The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

By Keith Simanton

The production values aren't the greatest here, but this adaptation does capture some of the ebullient, hilarious anarchy of Douglas Adams's book. Arthur Dent discovers that his friend, Ford Prefect, isn't human at all but an alien on assignment, writing for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Many of Adams's delicious asides are dropped off here, like the woman who figures out the meaning of life right at the moment that she gets blown up with the rest of the Earth, but it retains what it can. Sure, the book was better, and the realization of Zaphod Beeblebox and Trillian are, well, just different, but it's a great introduction to the series for the uninitiated.

"Laughed and chuckled, reading the two or was it three? books in the series by Douglas Adams as a pubescent teenager was always more fun than playing basketball, The restruant at the end of the universe where folk gathered to share their experience, strength & dope!

Also while in ceuta north Africa I could have done with a copy of The Book I'm sure I met that depressed robot (brian) parking cars in an underground carpark (drums ones fingers and listens to the waves and the crickets)."
