Description
This is the book that started it all. Well, not "all," certainly—cavemen and Italian bistros with waxy chianti bottles on the tables and even digital watches were around before this book—but this is the one that started the massively popular and singularly hilarious Hitchhiker's Guide saga. Well, not exactly "started" it either, since it was first a BBC radio serial of the same name (and same general characters, same general story, same general writer, etc.) in 1978. Nevertheless, no book has a better claim to the claim above than this one, which follows normal earthman Arthur Dent as he is yanked from the planet one Thursday morning by his friend Ford Prefect (an alien) just moments before it is blown to bits.
