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)

"As good as remembered"
It was great fun to listen to this especially with Stephen Fry narrating. As often happens with these sort of books not a good idea to listen when out for a walk as laughing out loud still does get the odd look.
One of my favourite boos of all time, Stephens presentation was just how I imagined for this storey to be portrayed. Thank you for all the fish!
"fantastic satirical humour"
shame its not the whole book!
otherwise its a fantastic series mixing whit and humour with intelligent storyline.
Read before but totally enjoyed it on audiobook would recommend to everyone.
"The Hitchhiking review"
This book, and the way it was read, was wonderful.
It was absolutely brilliantly read, and it did the book justice.
Perfect reading before bed. Stephen Fry is an amazing narrator - on the hunt for more like this.
"would recommend "
funny , witty and well read...Stephen fry really brings the book to life. would highly recommend
"What an odd but thoroughly engaging listen."
Creative characters and an other worldly listen narrated perfectly. A story that just keeps you thinking and answering questions you never knew you needed the answer to!
What a load of old nonsense - I listened twice! - superbly read by Stephen Fry who could make reading a phone book interesting.
might listen again as it was easy to miss key parts of the plot when driving. enjoyed the narration.
