cover of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

A quick read. Read aloud with Kent and Paul on the way to our mid-year apprentice retreat. Enjoyed that, but finished on my own. Very sarcastic humor. Lots of quiet, hilarious humor if you are looking for it. Sardonic might be a good word. The Earth is destroyed, and Arthur Dent is the only human saved. His friend, Ford Prefect, who is a hitchhiker in space, saves him, and they go on adventures through space. Remembering to take their towels. Hearing about other travelers and legends and myths and some that are still true. Also have the Heart of Gold spaceship which travels really fast -- using the improbability drive, traveling through all points in the universe to get to their final destination.
