    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    John says: "HHTGH - Lightly Fried"
    "Great Book and Narrator"
    Overall

    Listened to the book, then watched the film. The film was, in comparison, no where near as good as the book. So if you've only watched the film and think it would be pointless to get this - you're wrong!

    Don't panic!

  • The Restaurant at the End of the Universe: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Book 2

    Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability, and desperately in search of a place to eat.

    J. Carpenter says: "awesome... except for the voice of Zaphod"
    "Still funny!"
    Overall

    I have no idea why people are complaining about the narration. It's high quality and each character sounds unique. If you want a monotone boring narrator like the people below, then I guess this isn't for you. The narration in this book is very comparable to the great job Stephen Fry did in the first book.

    The book itself is pretty good and makes me want to continue the series. I love the world, or should I say "universe" created by Douglas Adams in this series. It's refreshing and exciting.

  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    Story

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "My first King book"
    Overall

    This was not only the first Stephen King book that I've listened to, but also the first of his that I've read. If this book is any indication of his writing style when it comes to character development, action, and unique story lines - then I can tell you right now this will NOT be my last.

    Under the Dome is an adventure of not just one character, not just two, but many characters. I feel like I was there during "Dome Day". You'd think it would be hard to follow so many characters, but the combination of Mr. King's writing and the superb Narrator's voices - it's quiet easy to recognize who is speaking even when the text itself does not say so right away.

    I still can't believe this was just one credit. Worth every single minute. I highly recommend Under the Dome.

  • Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade: A Duty Dance with Death

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By Kurt Vonnegut
    • Narrated By Ethan Hawke
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready
    Overall
    (2662)

    Story
    (1363)

    Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist classic introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a man who becomes 'unstuck in time' after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all phases of his life, concentrating on his (and Vonnegut's) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden.

    W. Seligman says: "What more can be said?"
    "Incredibly Well Done"
    Overall

    Not only is this book very good, but the reading by Ethan Hawke is absolutely superb. One of the best on the site.
