Douglas Adams has left us with the treaure of his writings that are still unique and demonstrate his amazing imagination. He died before his time, but he left us a legacy that will bring enjoyment to ongoing generations. If you remember that in the beginning of the series Arthur Dent learned how to travel off the Earth only seconds before it was destroyed by the Vogons who were clearing the way for an Intergalactic Bypass. In this volume, we meet a group of very unhappy space travellers who are just plain tired of the night sky. They live on a planet called KeiKit and the population of this planet are all robots. Ford Prefect, Arthur, Zaphod Beeblebrox and his female companion Trillian, are traveling in a ship powered by the fabulous Improbability Drive. Trillian is brillant and lovely. Zaphod, you may recall, has two heads which gave the producers about this odd group a lot of trouble recreating them for the movies. Anyway, its up this unlikely group of human and non-human beings to save the Universe, and this tale is just another great episode from the Hitchhiker's Guide saga with hillarious sidebars for us to enjoy.
