This beautifully illustrated edition of the New York Times bestselling classic celebrates the 42nd anniversary of the original publication—with all-new art by award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell.

SOON TO BE A HULU SERIES • "An astonishing comic writer."—Neil Gaiman

Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's
The Great American Read

It's an ordinary Thursday morning for Arthur Dent . . . until his house gets demolished. The Earth follows shortly after to make way for a new hyperspace express route, and Arthur's best friend has just announced that he's an alien.

After that, things get much, much worse.

With just a towel, a small yellow fish, and a book, Arthur has to navigate through a very hostile universe in the company of a gang of unreliable aliens. Luckily the fish is quite good at languages. And the book is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy . . . which helpfully has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large, friendly letters on its cover.

Douglas Adams's mega-selling pop-culture classic sends logic into orbit, plays havoc with both time and physics, offers up pithy commentary on such things as ballpoint pens, potted plants, and digital watches . . . and, most important, reveals the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Now, if you could only figure out the question. . . .

Surprisingly, I actually did not own an ebook version of this. I assumed I did, along with the paperback, the hardcover, the More than Complete compendium, the . . .

Of course I'd buy one with illustrations.

If this is read on a Kindle e-reader, everything will be in black and white?

The illustration appears to be 1 page per chapter. I thought this was a fully illustrated version. Oh well.

Yes. You may also read it on a color tablet/phone via the kindle app.

Same with me. Had to check my kindle. Been dragging the big book to kids karate classes. Wish it was the whole collection though since I'm halfway through Hitchhikers guide. Don't care about the pictures.

Oh, $9.99 for whole set. Nice. Have lots of slow ship credits from Christmas shopping.

I have had this for a while. There are no illustrations whatsoever in the Kindle version. Title is misleading.

I'm not paying $3 for an ebook, I'll get a free copy somewhere else.

Alternatives abound. library, used bookstore, borrow, torrent, etc. A lot of companies seem to think they are the only game in town when there is a lot of competition. I've been switching com companies and products a lot lately for that and saving money.

In this case, I already own multiple copies of it. Only if it was cheaper would I buy a copy for my kindle.
