The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Reading this book was very enjoyable and fun.... also a little bit like what having a temperature well in the hundreds while reading a science fiction comic book while drunk must be like. There is so much to like about this story. OMG the originality !!! Every so often you are just blown away by the hilarious sentences the author sneaks in there. An escapist read at its finest ! I can't wait to read book 2 in the series!
