One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just began, and the Galaxy is a very strange and startling place.
I read the Hitchhiker’s Guide a long while back, I mean the actual book(s). We borrowed the complete works and breezed through them, then the movie came out. It wasn’t all that great and still awesome somehow. Then I thought hey, I’ll listen to the audio version during my commute. I was pleased as punch, I loved Stephen Fry he was such an awesome narrator, bringing everything to life so well. There’s not really much you can say about this classic. The audio is just awesome! If you’ve never read this one, go get it, it’s a must, so many quotable lines going on here. Pure crazy, random, genius!
