Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Seconds before Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.
   Together, this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by galaxyful of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two-headed, three armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian (formerly Tricia McMillan), Zaphod's girlfriend, whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; and Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he's bought over the years.
It was funny, but extremly confusing. I really liked it, but I think I wouldv'e enjoyed it more if I knew more of what the hell was going on. Also, when in that entire book were pens mentioned? Maybe it did mention it and I just forgot since it took me so long to read it. I need to watch the movie now.
