The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams is an amazing science fiction book for people who like comedy, action, and aliens. 

The story starts with Arthur, a young man who lives in England. He awakes one day, goes through his morning routine, then goes outside and lies in the dirt. Arthur is in the middle of a battle to keep construction workers from destroying his house to make an intersection.

Ford Perfect is an actor. Or so he pretends. Ford is actually an alien. And in a few minutes the Earth will be destroyed to make an intersection. IRONIC. Arthur and Ford have been friends for 5 years and would like to save Arthur from the repulsive, disgusting, revolting Vogan ship which is about to destroy the world.

Ford beams up himself and his poor unsuspecting friend to the Vogan ship. That’s when Arthur finds out Ford is a writer for the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The Vogans find the men on the ship and release them into mid space. Read more…
