This is a review of the product, rather than the books themselves. This is all five of the "trilogy in five parts"; Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers 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 and Mostly Harmless. This is essential for any avid reader, and at this price (currently £4.50) it is an absolute steal.

This is the five book trilogy that has never been surpassed. The first book ever to make me laugh out loud and in public - VERY embarrassing. But there is so much more to THHGTTG than words and reviews. It's a way of observing the world around us and our place within it; it's a running commentary on politics and religion and of mattrasses and biros.

Should you ever be planning to become marrooned on a desert island, a copy of THHGTTG (all 5 books mind) and a sturdy towel will not only keep your chin up for the duration but will likely see you trying to repeat the experience again next year.

Points out of 5? ... 42

There is a wisdom, a use of language and an attitude to humour and humanity that cannot be found anywhere but following that wonderful opening line, "Far out, at the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy, lies a small unregarded yellow sun."

The seller was great and my order was dispatched quickly. Anyway, enough about that. The books, well, what can I say. If you ever think you need cheering up or need a bloody good chuckle then this set of books is a realy must. From the outset the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is incredible. Oh, and if you're after quotes for Facebook this is the perfect read! Just go buy it and enjoy.

Read these when I was younger, had to go back and give them a re-read. Whilst I certainly love the first three of the five. the last two are still great books. I'd certainly recommend this to any who wants a book with some sharp wit and banter

The pack contains the five novels in the series, all in excellent condition. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is eager to read the classics, or a hardcore fan who wants a box set of their own.

Good quality paperbacks though not the design stated in the picture they come with a box to store them in too. Definitely worth a read for those who have the imagination for it!

Ordered this for Christmas for my teenage son who is an avid reader. Good to get back to some traditional classics. Great value for money in one pack.

This is a classic - everybody should read it. I liked this book set because you get all the books in one go.
