Publisher's Summary

If you’ve done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe? Which is exactly what the crew of the Heart of Gold plan to do. There’s just the small matter of escaping the Vogons, avoiding being taken to the most totally evil world in the Galaxy and teaching a space ship how to make a proper cup of tea. And did anyone actually make a reservation?

Martin Freeman ruined this book series for me

Any additional comments?

The interpretation of the characters I found really off, especially following Stephen Fry's interpretations for the first book. While I've read the books previously and thoroughly enjoyed them - the story is brilliant - Martins reading put me off and i couldnt even get through it.

marvelous, magnificent, mostly epic. This is one of the best sci-fi and comedy stories ever made.

Not as good as HHGTTG

Considering that I wished HHGTTG would never end, I found myself wishing away most of the tedious minutes of The Restaurant...Characters I didn't much care for, a story that never seemed to be going anywhere, and attempts at humour which all too often fell flat. Martin Freeman's narration was amusing, but not a patch on Stephen Fry's Hitchhiker's Guide. Not sure if I will bother with the next in the series, in case this ship is on a downward trajectory. .

Great book, narrator made me scream

What did you like best about The Restaurant at the End of the Universe? What did you like least?

Like all the 'Hitchhikers' books, this is great. But Martin Freeman's voice when doing the characters drove me crazy. When he was speaking as Zaphod's older ghost relative, the screeching went on and on, and made me give up listening for a while - in the end, I could only continue by fast-forwarding.

It's hard to do good narration while also doing different voices for characters. Freeman's voice is good as a normal story-teller. But someone should've stopped him, cos he made me hate this audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Terrible, screechy voice characters

Martin Freeman can’t compare to Stephen Fry

Of course a fantastic story, but I wish Stephen Fry was narrating! Martin Freeman is terrible in comparison.

Great, if it is your cup of tea

The intricate and obscure story continues. The second book may be less grabbing than the first but if this is your thing you will find this an engaging listen. The voice actor maintains the pace of the story well thought.
