    The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy was a very good book overal

    The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy was a very good book overall. With great word choice and humor present throughout the book it is truly worthy of being a favorite piece of literature for our generation. The characters succeeded in entrancing the audience in the book and the story made the readers mind wander throughout the universe, while somehow still keeping the reader on track with what is happening. Zaphod Beeblebrox was initially thought to be a hippy-turned-criminal character, but then a mystery begins to develop around what happened to him in his life before meeting up with the gang and going on this adventure to Magrathea. Trillian is the reasonable, patient, curious, listener. She is the one who wants to know more about the universe around her, which Zaphod does not have much interest in. Arthur was shocked at what happened with aliens at first, but becomes less and less shocked at the strange things that happen to the group on their adventures. For instance, when the missiles were hurtling toward their ship, The Heart of Gold, rather than panicking and screaming that they were going to die, he pulled the improbablilty drive switch and they were saved. Ford Prefect was not described quite as much in the story. He did however, have a paragraph or two where he was described as looking at the stars andmissing home and he was not happy about being stranded on Earth for fifteen years. And finally, I get to the author, Douglas Adams. Douglas Adams has the unique imagination of a child, but with the sophistication of a grown man and this allows him to make a great story like this without getting too bizarre with the story or characters. Overall, well done Mr. Adams, you have created a book that should go down in history as one of the greatest and unique books in history.

    more from this reviewer

    Easily one of the five or six best versions of the Hithhiker's Guide

    This is the best TV adaptation of a radio series simultaneously adapted into a book in the history of the form. Surprisingly competent for a BBC production of the period, it knocks the theatrical movie (which is still quite enjoyable) flat on its ass.

    It's a comedy masterpiece!

    It's all been said before, however, Hal's review for the all movie guide contains the glaringly incorrect information that the books spawned the Radio series. The radio series came first and THGTTG was only supposed to be one episode of a series called 'The ends of the earth'. Adams liked the ideas behind that first episode so much, he devoloped the rest of the series around it, making them fit the 30 minute segments which is why the radio series had fits instead of episodes. Anyway, enough of the banter, buy it now. Let's hope the forthcoming Movie is as fittingly funny as this version. Mos Def: great things are expected of you as Ford, please make Doglas Adams proud.

    A Must Have for SciFi fans....

    This miniseries is a wonderful addition to your collection, especially if you liked the books, or ''Red Dwarf'', or ''Doctor Who'', or ''Black Adder''. The special effects are pretty sorry, but that's not what you would be looking for with this series, anyway. The extras disk is great. I especially like ''behind the scenes'' where you get to see how mind-numbingly boring working as a TV actor can be. It's also great to have footage of the late Douglas Adams. A very well-done DVD package.
