One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. It's the final straw for Arthur Dent, who has already had his house bulldozed that morning. But for Arthur, that is only the beginning. In the seconds before global obliteration, Arthur is plucked from the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, and together the pair venture out across the galaxy on the craziest, strangest road trip of all time.
