    Story
    (1055)

    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"
    "I love this book!"

    Would you listen to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe again? Why?

    Yes, it's a classic, and listening to it aloud makes it even more fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of the Hitchhiker books are hilarious, and this one is no exception.


    What about Martin Freeman’s performance did you like?

    I liked his voice for Marvin the paranoid android.


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

    It made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate Martin Freeman's Zaphod Beeblebrox voice. He sounds like Joe Pesci.

    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.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in three words, what would they be?

    What a ride!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Trillian is my favorite character. She isn't a shrinking violet of a woman, and that is refreshing.


    What does Stephen Fry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He gives all the characters recognizable tones and accents, I certainly didn't do that in my head!


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

    I laughed. A lot!

    The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads, so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the white killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.

    I listened to this book in my car on the way to do errands or to classes. It made the long drive from home a lot more bearable.

    I love all of Douglas Adams' books, and this one kept the story going without being tedious like some sequels are.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved when Trillian hugged the Cricketer.


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

    I laughed!
