Would rather read under a tree on a summer day, than work.
Hitchcock Hikers Guide to the Gallaxy
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.
The beginning of one of the best sifi stories ever told. A must read \listen if you would ever consider your self a nerd and want to alienate one's self from conversation with other mammals. The jokes are amazing and I wish Mr. Adams was alive today.
I actually purchased a second version of this audiobook because the narration in this one did injustice to the story. The alternative, read by Stephen Fry, is delightful.
First radio play / play I have been to follow. Good stuff. Did not realize that hitch hikers was originally a radio show. Which also means that non music non talk radio lasted far longer in England than USA. Great program!
