The Earth has miraculously reappeared and, even more miraculously, Arthur Dent has found it. Returning to his cottage after ages, he falls in love with the girl of his dreams.

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 hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy secondary phase by Douglas Adams( Computer File )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 168 libraries worldwide
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian Poll. Stranded on Prehistoric Earth since the end of the first series, Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are once again trying to hitch their way off the planet. Zaphod Beeblebrox, meanwhile, finds his visit to the offices of the Guide rudely interrupted by Frogstar fighters, who further threaten to feed him to the Total Perspective Vortex. Could this prove fatal for his ego? With the three reunited, Arthur's preoccupation with tea soon gets them all into hot water before they fetch up on the planet Brontitall. There they find an enormous guano-encrusted statue of Arthur, and an indigenous species in something of a flap. As a woeful story of economic collapse at the hands (feet?) of the shoe shop industry unfolds, Arthur meets Lintilla -- for whom fate has in store a very unhappy marriage -- and Marvin gets to be a hero once again. All this culminates in a meeting with the Man in the Shack who apparently runs the Universe
