By Douglas Adams

--The Philadelphia Inquirer
The unsatisfied population of planet Krikkit are in poor health of taking a look at the evening sky above their heads--so they plan to ruin it. The universe, that's. Now simply 5 contributors stand among the white killer robots of Krikkit and their target of overall annihilation.
They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered house and time visitor, who attempts to profit tips on how to fly through throwing himself on the flooring and lacking; Ford Prefect, his ally, who makes a decision to move insane to work out if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vicepresident of the crusade for actual Time, who travels in a boat powered via irrational habit; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-head honcho of the Universe; and Trillian, the horny house cadet who's torn among a power Thunder God and a truly depressed Beeblebrox.
How will all of it finish? Will it finish? basically this stalwart staff is familiar with as they struggle to stay away from "universal" Armageddon and shop existence as we all know it--and do not know it!
"ADAMS IS a type of infrequent TREASURES: an writer who, one senses, has as a lot enjoyable writing as one has reading."

Sample text

For a moment or two the old man didn't reply. He was staring at the instruments with the air of one who is trying to convert fahrenheit to centigrade in his head whilst his house is burning down. Then his brow cleared and he stared for a moment at the wide panoramic screen in front of him, which displayed a bewildering complexity of stars streaming like silver threads around them. His lips moved as if he was trying to spell something. Suddenly his eyes darted in alarm back to his instruments, but then his expression merely subsided into a steady frown.

I can hardly even remember how to speak. I keep forgetting words. I practise you see. I practise by talking to… talking to… what are those things people think you're mad if you talk to? " suggested Ford. "No, no," said Arthur. "The things he used to talk to. We're surrounded by them for heaven's sake. I've planted hundreds myself. They all died. Trees!
