Highly recommended for those that don't get it.
Nothing compares, truly unique.
Marvin will make you laugh.
This book defined my development into an adult.
For those of you that don't get it when your friends make jokes about H2G2, this is an easy way to get the idea. I warn you that once you get a taste you will be hooked. It is a tragedy that Adams didn't live to see the iPad. If Steve Jobs had hired Adams to design the iPad we would have the perfect device.
Humor, witty-ness, well dramatised, Good story, moves right along. Imaginative. Very upbeat, great pace, read clearly.
hilarious and witty
I want more of this!
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
Maybe I shouldn't have first read this book in my 40s. Maybe it would have made more sense or had more meaning had I read it in middle school, when I had friends who raved about it. This just didn't do it for me. Moving on.
The dramatization was distracting and made it harder to follow the story. The audio mix was awkward and made listening in the car very difficult as some characters spoke from one side of the car, some from the other. With road noise, and even with a decent, though not amazing, stereo system, you still need narration out of all speakers to truly hear it very well.
This has the worst audio I've ever heard on audible. Although the sound quality was bad and the constantly changing volume level was the worst thing. I couldn't even finish the first chapter. luckily I only paid $2 for the book.
The audio quality is no good. It's a shame, but the date does show. Also, the last hour or so is not part of the story, but the story of how the recording came to be.
a gripping intelligent adventure that makes no apologies for its science theory based high level indulgences. thank you Douglas for engaging me whole-y
