Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The fourth book in the hilarious series that began with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, this installment returns Arthur Dent, after his years of space adventure, to a replacement Earththe first was destroyed to make way for an intergalactic highway. The new planet is identical to the old one except that all the dolphins are missing, and Dent tries to uncover the reason. PW found this book ``short on plot and long on whimsy and surreal humor.''

Meet the Author

Douglas Adams is the bestselling author of the Hitchhiker books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; The Restaurant at the End of the Universe; Life, The Universe and Everything; and Mostly Harmless.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has appeared in more forms than one might reasonably expect, most of which flatly contradict each other. It has appeared as a BBC-TV series; all sorts of different records, cassettes, and CDs, a computer game, and also, apathetically, a bath towel. A series of graphic novels is currently in preparation, and the motion picture version is confidently expected any decade now.

Adams lives partly in Islington, London, partly in Provence, France, but mostly in airport bookshops.
