Listener Opinions

    " Not as funny as the rest because I felt Adams's ghost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al'xae | 2/12/2014

    " Listened to this in audio format, it was touching (esp the obituaries from Doug Adams' friends) and funny and interesting... I wouldn't recommend this to people who aren't familiar of Mr. Adams' other writing because it is a compilation of unfinished work. If you are unfamiliar with the style and context I think it would be rather disorienting (more-so than a normal Adams novel) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leila | 2/12/2014

    " Tidbits from Douglas Adam's three macs and glorious stacks of papers are neatly compiled into this perfectly random tribute to his writing career. Stories include both fiction and non- Even Zaphod Beeblebrox makes another appearance. You'll laugh your arse off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/12/2014

    " Given that it is a compilation of unpublished, unfinished, and unknown works of Adams, it is ok. Not nearly as good as his other works, but the first 1st section was great. The 2nd was ok, and the 3rd, an unfinished manuscript for possibly another Dirk Gently or Hitchhikers Guide novel, was confusing. If you are a die hard fan of Adams, then read it, otherwise, it can be skipped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clyde | 2/6/2014

    " A very interesting collection of essays. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 2/1/2014

    " Fascinating reading his ideas about the future of computing and seeing how right he was. Definitely an amazing tribute to one of the greatest writers to every walk the earth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shraddha Gupta | 1/30/2014

    " The five for sentimental reasons. Love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 1/16/2014

    " Some really really great snippets. I especially like the transcript of his speaches on evolution, computers and the puppies in New Mexico "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 1/15/2014

    " Really sad to see an intelligent author such as Douglas Adams get religion so wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Ford | 1/14/2014

    " An enjoyable collection of writings of very funny man. I could have done without the partial unfinished novel, it was too partial and too unfinished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vojtech Podhorny | 1/13/2014

    " great collection of the beautiful mess left on D. Adam's harddrive. Only he could have such gems hidden in there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Halldór Thorgeirsson | 12/31/2013

    " This collection of material from Douglas Adams is interesting and some provide insight into the person of the author. Nothing earth shaking but nice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelnorelation | 12/7/2013

    " This book literally changed my life. I can't say that about many books, so there you go. So long, DNA, and thanks for being so awesome someone figured a bunch of crap from your hard drive was worth publishing because it changed my life for the better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/11/2013

    " My only complaint about this is that it's mostly just articles/letters/etc written by Adams. The unfinished novel is only 100 pages or less. Some of the articles are hysterical, others are tedious, but it's definitely worth reading if you're a fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 3/12/2013

    " I love some of Adams' short pieces in this. He should have written more short stories and non-fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melly | 2/12/2013

    " An amalgamation of stories, articles, and other selected writings of Douglas Adams. A great window into the life and work of this iconic writer. Contains a version of his final, unfinished novel which would have been the third in the Dirk Gently serious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Brugge | 11/25/2012

    " Snippets and interviews and notes and a partial book. Warm, insightful, hilarious and ending too abruptly, like Adams' life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susheel John | 9/15/2012

    " Great insight into the life of the man. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 8/28/2012

    " Obviously, not being a complete book, this leaves you wishing there was more, much more. Obviously this is not going to happen, but I still enjoyed reading this, if only to see where Douglas Adams was heading when he died. Such a great talent, such a great loss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 5/27/2012

    " A wonderful tribute to an extraordinary author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki | 3/28/2012

    " A great collection of a truly intelligent (though procrastinating) man. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Wood | 3/11/2012

    " A fantastic collection of tidbits of Adam's writing, tributes from friends, and of course the beginnings of another Dirk Gently novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brett | 3/9/2012

    " If you're expecting anything on the same level as the Hitchhiker series, you will be severly disappointed. Still worth the read if you're an Adams fan though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bmkeene | 1/25/2012

    " A fitting finale to a peculiarly wonderful writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yasemin | 11/16/2011

    " Although I love Douglas Adams' style and have enjoyed most of his other books, I didn't like this one as much as the previous ones. But maybe it has to do with the fact that he had already passed away when I read it, and it felt sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luke | 10/1/2011

    " Unfinished novel, but every bit as funny as The Hitchhiker's Guide or Dirk Gently books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 9/30/2011

    " sad day when the world lost Douglas Adams "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 4/22/2011

    " As brilliantly hilarious as his original series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 4/10/2011

    " While I really like Douglas Adams' writing, this book seemed like just a collage of his works. Good content, but not do cunning order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 3/28/2011

    " It was like a visit from an old friend. I'm not sure why I didn't pick it up a long time ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 3/21/2011

    " While the titular story is more of a collection of incomplete thoughts, which sadly could have come together as another amazing novel, I really enjoyed reading the Life and Universe part of the book, especially when Adams quips about technology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alejandra | 2/24/2011

    " Yo quería saber que pasó con el medio gato.
    Extraño a Douglas Adams :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avenash | 1/20/2011

    " This is not an actual novel but a series of short stories/interviews by Douglas Adams. It is great for light reading and shows what an awesome and funny character Adams were. R.I.P "
