The only problem with this book is the thin pages. Oh, and Douglas Adams is dead.

i read it a while ago.. get Salmon of Doubt when youre done ( blah.. i would, but no money ). Its a bunch of his unfinished work- including a next story in the hitchhiker series ( another?? how! )

my copy of ultimate h2g2 has a black cover with gold-colored engraving in it.. cost 16 bucks.. ??
odd

btw, look into Tom Robbins if you like Adams

I have this same 6-book edition, and read it from front to back while enjoying every minute of it. In fact, I cited his work in an essay I wrote yesturday (got a 100, and the teacher said it was the best essay she had read this year)
If you truely appriciate this book, get the leather bound edition. It's edges are gold trimmed, like the bible, and has a built in ribbon to save your place!

I have this book also. I only paid $10 with free shipping from buy.com a while back. I absolutely loved the first book. The second was pretty good. But by time I got half way done with the 3rd I was bored out of my mind. And haven't picked it back up again since. The story seems to get to zanny and hard to follow. I dunno maybe I'll give it another try one of these days.
