The adaptation from the book was very well done. There were only minor changes, but the over all was a pretty direct conversion. I like how the narration was not simply a voice over, they gave you some explanation with animatied sequences that allowed the audience to try to keep up with what was happening. This was almost a requirement because the audience is just as lost as the main Character Arthur Dent. This was great because we learn as Arthur learns. Mos Def once again does an incredible job as does Sam Rockwell and John Malkovitch. If you are a fan of the book you will really enjoy the movie, if you have never read the book, pay close attention or just watch it a couple times... the first time you might not exactly get it, but it is one that is interesting enough to let you watch it more than once and really enjoy it each time.
