I Like scifi-fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction genres. Liked Wot, Got, Pillars of Earth, Century trilogy. Last read: Maritan. luvd it
I read this book as a hiatus to my serious fictional reading. It was a good break. The characters and the story are very creative, no doubt, but it's not that comically funny or maybe it's me. It's definitely great for kids/teens to build their creative/imaginative minds.
I didn't feel there was any point to the book. There was no character to whom I could connect. The story was very disjointed.
Excellent performance. Fry's narration was good, i.e. distinct enunciation and good varied tonal qualities for varying characters.
Disappointment and frustration about my wasted time.
I just couldn't get into this story the way it was written and the narrator was hard to listen to. I couldn't force myself to finish the book.
I want my money back!
This rendition is delicious. If you have never read this book, listen to this audible book instead of reading it. It's absolutely wonderful.
This is the first book I downloaded for free thanks to Leo Laporte and TWIT. It was wonderfully read by Stephen Fry. The story was lite, funny and always interesting. I couldn't wait to turn it on again.
Douglas Adams is a comic genius! He puts random, weird and sometimes ridiculous things together to make an entertaining & interesting book. You can listen/read many times and pick up new & even funnier things each time. One of my favorites to listen to.
This book you can listen to over and over as there is always a bit you overlooked or forgot and when you hear it again, it is hilarious.
I love this book, and the reader.
I've seen the movie first, and the books is so entertaining. Some scenes in the movie are missing from this book, but they are just prolly in other books of this series.
