Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons? Time for a cup of tea! Join the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his uncommon comrades in arms in their desperate search for a place to eat, as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability. Among Arthur’s motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a long-time friend and expert contributer to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who’s gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food speaks for itself (literally). Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that The Hitchhiker’s Guide deleted the term “Future Perfect” from its pages, since it was discovered not to be!

Basically I have had about 10 hours sleep in total over the past four days, namely because I go to sleep and suddenly an hour later...
I didn't like it very much. Some parts are boring and meaningless (yes even for a meaningless story like this one), but still you can get a spark of joy in some places.
If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with a breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe? I think in the past, I've enjoyed The Restaurant at the End of the Universe more than this time, but I'm not sure why. Which is not to say that I didn...
Da ich die Teile zwei, drei und vier der 'Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis'-Reihe in einem Schwupps durchgelesen habe und an dieser Stelle nicht unbedingt alles auseinanderdröseln will und kann, was sich in meinem Kopf so angesammelt hat, mache ich an dieser Stelle einfach mal eine dreifach-Rezi, das ...
