The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This is the only book that never ceases to make me laugh out loud every time I pick it up. The cosmos should always have at least one Douglas Adams at all times. My favorite bit -- the SEP, or Someone …

A guide book from the intelligentsia to the intelligentsia expressed in a childlike and fantastic way.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
OK, I finally read it. It is occasionally barely funny but mostly just dumb. It is like Harry Potter in that I am forced to wonder how this has become such a big deal. I am not reading any more of the …

The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
"I don't read SF...but I like the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"      That was what a friend once told me. She did not read SF or fantasy, although she did like what …

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
A good fast, fun read. I tend to reread Hitchhiker's every 5 years or so and recommend it as a gateway novel for people who like wacky comedy who might develop an interest in SF.

I loved Adams' metaphor about Britain's colonial children, comparing the national personalities of Canada, the US and Australia. Spot on.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The written work is priceless, the BBC mini-series version is adequate and amusing (if somewhat dated). The newer film is my least favorite of the versions out there right now. While amusing, it felt …

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Classic sci-fi satire! Highly recommended! It gets funnier each time I re-read it.

Douglas Adams
No one quite like him. Satire with just enough science to intrigue, just enough fantasy to confuse, just enough logic to discombobulate completely, and just enough fun to... well, you get the picture.

Douglas Adams
Again, not true "Science Fiction" as much as satire. If this poll were on the merits of satire, Adams would get a +4.

Last Chance to See
I read this back in 1994 during a period where my wife and I would each read a book out of the other's library. It's basically a travel book written by that master of modern British understatement, …

A very fun read! Had me laughing the entire time. Just a random, quirky book.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This book has the spirit of Monty Python in its writing (the author worked with the comedy troupe later on in their years together). If you like Flying Circus and love science fiction then you should …
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This book is exhaustingly hilarious, all of them are. I picked up the combined edition of however many Hitchhiker books there are and just started reading. There was hardly a page that I wouldn't …
