Thirty years of celebrating the comic genius of Douglas Adams... After a series of events which have involved Arthur Dent being alternately blown up and insulted in more bizarre regions of the Galaxy than he has ever dreamt existed, he finds himself stranded on Prehistoric Earth. Luckily an amazing rescue by Ford Prefect and a time eddy, cleverly disguised as a sofa, lands them in the middle of Lords two days before the world is due to end. It's just not cricket...

This book, the third in the Hitchhiker’s Guide series, has a storyline even more random than the first two.

Continuing off the ending of The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are still stranded in time on pre-historic Earth. Luckily, Ford notices disturbances in the “space-time” wash and they are able to travel forward in time to a cricket game by catching a ride on a Chesterfield sofa. At the game, white robots suddenly appear and steal the Ashes (the burnt remains of a cricket stump). Slartibartfast is also at the cricket game and whisks Arthur and Ford away on his ship. He explains that the robots are from Krikkit and they need to be stopped from finding more pieces of the Wicket Gate lest they open the Slo-Time Envelope and cause the destruction of the Universe. Can Arthur and Ford save the Universe as they know it? What other crazy things will happen?
