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)

    Story
    "Trip down memory lane"
    What did you like most about Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

    It was a revisit of a book I had read about 30/40 years ago


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

    The boarding of the Vogon ship


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes, especially his own autobiographies


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's not really a book that shifts you emotionally, but just takes you on a jolly ride


    Any additional comments?

    The only real disappointment was how familiar it all was. I guess I'd hoped I'd have forgotten most of it but I hadn't and, so it wasn't knew. Rather it was a trip down memory lane.
