Life, the Universe and Everything - Douglas Adams

Life, the Universe and Everything

von Douglas Adams

"Wild satire . . . The feckless protagonist, Arthur Dent, is reminiscent of Vonnegut heroes."-Chicago Tribune

The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads-so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the killer robots of Krikkit and their goal oftotal annihilation.

They are Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered space and time traveler who tries to learn how to fly by throwing himself at the ground and missing; Ford Prefect, his best friend, who decides to go insane to see if he likes it; Slartibartfast, the indomitable vice president of the Campaign for Real Time, who travels in a ship powered by irrational behavior; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-president of the galaxy; and Trillian, the sexy space cadet who is torn between a persistent Thunder God and a very depressed Beeblebrox. How will it all end? Will it end? Only this stalwart crew knows as they try to avert "universal" Armageddon and save life as we know it-and don't know it!

"Adams is one of those rare treasures: an author who, one senses, has as much fun writing as one has reading."-Arizona Daily Star
