This was definitely a fun and entertaining book. It was intelligently written, with plenty of wit. I found myself laughing often during this listen, and at the same time it kept my interest.
Some books just become your best friend. I have a few best friends and I continue to read them over and over again.
I love this book! In fact, I make sure that this book is always downloaded on my phone just in case I don't have anything to listen to. I have listened to this book twice and I still found myself laughing out loud. Douglas Adams keeps you entertained and the performance is outstanding. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained!
I've always heard about this book and I finally got to listen to it and loved it! Stephen Fry did a great job with the narration.
It was cooky, light hearted, and brilliant.
I can't think of any one moment that was the most memorable. It was very entertaining, because it was different!
This is my first by Stephen Fry, but he was brilliant!
I laughed many, many times through this book.
I loved this book it was deliciously quirky, delectably exotic, & damned funny!
Stephen Fry delivers an absolutely phenomenal narration to what is one of the best books ever written. I've tried to listen to the sequels, but they are just not the same without the brilliant narration by Fry. Honestly, I think that the performance by Fry makes this audiobook the best way to experience Douglas Adams' one of a kind story.
This book is pure fun. Come discover the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. It is here, right in this book!
A million more times. Love this book!
all the oddball stuff kept me laughing
Suggest to any reader/listener. I own a paper, a digital, and a audible version of this book
This is just how I always hear it in my head. Wait is that a bad thing that there are British voices in my head.
Ford, no Zaphod, wait no, Ford, no Zaphod. Oh to heck with it just listen to the book.
Please no more movies - this can't be adequately captured on film.
Now they need to get Stephen Fry to narrate the rest of the series.
It took a bit to get into the story for me personally. But the narrator is great from the get go. Once I got into the story, then the story and the narrator kept me engaged.
I listened to each chapter at least twice before proceeding. There is so much going on.
He is a master narrator. obvious complete focus and respect for the material.
The best use of Science Fiction. Maximum enjoyment - humor and social commentary, the stupidity, cupidity and ridiculous of human endeavor should never not be exploited for a laugh.
I was not familiar with this phenomenon until downloading the audio book. It must be the strangest book I have ever been privy to. It is witty and hilarious at times and downright strange at other times. I think it is about the right length because it gets weirder and weirder as it goes on and I'm not sure I could take the insanity if it were much longer.
