25. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
This is one of the books that I knew I had to read. Regardless of whether I fully complete this list, this is a book I knew was a must-read. And I'm glad I read it.
The book is absurd beyond belief. It's far-fetched, over the top, and downright silly but it's also an awful lot of fun. I've heard that you either love Douglas Adams, or hate him and after this book I fall into the first category.
Sci-Fi is not a genre I'm a fan of, but this is such a cliche that it comes full circle and you really enjoy it.
If British humour is your thing, and you find Python hilarious then pick it up. I want to keep reading the 'trilogy'.
