Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: The Trilogy of Five (Kindle Edition)The H.H.G is the book which anticipated the Kindle , and I cannot think of a work more suited to read on it .
Arthur: What is it?
Ford Prefect: It's a sort of electronic book , it'll tell you everything you want to know , that's it's job.
Arthur : I like the cover "Don't Panic" , that's the first helpful or intelligible thing anyone has said to me all day.
Ford : That's why it sells so well . Here , press this button , and the screen will give you the index ...
I'm a great fan of Douglas Adams , and the first volume , The Hitch Hiker's Guide , is quite possibly my favourite book of all time : witty , inventive and with a central core of philosophy , it has a quote for every occasion . I'd decided that having the saga in CD form (the radio series) cassette tape (talking book & the LP ) as well as the script book and the paperbacks , I could not justify buying the whole thing all over again on Kindle .
But I can't resist it at this bargain price .
All I want now is a Kindle cover with the words "dont panic" in large friendly letters ...

Great analogy about the electronic book...A device such as the Kindle would have been unimaginable fantasy when I first read the paperback all those years ago. I'm ordering the e-book now, and can't wait to re-discover the Great D.A.'s genious. As your first commenter said - bring on the "Don't Panic" Kindle cover... Immediate best seller :-)
