Summary, etc.:
Arthur Dent never could get the hang of Thursdays. On this particular Thursday, his house is set to be demolished and his friend Ford Prefect turns out to be from a star named Betelgeuse (and not, after all, from Guildford). Furthermore, it turns out that the whole Earth is scheduled for demolition by the Vogons to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. The irony of the situation is almost lost on Arthur as he and Ford hitch an intergalactic ride away from oblivion.
