Arthur Dent is an absolutely middle-of-the-road, couldn't-pick-him-out-of-a-line-up ordinary guy. That is, until he finds out his best friend is an alien, the Earth is about to blow up and that the question of life, the universe and everything might exist only in his brain. This raucous sci-fi adventure is now a classic, and for good reason. I have re-read it multiple times, and it remains hilarious, absurd and insightful each time. Douglas Adams truly was a comedic genius.
