Publisher Description

Read by Martin Freeman, in Life, the Universe and Everything, the third title in Douglas Adams' blockbusting sci-fi comedy series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Arthur Dent finds himself enlisted to prevent a galactic war.

In consequence of a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot possibly get any worse, they suddenly do. He discovers that the galaxy is not only mind-bogglingly big and bewildering, but also that most of the things that happen in it are staggeringly unfair.

Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown . . .

Follow Arthur Dent's galactic (mis)adventures in the rest of the trilogy with five parts: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, and Mostly Harmless.

superMedSec ,

better than Restaurant at the End of the Universe's reading

Martin Freeman reading this book is better than RATEOTU, but still not as good as Stephen Fry's reading of HHGTTG. Freeman's voice is listenable-to but his accents do fade in and out for the different characters, but it is funny and enjoyable. Would have preferred Fry to read them all. Entertaining, and of course a great book.

Same thing here

Slartibartfast’s voice is slightly off but Wawbagger the infinitely prolonged is perfect, especially when a child says exactly the same thing (maybe the child WAS Wawbagger the infinitely prolonged🤯😀 (Marvin is also pretty good))
