The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy Review

The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy – a classic, written by the irrefutable Douglas Adams. It has been a while since I last read it, with only the occasional viewing of the film in between.

Following the destruction of Planet Earth, Arthur Dent finds himself travelling the universe with a human-turned-space-traveller, two aliens and two white mice. In typical Adams style, Dent finds himself going up against bad poetry, falling whales and a paranoid android.

The book is quirky, funny and a twist on the typical science fiction. While not everyone’s cup of tea, it still strikes a chord with its unique sense of humour and skilful writing. I would heartily recommend it. 

Don’t Panic
