The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy Chapters 1-12 Author-Douglas Adams
Arthur wakes up and finds a bulldozer in his front yard, he goes out and lies in the mud in front of his house so the foreman Mr. Prosser does knock his house down to build a bypass for a highway. One of Arthur’s friends, Ford Perfect comes by and persuades Arthur to go to the pub with him and for Mr. Prosser to lie in front of Arthur’s house for him. Ford Perfect buys 6 pints of beer for him and Arthur. Ford tells Arthur that the world is about to end. He explains that he’s and alien from a different planet. Giant Alien yellow things come out of the sky. Mr. Prosser knocks down Arthur’s house. The aliens in the giant yellow spaceships start talking to the people of earth and telling them they were going to blow up the earth. Zaphod Beeblebrox is introduced as the President of the Imperial galactic Government who is on a deserted planet about the present the new hearth of gold to 3 billion people watching on their tri-D TV’s. He plans on steeling the heart of gold because of the device that’s in it called a small gold box. At the end he throws a brain neutralizer to zap the 3 billion peoples’ minds. In chapter 5 Ford Perfect brings Arthur Dent on one of the huge yellow space ships while he is knocked out. He doesn’t know where he is so Ford gives him the book “The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy” to understand what is going on and that he is a hitch hiker on the vogon space ship. In chapter 6, Arthur uses a fish called a Babel fish to understand the vogon announcements being broadcasted. The vogons say that they are aware that hitch hikers are on board, and that the earth was just destroyed. In chapter 7 the vogon captain named Prostetnic vogon jeltz captures Ford and Arthur and keeps them as prisoners. The captain reads his horrible poetry to them, Ford and Arthur try to lie and say it was good, but the captain doesn’t believe it, so he throws them off the ship. Chapter 8 talks about how you can hold your breath for 30 seconds in space and maybe you will get rescued by a passing space shit. Arthur and Ford get rescued on their 29th second of their breath. In chapter 9 Ford and Arthur are rescued by Zaphod Beeblebox and his Heart of Gold Space ship. Chapter 10 talks about how the infinite improbability drive was invented by a student who was sweeping up a lab after a party. He got an award for it, and then got hung by jealous scientists. In chapter 11, Zaphod and his girlfriend on the stolen Heart of Gold spaceship lie and say that the ship picked the two hitchhikers up and not them. A robot was sent to the air lock where Ford and Arthur were to get them, and the robot tells them that the ship was stolen and the thief was Zaphod Beeblebrox. Chapter 12 talks about how Trillian was maybe picked up around the same area in space that Arthur and Ford were. I was most surprised by how Mr. Prosser saying he is going to knock down Arthur Dent’s house is similar to how the aliens came out of the sky and said “We are going to blow up the earth and there’s nothing you can do about it”. When I read these chapters I felt VERY intrigued by the book so far ,and that I was excited to get to the new chapter and read some more. I was also surprised when I read that Arthur and Ford jumped out of the vogon space ship and got rescued by Zaphod Beeblebrox and the stolen Heart of Gold space ship.
