With thirty years of the audio play safely under the towel I was wondering how many times fellow towel appreciators have read/listened to the story? I've read it far too many times as it's one of the few books in english you're guranteed to find in dingy hostels around Europe. There was also the time a few years back that I was stuck with a sony mp3 player (I didn't buy it - it was a gift!) which my friend pre-loaded with the entire seasons of the audio play. As I was cycling through the baltics I'd no choice but to listen to it repeatedly for weeks on end. They were good times! ;o) Bear in mind the first person to say 42 times will have their brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick!
