Suppose a good friend calmly told you over a round of drinks that the world was about to end And suppose your friend went on to confess that he wasn't from around here at all, but rather from a small planet near Betelgeuse And what if the world really did come to an end, but instead of being blown away, you found yourself hitching a ride on a spaceship with your buddy as a travelling companion

It happens to Arthur Dent.

An ordinary guy from a small town in England, Arthur is one lucky sonofagun: his alien friend, Ford Prefect, is in fact a roving researcher for the universally bestselling Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ... and expert at seeing the cosmos on 30 Altairian dollars a day. Ford lives by the Guide's seminal bit of advice: Don't Panic. Which comes in handy when their first rideon the very same vessel that demolished Earth to make way for a hyperspacial freewayends disastrously they are booted out of an airlock. with 30 seconds of air in their lungs and the odd of being picked up by another ship 2276,709 to 1 against, the pair are scooped up by the only ship in the universe powered by the Infinite Improbability Drive.

But this and the idea that Bogart movies and McDonald's hamburgers now exist only in his mind is just the beginning of the weird things Arthur will have to get used to. For, on his travels, he'll encounter Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three-armed ex-President of the Galaxy Trillian, a sexy spacecadet he once tried to pick up at a cocktail party, now Zaphod's girlfriend Marvin, a chronically depressed robot and Slartibartfast, the award-winning engineer who built the Earth and travels in a spaceship disguised as a bistro.

Arthur's crazed wanderings will take him from the restaurant at the end of the Universe where the main dish of the day introduces itself and the floor show is doomsday, to the planet Krikkit locked in Slo-Time to punish its inhabitants for trying to end the Universe, to Earth huh wait wasn't it destroyed to the very offices of The Hitchhiker's Guide itself as he and his friends quest for the answer to the Question of Life, the Universe and Everything ... and search for a really good cup of tea.

Ready or not, Arthur Dent is in for one hell of a ride
