An Englishman’s continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea . . .

Arthur Dent’s accidental association with that wholly remarkable book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, has not been entirely without incident.

Arthur has traveled the length, breadth, and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forward and backward through time. He has been blown up, reassembled, cruelly imprisoned, horribly released, and colorfully insulted more than is strictly necessary. And of course Arthur Dent has comprehensively failed to grasp the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

Arthur has finally made it home to Earth, but that does not mean he has escaped his fate.

Arthur’s chances of getting his hands on a decent cuppa have evaporated rapidly, along with all the world’s oceans. For no sooner has he touched down on the planet Earth than he finds out that it is about to be blown up . . . again.

And Another Thing . . . is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone’s favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wayne | 2/16/2014

    " I have read the Hitchhikers book's and found this one very boring. I can't remember the number of times I fell asleep reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 12/25/2013

    " Exceeded my expectations. Not amazing, but enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eirik Gumeny | 11/17/2013

    " While it was kind of nice getting some relatively happy endings for the characters, And Another Thing... mostly just felt like Hitchhiker's fan fiction. Too many references to the original books and all the characters and dialogue felt just a little off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dayna | 10/25/2013

    " Funny and Colfer worked hard to capture the essence of Douglas' work, but the storyline was a bit disjointed. it seemed lazy to put poor Arthur back where he found him by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben Chenoweth | 10/22/2013

    " Well, it's not Douglas Adams, so I shouldn't be too hard on the author. Colfer has done well in getting quite close to Adams in style and even substance, but it still comes across as fan fiction, albeit superior fan fiction. And to be honest, a lot of the "froody" language felt a bit dated to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pri | 10/10/2013

    " a nice return to old friends, even if it wasn't written by adams. it did feel a bit like fan fiction and an encore piece - pulling out all the old jokes for just one more laugh. but still. a decent tribute. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandie Gade | 9/10/2013

    " Not worthy of Adams :-( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick Stengel | 10/2/2012

    " I love Colfer's Artemis Fowl series, and I love the Guide...but this was jury duty. Too many nods to the past, too many deus ex machinas from Zaphod, not enough plot. It took me a long long time to read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MissRichardson | 9/7/2012

    " Cool story, definitely worth a read. Not as great as the originals though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Selso Xisto | 5/24/2012

    " Far better than it has any right to be. Within a few chapters you completely forget you're not reading Adams himself, quite an achievement. Lovely story too, brings a nice sense of closure to the HH saga after the downbeat tone of Mostly Harmless - great work! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 2/18/2012

    " I appreciate the effort, but it is definitely not in a class with the originals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debby | 6/22/2011

    " Finally, part six of the trilogy!!! Eoin Colfer did a great job of carrying on with the tongue-in-cheek spirit of the original. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jimmy | 5/22/2011

    " Save yourselves and burn any copies you come across. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shay | 5/19/2011

    " Definatly true to the Hitchhikers/Douglas Adams Style. Well done Eoin Colfer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 4/3/2011

    " Ça ne veut tout de même pas Douglas Adams, mais c'est honnête... Par contre, j'aimerais dire deux mots au traducteur qui a choisi de ne pas traduire les noms, alors qu'ils sont traduits dans les tomes précédents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffrey | 3/30/2011

    " It's kind of like watching a TV show based on a movie you really liked.

    It's nowhere near as good as the originals, but it has a few laughs (some of them hearty) ... but it also has moments of extreme cringe-ness, when the author tries to be too "Adams-y" and falls flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorddust | 3/11/2011

    " Pretty good job of doing a style similar to Adams, but lacks much of the social commentary. He tries with the planet Nano section but it seems to lack then punch and cynicism of Adams. It is fun, just don't know if this story needed another chapter. "
