Science Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1990

This classic of science fiction comedy hasn't lost its charm in the years since it first came out. Its improbable tale is endlessly inventive as it gently pokes fun at science fiction, travel (and travel guides), high culture, bureaucracy, and a dozen other topics. The romp across the galaxy starts with the destruction of Earth, and things get wilder from there. Douglas Adams's impeccable sense of timing and flexible voice combine to multiply the humor of his writing. He brings morose robots and dim two-headed galactic presidents to life with equal ease. His fun with language evokes Lewis Carroll by way of Monty Python. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
