    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.

    "Excellent - follows the book not the movie"
    Overall

    Having read this book 21 years ago - I raised my children on it (now 14 & 17). I started when they were in the crib.

    Both boys love it so much they have done at least 5 book reviews on it (each), finding more & more they can understand & enjoy each time. I absolutely still love it as a grown married woman.

    The movie, while funny, could not come close to the humor of the book. Since we knew the inside stories we were laughing before the movie briefly showed the punch line. A lot was lost in the movie.

    If you like this one, try all the rest of his part to the trilogy - as Douglas Adams said to a reporter "who says there can only be 3 books in a trilogy".

    After hearing the sample, I immediatly knew this was the full unabridged version I know & love - the British accent & voice is a wonderful authentic addition (it does take place near London).

    It's NOT British dry humor - it's a universally understood you have to laugh type story.
