    Story

    I love the book and Douglas Adams is one of my favorite authors (and now one of my favorite narrators), but the abridgment of this book is a crime. At first there were just a few small things missing, but, if you've read the book - by the time it wraps up you realized that it missed a bunch of key plot points and the ending no longer makes much sense.
    I've heard that there is an unabridged version out there and I hope that Audible can find it, because I would happily spend more money to buy it to replace this version.
    If you love Douglas Adams and his stories, this recording is worth having, just for enjoyment. But the full book is so much better.
