One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldn’t be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending to be outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he didn’t actually understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid. He was renowned for being amazingly clever and quite clearly so-but not all the time, which obviously worried him, hence the act. He preferred people to be puzzled rather than contemptuous. This above all appeared to Trillian to be genuinely stupid, but she could no longer be bothered to argue about it.” –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Thirty years of celebrating the comic genius of Douglas Adams… On 12 October 1979 the most remarkable book ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor (and Earth) was made available to humanity – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s an ordinary Thursday lunchtime for Arthur Dent until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly afterwards to make way for a new hyperspace bypass and his best friend has just announced that he’s an alien. At this moment, they’re hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and an innocuous-looking book inscribed with the big, friendly words: DON’T PANIC. The weekend has only just begun… Volume one in the trilogy of five –This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

‘Hey,’ he said, ‘what you do that for?’

Trillian was tapping her fingers on a screenful of figures.

‘I’ve just thought of something stupid,’ she said.

‘Yeah? Worth interrupting a news bulletin about me for?’

‘You hear enough about yourself as it is.’

‘I’m very insecure. We know that.’

‘Can we drop your ego for a moment? This is important.’

‘If there’s anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.’ Zaphod glared at her again, then laughed.

‘Listen,’ she said, ‘we picked up those couple of guys…’

‘What couple of guys?’

‘The couple of guys we picked up.’

‘Oh yeah,’ said Zaphod, ‘those couple of guys.’

‘We picked them up in sector ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha.’

‘Yeah?’ said Zaphod, and blinked.

Trillian said quietly, ‘Does this mean anything to you?’

‘Mmmm,’ said Zaphod, ‘ ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha. ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha?’

‘Well?’ said Trillian.

‘Er… What does Z mean?’ said Zaphod.

‘Which one?’

‘Any one.’

One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldn’t be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending to be outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he didn’t actually understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid.

Douglas Adams created all the various and contradictory manifestations of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: radio, novels, TV, computer game, stage adaptations, comic book and bath towel. He lectured and broadcast around the world and was a patron of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Save the Rhino International. Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge, UK and lived with his wife and daughter in Islington, London, before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where he died suddenly in 2001. –This text refers to the paperback edition. One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius — David WalliamsDazzlingly inventive — Caitlin MoranFizzing with ideas . . . Brilliant — Charlie BrookerReally entertaining and fun — John CleeseMuch funnier than anything John Cleese has written — Terry JonesI know for a fact that John Cleese hasn’t read it — Graham ChapmanWho is John Cleese? — Eric IdleReally entertaining and fun — Michael PalinI haven’t known many geniuses in my life. Some brilliantly smart people, but only a tiny handful would I class as geniuses. I would class Douglas, because he saw things differently, and he was capable of communicating the way he saw things, and once he explained things the way he saw them, it was almost impossible to see them the way you used to see them — Neil GaimanHitchhiker’s is packed with that unique energy, all barmy and bristling and bold. This book can be witty, iconoclastic, godless, savage, sweet, surreal, but above all, it dares to be silly. Fiercely, beautifully silly — Russell T. Davies, writer and producer of Doctor Who –This text refers to the paperback edition.
