"DOUGLAS ADAMS IS A TERRIFIC SATIRIST."
--The Washington Post Book World
Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability--and desperately in search of a place to eat.
Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself.
Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker's Guide deleted the term "Future Perfect" from its pages, since it was discovered not to be!
"What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams' sardonically silly eyes."
--Detroit Free Press

Douglas Adams was the bestselling author of many works including The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, recently released as a major motion picture. He died in 2001.From AudioFile:
If you were, like Arthur Dent, unassumingly enjoying a cup of tea in your bathrobe one day and careening through space and time the next, you would likely be comforted to have a guide such as Martin Freeman along for the ride. Freeman played Arthur Dent in the recent big screen adaptation of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, and his narration is pleasant and familiar, even when he's relating adventures with exotic entities and improbable circumstances. Everyone gets distinctive voices, even the computers, which, with the help of sound effects, sound computerized. There can't be too many versions of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's series, and this is a worthy addition to the pantheon.
