This story pretty much wraps up the radio series and does a good job of of tying up most of the loose ends.
My only complaint was that it felt a bit rushed, as though it had been squeezed into 4 episodes when really 5 or 6 would have been better. But this did not detract from my enjoyment of the story.
I would say that if you have listened to the other parts of the story then give this a go, it's worth it if only to hear all the plot lines bought to a finish.
If you've not listened to the previous parts it will be confusing and I'd recommend listening t the other parts first.
Brilliant stuff, and about time.
Part of the attraction of listening to this is not just the assured performances of the 'original' cast, (Geoffery McGivern and Simon Jones are completely at home as Ford and Arthur) but recognising the other less central characters and the familiar voices behind them.
The last phase not only manages to neatly tie up all loose ends from all other series, but also be a less downbeat finale than the book was. To get the benefit of this, though, you have to listen to the Hollywood happy ending which is unexpected to those familiar with the book. It works, but takes a leap of faith to hope that it is as the author would want it.
Nice to hear Douglas Adams one more time, too.
Over all, a joy to behold.
That said, I have to say that it's the only HHGTTG book/audio book/tv episode/film that I think I've audibly chuckled at - I've loved them all (okay, apart from the film) but Colin the Security Robot was so funny it caused a collection of snorts and giggles as I tried to contain myself whilst listening to it on the old iPod.
