Htichhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    #637750 - 05/20/02 01:05 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I see nobody has posted about this fine book either. If you go to the library you can usually get the whole 5 or 6 of them packed into one monolith hardcover. It's gargantuan, but worth it. If you are too concentration deprived to read it, you can probably find the tapes of the radio broadcast somewhere.

Anyhoo this is the funniest book in my universe. Bungalow Boys rating a close 2nd.

There are some slight differences from the radio script and the books. Douglas Adams was gret at revising his series before each media version. There are a total for five books. Definately worth reading.

I bought the Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide off the internet a little while ago, I just reached "So long and thanks for all the fish" I love these books, I cant get enough, I wish they'd never end. Or if they did end, just start all over again.

My brother raved and raved to me about reading these for years but I never did. I actually cheated and rented the movie. Kinda 'Dr. Who'-ish but still decent. It's on my list tho.
