Publisher's 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.

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.

The Brilliance Continues

The only problem with this book, as with the others in the series and as I have explained at great lengths to anyone who will listen (i.e. nobody) is that it is altogether too short.
Martin Freeman does a superb job as narrator and the writing is just as funny, eccentric and surprising as the previous books in the series. I very much look forward to the next one.

Comedic absurdity at it's best.

A hilarious continuation of the last book with new adventures and hijinks from the original characters.

brilliant story, if a little hazy

It's Douglas Adams. You know it's going to be good. not as good as the first two mind, but essential reads all the same.

Another terribly enjoyable audiobook

Still occasionally confusing storywise, but all around enjoyable especially when being read by Martin Freeman.

A Classic as expected

Douglas Adams is the sci fi of Terry Pratchett and always an enjoyable read!
If you have read the first two books then you will enjoy this equally.
