Reviews

"Extremely funny . . . inspired lunacy . . . [and] over much too soon."--The Washington Post Book World "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] whimsical odyssey . . . Characters frolic through the galaxy with infectious joy."--Publishers Weekly
