Douglas Adams; for my own part, is comparable only to the authors of sci-fi and fantasy legend...made of the same caliber and displays the same countenance as authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Frank Herbert. The whole series is fantastic and to have it narrated by Stephen Fry makes this narrative far better acted than the Movie.
Horse trainer by day, super hero by night, book lover all the time.
Bring a towel...no thats theirs...Hilarious space adventure. That will work.
The characters are amazing. The range between the nervous Arthur, the adventurous Ford, the dim witted but loveable Zaphod, the resourceful Trillian, and (my favorite) Marvin the manically depressed robot.
Stephen Fry is amazing in almost everything he does and this is no exception.
This is a book I DID listen to all in one sitting
Be ready to get the next books in the series :)
I was hesitant to start listening to books, but I felt like Douglas Adams style and story telling would be a perfect starting point. And it was, the voice of Stephen fry matches so well with how I thought the story would sound.
If you're on the fence about this, don't be. I've listened to tons of audible books and Stephen Fry is the most perfectly suited narrator to a story I've listened to so far. It plays like Monty Python on tape. This was a very well spent credit.
I really enjoyed this book. It's crazy, interesting, creative, and fast moving. There is not a lot of time wasted on building up. Great style of writing.
There is something very spectacular about douglas adams writing. This story takes you fantastic ride through the galaxy. There's never a dull moment.
