Summary:

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

SOON TO BE A HULU SERIES • Now celebrating the pivotal 42nd anniversary of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

It’s an ordinary Thursday morning for Arthur Dent . . . until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly after to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and Arthur’s best friend has just announced that he’s an alien.

After that, things get much, much worse.

With just a towel, a small yellow fish, and a book, Arthur has to navigate through a very hostile universe in the company of a gang of unreliable aliens. Luckily the fish is quite good at languages. And the book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy . . . which helpfully has the words DON’T PANIC inscribed in large, friendly letters on its cover.

Douglas Adams’s mega-selling pop-culture classic sends logic into orbit, plays havoc with both time and physics, offers up pithy commentary on such things as ballpoint pens, potted plants, and digital watches . . . and, most important, reveals the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Now, if you could only figure out the question. . . .

    Two of our boys grew up loving this book, so I thought it would be a fun 'road trip' book. Glad I listened to it, I don't feel out of the loop any more! Very nice job on the part of the narrator! Story line was interesting and creative. I enjoyed the first two-thirds best. The wrap up, finish of the story is a bit untidy. Overall, very amusing, entertaining and there were at least 9 out loud chuckles!

    Stephen Fry was the perfect choice for narrating this wonderful piece of space silliness. I loved it and will listen to the rest of the series.

    I initially got this book to go to sleep to, but it's hard to sleep because I always get wrapped up in the story. This is one of my favorite books to return to. Great job!

    I love this audiobook. I have listened to it many times and when I am down or bored, it’s a book to return back to. The narrator is the best!
