"best radio broadcast in history!"
the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy has got to be one of the best radio series to have ever been written. this series is by far THE best reading of it..
this is my favorite story cos it's mad and abstract and so So clever in detail. unfortunately I only get the primary series for a 1credit on audible. the whole series is immense. I have read the book..... gonna go search for the book now. xxx
Disappointingly poor drama and even worse as comedy - your time would be better spent listening to another audiobook.
"sent me back to the 70's"
So long and thanks for all the fish :-)
great story, funny, thought provoking,
Remember listening to this as a child. Absolutely brilliant comedy. Britain at its comedic best !
"THHGTTG - The Tertiary Phase"
This was very reasonably priced on Audible. It's the fully-dramatised recording of the first radio series. It's an excellent listen, plus there are some added extras. Recommended!
"Put on your dressing gown and slippers and enjoy"
There’s nothing quite like wrapping up warm in a dressing gown, putting on my favourite slippers and sitting down with a nice hot cup of tea to listen to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I’ve lost count of the number of times I have listened to it over the years, probably more than 42, and it never gets old. Despite being 37 years old, the only thing about it that seems is dated is the expectation of change from a fiver for six pints of bitter. Douglas Adams was a genius.
"An Old Favourite"
The story is clever and funny. The story is such that, while you can listen at a purely easy entertainment level, there is also lots to leave you with a deeper, more thought provoking experience. Of course, you don't have to be a fan of quantum mechanics ... But it helps.
Not particularly but, then again, I was an interested party anyway.
This is a radio drama performance and probably does not, therefore, conform to this question.
Overall, this old favourite is given a new lease of life as a radio drama, re-release. The sound quality is okay and the performances themselves excellent. The book is good but this radio drama brings the characters to life.
"Wonderful Sci fi comedy."
Brings back so many happy memories. The actors really involve you in the story too.
"Classic audio drama"
This book /audio drama is a sci-fi cult classic. I've been a fan since it was originally released many moons ago. I still listen to it and love the subtle and sometimes not so subtle digs at politicians/ bureaucrats/ philosophers and not forgetting telephone sanitizers. Great colourful characters such as Marvin and Zaphod. If you love audio dramas I would rate this as one of the best.
