Douglas Adams died in May 2001.


It's science fiction and it's extremely funny...inspired lunacy that leaves hardly a science fiction cliche alive. * Washington Post *
The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes, and his travels afford a wild satire of present institutions. * Chicago Tribune *
Very simply, the book is one of the funniest SF spoofs ever written, with hyperbolic ideas folding in on themselves. * School Library Journal *
A sci-fi book, packed full of adventure and humour * The Guardian *
