a Hooloovoo or two. So sit back and buckle-up for a unforgettable ride.
