"Douglas Adams is a terrific satirist....He is anything but harmless." (The Washington Post Book World)
"Hitchhiker fans rejoice!...[Here's] more of the same zany nonsensical mayhem." (The New York Times Book Review)
Hitchhiker is just plain fun. I loved the series when i was young. I read it in college, and again in Med school, and again when i started reading for pleasure again, and now I am going to listen to them all.
I cannot wait. I just wish Douglas was alive for more, but I am about to read Coffer's installment (or try) for a 6th book in the series.
Perfect narrator for a great series. I just love the whole bit. So long and thanks for all the fish 🐠.
It is , in my opinion, the weakest in the series. Seems a bit disjointed and boring and has an unsatisfying ending. Still worth a listen if you're a fan but maybe revisit the others afterwards to remind yourself why you liked this series in the first place.
This sequel has a surprising ending, delivers mind boggling scenarios that keeps the reader/listener repeating phrasing just to keep up. The listener is Arthur Dint and you have to be Ford to navigate through the knot the universe becomes.
I loved the story and it was read very well. Unexpected things were always around the corner and Freedman did a very good job of telling them. Readers of all sorts will love this book ( even though there is no Marvin
In Mostly Harmless, Adams' brings the Hitchhikers' series ti a fitting close. It is a bit more seriious than the other books, still very funny though, but also contains one of the greates scenes of domesticity in English literature - the description of "The Sandwich Maker". There is a lot of modern cosmology hidden in this book - Adams certainly relied on Multiverse theories to create the stage for his work.
But all that aside - it is a very enjoyable listen, albeit in a slightly different fashion than some of the earlier books. The comic criticism of some elements of modern life is hard to miss...
