The intergalactic adventures of Arthur Dent begin in this first volume of the 'trilogy of five', Douglas Adams' comedy sci-fi classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

"It's science fiction and it's extremely funny ... inspired lunacy" Washington Post

On 12 October 1979 the most remarkable book ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor (and Earth) was made available to humanity - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

It's an ordinary Thursday lunchtime for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace bypass and his best friend has just announced that he's an alien. At this moment, they're hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed with the big, friendly words: DON'T PANIC.

The weekend has only just begun...

    I’ve been wanting this book for a while, I’m so glad I finally got it. Funny thing is, people are complaining that this book is overpriced and I’m all here like “Awww yeah! I got this one for free!” "1st of the series is free” time!

    Came here to buy before looking elsewhere, book depository only 7.99 - too big a difference. Love the iTunes and ibooks, but prices have to be fair:(
  • Too much money for a book which is dated.

    By Mullengandra
    The story may have been groundbreaking in 1984 ... Unfortunately, it has been outdone by younger rivals.
