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.''
