Publisher's Summary

And Another Thing...will be the sixth novel in the now improbably named Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy

An Englishman's continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea . . . Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has not been entirely without incident. Arthur has travelled the length, breadth and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forwards and backwards through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released and colourfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And, of course, he has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe and everything.

Arthur has, though, finally made it home to Earth. But that does not mean he has escaped his fate. For Arthur's chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa are evaporating along with the world's oceans. Because no sooner has he arrived than he finds out that Earth is about to be blown up...again.

And Another Thing...by Eoin Colfer is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth instalment of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favourite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer and at least one very large slab of cheese.

Froody Madness

Eoin Colfer has done a splendid job of keeping the goofiness alive, and Simon Jones should be congratulated for a superb narration.

Listening to this book brought back fond memories of listening to the previous Douglas Adams H2G2 books, and I enjoyed the wacky stories and the sense of deja vu created by the plot. I enjoyed the humour but felt that the god-bashing was a little overdone, but not gratuitous. I guess it was required by the plot, and raised some interesting philosophical questions, which I enjoyed.

This book doesn't feel like a sequel or a "keep the successful formula going" effort. It has plenty of original ideas and feels fresh and froody. I think it brings the series to an elegant close, and it will take a brave man to write part 7.

Great ending of great series

I wish either Martin Freeman or Stephen Fry would do the whole series, but this is still well read!
The story continuous to be funny, sweet and thought-provoking. Confusing end... Wish there were more...

Not worth even a drop of Adams' ink

If you love the original HGttG works by Douglas Adams so not spoil your impression of them by this horrible parody of his genius. The story makes no sense, the jokes are pasted on with Superglue and the thought in my mind were when it was going to end.

A great addition from a fresh author.

I was skeptical at first when hearing of Eion's entry into the HG2G series, but this was easily up there as one of my favorites. I highly recommend it to any fan.

Slightly sad

Would you try another book from Eoin Colfer and/or Simon Jones?

I love Arthemis Fowl, and I do own all of them, but Eoin Colfer is not Duglas Adems and the story is not as intriguing or as wonderful.

If you’ve listened to books by Eoin Colfer before, how does this one compare?

Not at all. I am sorry to say

Did Simon Jones do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes he is abel to make a good difference between the characters and it is fun to listen to him.

Was And Another Thing... worth the listening time?

It is worth it if you walk ore do housework, but not if you sit down only to listen to that.

Any additional comments?

It helped to get a closure of the prevues books, but not if you want to have a perfeced book.

Enjoyable listen, but I fear a thankless task

The use of Simon Jones as the narrator goes some way to making this work and feel like a familiar pair of slippers all be it slippers that were bought by your old maiden aunt in Winnipeg and have been languishing unloved in the bottom of your wardrobe for 17 years. I can't help but believe that Douglas would have felt a little cheated as he clearly wished to lighten the despair that for personal reasons dominated 'Mostly Harmless' and this simply doesn't, early promise seems to falter towards the end of the book and it feels like this became an ever increasing challenge for Eoin as the book progressed. What it does do is leave things open for next book!? Could this become an annual event with a new writer each time, after all Eoin Colfer has already ruled himself out.

Guide note

The phrase guide note is used way to often and why in a last book of the series did he add new characters

It's ok. But it is not Douglas Adams

While the author tries hard to write in Douglas Adams style it is just not the same.
