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).

    "Unlike the Recent Additions to..."

    the Mass Effect, Transformers, or Fast & Furious series, "And Another Thing" is a welcome compatriot to the other Hitchhiker's novels. Though not written by Adams himself, Colfer seems at ease writing with the same tongue-in-cheek humor and sudden whimsical twists as the original. Though I'm not literature's most discerning critic, I nevertheless enjoyed this book and the delightful narration provided by Simon Jones. Highly recommend to a Hitchhiker's Guide fan!

    "Too many guide notes"

    "Audio Skips"

    Audio skips and distorts frequently, almost as if this was recorded of a scratched CD and then used as the audiobook.

    "Start to finish entertainment"

    This instalment is every bit as entertaining as any of the other 5 books. the hysterics and absurdity are at times overwhelming and far beyond comical. I hate to see the series end.

    "Better left unsaid"

    Lacks the depth of Douglas Adams. Valiant effort, but that's it, an effort. Far too many 'guide notes', especially those that went off on things that would not have been in the Hitchhiker's guide as described in the book and delved into the personal lives and histories of either the characters or random irrelevant minor characters. The bits about the galaxy or a certain planet or historical fact were fine, but still too frequent and not keeping with the usage from the previous installments. Would have been better to have ended with Adams. Interesting fan fiction though. Performance was great.
