Flipping through the many pages of books on audible, I was at a loss to use my credits. I went one page deeper before I was to give up when it hit me. Why not go back some years and listen to one of my favorite reads.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was a tremendous boon to my young reading fetish. It shaped many facets in my writing and taste for consumption. Now to listen to it was an eargasmic experience.
It could only have been better if Douglas Adams read it himself.
Steven fry really added a lot to Adam's classic comedic sci-fi adventure. Great voices, delivery, and pacing earned this audio book a permanent place in my library.
Douglas Adams is everything that is great about English humor. the world is a much darker place since we lost him. But thanks to Audible (and of course Stephen Fry & Martin Freeman ) his words will live on forever. If you have only read his works I insist that you hear it performed by Stephen and Martin. I promise you that you will enjoy it! Now... Where is my towel?
I thoroughly enjoyed The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. It is a very funny and enjoyable experience. Adventure stories with humor placed throughout are some of my favorite pieces of work and this one definately satisfied both for me. I expected a bit more since I've heard so much of this book as if it were the pinnacle of comedic storytelling but I enjoyed the book so much that it is just a small gripe for me. I recommend this book for Sci-fi and especially Comedy fans!
