The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1) - Douglas Adams I am a part of a "book club" with two other friends of mine, called "The Macbook Book Club". Classically original, I know. Georgia's pick for the first book for us to read was none other than 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and let me say, I was pleasantly surprised.

I won't lie, I have procrastinated with the task of reading this book, pushing my time limit until it expired- right until the end of the month- quite a shame really because it is insanely short at only 178 pages!

I enjoyed this book- enough to read it in a day. I liked its satirical tone and just went along with the copious paragraphs I floundered to understand- I mean seriously! Who thrusts that many foreign words and ideas at a reader all at once! And what on earth kind of name is Zaphod- wait never mind I take it back... He isn't even from Earth.

The characters were intriguing, and I can understand why this is a classic for science fiction- despite the fact that I actually haven't read any at all... Science Fiction that is.

Definitely give this book a go if you're interested in Science Fiction or Fantasy- or even if you're just looking for an easy read that might change the way you perceive a genre.
