This is a book about a book. “The hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” is a guide/book that helps space travelers to survive and know about new planets/ start or a solar system, and how to travel throughout the universe. The best thing about this book is the ability to bring out perspective on how a far more advanced life form than ours in the universe can still have the same mentality of people we meet or see every day and what kind of chaos it can create.
Humour is present everywhere. Right from the way different life forms are portrayed to giving consciousness to robots, it’s hilarious ( I just love Marvin.. he’s funny in his own depressed ways). Some of the scientific explanation of what we feel as impossible things are hysterical. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
So, these were the 4 books I recently finished reading and all of them were awesome. Share your thoughts and recommendations in the comments below.
The story starts twelve minutes before the earth is destroyed. The protagonist, Arthur, escapes with his friend, Ford, who he discovers to be an alien. This friend travels through space hitch hiking on space crafts and together, they embark on a lot of thrilling yet funny adventures in different planets of galaxy. The novel was a huge hit followed by a sequel, "The Restaurant at the end of the universe." So, if you haven't read it, grab a copy NOW. Who knows when the earth will be destroyed and you need some tips for taking a lift in an Alien spacecraft!
