Summary and Info
The Hitchhiker's Guide is light, fast-reading science fiction. Two earthlings and two aliens travel through the universe on a wild adventure.
The plot is engaging, with a significant amount of random and disruptive twists. Offbeat and improbable are key descriptors of this work. This is escapist fiction, but it inserts a bit of pop-philosophical content of the physics variety from time to time. The author has a distinctive ironic style that you'll either enjoy be annoyed by. This is a funny book, using the characters, common modern man and the elites to humorous effects. It also serves as a time capsule of how earthlings in the 1970's viewed computers, space and the future.
This is an enjoyable read for vacation, beach or late night consumption.
