    " Don't panic! You will laugh your feet (and socks) off with this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonia | 2/15/2014

    " British humour and genuinely imaginative fiction after so long. If only I'd read it earlier in life.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Burell | 2/13/2014

    " Seminal is a word easily thrown around. Douglas Adams started a genre with Hitchhiker's Guide. Equal parts Monty Python and Star Trek characters that live on in memorial to an amazing talent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sasha | 1/24/2014

    " This is on of my favorite books ever! douglas adams does a good shop in crafting a funny and interesting. The story is about earth being destroyed and the only person who survived was a everyday english man who happen to be friends with a humanoid alien. As the main character named arthur goes and a anverture meeting many people on the way to find the meaning of life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake Adams | 1/15/2014

    " Gets a little silly and stupid at times, but it a sci-fi classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naterpotaters | 1/6/2014

    " Forced me into playing the interactive fiction experience...nuf said "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin Crow | 1/3/2014

    " This book was very popular and I expected it to be fantastic. I must admit I was disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Segal | 12/10/2013

    " Entertaining all the way through. A classic, and definitely one of my favorites! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nabiya Macpherson | 11/30/2013

    " I could try to write a review of this book, or I could create a super computer to come up with the review for me. Truly an exciting read, though one is left with the niggling feeling of being an idiot. I quite loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 11/26/2013

    " I think this quote perfect describes Adams' writing style: "There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn Christie | 11/26/2013

    " The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a fun book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrienne Hellar | 5/20/2013

    " This was a great book. I can't believe it took me this long to read it. I read more like a comedy book, there were so many times when I just put the book down and laughed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natasha | 12/27/2012

    " Didn't love it, didn't hate it, but it did make me laugh quite a bit. "

    " Infinitely better book than movie! Hahaha, see what I did there? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Beall | 3/4/2012

    " Love it! A fabulous combination of Douglas Adams' great imagination and his dry British sense of humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 2/10/2012

    " So I got to this one WAY late. It's something I should have read ages ago but, for some reason, never picked up. It's a quick read and definitely worth picking up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane Perry | 10/25/2011

    " Would more give this 4.5 stars, but oh well. Delightfully fun book. Has a bit of a slow start, but really gets going about half way through. Not my first time reading this so I don't have too much to say except that anyone who loves British humor should read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikhil Bajpai | 9/19/2011

    " One of the best books I have read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leslie | 8/23/2011

    " Heard such great things about this book. Just not my style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 7/13/2011

    " What can one say? A must read for anyone who enjoys laughing at themselves and at humanity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Herbert | 5/29/2011

    " Outstanding piece of comic science fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mikhail Baskov | 4/22/2011

    " Must-read, at least once in your life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/6/2011

    " I love that this audiobook is the original radio trascript. (not sure about cast)

    It is hard to follow some of the British humor, being a lowly American without being about to read it and think about the line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gortan | 1/18/2011

    " Des Lebensrätsels Lösung ist . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 5/16/2010

    " I listened to this every night for 10 years going to sleep. It is the greatest work of comedic sci-fi ever written, but also attains a much deeper philosophy than most give it credit for. Although the stories are similar, the radio series still stands as the best version of the HHGTTG. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rima | 12/25/2009

    " Fun but short original radio version of the book. Entertaining listening for about 3 hours for fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 7/31/2009

    " Some dated material and lots that isn't in the books. The documentary at the end of the plays was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kandra | 12/15/2008

    " It really interesting and funny. Irony at its best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindi | 10/31/2008

    " Humor. Absurdity. Philosophy. Fantasy. A classic. I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. Read by the author who was great as the reader. "
