Well, as I promised in the Never Ending Story Review, I finished the Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! Quite a provoking book, I must admit, with very interesting notions. It introduces new perspectives about everything we know, or at least thought we knew. It starts off strongly, captivating the reader’s mind, with lots of cynicism.
The story begins when Arthur Dent, an average human being, is in a bad mood after his house is demolished. He just can’t take it when his planet is going to be too! Ford, his friend, who is actually an alien journalist who came to research about Earth, rescues him minutes before the actual destruction of the Earth. From this event, many more follow, including the meeting of the President of the Universe, the finding of a mythical planet, and the discovery of the meaning of Earth’s creation, and so on.
This book deserves 9 stars. This is a humorous, exciting book. It is appropriate for children 10+, since the prospect of world demolition is never a happy one! Nevertheless, a must read.
