Since we're doing the whole series of 5 (arguably 6) books this month, I figured a general appreciation thread was best. I'd be curious if folks started with the books, the radio shows, or one of the film adaptations. For me, it was actually the books which were both my first non-TV/film sci-fi experience (always read non-fic before that) and my first audiobook, old cassette version read by the author. Adam's was a great narrator, also what I liked about Roger Zelazny, my third fiction book series, the authors often read their own works then and you always knew the pronunciations and emphasis were right, and they enjoyed the material.
Favorite Character: Ford Prefect
