The Restaurant at the End of the Universe | [Douglas Adams]

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

If you’ve done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe? Which is exactly what the crew of the Heart of Gold plan to do. There’s just the small matter of escaping the Vogons, avoiding being taken to the most totally evil world in the Galaxy and teaching a space ship how to make a proper cup of tea. And did anyone actually make a reservation?

    "A fantastic edition to the series"

    I rarely find a book that can send me into fits of laughter on public transport but The Restaurant at the End of the Universe had me in hysterics from start to finish. The wonderfully British humor and the random spiraling tangents will keep any well respected gentlemen giggling throughout the duration of the book.

    "Brilliant"

    You don't need to be a big Sci- Fi fan to enjoy this series! Douglas Adams is the champion of humour and randomness! Although, you may feel insignificant, or jealous of the adventures of Arthur Dent as he travels around the universe with Ford, Trillion and Beeblebrox, he takes you with him to all the different places beyond your imagination.

    "The restaurant at the end of the universe"

    I found this book to be pure enjoyment from start to finish. Martin Freeman is the perfect choice for narrator.

    "Great book, narrator made me scream"
    What did you like best about The Restaurant at the End of the Universe? What did you like least?

    Like all the 'Hitchhikers' books, this is great. But Martin Freeman's voice when doing the characters drove me crazy. When he was speaking as Zaphod's older ghost relative, the screeching went on and on, and made me give up listening for a while - in the end, I could only continue by fast-forwarding.

    It's hard to do good narration while also doing different voices for characters. Freeman's voice is good as a normal story-teller. But someone should've stopped him, cos he made me hate this audio book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible, screechy voice characters

    Story
    "Not quite the hitchhikers guide"

    Bought this after thoroughly enjoying the hitchhikers guide read by Stephen Fry. Stephen Fry in my opinion is a hard act to follow and Martin Freeman doesn't quite make it. The story line too seems a little weak in places. Overall though, it was a good read and has left me seriously considering buying the next one.
