Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Absolutely lovely."

    I hadn't read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy before, but listening to Stephen Fry narrate it was perfect. His intonation and diction is superb.

    "The perfect narrator"

    There are many versions of Hitchhiker's Guide. I grew up with the BBC TV versions, but Stephen Fry has to be the most suited narrator for such a book. Sharing some interests with Douglas Adams and having the intellect to cope with the explorations into probability helps bring the spirit of the book to life, not to mention the perfect vocalizations. If you are fan of Douglas Adams, this book is for you.
