If you were, like Arthur Dent, unassumingly enjoying a cup of tea in your bathrobe one day and careening through space and time the next, you would likely be comforted to have a guide such as Martin Freeman along for the ride. Freeman played Arthur Dent in the recent big screen adaptation of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, and his narration is pleasant and familiar, even when he's relating adventures with exotic entities and improbable circumstances. Everyone gets distinctive voices, even the computers, which, with the help of sound effects, sound computerized. There can't be too many versions of Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's series, and this is a worthy addition to the pantheon. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
