I borrowed this book from my student Artemis. They had to do a project about it at school. When I heard about the story it sounded interesting. But when I actually saw the book, my enthusiasm began to fade... it was about 600 pages long.
A fascinating trip through space, through time, witty dialogues and a lot of playing with words.
Douglas Adams, the author has worked as a script editor for "Dr Who" and made the "Hitchhiker" as a play for BBC radio, and then it was "evolved" to a book and later to a film.
If you like sci fi and have the time, it's a good read!
