    1. The universe is a joke. Even before I was shown the meaning of life in a dream at 17 (then promptly forgot it because I thought I smelled pancakes), I knew this to be true--and yet, I have always felt a need to search for the truth, that nebulous, ill-treated creature. Adams has always been, to me, to be a welcome companion in that journey. Between the search for meaning and the recognition that it's all a joke in poor taste lies Douglas Adams, and, luckily for us, he doesn't seem to mind if you [...]

    2. Just as funny as advertised, but I made the mistake of reading the collection of all five novels, and - what's more - trying to read them all in one go. Once I got about halfway through Life, the Universe, and Everything, it had stopped being funny and had gotten a little confusing. Adams is excellent at humor, not so much at plot.So, for clarification: 5 stars for the original Hitchhiker's, 4 for The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and 3 stars for the others.

    3. OK. Where do I start with this one. It's a doozy.Let's first of all say that I think this is one of the best uses of the English language. It's right up there with, well, anything else. I mean, just read the sentences. He is a lot like Tolkien, in that he makes the words themselves the art. But where Tolkien will take English and make it into a lush, broad canvas, Mr. Adams turns English into a plaything. Let's put my last sentence another way: The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy is the literar [...]

    4. So my journey with The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy finally came to an end. What an enjoyable journey it was! The characters, the stories, the writing and the essence of Douglas Adam’s work – it was fantastic!!!I had heard a lot about this cult series and finally got to read it – thanks to a friend. A very big thank you to you indeed!This book contains the entire Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy series by Douglas Adams i.e. 5 novels and 1 story:1. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Gal [...]

    5. It's that book you pick up and feel obligated to love, if only to escape grievous fan persecution. Well. Here goes. Let's start with the humour. Yes, it's everything that humour should be. For a while, you are oh-so-amused and impressedbut then you weary of being so amused. Akin to being kept on the edge of your seat for a good few hours - something's going to get sore. It's just such a strain. I skipped ten or so pages near the middle but I'm sure those ten pages were, like the rest of the book [...]

    6. I definitely am overdue to reread this comic scifi classic! I remember laughing all the time at the quirky universe that Adams conjured up, but admit to have forgotten many of the detailson my 2018 TBR!

    7. I first read what was then the Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy in high school. I remember sitting on the bleachers in the gym reading while other people played volleyball or some other indoor sport and being swept away on a rollicking ride across the universe, and even to its end. Much more fun than volleyball. You brought much joy and laughter to my life, Douglas Adams. So long and thanks for all the fish.

    8. Ovaj Marvin je legenda!!! :D Prva dva dela su maestralno napisana,preostali delovi razvučeni i za nijansu slabiji,ali to mi nije pokvarilo celokupan utisak o ovom romanu.Jedna od knjiga kojoj ću se nanovo vraćati :)

    9. 2.5 stars I ended it after four books because I felt like the fourth book (epilogue not included) had a nice ending and also I'm bloody sick of it

    10. Okumayı literal olarak yıllara yaydığım (okumaya pek kıyamadığım) türünün ilk, belki de tek örneği. Douglas Adams'ın Doctor Who metinlerine de el attığını söylediğimde bu kitabın aşağı yukarı hangi frekansta olduğunu tahmin edebilirsiniz. Yer yer sesli güldüğüm bu bilimkurgu kitapta sarkastik üslubu tork olarak kullanan yazar homo sapiensi yer yer politik ve sosyolojik olarak eleştirmek için işini türlü çeşit uzaysal saçma sapanlıklarla donatarak ortaya p [...]

    11. Prilično sam sigurna da je ovo, za sada, jedina knjiga prilikom čijeg čitanja sam morala da napravim nekoliko meseci pauze zarad vlastitog dobra, što se ispostavio kao dobar potez.Apsurd kojim ovih pet priča obiluje je inicijator fantastičnog humora i u više navrata sam se nasmejala glasnije nego što bih smela da priznam. Takođe, ne mogu a da se ne sažalim na sirotog Artura Denta koji mi je momentalno prirastao srcu uz još sirotijeg Marvina. Razlog za pomenutu pauzu tokom čitanja le [...]

    12. The coolest five-book trilogy ever. Seriously some of the best and original science fiction ever written, and it just happens to be hilarious. Not too many people have the balls to write a trilogy that starts off with the absolute destruction of earth for no other reason than the fact that it was in the path of a hyperspace highway that was soon to become obsolete with the advent of the improbability drive. Speaking of which, the technology in these books is easily more imaginative than anything [...]

    13. One of the funniest books, and one of my favourite, ever. Read it now - it's got good writing, great jokes and the meaning of life thrown in. What more could you want?

    14. İroni ve kronoloji kavramları kendilerine yeni birer biçim bulmuş olabilir bu kitapla. Evrenin saçma sapanlıkları ve aşırı sistemli rastgeleliği üzerine, aynı şekilde saçma sapan ve aşırı sistemli bir kitap. Her şey yerini buluyor ama tam o anda bulunan şeyin orada olmadığı ortaya çıkıyor. Şaşkın bir arayış ve anlamsız buluşlar, tekrar, tekrar ve tekrar.Keşke Marvin için başlıbaşına bir bölüm olsaydı :/Elveda ve bütün satırlar için teşekkürler :)

    15. Douglas Adams is either the craziest, most creative and funniest author I've ever read, or he's just on crack. Or maybe it's a little of both.The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the books that follow it are all completely insane and impossible to summarize, so I'm not even going to try. They're books that can't be taken too seriously, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy the portrait of insanity Adams so expertly paints.

