Fry and Adams are the perfect pairing, two deep thinkers who courageously answer life's ultimate question with absurdity. If you're considering reading it-- do. You will find a treatise on humanity's predicament wrapped up in curious British humor, a delightfully sweet philosophical pill to swallow. This book will always remain near to my heart.
Hilarious story told in the most theatrical of manners. British humor at its absolute best!

I have watched the movie and heard multiple references to this for much of my life. I found it to be witty and humorous and easily entertaining. It truly is a fun way to hear how we really view experiences!
A great performance by the amazing Stephen Fry who fits perfectly with the strange universe of hitch hikers guide. My only complaint is the book ends very abruptly with no real clear ending. I suppose this is because it's the first in the series but a book should be able to stand on its own. Nevertheless the journey and characters is why I enjoyed this book.
Quite simply the best audiobook I've ever listened to. Stephen Fry's performance is sublime, and the original text is as ever one of the funniest things ever put to print.
