"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." - douglas adams

Have you read his biography? ALSO, the narrator on Little Big Planet is also the same narrator for the HHG movie Wink but yes I am envious of your possible ownership of a leatherbound collection

You mean Stephen Fry? He was originally half of a 1980s comedy double act called Fry and Laurie, his partner being Hugh Laurie (our very own Dr Gregory House and the dad from the Stuart Little movies). Fry and Laurie met when they were both undergraduates at Cambridge University (where Douglas Adams also went).

Unfortunately, Douglas Adams passed away before HHG the movie was released....but yes, it is Stephen Fry...

Never seen the movie. After growing up with the original radio series and then reading the books (which came after the radio series) and then enjoying the 1980s TV adaptations (which had the same main actors as the radio series) I couldn't bring myself to watching a movie that differed so much from the earlier productions. I simply cannot imagine Marvin not looking like this:

Ok, other than that the book rocks my socks! I am almost done. So worth the money!!!

Agreed, I am about done with mine too. I think I paid like $8 for it, cheapest book I have bought in a while and a great read. Fun if you love the story as well.
