Mostly Harmless | [Douglas Adams]

Mostly Harmless

It's not just a trilogy any more. In the fifth book of this popular series, Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, and immediately all hell breaks loose. In short, it's up to him to save the world from total multi-dimensional obliteration, the Guide from a hostile alien takeover, and the daughter he never knew he had, from herself. A tall order, to say the least. And one he's really not up to, thank you very much.

    "Love Hitchiking"

    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.

    "Still funny, and the perfect narrator"

    I cannot think of a more natural choice for the narrator. Not just because he played Arthur Dent in the movie (if I recall correctly), but because he has the dawdling Brit thing down so well.
    It makes me think Freeman and Douglas Adams were kindred spirits.
    I've read the books, and listening to this was no less of a pleasure.

    "Mostly wonderful."
    Any additional comments?

    Martin Freeman did a fantastic job narrating. Voices were varied and distinguishable, but more than that, they fit each character wonderfully. Each voice, each reading of the dialouge seemed to have been chosen with astute consideration.

    Although there are some bright spots, most of this book is pretty bleak. I happen to love the addition of Random though, and the effect she has on Arthur.

    I loved getting another helping of THGTTG.
