    One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audio book. I find that Stephy Fry performance gives the perfect tonality for Douglas Adams work.


    What other book might you compare Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to and why?

    The closest would be the Eyre Affaire.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush, who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah's voice explains that there are 13 reasons she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out why.

    FanB14 says: "Good Book for Parents & Teens to Share"
    "Potential but somewhat disappointing."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Jay Asher and/or Debra Wiseman and Joel Johnstone ?

    I was very much disappointed by the female narrator who seemed much older than the character in question. I was regularly taken out of the story, thinking that the voice is much to old to represent the thoughts of a teenager.
    I do believe that an audiobook is the perfect medium for this type of story.


    Would you recommend Thirteen Reasons Why to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not, although I found the concept of the story interesting, the execution did not leave a strong impression.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Debra Wiseman and Joel Johnstone ?

    I would listen to other novel narrated by Joel Johnstone.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, I believe that the audio component is the strong aspect of this novel
