September’s convalescent read-along book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Chosen because it’s a comic classic that travels through space and time, it’s sure to take you out of yourself and on a crazy ride!
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 express route, and Arthur’s best friend has just announced that he’s an alien. At this moment, they’re hurtling through space with nothing but their towels and a book inscribed in large, friendly letters: DON’T PANIC.
The book is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the weekend has only just begun . . .
Douglas Adams’s mega-selling pop-culture classic sends logic into orbit, plays havoc with physics and twists time, but most importantly it’s very, very funny.
