Ford Prefect is a researcher for the revised edition of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. He has been disguised as a human for the last 15 or so years while he has been researching Earth. Just before the world is about to be blown up by a group of hostile starships, Ford rescues a newfound human friend, Arthur Dent. He beams Arthur and himself up to the starship, but eventually the captain of the ship find they are onboard and throws them out the airlock. By a near impossible feat they are picked up by another ship exactly 29 seconds later. This ship happens to be piloted by Zaphod Beeblebrox, an old friend of Ford's. This leads Ford and Arthur into an unimaginable adventure with humans, mice, robots, and two headed, three armed monsters.

I have never read a book more fit to be in the science fiction category. Douglas Adams filled the book with witty, ironic, humor that always keeps the reader interested. Despite its lack of a plot, it was strangely appealing because there was never an even remotely predictable part in the book. A caution to those who are not passionate about science fiction, this book could overwhelm you.
