    One thought on “Douglas Adams: The First and Lost Tapes”

    1. Was hoping for more of a transcript of the tapes than what this was some author's summary with some quotes. Read like a long magazine article.

    2. This is not a direct transcript of the interview. It's a hybrid blend of a long article and a short biography. It was clearly written after his death, but mostly based on the source material from an interview conducted after the first phase of the radio play had aired twice to modest success.The most interesting details were about the process of writing and rewriting the series for the next format -- radio play, then book, then tv, then Americanized movie. Douglas was writing the first book at t [...]

    3. Interesting, though it doesn't really have much that hasn't already been said in other interviews.The parts that grabbed my attention most were those revolving around television scripts and the process of editing them, and the acknowledgement that what works in one medium doesn't work in another. So, on one hand Adams is very accepting that Hitchhikers can never be identical from one format to another. But on the other, he's disgruntled that the Dr. Who shows produced from his scripts ended up s [...]

    4. I heart Douglas Adams' books. It's so hard to describe his books to non-fans because I can never explain what kind of humor it is. Reading his comments about not assuming that readers are idiots (my words, not his) helped me realize that I can't explain it because it's so different than other comedic approaches out there. Also, as a recent convert to Dr. Who, I enjoyed learning that he was a part of that enterprise.Other reviewers noted that there is nothing new in this interview. That may well [...]

    5. Despite being sourced from tapes misplaced for years with supposedly hours of conversation, there are several bits of repetition among the four sections of this ebook. I found it interesting though but the work seems like a rush job.
