Description

Fans of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - your long wait for a successor is over! 

The fate of the world lies with one man: Bip Plunkerton. 

Talentless scientist and frequent drinker at the Empty Goat, young Bip Plunkerton will follow in his father’s footsteps as a volunteer...footsteps that have yet to return from the wilds of the wide world outside. Traverse the harsh weather of the formidable ice plains, navigate the boiling sea, and suffer the ravaging heat of the bone desert. Bip’s impossible task, continually thwarted by the semi-corporeal Mr. Random, is to warn the rest of the world of the coming doom of the Massive Ball of Death hurtling through space. 

Will the last volunteer be any more successful than the first? Will Bip save planet Bersch from a fate set into motion millennia before? Probably not, but we can likely drag this question out for a couple more audiobooks, though. Right?

Love this book

I had read this book before the audio, but it is even better in audio. I can not wait for the next book to come to audio!

An amazing book with the perfect choice of narrator.

One of the first audiobooks I listened to was The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The writing style you have for it captures a lot of the feel and the narrators cadence and technique does a lot to add to the experience. It is kind of like listening to a favorite book again for the first time.

Loved this book!

The style of writing reminds me of Neil Gaiman, Terry Prachett, and Douglas Adams with a touch of Guy Ritchie for the seedy back alley characters that are just awesome. Thanks Steve, can't wait for more!

Good Fun!

A good fun read. The narrator brings a touch more mirth with his tone. A bit science fiction, a bit fantasy. You can feel the loving influence of Terry Pratchett. There is absolutely beautiful world/universe building that I want to see more of. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
