I had no idea that Eoin Colfer had been tapped to continue the Hitchhiker series. I was checking to see if there was a new Artemis Fowl book yet and saw this... had to have it. Fantastic listen! The reader deserves a full 5 stars, but I marked the book at 4 simply because of a few nitpicky things. Colfer seems to be trying too hard at times - a few too many "guide notes," the footnotes we all know and love, and names that are so ridiculous they remind me of the later Xanth books. I don't mean just odd names, I mean names that are supposed to be funny because they sound like what the person has done. You'll hear what I mean.
Bottom line is this - if Brandon Sanderson does half as good a job finishing The Wheel Of Time series and Colfer has done here, there are going to be a lot of happy Jordan fans.
