Sci-Fi Insanity.

The complete 5 book interstellar journey of Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox and Trillian McMillan aboard the Heart of Gold spaceship, as they travel through the absurd infinity of space and time in their improbable adventures to solve de Ultimate Question to life, the

Just as funny as advertised, but I made the mistake of reading the collection of all five novels, and - what's more - trying to read them all in one go.

I had heard a lot about this cult series and finally got to read it – thanks to

I definitely am overdue to reread this comic scifi classic! I remember laughing all the time at the quirky universe that Adams conjured up, but admit to have forgotten many of the details...on my 2018 TBR!
