So Long and Thanks for All the Fish Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

This book is Arthur living on Earth and falling in love with the girl who knew THE QUESTION but now can't remember it. This is the worst book in the seris but still a good read and would leave many confused for MOSTLY HARMLESS if not read.
