hipdeep: I know a lot of people didn't like the Hollywood movie, though I thought it was faithful to Adams' tone and pacing. If you're among them, then I mean the BBC TV production, which was also wonderful in a different way.

Explications
hipdeep: The movie is a classic fable; the book is completely true to it but also a fascinating postmodern look at the author's relationship to stories.

EMS_24: It's made into a TV-series. The television series was gripping me even more than the book, I could empathize with the characters better. They were natural.

hipdeep: The movie is a magnificent rock-and-roll musical for teenagers; the book is a meditation on aging for the middle-aged. Fortunately, I met both pieces at the right times in my life.
