Don’t Panic – Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy : Review

Posted on: February 11, 2010

This is the story of Arthur Dent and his alien friend Ford Perfect. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is the legend in the sci-fi category. The book is written by Douglas Adams. The book follows the adventures of Arthur Dent and his alien friend Ford Perfect in six parts. Originally Douglas Adams has written only 5 Novels, 6th “And Another Thing” Novel in this series is released recently which written by Eoin Colfer.

The book begins on Thursday morning when Arthur Dent goes to bathroom for shaving, he sees a yellow bulldozer in front of his, when go out and inquires about bulldozer, they tell him that, they came to demolish his house for building the by pass.

Arthur Dent’s friend Ford Perfect is an alien from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and also a research of the book Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Ford rescues Arthur Dent before the seconds of earth’s demolition. The rescued by the spaceship of Vogons.

This what Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy tells about VOGONS :

“Vogon Constructor Fleets. Here is what to do if you want to get a lift from a Vogon: forget it. They are one of the most unpleasant races in the Galaxy, not actually evil, but bad tempered, bureaucratic, ficious and callous. They wouldn’t even lift a anger to save their own grandmothers from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal without orders signed in triplicate,sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again,and finally buried in soft peat and recycled.The best way to get a drink out of a Vogon is to stick your finger down
his throat, and the best way to irritate him is to feed his grandmother to the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.On no account allow a Vogon to read poetry at you.”

Hitchhikers Guide To Galaxy

So they are thrown out by VOGON ship, and they dramatically picked up by another ship named ” Heart Of Gold “, there they meet President of Galaxy : Zaphod Beeblebrox, who is Ford’s semi-cousin and the Galactic President. They visit the legendary planet Magrathea, where Aurthur meets person named Slartibartfast, who tells him about the history of Magrathea : Once the people of Magrathea fed up with question like ” Who they are “, ” why the universe exists “, “who created the universe” etc, So they decided to build the Super Computer which can answer these question, super computer of size of small city. They built a Super Computer, named it ” Deep Thought ” .
Two Programmer asked the computer to give ” Ultimate Answer for Life,Universe and Everything”, computer tell them, it require 7 and Half million years. So after 7.5 M years computer reveals answer ” Ultimate Answer for Life,Universe and Everthing” is 42.

Deep Thought tells that another computer, more powerful than itself would be made and designed by it to calculate the question for the ultimate answer.

Then deep thought builds a computer, often mistaken for a planet because of its size and use of biological components as the operational parameters , was the Earth, and was destroyed by Vogons to make way for a hyperspatial express route, five minutes before the conclusion of its 10-million-year program for finding the question for ultimate answer 42.

So Magrathean thought that Arthur mind can reveal the answer, because his mind has the last clue and he is the only person survived minutes before Earth demolition and he is the Operational Parameter of Super Super Computer Earth.

Rest of the story follows how Arthur tries to find the answer for the question and also knows lots of things about universe with the help of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

I am sure , if you read one book, you are going to want to read all.

This novel must be read to be appreciated. Every characters in this novel are good:-

  1. Arthur Dent, who basically has no idea what is going on around him, just wondering why they destroyed the earth.
  2. Ford Prefect, Arthur’s friend from some where in the vicinity of Betelgeuse.
  3. Zaphod Beeblebrox Galactic persident who stole Heart Of Gold,He don’t know why he stole it, with his two heads, three arms.
  4. Trillian the lovely Earth girl who flies the Heart of Gold.

  6. Marvin a depressed robot.
  7. The irratating ships Computer.
  8. The Vogons, who doesn’t care who you are.

Overall, this is a book is highly entertaining and must read.

I give it : 5/5.
