What to expect

Mostly Harmless is the fifth and final part in Douglas Adams’ much-loved cult classic series, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, read by Martin Freeman.

Arthur Dent hadn’t had a day as bad as this since the Earth had been blown up.

After years of galactic wanderings, Arthur finally settles on the small planet Lamuella and becomes a sandwich maker. Looking forward to a quiet life, his plans are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter.

There’s nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe.

After all – he’s encountered most of them before . . .

Critics Review

  • One of the greatest achievements in comedy. A work of staggering genius

    David Walliams
  • I haven’t known many geniuses in my life. Some brilliantly smart people, but only a tiny handful would I class as geniuses. I would class Douglas, because he saw things differently, and he was capable of communicating the way he saw things, and once he explained things the way he saw them, it was almost impossible to see them the way you used to see them

    Neil Gaiman
  • He had almost a Wodehousian style and some of his phrases and jokes entered our language. He changed the way people spoke

    Stephen Fry
  • Dazzlingly inventive

    Caitlin Moran
