    An entertaining book, humorous light reading. Finished it in a couple of days. The book starts with Arthur Dent having breakfast at his home when he notices a work crew outside his house with bulldozers intending to demolish his house to make way for a highway bypass. Meanwhile a Vogon fleet is approaching Earth to demolish the planet to make way for an interstellar bypass, and Arthur and his friend Ford Prefect, who turns out to be an alien pretending to be a human, hitch a ride onto a Vogon ship just before the Earth is destroyed, and that's where their strange, absurd adventure begins.

    The 2005 film is a very faithful adaptation of the book.

    Back to Time Enough for Love by Heinlein.
