I know that this is a staple among nerds and geeks alike, of which I consider myself in both respects, however, while it has a certain sarcastic, quirky yet, loveable aspects, I feel the story falls short. The redeeming factor, and honestly the best quality of this audiobook is Stephen Fry's performance. He does a masterful job conveying each character's uniqueness and emotion. I was pleasantly surprised with his portrayal and disappointed with the overall story. However I bought it on sale, and therefore not disappointed with my purchase.
Overall Rating: Worth Listening to, but wait for a sale.
I listened to this while on a long road trip! It was perfectly hilarious, and probably annoyed everyone in the car with my constant jabs of laughter. Steven fry has the most relaxing/interesting voice too, definitely worth it.
Very entertaining. If you are short of imagination this book will make you feel even more inadequate. The use of language made the scenes quite vivid for me. It should be required reading for writing students to show what can be done with English.
I'm an unrepentant bookworm with too much time on my hands. I read at least 100+ books annually, with audio books as my main addiction!
If you're looking for an amazing, and classic sci fi book, then look no further! Ive been a fan the the newerr lllllkkkytt
