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!
From cricket at Lords to the planet Cricket, this book offers that wild, but also whimsical ride that only Douglas Adams was able to deliver. The delivery is superb, and an absolute pleasure to listen to.
