Plot : Arthur dent randomly hitchhiked his way through galaxy in a space craft and dropped on planet earth, surprisingly only few months has passed on earth while he is hitchhiking in the universe for years. He take a lift in the car to find his house, in the car he meet man named Russell and his sister Fenchurch. Russel explains him that many people has seen Yellow Ships few months back, but authorities are saying it as a “hallucinations with the big yellow spaceships”.
When he come to his house, he finds a gift for him, a gray, fish bowl in which the “So Long and Thanks for All the Fish” words are inscribed. He also learns that all the dolphins from the earth have vanished just before the demolition of earth by Vogons.
Fenchurch (Fenny) and Arthur Dent head to Los Angeles, to find a man who know the reason behind the disappearance of the entire population of dolphins from the earth, from there they decide they want to see God’s final message to creation and goes in search of message.
1. Will the ever know the reason behind disappearance of the entire population of dolphins from the earth ?
2. Can they find God’s final message to creation.
This whole story is set on the earth, where as previous three books where take place in different palnets. This is book is about Arthur Dent and Girl which Douglas Adams introduced in first book’s first chapter Fenchurch. The book is bit slow but character development is excellent. In this book you won’t find Zappod and Trillian, but you find Ford and Marvin, Marvin is seven time older than universe now due to the previous events
Funniest part is God’s final message to creation, which written in letters of flame thirty feet high (may be tourist attraction).
Read it for Arthur, Read it for Fenchurch and there beautiful love story, read it for Marvin (This is the last time you will see him), and read it for God’s final message to creation.
I give it : 4.5/5.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
You can find The Hichhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy : Review here.
