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)

    "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!

    "classic comedy sci fi"

    Brilliant, easy going, philosophical and ironical. Better than watching your bank manager duel with the bug batter beast of traal or something like that.
