Beschreibung von Audible

Master of comedy Stephen Fry delivers a brilliant audiobook narration of the best-selling novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, written by Douglas Adams. Arthur Dent is a very British man having a very bad day. He discovers his friend is an alien and he’s taken off earth just as it’s destroyed to make way for a galaxy highway. To make matters worse, he hasn’t even had his morning cup of tea yet. This ingeniously constructed story takes a humorous look at how something as precious as Earth isn’t always appreciated until it’s gone. A lighthearted and enjoyable listen. Available now from Audible.

Inhaltsangabe

One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun, and the Galaxy is a very strange and startling place.

Kritikerstimmen

"By turns authoritative as the narrator, bemused as Arthur Dent, deadpan as Ford Prefect and manic as Zaphod Beeblebrox, he [Stephen Fry] makes an altogether appropriate reader . . . The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" ( The Times)

A perfect match

Fry and Adams - what a marvellous combination. Douglas Adams' classic literally comes to life through his friend's vivid, funny and clever recitation. A joy from start to end, a story so peculiar and fascinating it flows seamlessly into the reader's mind. Highly recommended!

Amazing

This book might be even better as an audio book than as a traditional one. The narrator is SO GOOD. Liked the Stanley Parable? You'll LOVE this

Hervorragende Science-Fiction Satire

Ich denke, über den Inhalt des Buches braucht nicht mehr viel gesagt zu werden. Douglas Adams liefert eine grandios-komische Beschreibung des "wahren" Lebens in der Galaxis.

Stephen Fry liefert als Sprecher ganz hervorragende Arbeit ab. Er gibt dem Erzähler einen sarkastisch-ironischen Unterton, der vorzüglich zur Geschichte passt. Ich finde es sehr Schade, dass er die übrigen Bücher der Reihe nicht auch gelesen hat.

A story not quite unrelated to heavy laughter

A very interestingly told story about the end of the earth, a ghastly depressed robot and a mostly mad galactic president.
10/10 is my personal rating.

It was very nice.

It it a nice story, but it is confusion in some parts. I recomment an IQ of at least 1200.

A good read

The style and spoken words are filled with a healty grain of cynism, which makes every second worth listening and pondering to.
