I am married to the wonderful and amazing woman pictured here. I listen to books to make me a better husband, father and person.
can't believe I didn't read this when I was younger...when I read the Guide. Great stuff!
Okay, I was like you. Yep, looking at these reviews and trying to decide whether I should get it, knowing that the narrator was different. Keep in mind that these were recorded quite a long time ago. Yes, I didn't really enjoy Zaphods voice. And some of the other characters too. But, I still enjoyed it. The story itself is fantastic. The voices should have been replicated off the movie "hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy" because that is /was their best voices. I recomend it. ;)
yes, but with a warning
yes and no. The voices the narrator used didn't seam to fit some of the charactors. It got pretty distracting.
The funniest was Zaphod. Who knew he had a Jersey accent? I love these books and listening to Martin Freeman read them was highly enjoyable.
I was upset at first to see that Stephen Fry did not narrate any more books after the first, but decided I must carry on with the story.
Martin Freeman did an amazing job with this narration, and the added voice modulations on the ethereal and strange creatures were perfect.
Like my review of Stephen Fry with the first book, I gave this audiobook 5 stars as well as the narration, but the overall 4 stars since I again had the problem with the chapters with audible. Some sections had multiple chapters in one so it was difficult to navigate through the book when going back.
Anyway, still loved it. About to buy book 3!
