The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

A while back I read a book called The Hitchhike’s Guide To The Galaxy, which I have decided to review after realizing, huh, all I seem to review are books by John Green. It is a Science Fiction Comedy book that has some brilliant ideas.

It begins with Arthur, our down to earth every day guy and Earth is about to be destroyed in 2 minutes. Oh dear. He is plucked of the earth by Ford Prefect some one who however much appears human, really is not. They set about traveling the Galaxy discovering new planets and the answer to the universe, as well as meeting Zaphod Breeblebrox; the world’s most self-centred, ego-maniac humanoid creature. Oh, and he has 2 heads.

I really enjoyed the Sci-Fi comedy side of things, all though the book could tend to drag things out a little. But over all it was so incredibly original it is just fun to read. I loved the chapter that reveals the answer to the universe, you never would’ve guessed the answer.
