The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Free download » The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Chronicles the off beat and occasionally extrat. Douglas Adams bestselling book The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy published in 1979 is witty occasionally complex and accessible to the average reader The protagonist Arthur Dent is a befuddled Englishman and his friend Ford Prefect is a hitchhiking alien doing research for the latest edition of The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy The two narrowly escape destruction with the rest of planet Earth when Ford catches wind of its impending demolition by intergalactic civil servants and beams them to the nearest accessible spaceship the Vogon demolition fleet s mothership Inside they encounter murdered mattresses ruthless bureaucrats and torture by poetry They are soon ejected into space and twenty nine seconds later one second short of death the president of the universe and his girlfriend rescue them in their recently stolen state of the art spaceship The Heart of Gold In the remaining pages Adams prioritizes unpacking the absurdity of bureaucracy politics and religion over a strong plot and whimsically manipulates grammar and rhetoric to inspire in the reader a sense of his disregard for the possibility of any sense or meaning to life Entries peppered throughout the book from the real The Hitchhiker s Guide inform the reader of non essential historical cultural and always humorous tidbits about the universe and its inhabitants For example the popular drink the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster makes the drinker feel like their brain is being smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick Ch 2 Ford hopes to update the electronic guide with how one can see the wonders of the universe for 30 Altarian dollars a day but due to being stuck on Earth for 15 years his signature contribution remains his description of Earth as mostly harmless Arthur Dent is the butt of every joke than the hero of the story and simply plays the role of baffled human encountering the unknown The president Zaphod Beeblebrox who happens to be Ford s cousin has two heads three arms and the ego of a true politician He steals almost everyone s thunder but that s probably because while only six people know it he s succeeding phenomenally at his presidential mandate of distracting everyone s attention away from power instead of wielding it Zaphod is accompanied by his human girlfriend Trillian who acts as the token female character in the typically male dominated sci fi tale Smart and sexy she is mostly disregarded by her boyfriend while dutifully following him into every folly Marvin is a pet robot of sorts with a serious depression problem which proves to have tremendous utility On account of the Heart of Gold s Infinite Improbability Drive the serendipitous crew encounters and escapes from a series of unthinkable situations the most notable being the discovery of the fabled planet of Magrathea Believed to now be dead it supposedly designed and constructed luxury planets at the behest of ultra wealthy clients until closing up shop with the collapse of the intergalactic economy some ten million years ago At this point in the book a loosely coherent plot begins to emerge After narrowly evading the planet s automatic defense missiles the crew land the Heart of Gold on the surface and Zaphod leads the bunch on a hunt for the unfathomable riches he is certain must be hidden there somewhere Instead he comes to a shocking realization about the key to his wildly successful career of misconduct Arthur learns of the mysterious nature and fate of his late beloved Earth Trillian loses her two pet mice and Marvin unwittingly saves everyone s lives just by being himself Adams playfully goads the reader closer and closer into agreeing that The Universe is almost certainly being run by a bunch of maniacs Ch 31 by poking fun at bureaucracy and politics with amusing analogies Much like the local bureaucrat trying to tear down Arthur s house the Vogons respond to Earthlings protests before imminent destruction by stating All the planning charts and demolition orders have been displayed in your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for fifty of your Earth years Ch 3 Zaphod Beeblebrox is the posterchild for theatrical two faced politics His wild antics make him the most successful president in history and he possesses two heads and therefore two faces one of which is popular than the other Ch 4 Adams then picks apart religion and philosophy without being overtly insulting due to his use of their very own arguments A small but exceedingly sophisticated fish proves God s existence and is therefore the final and clinching proof of his nonexistence God promptly vanishes in a puff of logic because without faith I am nothing Ch 6 Philosophers protest the creation of a supercomputer they fear will put them out of a job if it is able to answer the uestions of the Universe thus they demand the total absence of solid facts Ch 25 Adams deft criticism of these topics threatens to elicit not much than a self deprecating chuckle from the very people he is poking fun at Absurd similes and outrageous statements infuse the writing style with charming humor while occasionally reminding the reader that reality can in fact be uite ridiculous For a few seconds Ford seemed to ignore him and stared fixedly into the sky like a rabbit trying to get run over by a car Ch 1 and The ships hung in the sky much the same way that bricks don t Ch 3 are clearly very foolish things to say yet confer upon the reader a precise picture of the given situation that Adams wants them to have In a similar vein a police ship commits suicide after hearing Marvin s depressing view of the universe Ch 34 letters of the alphabet can be friendly Ch 1 or unfriendly Ch 34 and the answer to life the universe and everything is simply the number 42 Ch 27 Adams makes clear to the reader exactly how seriously he takes his subject matter Poking fun at politics and religion and making ludicrous statements are the obvious of Adams tactics to discourage the reader from taking life or really anything very seriously Less obvious but eually effective is his manipulation of grammar and rhetoric By rendering the familiar structure of language malleable in his expert hands he reminds the reader at every turn that all is not as it seems He breaks commonly accepted rules of writing by blatantly using redundant vocabulary and pairing oxymoronic words Arthur wakes up blearily then gets up and wanders blearily around his room Ch 1 Ford Prefect is not conspicuously tall and his features are striking but not conspicuously handsome Ch 1 and Zaphod rides a thoroughly ridiculous form of transport but a thoroughly beautiful one Ch 4 The windows on Arthur s soon to be destroyed home are of a size and proportion which or less exactly failed to please the eye Ch 1 and there is something very slightly odd about Ford Prefect Ch 1 With these deviances from the norm and by slipping in a clever grammar joke here and there to boldly split infinitives that no man had split before Ch 15 Adams taunts the grammar police and then scoffs when their powerlessness and lack of creativity are exposed By deftly rendering malleable the familiar institution of language Adams bring home his deeper message that societal constructs are the mere product of a human desire to invent order out of chaos While Adams can boast a nimble sense of humor and a clever mind obvious plot holes emerge as the story progresses For example the Vogons dump Arthur and Ford millions of lightyears away from Earth but then Trillian and Zaphod pick them up in the same vector as Earth This could be due to the fact that Adams was a legendary procrastinator who would often leave manuscripts unfinished until the last minute His biographer MJ Simpson author of Hitchhiker A Biography of Douglas Adams says that Adams also had problems following the traditional structure of a story He shares that Adams was good at writing beginnings middles and endings but when he got to the middle he d thought of another good beginning and wanted to write that instead of the ending Adams habit of making things up as he went along is uncomfortably apparent to the reader who craves consistency and resolution especially from a book some say holds a place in the sci fi genre Therefore his book might accurately fall under the category of comic science fiction While he falls short of producing the next great science fiction series of our time Adams succeeds remarkably in demonstrating how a truly inuisitive mind works He breaks the rules of fiction writing but rather than being his downfall these bold deviations add to his appeal By weaving together intelligence humor and slapstick he reaches a broad audience without sacrificing his uniue voice and underlying message So much so that the reader is left almost certain that the chances of finding out what really is going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say hang sense of it and just keep yourself occupied Ch 30
