One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the Galaxy is a very strange and startling place.

"By turns authoritative as the narrator, bemused as Arthur Dent, deadpan as Ford Prefect and manic as Zaphod Beeblebrox, he [Stephen Fry] makes an altogether appropriate reader . . . The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" (The Times)

Very weird! I can't remember having listened to a book stranger than this. And yet, I must say I quite enjoyed it, mainly due to Stephen Fry's narration which is brilliant.
"Stephen Fry and a fantastic story."
Stephen Fry narrates the brilliant and funny hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be continuing the series!
loved it. Stephen Fry is such an amazing narrator.Such a funny book. Really worth listening to.
"Amazing story and good narrator"
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that even mildly enjoys science fiction books as it is absolutely hilarious! Almost anyone can read/listen. The only people whom I might discourage to read this book are mainly small children as they may not understand some of the content within the book. Overall the book was amazing and I loved it! I have both read the book and listened to the audio by the way!!!!! The tale is told beautifully!
"Great book, great reading by Stephen Fry"
I can now see why this is a classic, very ahead of its time. I loved it
As a 42 year old man, I have never read the book or seen the movie, but I knew it was going to be a silly space adventure.
The problem for me, I found it silly at the expense of being interesting. I found myself willing the book to end, and when it did I thought I was missing a large chunk of the story.
"would give 4 1/2"
pretty good overall few boring moments but not too bad. exited for the next one
loved everything about the story. quite improbable indeed. favorite quote - they have been experimenting on you I am afraid
"Very amusing and random story"
An amusing read, I would have preferred it to be longer though. Narration was not the best. I would recommend the story.
"Classic story narrated by the awesome Fry"
Fry does Douglas full justice with panache!
Had to stifle guffaws on the train as I listened to this on my commute.
