User reviews about the book
Satire isn't a favorite genre of mine. Yet this series of books by Douglas Adams is a very large social satirical reduction of how silly we humans really can be. I have read the entire series 5 tines or more sense I fell in love with someone who holds the mirror up to all or creation a makes me laugh.
You will live several time over as each of your emotions ride around the cosmos.
It was my pleasure Mr.Adams and thank you.

Reading Hitchhiker's Guide for the very first time in 2016, I was absolutely blown away. The very definition of a timeless masterpiece – it holds up as though it was written yesterday.
A Work of Genius
These books are funny, relevant, irrelevant, goofy, smart, fast moving, unpredictable, satirical, and while harpooning the wonderful world of Science Fiction at times, they do so with respect. After all, it is a comic version of the genre.
Funny, deep, and thoughtful
I've been reading this book since I was in high school, and every time I read it, it puts the stress of daily life into perspective. Thank you Mr. Adams!
These books are amazing!
With a few funny moments and mildly interesting nuggets.
I was entertained and amused till the last page. Somehow Douglas Adams keeps you guessing with his unconventional style, and even if these books don't surprise you in the typical sci-fi way, his storytelling style sure does
Probably my favorite book. Everything about it is brilliant. Definitely recommend.
Great Good Fun.
Pretty hard to beat the wonderfully off-beat Douglas Adams.
I spent 4 months reading these, laughed a bunch and thought about it a lot. A lot of fun. You will find yourself genuinely interested in the lives of Arthur, Trillian, and Ford. Enjoy the ride!
