Just keep laughing and nobody will get hurt! Author Douglas Adams kidnapped an audience and held them hostage for 90 minutes at London's Almeida Theatre. The audience members were subjected to extremely hot August temperatures and Adams's dramatic solo performances of excerpts and scenes from his wildly funny, wildly popular books The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, and Life, the Universe and Everything. LEARN how to fly! HEAR about Arthur and the Irrational Sofa! GROAN at Marvin's escapade with the Frogstar Battle Robot! Adams may have a cult following, but it's the happiest cult around, thanks to his inventive, absurd, and impish humor which comes through fully in this release. Download and start listening now!

    " Douglas Adams reading, or performing, sections from his books. This gives an idea of how the author thought these passages and his characters would sound. And they sound a lot like the radio plays and tv show. Good for the enthusiasm of the performance, and lots of screaming. "

    " Very entertaining. Now I'm really interested in reading the whole series. I wasn't aware this was just a reading of select passages, but I don't think it spoiled too much for me. "

    " I enjoyed this very much. The title was a little misleading as Mr. Adams only reads a few excerpts from the book (75 minutes). The performance is quite entertaining however, I would recommend it to anyone but I imagine it is more enjoyable having read the books previously. "
