Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't miss the first parts of the series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    "Dissapointed"

    Having loved Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it's pretty obvious that only the first book is the hit. The rest are just 'eh'. There are funny moments sprinkled in, but Mostly Harmless really has nothing going on for any good reason.

    This is a major departure from the style you'd expect from this series and on top of that, it doesn't offer anything to advance our characters storylines other than a dumb ending for the sake of an ending.

    Martin Freeman is awesome though. I really wish he'd narrate more books.

    "The end...."

    Great story, however, was a little disappointed in the way it ended. so I guess I'm going on to the next book, AND ANOTHER THING.

    "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.

    "Love this series!"

    It is good to listen to the whole series of Douglas Adam's Books, they are classics. I am glad they are on audio books and as I seem to have never got the time to sit down and read them cover to cover.

    "Not great, but Martin Freeman makes it enjoyable"

    Definitely the weakest of the four. Still enjoyable to listen to because of Martin Freeman.

    "That was a disappointing ending."

    It was all leading up to a climax and its like the author got bored and decided to just end it.

    "So much love!"

    I love all of the Hitchhiker books, but this one has a special place in my heart. The snark and laissez faire of the characters is toned down a bit, and there are some really beautiful moments of true emotion. I always come away from reading (or listening) to this book with the feeling I imagine I would have if I ever managed to say the clever thing I should have said at the time I should have said it and not ten minutes afterward...which is when I usually think of the clever thing I should have said. That is to say, this book makes me completely satisfied.
