    Avis de l'équipe

    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.

    Description

    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.

    Commentaires

    "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)

    Stephen Fry is so, so good

    This is just so damn British. I’m afraid my enjoyment for this book was enhanced a little too much by nostalgic memories of offbeat britcoms like Blackadder and (especially) Red Dwarf.

    Speaking of influences I can’t help but wonder if—the very American—Futurama was partly inspired by Hitchhikers? Did anyone else notice the striking resemblance between Zapp Brannigan and Zaphod Beeblebrox? I had an image of Zapp in my mind every time Zaphod appeared on the page.

    But back to Britain… when I learned the critical component of the Infinite Improbability Drive was a cup of hot tea… let’s just say it warmed my heart and provoked a spontaneous, gentle smile.

    Apart from being terribly British, it’s also dreadfully amusing and easy-to-read. I loved it.

    As for Stephen Fry’s narration of this audio-version --- *sigh* --- the man is a genius and has remained consistently on my list of “Fantasy Dinner Party Invitees” for the last 15 years so—obviously I would like to hack into the Audible website and somehow assign a sixth star in the category of “performance”.

    Hitchhiker never fails to entertain

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not the sort of person who recommends things to my friends - they're just so finicky. However, should I find out that a friend is a Hitchhiker's fan AND a Stephen Fry fan AND they ask me if it was any good I'd tell them, "Yes, yes and yes!"

    The performance of this story that I know so well brought me new laughs and enjoyment.

    What a shame the story reminded me of how old I am by reminding me of how old it is.

    I have lived the story

    The Voice of Stephen Fry suites this story perfectly! It lel me fall to a story and feel as I where there, near Arthur and Ford.

    "Mice, they paid for earth." Mind Blowing.

    Love to Love it, Stephen Fry made it better, as a matter of fact, he is undoubtedly the best at these sort of entertainment.

    My Memories have been Fry'ed...

    always loved Douglas Adams as a young Adult and was meaning to re read the trilogy (in four parts of course) in any case.

    this was well worth the buy as Stephen Fry really does an outstanding performance, just bringing the book to life. This must be the best version of this work in my opinion, much netter than reading the book myself or watching the movie.

    Always a winner

    I read this book when I was 20. Over a decade later, I thought it was about time to re-read it. So, with a puzzle in front of me, I began listening to this funny story once again. I just did it to feel good, to laugh, and to reminisce.

    Feeling at one with the origins of nerdy tropes

    It's great to finally hear the sources of so many legendary nerdy tropes such as 42. Douglas Adams has such a wonderful and non-conventional method of storytelling. That sees the narrative hop-skip and jumping all over spacetime in a quest for imaginative narrative glee.

    There's a certain child-like wonder that comes with experiencing a story like this, full of incomprehensible things.

    Fantastically delivered by Mr Fry, who never fails at aural engagement.

    great sorry. bad audio quality

    the story is a brilliant hilarious mockery of philosophy that is magnificently portrait by Stephen Fry.

    Unfortunately, the performance looses points due to the underperforming sound editing team. the sound falls out always at the beginning of the chapter and at the end. very unfortunate.
    the entire story misses approximately 2 minutes which ruins the point of even buying it.
    very sad

    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

    Some jokes may be anti-Christian / anti-religious!

    Some jokes may be anti-Christian and/or anti-religious! I am returning the book. I have read that some movie with the same title can be also offensive for Christians.

    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.

    eine verrückte Reise :)

    Ein tolles Hörbuch! Im Original kommen noch mehr die besonderen Charaktere rüber (mich hatten die teils empörten Rezensionen über die eigenwillige deutsche Variante mit Christian Ulmen abgeschreckt). Einziger Wermutstropfen an dem Hörbuch hier: es ist nicht so einfach zu verstehen im Englischen (bei Störgeräusche wenn man z.B. unterwegs ist, ist das noch schwieriger). Aber das ist eher ein Problem von mir ;)
