    The very aptly named Mr Pong had the kind of breath that could stun at over ten feet… This wasn’t just bad – there was something rotten down there. Something had crawled in and died. Gunter howled with laughter as he saw the look of horror on my face. It was the best entertainment he had seen since he had watched Chef chasing yaks through the kitchens.

    If you could sum up The Hotel on the Roof of the World in three words, what would they be?

    Funny
    Poignant
    True


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tashi, his explanation that he is Tashi. Tashi Delek.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The funeral. Having been China this is something I could see a guide doing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book is very funny. I laughed out load at several points.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been to China on several occasions’ both as a tourist (with China Spree), and while on business. China is a very unique place with an amazing culture. But, to our western way of life a lot of this culture is truly bizarre. This book demonstrates some of this culture, while still showing that we are all one tribe. We all generally want the same things out of life.
    This is one of the best fish out of water stories that I have ever read… or been read. If you like humor like the Hitchhiker Guide or Monty Python you will love this book.

    Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident.Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary.

    John Williams says: "A delightful return to the H2G2 Universe"

    What made the experience of listening to And Another Thing... the most enjoyable?

    Simon Jones is a great narrator.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It needed to be edited. The story dragged on a bit.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He is awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a several parts of the book it is very funny, just a bit too much content.


    Any additional comments?

    Had this been edited it would fit much better with the Douglas Adams classics.

    With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that Jim Breuer made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Not High?

    The voice work that he does.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His Dad on the Plane


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh. It was a great story, and I look forward to a future book.

    It was great to learn more about Jim and his family.

    It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back.

    Would you consider the audio edition of In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks... to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Hearing Adam talk about the stories gives greater insight.


    What other book might you compare In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks... to and why?

    God No by Penn from Penn and Teller. They both share a lot of their personal in the stories.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hearing about his two front doors.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was a really funny book


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, funny stories!

    Good story.

    This is good book, but it can get a little dry. You certainly start rooting for the bad guy to get his.
