THE HITCHHIKERS GUIDE TO THE GALAXY - Douglas Adams
Thirty Five years after it was published I have finally got around to reading this very funny book. I am not a science fiction fan but anyone who can read will laugh out loud at this.
Arthur Dent and his alien friend Ford Prefect just manage to escape Earth prior to its destruction and have many adventure travelling through space.
One of the highlights for myself was at the beginning of the book with Arthur and then Ford dealing with the sad wee man from the Council. Its one of the funniest and most scathing indictments of petty officialdom you'll read anywhere.
Just a lovely book. Adams was a one man Monty Python team, sheer genius.
