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.[

Hilarious. So funny, so well written, so well read

Martin Freeman does marvellous job narrating this classic must-read novel. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Watch out for the Lords of Krikket!

Martin Freeman again delivers a fantastic narration of the late, great Douglas Adams words. A couple of the characters weren't quite vocalised how I imagined and that initially jolted me but overall, this is a lot of fun to listen to.

Of the first three, this one is the least good

The story is not as good as in the first two books. It’s slow, dull and very weird - not in a good way unfortunately. It takes a long time for the book to reach the level the two others are on.
