In Life, the Universe and Everything, the third title in Douglas Adams' blockbusting sci-fi comedy series read by actor Martin Freeman, 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.
Praise for audio edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
'By turns authorative as the narrator, bemused as Arthur Dent, deadpan as Ford Prefect and manic as Zaphod Beeblebrox' The Times

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.
