And where else would you get a computer that produces an chemical analysis of a planet atmosphere that stated, "It's alright... but it smells a bit"?
If you have never read these books and are wondering if you should, wonder no more.....just buy them, enjoy them and tell everybody you love about them so that they can love them and keep the visions of the genius that Douglas was alive!
apart from that niggle if you haven't got a copy of these in your house somewhere you are living a life all the poorer for it!
I bought this as a paperback from a local newsagent when it first came out, based purely on the cover image. Those big words "Don't Panic!" and the colourful back drop just drew me in. I wasn't disappointed.
It appealed to my sense of humour, my love of sci-fi and the Englishness of Arthur Dent as a stereotype Brit. It hasn't lost its magic the way other books have over the years and I can re-read it without getting bored and putting it down because I've already read it a million times (slight exaggeration)
A must for anyone nostalgic for the 70s, sci-fi and a British sense of humour.