    16. Şimdi nereden başlasam nasıl anlatsam ne desem bilemiyorum bu kitap için. Standart bir bilim kurgu kitabı değil onu söylemem lazım. Çok satan, bilmem ne ödülü almış, kitaptan sonra hemen filmi yapılmış teknik terimlerle dolu kitaplardan hiç değil. Zaten terimleri sadece bu kitapta göreceğiniz türden.Bir yol hikayesi denebilir mi? Evet, belki bu olabilir. Galaksinin herhangi bir yerinde geçen, arabalar yerine uzay gemilerinin olduğu, yolların zemininin olmadığı bir yol [...]

    17. I think after having made little to no progress in the past about 9 months it's best if I just give up even pretending I'm still reading this book.The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was the book I really wanted to read - classic English comedy? Bring it on! I enjoyed that book; if I was rating this alone it would be a good 4-star book - it was funny and inventive with some great characters's the other books in this series that made it so difficult for me. The second - The Restaurant at the End [...]

    18. Why does British humor rely so much on the use of indifference? Just something I've noticed.So the Earth is destroyed. In an indifferent manner, which makes it hi-larious. A bloke is saved and, unmoored in the Universe, is dragged through a series of droll hijinx. One formulaic hijinx after another, which are really just vehicles for terribly self-satisfied one-liners. And then the novel stops at a seemingly arbitrary point -- though I suspect it's actually the point of diminishing returns. At a [...]

    19. I was thinking about the radio version of this, which I heard scraps of at odd times when from time to time it was repeated. One in particular stuck in my head which was that one of the characters was stuck on a planet in habited by particularly intelligent birds who had evolved out of the human population when their economy collapsed due to an excess of shoe shops. I liked this because it reminded me of Bromley, which as a child to my mind had far too many shoe shops all of which it seemed I wa [...]

    20. An astounding 4 star for this series.The satire in the first two books is just mind blowing. Many a times I had to shut the book and laugh my heart out. There were many comical events in this series that I thoroughly enjoyed. The later books were not as good as the first two but I still found the story line and humor to be good. The last book was definitely not the end of the series because the author died while writing the next one. Sadly, it was not upto the standard set by Adams in previous i [...]

    21. This review is for the first two books only.I have a confession to make: I am allergic to sci-fi. The kind that has as its hero a humanoid who lives in 23345 AD on a dystopian red planet, where he must fight slimy insectoid aliens whose sole purpose in life is to lay and hatch their filthy eggs on human bodies. The guy is barely human anyway, with half his face swathed in shiny robotic gear with glowing red eyes that look like the battery-powered tip of my 10 year old’s toy laser gun. Or inste [...]

    22. "I give up!"I exclaimed this very proudly. Just as proudly as Arthur exclaimed, "I will go mad!" At the beginning of the third book. I enjoyed the first two books and the beginning of the third but decided that I have nothing to gain from reading the rest of this series. I was wrong! If you are going to read Douglas Adams then my advice to you is to read them one book at a time and not in The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide. I grew tired of Douglas Adams' roundabout jokes that took on an identical s [...]

    23. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the GalaxyWhen I was studying in college, the smart guys in my class used to read a particular kind of books. Some of these books were ‘The Lord of the Rings’ by JRR Tolkien (before it became a movie and was read by everyone else), novels by P.G.Wodehouse, ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, ‘2001 : A Space Odyssey’ by Arthur C. Clarke, ‘One, Two, Three…Infinity’ by George Gamov, ‘The Fountainhead’ by Ayn Rand and ‘Zen and [...]

    24. "Absürdlükler Teorisi" ve "Saçmalıklar Kuramı" ile yaratılan, espritüelliği yüksek bir evrenin akıllıca kurgulanması diyebiliriz kitap için. Aslında yazarın dehası da bu işte: Sunduğu evrenin "anlamsızlığı"nın oldukça sürükleyici oluşu. Kimine göre(celi) boş bir kitap (ya da kitaplar) gelebilir ama, "okumadan bilemezsin" derler. En can alıcı noktası, bizleri, insanları ve dünyayı evrenin "ucuna "koyarak ne kadar da önemsiz olduğumuzu bize hatırlatması. Sonu [...]

    25. Better late than never. After decades of hearing about this series, I finally broke down and read this collection. I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out.I will definitely keep my towel handy.The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (★★★★★)The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (★★★★★)Life, the Universe and Everything (★★★★★)So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (★★★★★)Mostly Harmless (★★★★★)

    26. Yorumun aslı ve devamı Yorum Cadısı'nda.Otostopçunun Galaksi Rehberi mizahi yönü kuvvetli, kurgusu derin, anlatımı sürükleyici, gerçekliğin çok ötesinde bir eser. Rehber'le henüz tanışmadıysanız, paniğe kapılmayın! En yakın kitapçıya gidip arkasında, sağ alt köşede dostça "Paniğe Kapılmayın" yazan kitabı alın ve tabii, dışarı çıkmadan önce havlunuzu yanınıza almayı unutmayın ^_^

    27. What to say about the bible of mankind? This is the best, the greatest, the uber, the wonder, the rainbow, the sun, moon, satellite, planets, stars, universe. This is 42!!!!I have read these five books of the triology seven or eight times, and will read it at least once a year for the rest of my life!If you haven't read it yet, stop reading this and run for your life to get your own copy, or borrow it from a friend! Because believe me, your life now won't seem like life at all after you've read [...]
