simply put, the most outlandish situations one can imagine given within context of the most weird story I have ever read, the characters were what made me interested and the setting made me stay, what a trip!
the similitude about how everything just comes into touch with normal everyday life but just weird enough to believe it is actually not from this planet.
his acting is incredible, loved his interpretation of the characters, and his way of giving life to all things inside the book one could just wait for the punch line to roll out of his lips waiting to fall on your back laughing.
yes, laughter, so much laughter, the situations, the characters, it all just comes into laughter.
If only the narration for the next book was as good as this one perhaps I could have enjoyed it more.
also, the ending falls flat of everything else that happened... I can only imagine the series to be just as good, but after reading book 2, I think he should have just ended the series here and now
Stephen Fry is a master. His reading is superb and brings the text out with such character and mastery.
Too many to choose from!
This isn't a long listen especially at 1.5x speed - took me a couple commutes but once I started I couldn't stop.
i would, because it has many quotable passages that one could memorise.
its is a wonderful work filled with lots of strange things and often unnecessarily explained details but in the full awareness that it is explaining something not that impotent which gives it an very unique dynamic.
I knew of the title of this book but had never been inspired to pick it up. I'm not sure what prompted my to add it to my wishlist but I'm glad I did. I loved to sense of humor of the author and though the performance was brilliant.
I would think that anyone who enjoys the dry, silly humor associated with Monty Python would enjoy this book.
I loved Stephen Fry's performance. The character voices enhanced the story and he has an excellent style for the type of humor.
Yes, over and over again. I've listened to this book 5 or 6 times already!
Hard to tell, there are so many great moments.. I do love all the little factoids from the guide that seemingly does not have anything to do with the story at all.
Everything! He is a delight to listen to, and he brings the characters to life!
Don't panic, obviously. I did actually see the film before I listened to the book, and even though the book is far, far better, I enjoyed both.
This is a no-brainer if you like sci-fi. A blast from start to end.
Amazingly hilarious and witty writing met with Stephen Fry's comedic genius!
I'm not sure I can.

Resistance is Useless!
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!
