The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy novels are ideally suited to the ear, having been adapted from a BBC radio series. The late Douglas Adams reads his own work with an actor's grace in this version, originally released in 1991. His takes on familiar characters--including Marvin the Paranoid Android, who sounds just like the actor from the radio original. The second novel in the original trilogy, RESTAURANT resolves the quests begun in the first novel--including the search for the question of life, the universe, and everything. (The unlikely answer, fans will recall, is 42.) Fans will find this reading delightful. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
