On the long, lost planet Magrathea, Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, and their space-traveling friends discover that the earth was really a giant organic computer that was working on finding the meaning of life. But 5 minutes before the program was done, the planet was destroyed. Ah, the irony! Douglas Adams' wildly funny, wickedly clever sci-fi novel is collected here as a three-installment, comic ebook series. So grab your towel, stick a babel fish in your ear, and get set to join Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian and Marvin the Paranoid Android on the ultimate adventure of several lifetimes.
