    Story
    (205)

    Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and he's drawn into a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not sure who would enjoy this, it is a very bad re-production of a great book. I would say read the book and avoid this dramatized version, I bought it by mistake, if I could I would get my money back,


    Would you ever listen to anything by Douglas Adams again?

    Yes, if it was word for word.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was acted badly, period. The episodes repeated the same credits over and over.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I cant think of anything that redeemed this book at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy the real book, or get an actual audio book that is read verbatum, this is a bad re-production that took away from the fantastic original and replaced it with unfunny repetitive boredom. This is the one book I wood like a refund for.
