Adams, who is never funnier than when he's examining "the fundamental interconnectedness of all things," runs amuck in a world in which special monks worry about things like the color of the desert (so the rest of us don't have to), and detective Dirk Gently is available to investigate a murder when he's not out searching for missing cats. Adams is a fine, if fast, reader, and you have to figure no one knows better how he wants things pronounced, what timing he had in mind for the snappy replies (usually immediate and deadpan), and how to make everybody sound just one camel's hump smarter by using his natural English accent, leaving you, the listener, to do double takes and hit rewind just to make sure he really said what you thought you heard.
