The Lovereading4Kids comment
3rd in the series and the first one that was written as a book as opposed to being adapted from the radio scripts. Zaphod, Trillian, Ford, Arthur and the hilariously named Slartibartfast reunite, at Lords Cricket ground (don’t ask) to save the universe.
Even 30 years on this is still a fresh and funny series of stories, whether you read them or listen to the original BBC radio shows. The anarchic, or ‘random’ to use modern parlance, plot, place settings and characters makes them more appealing than a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster!

Life, the Universe and Everything by Douglas Adams
This title celebrates the thirty years of comic genius of Douglas Adams. After a series of events which have involved Arthur Dent being alternately blown up and insulted in more bizarre regions of the Galaxy that he has ever dreamt existed, he finds himself stranded on Prehistoric Earth. Luckily an amazing rescue by Ford Prefect and a time eddy, cleverly disguised as a sofa, lands them in the middle of Lords two days before the world is due to end. It's just not cricket. This is volume three in the trilogy of five.
