First I have to say that I LOVE the Hitchhikers Guide series! It is one of my favorites and I will continue to re-read the series. Out of the 5 book series this is the one that I did not care of very much. I found myself trying to get through it for some reason. Don't get me wrong I love the book but compared to the first two this one was not my favorite. Narration was wonderfully done by Martin Freeman who is one of my favorites! Still recommend reading it as part of the series.
Okay when I first started listening to The Martian I wasn't sure what to think about it. I could not understand how I could listen to it for 10+ hours and it hold my interest. After about an hour I started to get really interested and then all of a sudden couldn't stop listening. If you have a hard time in the beginning just hang in there it gets better. I felt the narrator did a wonderful job with the main character. I would recommend this book and just remind the person to keep listening and then all of a sudden your with the main character stuck on the planet experiencing the dangers with him! What an adventure!
Yes, it is a very long audio book but TOTALLY worth it! This has to be in my top 10. I usually listen to my books while working (I have a job that allows me to do that) or while driving but with this one I was constantly listening to it while dong laundry, cooking dinner, relaxing at night....etc. Ken Follett draws you in from the very beginning and holds your attention for the entire book, which is a lot to say since its a lengthly book. I did not want it to end. I'm on the fence about World without End only cause I loved Pillars so much. John Lee did a wonderful job narrating and I'm happy to know that he continues to narrate Ken Follett's other books. Overall, I would recommend Pillar to anyone.
I read Wool last year and decided to listen to Shift about a month ago. I love reading reviews on the books before purchasing to see what others say about it. With that said I already knew that the characters in Wool were not in Shift. I still loved the book. Shift starts to give you some answers (not all answers, but some) and a little history of the Silos. I surprisingly enjoyed the story and the performance was wonderfully done.
This series is in my top favorite and will always pick it up if I am in need for some entertainment. The second book in particular is wonderfully written and I feel it is as good as the first. Martin Freeman narrates the second book and found him to be very good and entertaining. Although Zaphoid has this really annoying accent I was still able to enjoy the characters. Of course I would recommend this to everyone!
I love this book! In fact, I make sure that this book is always downloaded on my phone just in case I don't have anything to listen to. I have listened to this book twice and I still found myself laughing out loud. Douglas Adams keeps you entertained and the performance is outstanding. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained!
