If you make it to The Restaurant At the End of the Universe you can watch the final destruction of the universe over and over again. Our heroes are trying to keep those nasty Vogons from destroying everygthing… but now it`s time for a cup of tea. Arthur Dent, Ford Prefect are the fellow travellers to this restaurant. Zaphod, he of the three arms and two heads is accompanied by Trillian and Marvin the very depressed robot who has stolen many a reader’s heart by now. In this unique restaurant, the food talks to them and begs to be eaten - and thats just one of the strangest things you have ever read before they encounter. Adams was a great writter. He will be missed, but he left us a treasure that emerges from the End of The Earth to the final discovery of the answer to life, the universe, and everything. The tales from Adams are not just science fiction or fantasy. They are the most fun books to read over and over. To see and hear this story over and over is always a great pleasure, and this new set is very well done and produced with only the listener’s pleasure in mind.
