Don't Panic: collected together in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Boxset are the five novels comprising Douglas Adams' hilarious "Triology in Five Parts." Wildly popular and wholly unique, this bestselling series needs no introduction and is indispensable for would-be galactic travellers and Douglas Adams fans, old and new.The Hitchhiker's Guide to the GalaxyOne 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.The Restaurant at the End of the UniverseWhen all questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - 'Where shall we have dinner?' The Restaurant at the End of the Universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about.Life, the Universe and EverythingFollowing a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. An eddy in the space-time continuum lands him, Ford Prefect, and their flying sofa in the middle of the cricket ground at Lord's, just two days before the world is due to be destroyed by the Vogons. Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown... So Long, and Thanks for All the FishThere is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It's not an easy thing to do, and Arthur Dent thinks he's the only human who's been able to master this nifty little trick - until he meets Fenchurch, the woman of his dreams. Fenchurch once realised how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately, she's forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God's Final Message to His Creation, they go in search of it. And, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it...

This is one of those books for which I need to be in the right mood. This British, Terry Gilliamesque humor evokes more of a light chortle than a full on guffaw from me, and is always on the razor's edge of falling flat. (It took me seventeen attempts to finally take to the movie Brazil, for example.) I've picked up this book repeatedly over the years, knowing it is my duty as an intelligent reader to spend time with it, knowing its cultural contributions--only to lose steam within a few chapters. And it's only about 150pp of 35 trim chapters! But this time it worked. I had a great time. Adams toys with all the elements that make a great sci-fi thriller and adds in laceratingly humorous commentary on mankind (I really did guffaw when a certain extraterrestrial was taken aback at the fact that Earthlings couldn't figure out how to get to Alpha Centari yet--I mean, it's only a mere 4 light years away!). Adams also sheds light on the fact that, really, most of us don't really know what the Big Question is (so seeking the Big Answer is built on a false premise). Brilliant. I also now know what Richard Feynman meant by "So long, and thanks for all the fish" and why the Earth and mice are actually critical parts of the meaning of everything. I look forward to stopping off for a bite to eat at a certain restaurant now. ( )

Arthur Dent har en riktigt dålig dag, redan innan Jorden förstörs för att göra plats åt en intergalaktisk motorväg. Och efter det blir det bara värre ... Sekunder innan Jorden sprängs i småbitar räddas Arthur av Ford Prefect. Tillsammans sätter de upp tummen och med endast en handduk, en liten gul fisk och en bok i sitt bagage ger de sig ut på en fantastisk resa genom universum. Lyckligtvis är fisken rätt bra på språk och boken, 'liftarens Guide till Galaxen', är till stor hjälp ...

Got through half of this, 2-3 books, before deciding that:
- it's not actually funny. At all.
- much, much better for teenagers
- and something else.

Abandoned. ( )

Det är en helt vanlig morgon för Arthur Dent; inte alls olik andra morgnar. Åtminstone inte förrän han inser att det står en bulldozer och massor av arbetare utanför hans fönster. Det visar sig nämligen att hans hus måste rivas då en ny genomfartsled ska byggas och hans hus råkar stå precis i vägen. Men när han ligger där i gyttan i bara badrocken dyker hans vän Ford förbi. Han har nyheter som kräver att protesten ligger på is bara en liten stund.

Själva Jorden är nämligen på väg att sprängas för att ge plats åt en intergalatisk genomfartsled. Ford vet detta för han själv är utomjording; han hamnade på Jorden på grund av studier för det digitala uppslagsverket Liftarens guide till galaxen. Men nu ser han sin chans att återvända hem, denna gång med Arthur eftersom Jorden ändå ska förintas. I sista sekund lyckas de lifta med ett av skeppen i Vogonflottan vars uppgift är att röja Jorden ur vägen.

Ungefär samtidigt stjäl Fords halvkusin Zaphod Beeblebrox stjäl det nya rymdskeppet Hjärtat av Guld från dess premiärvisning. Det är ett skepp som drivs med hjälp av en oändlig osannolikhet. Hjärtat av Guld är nämligen det enda skeppet i universum som kan hjälpa honom på traven med de planer han smider. Problemet är bara att inte riktigt vet vad dessa planer är...

Det är en osannolik bok där allt och inget kan hända. Hela boken känns som ett enda citat; det är svårt att välja de bästa delarna; man skulle bli tvungen att inkludera hela boken. Samtidigt som den är full av klockrena och ironiska repliker och beskrivningar så är den även fascinerande djup. På ett sådant där jobbigt sätt som man helst ignorerar fast man vet att det är omöjligt. ( )

OK

But the somewhat weak ending can never ever take away from books 1 & 2, they're so many stars that the average still comes out way above 5. ( )
