The Restaurant At The End Of The UniverseBook - 1980
Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons? Time for a cup of tea! Join the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his uncommon comrades in arms in their desperate search for a place to eat, as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability.
Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who's gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food speaks for itself (literally).
"What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams's sardonically silly eyes."-- Detroit Free Press

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

SummaryAdd a Summary
Picking up from the end of the first book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Arthur, Marvin, Ford, Trillian, and Zaphod are aboard the Heart of Gold heading for the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. However, almost immediately they find themselves under attack by Captain Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Hyperspace Planning Council (yes, the same one that oversaw the demolition of Earth) and his Vogon crew. Ford, Trillian, and Zaphod try to fly the Heart of Gold away from the Vogon ship, but their ship's computer is jammed because Arthur asked the Nutri-Matic machine for a cup of tea (long story). Facing imminent doom, the crew performs a séance and calls Zaphod’s great-grandfather. Zaphod’s great-grandfather miraculously saves them from death at the hands of Vogons, but teleports Zaphod to find a “Zarniwoop” and the ruler of the Universe. From there things only get crazier. Will anyone be able to find the question to the ultimate answer (42)?
