When the Earth is demolished to make way for an intergalactic highway, the only survivor finds himself travelling across the universe. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is the first book in the hilarious science fiction series by Douglas Adams. Summary of the Book Arthur Dent is a simple man. He only hopes for his monotonous life, boring routine and to live on in his home on the ground. However, the government decides to demolish his home to pave way for a superfast highway. His friend, Ford Prefect, pulls him away as he tries to fight the demolition crew. Ford explains that there’s no time to worry about his house. An intergalactic demolition crew is headed toward Earth, to destroy it to make way for another highway, one set in space. Ford reveals that he’s an alien, and that he’s about to escape the Earth. He invites Arthur to join him. All he’s going to need is a towel. But he mustn’t panic, because that’s the first rule of hitchhiking across the galaxy. About Douglas Adams Douglas Adams was an English writer, dramatist and humorist, known best for his science fiction series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. He has also written Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. Series Reading Order The story continues in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

“Extremely funny . . . inspired lunacy . . . [and] over much too soon.”—The Washington Post Book World

Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

Together this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker’s Guide (“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have”) and a galaxy-full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox—the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod’s girlfriend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.

Where are these pens? Why are we born? Why do we die? Why do we spend so much time between wearing digital watches? For all the answers stick your thumb to the stars. And don't forget to bring a towel!
