This book is narrated by a former phone phreak who has first-hand experience with many of the concepts and methods discussed in this book. So, not only do you get an interesting book telling you all about the way the phone was, and the people involved in the phone phreak culture, you also get a great narration by someone who knows the lingo, understands the concepts and has an appreciation for the network as it was during the period covered by this book. If you don't believe this, just visit the following Web sites and listen to some of the recordings presented there:
Particularly, the series "The Sounds of Long-Distance" will let you hear what long-distance sounded like back when the people in this book were doing their thing. Even as some of this material was being recorded, the network was changing, but, the feel of the old network is still very much present in those recordings.
I can't think of a better person to narrate this book!

At the end of the Secondary Phase of the Hitchhikers' Guide series, we heard Arthur Dent take off in Zaphod's ship, along with Marvin, a Lintilla clone, Eddie, the shipboard computer, etc. Now, he wakes up on earth, 2 million years in our past?
So, that just proves the universe is stranger than we think--especially Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers' universe.
Now, you can hear, in all of BBC's brilliant radio style, the dramatization of the third book, "Life, The Universe, and everything". Will Arthur find out the ultimate question this time? Will he finally get a cup of tea? Will he return to earth and settle down--even though the vogons destroyed the earth?
Listen and find out!
The BBC, again, does a wonderful job in bringing the third book to life, and, thanks to BBC and Audible, you can go along for the ride.
The BBC has given voices to some new characters, and, been able to bring many original cast members back for the dramatization of the final 3 books in the series. Some of the original cast are no longer with us, but, the BBC has done a good job replacing them.
True, the actors are a little older, but, I still don't have any trouble believing who they are.
This was performed after Douglas Adams died, but, he does make an appearance. See if you can guess who he plays!

I am an avid talking book user and am used to the one-narrator performances from The Library of Congress NLS (National Library Service for the Blind and physically handicapped) and other commercial performances. However, I have always wanted to hear an audio book read the way this one was and my hat goes off to the Full Cast family. They did a great job and the voice performances were quite believable. I now know what the characters in this book sound like. Thanks Audible for making this one available.
