The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Title: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Author: Douglas Adams
Age Range: ?
Reviewer: Jake

'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy', by Douglas Adams, is one of the most interestingly random books I have ever read. The book is about a ordinary fellow in England named Arthur Dent. Arthur walks out the door, and about 10 minutes later, his house is demolished. Unfortunately, Dent has no time to hit the construction workers with large sticks because a bunch of blob-like creatures called Vogons blow up the world. All before the end of the fifth chapter. The only reason that Arthur survived, is because one of his best friends, a fellow known as Ford Prefect, is actually a researcher for the most interestingly random book in the entire galaxy, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.” The rest of the book is really rather simple, yet utterly impossible to understand. If you liked it, I advise you read the second, third, forth, and fifth books (in that order). I advise this book for every young adult sci-fi enjoyer, who is bored of unhumorus stories.
