Publisher's Summary

In consequence of a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. He discovers that the Galaxy is not only mind-boggingly big and bewildering but also that most of the things that happen in it are staggeringly unfair.

Mostly harmless.

Exciting. But not as exciting as Eccentrica Gallumbits. Eccentrica Gallumbits is the triple-breasted whore of Eroticon Six. Some people say her erogenous zones start some four miles from her actual body. Ford Prefect disagrees, saying five.[

Return to Form

This installment in the Hitchhiker's Guide series is a return to form, following the slump of the 2nd book. Although the beginning is a bit chaotic, the rest of the book is fantastic- a true continuation of the first. Great narration by Martin Freeman too.

Cricket and Sofas

Martin Freeman defiantly does Life, the Universe, and Everything justice as one of my favorite readers. This book, another Douglas Adams classic, will make you laugh till your jaw hurts with hilarious dialog and a humor lost on many this will keep you entertained on the bus albeit with a few stares from the general public as you chuckle quietly to yourself

Again, great!

Perfect, if you started the series, don't stop until you are at the end. Arthur finds himself in another sticky situation and craving more a good cup of tea. Do not miss it.

Another terribly enjoyable audiobook

Still occasionally confusing storywise, but all around enjoyable especially when being read by Martin Freeman.

A Classic as expected

Douglas Adams is the sci fi of Terry Pratchett and always an enjoyable read!
If you have read the first two books then you will enjoy this equally.

The Brilliance Continues

The only problem with this book, as with the others in the series and as I have explained at great lengths to anyone who will listen (i.e. nobody) is that it is altogether too short.
Martin Freeman does a superb job as narrator and the writing is just as funny, eccentric and surprising as the previous books in the series. I very much look forward to the next one.

it's like written for children by children

the voices he does are super annoying, and it goes from o wow to boring and back again

Over the top

Some things are getting a bit much with the story. A few to many coincidences. A few too many stupid things from Arther.
