Publisher's Summary

An Englishman's continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea

Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident. Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate. Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world's oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up...again.

And Another Thing... is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.

Life, the universe, and everything: listen to the rest of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series and related titles.

    "not funny"

    You know those people who aren't funny but who make jokes anyway, and it's all embarrassing and awkward for everyone else? This book is like that. I stopped when I figured this out. (For calibration, I thought the "real" books were hilarious).

    "Utter destruction of a wonderful series"

    Eoin Colfer ruined the series with this gum-on-the-bottom-of my-shoe story.
    I have been reading Douglas Adams' stories for 10 years now, I have loved the characters in the hitchhikers series and Colfer has come and pulled the story apart using a juvenile plot and childish style of writing. I felt like I was reading a 9 year old trying desperately to write like his Daddy. It was terrible.

    Simon Jones was at one time a great voice actor, he was great as Dent in the BBC radio dramatization years ago, but he has lost much of his talent. As a reader of the story he was just alright.

    "loved the first 5"

    this book was a bit of a stretch for me. with all due respect, Adams phoned it in with names like 'Aceed Preflux' (don't quote my spelling, and if u don't get it... Acid Reflux). I just found it shtick.

    "Better than a high quality digital watch"

    It is better than a top notch digital watch and as filled with an improbably improbable set of words arranged in such a way that redefines coherence into something similar of meaning to... Coherence2x

    "Excellent book in the Douglas Adams style"

    First of all, I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. it is by far one of my favorite series. When I saw this book I knew I had to have it.

    Listening to it, I could almost forget Douglas Adams didn't write it. This is partially due to the narrator.

    I didn't like the end. I liked how it almost ended, but didn't.

    "A fitting ending… or is it?"

    This is a 15 ending for the series, if it indeed ends here. Not exactly a happy ending, and you shouldn't expect that from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

    Eoin Colfer does a fine job emulating Douglas Adams. If I didn't know it, I would never say it wasn't the original author who wrote this — except maybe for the fact that this is a less bitter and depressing book than the previous two. Its tone is more in line with the first book in the series.

    I'd recommend it to any Hitchhiker's Guide fan, diehard or not.

    "Not as good as Douglas Adams"

    I enjoyed this book, and it's fun, but I found myself asking "is this what Adams would have done?" fairly regularly.

    "Editing problems"

    Good story, but there were some editing problems that caused audio skips. Otherwise worth it. A worthy addition to the Hitchhiker trilogy.
