The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy A Trilogy in Five PartsArthur will have to get used to For on his travels he'll encounter Zaphod Beeblebrox the two headed three armed ex President of the Galaxy; Trillian a sexy spacecadet he once tried to pick up at a cocktail party now Zaphod's girlfriend; Marvin a chronically depressed robot; and Slartibartfast the award winning engineer who built the Earth and travels in a spaceship disguised as a bistroArthur's crazed wanderings will take him from the restaurant at the end of the Universe where the main dish of the day introduces itself and the floor show is doomsday to the planet Krikkit locked in Slo Time to punish its inhabitants for trying to end the Universe to Earth huh wait wasn't it destroyed to the very offices. The first book was brilliant Loved the sarcastic and silly tone to it Arthur is a really good character to showcase how humans can find anything outside their own world totally incomprehensible Ford Prefect also provided so much comedy with him trying to explain things to Arthur Especially as Ford had no concept of sarcasmThe second book The Restaurant at the End of the Universe to be honest lost me a bit I was glad the characters I loved from the first book were still in it like my favourite Marvin the Paranoid Android and the banter was still really spot on between them but the plot completely lost me It all became too confusing and took me a while to read Douglas Adams has this tendency to explain or make fun of things that I personally found were not really related to the main story they just made a good joke I appreciate that it’s entertaining but for me it pulled me out of the story and I just kept skimming parts to just get to the point I’ll probably read the rest of the books when I’m in the mood for it and have time to concentrate on it
