A must have for all fans of the Hitchhikers series and also the perfect book for those who know nothing about them and would like to know (well, and actually reading the books helps with that) but this is a great book to dip in to and gives you a rundown on all the stories so far, goes some way to explaining some of the weird and wonderful concepts of the books and gives some interesting facts and stories about Douglas Adams himself.The perfect gift for any Hitchhiker fan.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
