The first book is by far the best, a near perfect comedic classic. The rest are still good, but reading this whole omnibus at once was almost too much of the same. Probably would have been better off spacing them out a bit.

Classic scifi farce follows last man alive Arthur Dent and his hoopy adventures in space.

Adams is a funny funny man. His entire Hitchhikers Guide series should be read as one book since they all tie in so closely, anyway. Good old sci/fi nonsense! It's nice to know that the brits are funnier than that BBC crap that comes on PBS late on Saturday nights. Does anyone on the entire planet find "Are You Being Served" funny? Why do they think they can send their drivel to us? I don't think they're actually our allies anymore.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hilarious)-The Restaurant at the end of the Universe (Not as funny as the others. Too short but some cool ideas.)-Life, the Universe and Everything (Anything that makes you cry from laughter more than a couple times gets 5 stars!)-So long, and Thanks for All the Fish (4) (A dissapointment after _LU&E_. But still funny and zanny. Can't believe that Norman died.)

This was, by far, the most hilarious collection of writing I have EVER read. The way that it made no sense and too much sense at the same time was phenomenal, and the sinister and slapstick humor went together like cheese and ham. Adams' own original way of describing things is priceless ('Mr. L. Prosser was, as they say, only human. In other words he was a carbon-based bipedal life form descended from an ape. More specifically, he was forty, fat and shabby and worked for the local council.') I recommend this book to anyone who likes to totally lose themselves in a crazy adventure that will lead them into the most insane places of Douglas Adams' mind. Believe, after the first page, you'll be hooked.
