"So long and thanks for all the laughs...sorry!"
Stunning performances you've come to expect from the well-oiled (in all senses I would imagine) machine that is the Hitchhiker's cast. New additions Samantha Béart and Griff Rhys Jones also stand out.
It's a complex narrative that is rendered beautifully smooth for the casual listener - you really can listen to this again and again; real value for money.
A lovely few twists at the end to give a slightly varied ending to the books but wasn't it always so!
A necessary addition to your audiobook collection.
"Excellent series. Download is faulty"
The Hitchhikers Guide has always been a favourite of mine, and I was really happy to be able to download the radio series 3, 4 and 5.
The problem with this particular download is that at the end of the first episode (at 36 minutes and 45 seconds in fact) it crashes my iPod. So I can't listen to the rest of it.
So don't download it if you intend listening to more than the first episode.
