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)

    "Awesome"

    Can not recommend this strongly enough. If you have ever read the book, Stephen Fry, brings you're images flooding into life. This should be in everyone's list. Hilarious

    "Loved it.."

    I've read the book a couple of times but never heard it before. Stephen Fry is masterful as the narrator; his delivery is spot on and the voices for the characters are wonderful.
    Well worth listening to, even if you haven't read it.

    "Perfect!"

    I've read this book before and decided to listen to it on audiobook.

    I loved it then but this time I actually found it even better! Why? Well, two words really. Stephen Fry.

    Stephen immerses you in the story with his acting and takes you away with Arthur, Ford and Zaphod. His accents make the characters come to life and for me, makes them colourful and vibrant. His portrayal of Zaphod in particular stuck out as I actually thought another great actor, Bill Nighy, was doing his voice. Well worth every penny!

    "Superb"

    Stephen Fry most certainly was the best choice for narrator. Love the story, book is always, always better than the movie. Highly recommend!

    "Best book ever"

    I'm reading for the second time and it. Is. Brilliant. I'd recommend it for people who love all things weird. My favourite characters are the mice.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    A very entertaining and enjoyable performance by the brilliant Stephen Fry. I am in awe at his ability to keep a straight (sound?) in face of the absurdity of the brilliant world of Douglas Adams!
