Gifts for Book Lovers- The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy

Book count: 96

For: people who like sci-fi, comedies, teens

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by: Douglas Adams
fiction: sci-fi, comedy 309 pages (including bonus section on movie) 1979

First, I know that this is one of the books that I should have read back in high school. It was on my list, but even with reading half a dozen books in a week I didn't get to it. Second, I haven't seen the movie, but reading the section on it makes one appreciate what goes into making a book into a movie. Now about the book. It starts with the end of the earth and ends with a trip to a restaurant. It is the opposite storyline of most every book, and that is what makes it great. That, and fjords.
