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.

    "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.

    "skipping?"

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

    "Extremely Boring"

    This Book is bad. Really bad. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly bad it is........ Three hours of mindless blather per five minutes of plot.

    And the reading sucked too.

    "A Fitting Continuation of the Hitchhiker Series"
    If you could sum up And Another Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    Mostly Harmless.


    Any additional comments?

    When somebody attempts to continue in the footsteps of a deceased author, there are often challenges to either stay too close to the original, or to take the series to places that don't fit the original spirit. Thankfully Eoin Colfer has found a great mix of old and new premises re-capture the essence of Douglas Adams's classic trilogy (in 5 parts).

    While some of the writing style is clearly different, it's not distracting enough to seem out of place. Colfer has his own voice, and his own sense of humor so his take on Hitchhiker is refreshing.

    I'm a huge fan of the series, so I look forward to seeing the series continue.

    "Good book, but..."
    What made the experience of listening to And Another Thing... the most enjoyable?

    Simon Jones is a great narrator.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It needed to be edited. The story dragged on a bit.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He is awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a several parts of the book it is very funny, just a bit too much content.


    Any additional comments?

    Had this been edited it would fit much better with the Douglas Adams classics.
