This funny spoof on sci-fi novels is one of the most classic humorous books ever written. Arthur Dent is a very normal man living in England, until one day his house is slated for demolition in order to build a highway bypass. Will Earth suffer a similar fate? Arthur travels throughout the whole galaxy on a quest to discover the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Anyone with a good sense of humor will like this book, although it is probably better suited towards 8th graders and older. Definitely not intended for children, but accessible and enjoyable to teens nonetheless.
