In this collection of novels, Arthur Dent is introduced to the galaxy at large when he is rescued by an alien friend seconds before Earth's destruction, and embarks on a series of amazing adventures with his new companion.

    The Colour of Magic de Terry Pratchett (bluehooloovo, Morteana)
    bluehooloovo: Absurdity in a pure-fantasy world, rather than a soft-sci-fi world.
  2. 42
    Catch-22 de Joseph Heller (GaryPatella)
    GaryPatella: Although the plots and writing styles are very distinct, it seemed to me like Douglas Adams and Joseph Heller had a similar sense of humour. I think that those who enjoy the humour in Hitchhiker's Guide will also enjoy the humour of Catch-22.
  3. 21
    And Another Thing... de Eoin Colfer (Usuari anònim)
  4. 33
    American Gods de Neil Gaiman (bluehooloovo)
    bluehooloovo: Neil Gaiman wrote the introduction to this omnibus, and I think that most Adams fans will find a kindred spirit in Gaiman and enjoy his books.
  5. 12
    Starfighters of Adumar de Aaron Allston (bluehooloovo)
    bluehooloovo: Humor in space! They're practically soul-mates, though Starfighters is a Star Wars book, with all that entails. But Aaron Allston really brings the funny, though it's a different kind of funny than most of Adams's.

I want to start by saying that I found this book rather funny (I should also mention that I find British humour in general, funny). I thought Douglas' thoughts on what whales might be thinking, or even a bowl of petunias for that matter were rather entertaining. I would almost class it as a 'comedy novel', were it not for the sci-fi subject matter, which although normally, has a tendency to become too overwhelming and almost technical, was very easy to follow even with some space jargon thrown in (although the hitch-hikers guide is very good with helping to make sense of these things). Whilst Trillion was a little one dimensional, I found the main Earthling, Arthur, rather charming in his 'human normalcy'. I became easily absorbed in this story and was eager to discover the secrets of the universe along with Arthur at the pace of life (there does seem to be a lack of plot or certain direction here, like in life, everything sort of just happens as it happens).

And then it suddenly ends with them wondering where to have some lunch - but it's OK, as the story continues on in the next novel, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. ( )

This is a nice compendum of the Guides to replace my falling apart paperbacks. Many years ago, my brother was given the first book for Christmas, so it was laying around. I picked it up not knowing anything about it, and after the first two pages, my mind was blown in such a wonderful, humorous way that I couldn't stop reading.

I made the mistake of reading all five books one after the other. Near the end of the third book it started feeling like a chore (too many things that don't make sense in language that's trying a bit too hard to be clever). My reaction proved to be too soon, though, cause I straight up fell in love with the mundanity of the fourth book. The fifth one felt it had a lot going on, and I was worried a few chapters near the end cause too many subplots were happening simultaneously, and then bam!, it just... ends. So bleak. So sad. I need to read Eoin Colfer's reversal book. For Zark's sake. ( )

This is one of those books that I can't believe I've waited soo long to read. Honestly, it's a bit of a travesty that I waited nearly 27 years of my life to get around to reading this. I made the fortunate decision to listen to the audiobook version narrated by Douglas Adams himself and I was not disappointed. He perfectly captured the essence of his work with his fast paced, British, odd humored narration. Perfection. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is the first of its series and hilariously recounts the adventures of Arthur (a human earthling) and Ford (an experienced alien hitchhiker) as they try to muddle their way around the galaxies. Ridiculousness abounds. Excellent, tongue in cheek book and I can't wait to read the next in the series. ( )

Introduction: A GUIDE TO THE GUIDE
The history of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is now so complicated that every time I tell it I contradict myself, and whenever I do get it right I'm misquoted.
The house stood on a slight rise just on the edge of the village. It stood on its own and looked out over a broad spread of West Country farmland. Not a remarkable house by any means—it was about thirty years old, squattish, squarish, made of brick, and had four windows set in the front of a size and proportion which more or less exactly failed to please the eye.

Don't panic.
"You'd better be prepared for the jump into hyperspace. It's unpleasantly like being drunk."

"What's so unpleasant about being drunk?"

"You ask a glass of water."
"Well," said Ford, "if we're lucky it's just the Vogons come to throw us into space."

"And if we're unlucky?"

"If we're unlucky," said Ford grimly, "the captain might be serious in his threat that he's going to read us some of his poetry first."
Resistance is useless! (Vogon soldier shouting)
Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.
