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.

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.[
Amazing story line. Couldn't wait to listen when heard Martin Freeman was reading. It was lovely to hear another book in the series with Arthur and Ford in it
This installment in the Hitchhiker's Guide series is a return to form, following the slump of the 2nd book. Although the beginning is a bit chaotic, the rest of the book is fantastic- a true continuation of the first. Great narration by Martin Freeman too.
Bit of a newbie listener, still trying to find out what I like
Third in the series and I'm looking forward to hearing where the plot goes now. Will we find out the ultimate question? What will happen to Arthur?
Spoiler alert. Douglas Adams gets an unexplainable fetish for cricket, and no, you don't get to find out the ultimate question. The story was ok in places, meandered aimlessly like a lost sheep in others. Gave the story line 3 stars as, despite its meandering, managed to keep my attention.
Martin Freeman defiantly does Life, the Universe, and Everything justice as one of my favorite readers. This book, another Douglas Adams classic, will make you laugh till your jaw hurts with hilarious dialog and a humor lost on many this will keep you entertained on the bus albeit with a few stares from the general public as you chuckle quietly to yourself
Perfect, if you started the series, don't stop until you are at the end. Arthur finds himself in another sticky situation and craving more a good cup of tea. Do not miss it.
The dramatisation of certain characters were a little too much for my taste. Nevertheless it's overall pleasant thanks to Martin Freeman's soothing voice.
