  • Description
    DON'T PANIC: collected together in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Omnibus are the five titles that comprise Douglas Adams' wildly popular and wholly remarkable comedy science fiction series. This one volume paperback edition comes complete with an unhelpful introduction from the author, a bonus short story, Young Zaphod Plays It Safe, and a special undeleted scene . . . The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be rather a lot to cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. The Galaxy may offer a mind-boggling variety of ways to be blown up and/or insulted, but it's very hard to get a cup of tea. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe When all questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - 'Where shall we have dinner?' The Restaurant at the End of the Universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about. Life, the Universe and Everything Following a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. An eddy in the space-time continuum lands him, Ford Prefect, and their flying sofa in the middle of the cricket ground at Lord's, just two days before the world is due to be destroyed by the Vogons. Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It's not an easy thing to do, and Arthur Dent thinks he's the only human who's been able to master this nifty little trick - until he meets Fenchurch, the woman of his dreams. Fenchurch once realized how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately, she's forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God's Final Message to His Creation, they go in search of it. And, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it . . . Mostly Harmless Arthur Dent has settled down on the small planet Lamuella and has embraced his role as a Sandwich Maker. However, his plans for a quiet life are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. There's nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - he's encountered most of them before. This publishing phenomenon began as a radio drama and now exists in a number of wildly contradictory versions (including a TV series, a movie and a towel) - this version, produced by Douglas Adams' original publisher, is, at least, definitively inaccurate.

    Not the best buy

    This is the single greatest series ever to be put on paper. Period. You shall never be the same again once you're done with these books.

    But. This is the wrong buy. 5 books for 900? That's retarded. Flipkart is also offering the first 4 book in one volume, for 330. Buy that, confirm that you like the series, then go ahead and buy the last book, Mostly Harmless, for under 300. Save lots of money. Spend it on a nice Wodehouse.

    Possbily the funniest, cleverest book ever written in human history.

    If you haven't read or heard of the Hitchhikers series, you're seriously missing out.

    The late Douglas Adams' amazing writing style cannot be compared, really, to anyone. So it's hard to explain. Clever, cheeky, absurd, irreverent, infinitely quotable, and light-hearted. And it doesn't get any less fresh and hilarious and amazing, no matter how many times you re-read it. Scientists and doctors claim that depression is difficult to treat and possibly incurable; I wager that they have not yet...

    Something you should read before you die.

    I find this book to be one of the most under-rated books. People talk about reading Tolkein, JD Salinger and Ayn Rand, etc, Douglas Adams is up there, his books are so enjoyable to read.
    The five part trilogy by Douglas Adams is fantastic. A great story, with insanely creative concepts and not to mention hilarious in such a wonderful, subtle manner. I recommend this series to anyone, that is including the sixth book written by Eoin Colfer (another amazing writer). It's certainly one of those...

    Witty, cheerful, brilliant!

    I am not sure how many times I have read this series and every single time I find myself just struggling to put this down to sleep at 6am in the morning or to have dinner before the closest dhaba shuts down.

    Clever, witty, hilarious and brilliantly written. Perfect for all you galactic travelers out there. Let the words get you out of the world as we know it and you will soon find yourself meeting the most remarkable creatures in the most far stretched regions of the universe. You thought h...

    Even if you don't know about Hitchhiker series, go for it. You'll find yourself rolling on the floor laughing!

    Calling Douglas Adams a genius would be undermining him. He was Godly. The brilliant English humor, the characters, his speedy imagination... oh man!
    And this book is the best as it has all the books in the Hitchhiker series in one. I bought the first volume for 299 from Crossword. But here we have all of them fro this awesome price! You may even go for the paperback version which is for just Rs. 350! But i recommend this hard-bound one. Gives the feeling of a classic that this is!

    The Best Science Fiction Series In History

    When I first saw this product it was priced at 799. Although I have read the whole series in my school library but i wanted it to keep it in my collection.And this was THE perfect edition as it contained all the five books of the series and also included one short which was written by a friend of Douglas Adams after he passed away.But 799 was too much for me and buying each book of the series separately would cost me above 1200.But luckily I ordered this book at a discounted price of 456! An...

    Value-for-money

    These gloves fit like a... like a glove? They're comfortable and looking at stitching a bit closely you can tell it's probably gonna last quite some time. The fabric is of good quality too.

    Q:how is the paper quality?Printing is black&white or color? (please mention the paper quality and post some photos of the pages)
    A:Paper quality is okay, and is just like any other novel. Printing is black and white, why would you want colored print when there is no color, only text inside. No option of attaching photos here.
