I read the book before listening, and I'm happy to say that Mr. Miller's narrative aplomb helped me to absorb even more than I had from the text! Even when the text's complexity and detail hits Mach 12 (this one goes past 11), the narrator's commitment to character voice & personality delineation keeps me from spinning lost out into the stars. As a performer and a music fan, I don't mind admitting that the story hit me in almost all of the feels. Narration and novel combine to make the whole experience well worth the trip!

Hitchhikers Guide is one of my favorite reads, it has clever witty dialogue, great character development and is always fun. Space Opera tries very hard to imitate Adams wit and descriptiveness but lacks cohesiveness and the "relatable absurdity" of Douglas Adams descriptions of his crazy universe and aliens. The characters were not people you would ever want to meet in real life. The craziness of the aliens in Space Opera just seem bizarre and filled with random weirdness, but they are not humorous in any way that I could see. I found myself zoning out through much of the book. Maybe I was hoping for too much when the reviews compared it to Hitchhikers Guide.
