The latest audiobook and one that my wife has never heard of. What? I cried. This is one of the most famous science fiction books of all time. It was enjoyable on so many levels and disappointing on so many others. It was fun and entertaining, but I guess I prefer my fiction to take itself seriously and try to find some truth rather than just making fun of it all. And are you sure Douglas Adams isn’t a pen name for Michael Palin or John Cleese or one of the other Monty Python guys? Maybe it was the English accent of the guy reading it, but the whole thing sounded like a shallow imitation of a Monty Python skit. I mean, it had everything but the bloody spam.
