If you enjoy British humor, which to be honest is mostly snark and sarcasm, then you will love the character of Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Forget the movie, it does a pretty poor job of capturing the wit and weary resignation of Arthur as he finds himself not only losing his house, but also his planet when some aliens decide Earth is in the way of their hyperspace bypass. This is just the beginning of his adventures and his comments and reactions to the absurdity of the situations that he finds himself in kept me laughing throughout the books. Douglas Adams had a definite knack for funny characters and it's not just Arthur who can make you laugh, but also the rest of the cast, especially Ford Prefect, Zaphod Beeblebrox and Marvin the Paranoid Android.
