The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads—so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.

They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vice president of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-president of the Universe; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox.

How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert “universal” Armageddon and save life as we know it—and don’t know it!

    " I read this book a few pages at a time, over a longer period than usual perhaps, but this is how I often read novels. However, with this book I never actually got into the story, and often felt confused when earlier bits were referred to. After I finished reading it, I had to go to Wikipedia and read the synopsis in order to get an overview. It was still a bit funny, but not nearly as good as the first two, and very fragmented. I feel like reading it all again, though, and I might enjoy it a lot more the next time I read it! "
