Although it is a long read this series of all five of the series is well worth the read! The galaxy was fun to explore with Arthur, Ford, Zephod, Trillian, and Marvin. From an author who had no desire to in fact be an author he created a world that seems to encompass the desires everyone has that the failures of humanity is not all there is. Although the last book within "Mostly Harmless" could have been better it leaves your imagination to fill in the blanks of what could have been.

Containing all 5 original Hitchhiker's Guide books, A Trilogy in Five Parts is definitely worth getting to read though the entire series at once. (Or just the first 4 - a lot of people will tell you that Mostly Harmless is disappointing)
