The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: 42nd Anniversary Edition

Pan Macmillan, 2020 - 752 頁
A special 42nd anniversary edition of Douglas Adams' mega-selling cult classic: now in one handy paperback volume! A phenomenon across all formats, this paperback omnibus contains the complete Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy in five parts, charting the whole of Arthur Dent's odyssey through space and time. Share and enjoy.DON'T PANIC: It's 42 years since the first publication of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, on October 12, 1979.Collected together in this omnibus are the five titles that comprise Douglas Adams' wildly popular and wholly remarkable comedy science fiction 'trilogy', plus a bonus short story, Young Zaphod Plays It Safe, and a special undeleted scene.One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be rather a lot to cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. The Galaxy may offer a mind-boggling variety of ways to be blown up and/or insulted, but it's very hard to get a cup of tea.This publishing phenomenon began as a radio drama and now exists in a number of wildly contradictory versions (including a TV series, a movie and a towel) - this version, produced by Douglas Adams' original publisher, is, at least, definitively inaccurate.

Fun and original at the beginning it slowly gets tiring and annoying to read his chaotic style. Gave up after the third part or so. One of very few books (3 in total) I didn't finish 閱讀評論全文
