The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Science Fiction by Douglas Adams


Having survived, or so it seems, the exigencies of space travel at the mercy of that definitive volume, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Arthur Dent now seeks a decent cup of tea…Ford Prefect is after a good gin and tonic (or jynnan tonnyx, depending on what planet you've encountered)…and Zaphod Beeblebrox wants a good meal. So what do the intrepid travelers discover in this second volume installment of the epic quest? That while Reality is frequently inaccurate, the Hitchhiker's Guide is definitive. That the major problem of time travel is one of grammar, requiring at least 1,001 tense formations. That the history of every major Galactic civilization tends to pass through three phases, characterized by the questions: How can we eat? Why do we eat? And finally, Where shall we have lunch? What could be more enlightening than to travel with them? So bring your towel, settle down and listen, and, above all - don't panic!

Ein Klassiker! Muß man eigentlich kennen, wenngleich ich zugeben muß, daß der Humor mich jetzt weniger packt als damals (~1990), als ich die hitchhiker-Trilogie gelesen habe.
