I'm a software developer.
The plot and events are much tighter than previous books, and it still has that absurd humor to it. Martin Freeman does an amazing job.
While this is worth a listen, be prepared for a slightly disappointing ending, and possibly to stop the series after this installment.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is full of satire and play on words. It will expand your mind and give you a different view on the word; not to mention the enormous amount of comedy that will be sure to put a smile on your face. I would recommend any of these books to someone looking for a good read/listen.
Martin Freeman is spectacular, Douglas Adams is incredible - I'm starting it all over again, just because I can!
If you've made it as far as book three, no doubt you're a fan of Douglas Adams's delightful world, characters, and humor. If that is the case, you will love this installment as well. The movement of the plot and the interaction between the characters feels just a tad more sluggish here than in the first two installments, but the lasting impression is of the same wacky brilliance that we've come to know and love.
Life, the Universe, and Everything makes you think so outlandishly about the universe that you'll be inclined to just hang the sense of it and keep yourself busy. This is a worthy installment in a genius series, but a bit shy of being the best.
On the audiobook production: Freeman continues to impress with his range of character voices. He's a star.
This book is the third of the series and is not what I wanted it to be. I have only read up to this one, but so far it is the least exciting to me. It is not nearly as silly as the first two, and the silliness is exactly what I like about them. It also has an unsatisfying resolution. I am hoping for something better from the next one.
Weirdly wonderful. An unfathomable series of ridiculous and improbable adventures. Just loved it. I was quite curious how Adams was going to pick up the story again after leaving folks scattered around in both space and time, but come back together they did. And fantastically saved the universe. I particularly enjoyed the passages on flying. Looking forward to another installment of zany fun.
Martin Freeman's narration was fantastic, so many unique and incredible voices!
