This is the story of Arthur Dent, who seconds before Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, is plucked off the planet by his friend, Ford Prefect, who has been posing as an out-of-work actor for the last fifteen years but is really a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Together they begin a journey through the galaxy aided by quotes for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, with the words don't panic written on the front. In their travels they meet: Zaphod Beeblebrox-the two headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch President of the Galaxy. Trillian-Zaphod's girl friend, formerly Tricia McMillan, whom Arthur once tried to pick up at a cocktail party. Marvin-a paranoid android, a brilliant but chronically depressed robot. Veet Voojagig-former graduate student obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.

An excellent blend of science fiction and satire. The narration could not have been better.
