Publisher's Summary

Arthur Dent hadn't had a day as bad as this since the Earth had been blown up. Depressed and alone, Arthur finally settles on the small planet Lamuella and becomes a sandwich maker. Looking forward to a quiet life, his plans are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. There's nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - he's encountered most of them before.... Volume Five in the Trilogy of Five.

    I started listening to audio books on a killer commute for my job and got hooked. Now local again, I listen whilst on evening or W/E walks

    "love hitchhiker's guide. one more part"

    apparently this bit is optional but review has to be twenty words. somewhat like a truly terrible waffling vogon poem I will fill this space and say I loved this book. as I love all hitchhiker's guide books this didn't take me terribly by surprise. but does explain the confusion I encountered having stumbled upon "and another thing" somewhat like a non linear time line. now having adjusted to temporal shifts and multi dimensions I realise "mostly harmless" came first. now to go back to the future and revisit "and another thing......."

    "an enjoyable conclusion to the trilogy (of five)."

    if you like hitch hikers you will want to know how it all ends, and this is it. Martin Freeman does a great job of bringing the text to life making it all a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

    "No time to read??"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, its a great way to get into the books if like me you don't find you have time to sit and read!


    What other book might you compare Mostly Harmless to, and why?

    Any of D.A. books as they are all brilliant, funny, thought provoking and a bit silly!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    none was better or worse as they all ROCK!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no as i don't have time for one sitting listens.


    Any additional comments?

    if like me you find the act of reading tedious this is an excellent way of 'reading' the books you thought you never would!

    "beautiful"

    It was perfect in every way a wonderful 'end' to an incredible series. Douglas Adams is something else.

    "Excellent book, not the best in series"

    Mostly Harmless has much of Adams' genius but feels like a hasty roundoff of HHGTTG.

    "Amazing story"

    Douglas Adams is one the greatest story tellers to have lived and having Martin Freeman read it was just a brilliant choice
