The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Truly, the most memorable characters in this book are the ones in Disaster Area.
Just ignore the inane ramblings of the most important person in the universe, Mr. Beeblebrox, the man who says What all the time, or the brilliant but somewhat easygoing Trillian, or Froody Ford. They're just bit players. Indeed, the character that chews cud is rather more intelligent than the grand majority of those B-Cast characters sent to crash on that backwater planet with the official main characters.
Didn't you know? Between Disaster Area and the robot with the brain the size of a planet are the ULTIMATE main characters.
And now that we've met the meat... welcome to the best show in the universe served up with a huge side dish of pokes at God (or some philosophical backwater person who claims to be the leader of said Universe), the Universe, and Everything.
Anyone want to play a game of scrabble?
