    The Washington Post's former Baghdad bureau chief, Rajiv Chandrasekaran, takes us into the Green Zone, headquarters for the American occupation in Iraq. In this bubble separated from wartime realities, the task of reconstructing Iraq is in the hands of 20-somethings chosen for their Republican Party loyalty. They pursue irrelevant neoconservative solutions and pie-in-the-sky policies instead of rebuilding looted buildings and restoring electricity, angering the locals and fueling the insurgency.

    Any additional comments?

    I bought this on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised. It's not action-packed, but it is a seemingly objective account of how America handled post-war Iraq. It opened my eyes to what was actually happening there, which would be very difficult to piece together from what you hear and see on the news. I would recommend this book.

    A Special Edition of the original radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian poll. Starring Peter Jones, Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan and Stephen Moore, these six episodes (Fit the First to Fit the Sixth) have been remastered to modern-day standards by Dirk Maggs, and for the first time feature Philip Pope's arrangement of the familiar theme tune.

    Thomas says: "Difficult to listen to in the car!"
    "This is a radio broadcast, not a book"

    What did you like best about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? What did you like least?

    Very quirky and unexpected, keeping it interesting. The performance and sound effects were pretty good. I heard this was a good book, but I didn't like listening to the radio broadcast like this. It was annoying to have the credits repeated every 30 minutes or so because an "episode" had finished. It would have been better if they edited those parts out, or pushed them to the very end.
