    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"
    "BAD NARRATOR!"
    Overall

    WHY would someone commit the crime of re-recording douglas adam's brilliant performance of this book with a new and NOT AS FUNNY narrator. This book is peculiar in that like a peice of music, it requires the best performer to bring out its comic qualities. the best reader ever of these books was the late Douglas Adams himself. A POX upon anyone who would shame themselves and Adams by re-recording the book to fit with a movie narrator's voice. This just goes to show that people will do ANYTHING upon ANYTHING for money, and we the unwitting public will likely swallow such horrible garbage as this imposter of a performance. I puke with rage at this affront to Adams, and I hope you do too.
