very low on the list
If Martin Freeman had not pulled so many "funny" voices for the characters. I love Freeman as an actor, but his hammy performance and awful character voices buried the humor in this reading. His Max Quadropleen is done in a god-awful "TV evangelist" voice of the type we thought was funny 35 years ago when Steve Martin and Robin Williams were doing it to death. His Zaphod Beeblebrox is performed in an execrable "New York" accent, event though his speech is peppered with British colloquialisms. Almost unlistenable. I don't know if I will finish it. I should have gotten the dramatized version with the original cast. The books are somewhat padded, anyway.
a boy from norway 23 years old. listen to audiobooks beacause i i hate reading, but i love the storys that are written down.
not a story for me... it looks like the author just made up a story on the go. almost like he was in inprowe class.
you can notice it in the dialogs, the pointless talking. but i listen trough it all since i enjoyed the first book so much
maybe someone else liked it tough. isn't the worst i have heard
I really enjoyed the humor of this book. I found my self joking about it days later, when I finally got some of the jokes! There is more to this story than just the random things that happen. My least favorite part, is how the story jumps around a bit too much, but that's not a real big deal.
I've heard a lot of people complaining about the narration. It is GREAT! It is also DIFFERENT from the first book. I think that's what everyone had a hard time with. SO...what I did was listen to a different book after listening to Hitchhikers Guide, and I had forgotten some of the accents in the first book. It helped me quite a bit adjust to Zafod's new voice.
Listen to Hitchhiker's First, then switch gears, listen to a completely different book...then come back for book two. You will enjoy the new narrator this way.
The story is great. I love Martin Freeman in the movie but his voices made me feel like Marvin, sad. I listened and will continue to listen to the rest of the books read by him in the series and be disappointed if they are all like this one.
The part where they do the thing at the place.
Only if well reviewed, or I have to because it's the other HHGTG books.
