Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
What can I say? A classic all around. Been in my top 10 books for many years. The original radio broadcasts here are great also. A must.
This is a great series. It's so much fun to hear the book/radio scripts being played. I want my electric thumb so I can come along to.
Douglas Adams is/ was a genius, his imagination is like no other. Awesome book,I was thrilled to see it for the kindle fire .So very much worth the
Addicted to audiobooks. Can't go a day without it. Makes housekeeping,cooking and hobbyist more interesting.

is a classic that's for sure. My only complaint is when you combine a radio programs episodes, you should make a little cohesive. In other words use the theme music to a minimum please because it got annoying really fast. Other than that it is the same wonderful Adams creation.
I absolutely love this series. I had a copy of this back when it was on a tape cassette. My only disappointment is that it is EXACTLY as I remember the sound quality on the tape cassette. However, the audio mastering could and should be overlooked, because this series is fantastic and the audio mastering drastically improves with the 3rd installment. Hang in there, it's worth it.
Douglas Adams has become immortal with this telling of a man's journey through existence unwittingly searching for truth. Narration done effectively in language that commands attention for a ride into reality.
All the memories of youth spent listening to the radio show on cassette. Plus interviews with Adams and the cast.
The interviews were new to me and brought a new richness to the beloved classic.
This collects the first 6 of the 12 episodes found in the US cassette edition. It then adds a set of interviews. Great addition to the collection, and none of the audio problems found on well loved cassettes.
We had an old copy of this on cassette, after hearing it on the radio. The cassettes died and we've ordered other copies, but none are as good as the original.
