    "Loved It"

    If Douglas Adams could have chosen someone to read his books I think he would have chosen Martin Freeman. Perhaps he did. Or is he dead? Regardless, Martin's perfectly dry delivery makes him the ideal carrier for Douglas' perfectly dry wit. Between them they had me laughing out loud and the Adams-Freeman combination is one I keep coming back to.

    "Fun, but not the best of the series "

    Martin Freeman narrates well, although it sounds like he had a cold. Still, overall a good audio book.

    "Millions of people love Hitchhiker’s"

    So why is the actor chosen to read it so entirely ignorant of the story that he fluffs one of the biggest jokes of the series by mispronouncing ‘Mueller’? Why does he seem to have so grossly misunderstood the characters?

    A missed opportunity, typical of the shameless cash-ins that have proliferated since Douglas Adams’ death.

    "Thanks for all the fun and smoked Salmon"

    Entertaining from the very beginning to the end. You will never find another trilogy as funny as this one. You will never find a trilogy of 5 books as funny as this one.

    "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!

    "Excellent book, not the best in series"

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