The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy Reviews


"It's science fiction and it's extremely funny...inspired lunacy that leaves hardly a science fiction cliche alive." * Washington Post *
"The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes, and his travels afford a wild satire of present institutions." * Chicago Tribune *
"Very simply, the book is one of the funniest SF spoofs ever written, with hyperbolic ideas folding in on themselves." * School Library Journal *
"A sci-fi book, packed full of adventure and humour" * The Guardian *
