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.

    "skipping?"

    The recording seemed to skip around a lot. at random times it would cut out, then come back talking about something else.

    "Same characters..But no Marvin"
    Any additional comments?

    I got this book because i was a big fan of the The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. Although this was a funny book and it did keep with the story line, it still lacked the original writers apeal. Arthuer Dent, Zapphod, Trillian, Ford Prefect, they're all back, but no Marvin...sigh. But if you are really a fan then surely you must read this one. It picks up right where the last one left off so its pretty cool. You will like it but you will definately miss Douglas Adams wit.

    "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).

    "Mostly Adaquate"

    The narration for this book was not nearly as good as all the other books in this series, female voices were terrible at points and at times it was hard to tell who was speaking as the male voices started to sound alike. It didn't have the nonsensical science feel Douglas Adams pulled off so perfectly in his books. Seemed like everything made too much sense in this book. Overall it's worth a listen, just don't get your hopes up too much.

    "Fnerbulous, simply fnerbulous!!"

    I was about half way through before I realized this was not Douglas Adams, so zarking good was the penmanship of this continued masterpiece of comedic fiction, or nonfiction, depending upon the extent of the universe's plurality. The other installments were read by none other than Bilbo Bagins himself, yet even Bilbo must take a back seat to Simon Jones.

    "Very good follow up "

    After Douglas Adams passed Eoin Colfer was tapped to write a 6th installment of the series Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy considering Douglas Adams himself was unhappy with the fifth entry, it's a admirable attempt to capture the essence of of the series and while not Adams particular wit, I would definitely recommend this to those as great finale to the series.

    "Huge disappointment"

    For any fan of THGTTG, it is no surprise that Douglas Adams is irreplaceable. I did not have high hopes for this posthumous follow up to the series, but I could not resist joining another adventure with Arthur, Forde, Zaphod, and the rest.

    By the halfway point in the book I was ready to be done, but the book slogs on and on passing several decent stopping points. Finally it ends, abruptly, as if the author ran out of money and typed "the end".

    Story
    "A brilliant ending."

    The ending, half dozing as I was, left me with a hopeful sense of a new beginning in my own life. Brilliant.

    The beginning, meeting Arthur, Trillion, and Ford in their middle age reminded how young we were at the first reading of The first book of Douglass Adams trilogy.

    It was the fiddly bits around the middle that gave me trouble, or maybe it was the organic butter spread I had on my toast at lunch. In either event, Zaephod had either mellowed with age, or had lost his Beebelbroxian arrogance with the externalization of one of his formerly bi-cranial heads. But perhaps I give too much away.

    As the fourth book of the original trilogy lost some of the first threes poignancy, so this, in the middle spaces, seems to lose the point.

    But maybe that is the point, and why we love Adams creations, even when told through the eyes of an avid devote.

    We've listened to the original BBC broadcasts of the trilogy enumerable times in the past 30 years. I think we'll do so again, shortly.

    "A fitting 6th book for this timeless trilogy."

    Only one book was necessary to turn the greatest 5 volume trilogy to the greatest 6 volume trilogy!

    "Not as good as the first few"
    What did you like best about And Another Thing...? What did you like least?

    This book was slow and not as funny as the others. I believe this series should have ended a few books ago. I continued to get these books because I liked the characters and was curious how it would end. The series would have been better if it ended a few books ago.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Continuing "The Expanse" series


    Did And Another Thing... inspire you to do anything?

    no it didn't
