Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hillarious! I'm not someone who usually reads sci-fi books, but this book is definately an exception. It was recommened by my friend and at first I was thinking I wasnt going to like it, but after the first couple chapters I was laughing and not wanting to put it down! The completely random and improbable events (such as mice being the smartest species on Earth and are actually doing tests on us) along with the bizzare names of things such as the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster (A fictional cocktail) make hurt from laughing. This is definately a book to read if you are looking for a laugh. No matter what kind of books you usually read, you'll love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A SciFi Essential Witty and Insane. An appreciation for illogical probabilities and dry humour is a must, otherwise you are not a true Sci-Fi fan; and this book will be a total waste of time and money for you. NB: Look for the complete edition >> titled a trilogy in 5 parts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Loved each of the 4 books contained in this omnibus as well as the 5th in the series "Mostly Harmless". Every book is hilarous and is a great intriguing read

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hilarious! This book is hilarious! But... you have to have liked the dry and bizarre humour that made the movie so great. This is one of the only books in which I continually chuckle out loud while reading. Douglas Adams follows the adventures of Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect as they hitchhike around the galaxy. They escape Earth minutes before it is destroyed to make way for an interstellar highway. From there, the book follows them for the next eight years and all the adventures that Arthur goes through, all the while wearing the same pyjamas, slippers, and housecoat. Great book. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Interesting This should be read simply to say you read it. There aren't many other books like either of the four books included in this one Trilogy of Four. They are science-fiction novels with a dark and witty comedic twist. The first part of the Trilogy of Four was stellar, but Book Two and Three were disappointing. Book Four, (So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish), brought the three together. Good to see it ended on a good note. The characters are memorable, but at times seem poorly developed. Worth reading though.
