Lots of books lots of time. I love all things Star Wars and fantasy. The Bartimaeus trilogy (or quad) maybe the perfect series. Jonathan Stroud and Douglas Adams are my heroes.
A Pretty Airport
The coke machine and fresh sheets.
I love, love, love DNA. He is missed and worshiped in my home and heart.
Right up there with HHGTTG.
I read it back in high school (early 70's) and I remembered that I liked it.I'm really glad I got it in audiobook, it's a very fun story.
*SPOILERS* (in best River Song voice) Don't read further if you don't want your reading of the book colored by my idiotic opinions.
I love all his stuff, but I'm not sure why he kind of just slapped an ending on this one. The concept is brilliant, the writing top notch, and Adams wrote the sexiest female characters ever, but it kind of peters out with a whimper at the very, very end.
He was one seriously funny and creative guy.
The way he connected past and present seamlessly.
Yes. If you're a fan, seek out (rob a bank or steal a plane, if needed) and find his 4 CD version of Hitchiker's Guide. I love Stephen Fry, he is a brilliant and talented guy, and he does an excellent job of reading HHGTTG, but let's face it, there is nothing like having the author perform the characters. It's one of my favorite audiobooks of all time.
What's a god gotta do?
I have loved this audio book since I bought it on tape in 1988 (1989 maybe?). I purchased the CDs when I wore out the tape. Now I have the electronic version. I own two copies of the book.
It is crazy how much I love this story, and how much I love Adams's narration.
Do yourself a favor and listen to it. You will thank me.
It's Douglas Adams. If you are any reader who enjoys humorous fiction, and Brit-humor specifically, that should be all you really need to know. The author of Hitchhiker's Guide and coauthor of Good Omens does not disappoint in this story of Norse gods in modern London.
Douglas Adams has such a unique point of view, I wish there were more Dirk Gently tales.
I can't choose my favorite character, I love them all. Kate is a great protagonist and Toe Rag is the perfect little troll.
Nothing deep about this book, but very entertaining, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it more than once.
quirky, hilarious, screwball
"Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians" by Brandon Sanderson. Both are easy to read yet have a strong undercurrent of dry, deeply intelligent humor that made me laugh out loud.
A rich British intonation (always a bonus!) and a knowledge that the author is giving you his interpretation of his own story.
I love Douglas Adams' books but this is my personal favorite. Makes me laugh every time!
Yes and I'm sure I'll listen to it again and again. A really fun and enjoyable and surprising story.
No - I LOVE Adams as an author but as a reader he fell flat. I mean I don't need all the voices and accents done exactly but there were lots of moments where more infliction or even a pause for effect was needed.
Seriously this is a great story but imagine if it were read by either Stephen Fry or Alan Cumming?? Brilliant would be my one word review.
I would try Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy, but not another book in this series.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Disappointment. I just did not care about the characters and the story.
I guess the book will have it's fans, but I could not see any redeeming qualities in this book.
