The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (25th anniversary edition) is the most read book on my shelf and I’m not a fiction reader by any stretch of imagination. Adams has a way to present very complex and controversial topics with humor and sarcasm.

Adams explores many topics that are both of human and natural origins. There is no one particular primary theme as such, but the characters run into the most unexpected and absurd of situations. The author takes every opportunity possible to provoke the reader in some fashion while being superbly entertaining. He’s not shy of breaking the laws of physics rather he invents ways around their limitations. Devices such as the infinite improbability drive, invented a “smart ass” lab assistant, inverts the probability of one’s atoms spontaneously reappearing in some remote corner of the universe to offer instant teleportation to its users.
