The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Book 1 by Douglas Adams

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Book 2

The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy Book 3

This is a story about two friends who've known each other for a while. At least Arthur Dent thinks so until Ford Prefect reaveals that he's actually an alien and that the world is about to end! Not long after their conversation, a Vogon spaceship appears and announces that earth will be destroyed shortly because it is in the way of a new intergalactic highway bypass that is being built through our galaxy. Ford and Arthur manage to board the ship before the earth is demolished, and they are quickly discovered - ejected into space by the Vogon captain! Douglas Adams' wildly funny, wickedly clever sci-fi novel is collected here in a three-installment, comic ebook series. So grab your towel, stick a babel fish in your ear, and get set to join Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian and Marvin the Paranoid Android on the ultimate adventure of several lifetimes.

"There is a theory which states that if anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." Thus begins the next adventure of the intrepid occupants of the Heart of Gold: Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian, and Marvin the Paranoid Android in the first installment of the comic ebook series, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Adapted from the second novel of Douglas Adams's classic sci-fi satire series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
