When all the questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains: Where shall we have dinner? The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is the obvious answer, as it provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once, there is no morning after to worry about ...The Restaurant at the End of the Universe was the first sequel to the cult bestseller The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, continuing the crazy adventures of Arthur Dent, Marvin the Paranoid Android, Zaphod Beeblebrox and, of course, the Vogons.

"DOUGLAS ADAMS IS A TERRIFIC SATIRIST."
--The Washington Post Book World
Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability--and desperately in search of a place to eat.
Among Arthur's motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor 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 who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself.
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!
"What's such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams' sardonically silly eyes."
--Detroit Free Press
