Fascinating

The essence of a good interview is whether it ends up being interesting. In that case, this interview gets 10 out of 10. It also answers numerous questions about Douglas Adams, the hitchhiker movie, and so on. Too bad I missed the movie on circuit, but plan to watch it on video.

You Must ...

in my top ten books there are only 2 must reads/listen A Christmas Carol which you could read or listen and H2G2. I believe the better choice there is listen. if you can find one read by Douglas Adams it is FAR superior to any other iterations.

Very good interview

The questions posed were exactly those that I would have asked. It was a very quick listen, over before I knew it.

It makes me sad.

Any additional comments?

This interview about the movie is all the sadder because I hated the movie so much.

Discussing a hack job

While I was watching this movie, the question that repeatedly entered my mind was "What the hell were they thinking?" This interview addresses some of these issues, but not all of them.

Not what it claims to be

This is not what the title would suggest, as it is not the book or the radio show. It is in fact a set of interviews, and as such be published under a different title.
