Nominated for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2008. When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk!
After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein".
Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea. Red Dwarf, a clapped out spaceship, was bound for Earth. It never made it, leaving Lister as the last remaining member of the human race, three million light years from Earth, with only a dead man, a senile computer, and a highly evolved cat for company.
They begin their journey home. On the way, they'll break the light barrier. They'll meet Einstein, Archimedes, God, and Norman Wisdom...and discover an alternative plane of reality.

A must for Dwarfers!

Chris Barrie makes this book his own. His knowledge of the characters and his vocal prowess shines through and really animates the narrative. Obviously his Rimmer is first class but his depictions of Lister, Holly, Cat and Kryten are all spot on.

As the previous reviewer noted this book takes some of the plot lines from the TV series and jumbles them up a bit and adds new elements and back story. Whilst this might warp the listeners expectations slightly it in no way lessens the quality of the story. In fact I think it adds to it and delivers a more in-depth exploration of the characters.

An absolute must for any Red Dwarf/Sci-fi/Comedy fan.

Great narration and fun to listen too

Chris Barrie narrates this novel with skill and vocal dexterity. His character voices are spot on faithful to the TV series. This book has most of the plot lines from the Red Dwarf series but more of the back plots are explained, especially the time before Lister joined the space corp. The material is great and the narration is excellent. Sometimes the book deviates from the characters that were developed on the TV series, but put this to one side and accept that this book was the start of the whole Red Dwarf series and all will be well. A good spend of this months credit!

I've been wanting to find this book unabridged for years! Chris Barrie is an awesome narrator, and I wish he read more books. The way he can do the voices of all the RD characters is nothing short of amazing! Thank you, Audible, for making this book available. Let's hope that Better than Life is coming soon!

In Space No One Can Hear You Smeg!!!

A classic Audio Production that needs more like it in the series to be offered on Audible.

Chris Barrie does a spectacular reading and does the impressions of his cast members don to a T.

We would welcome more of this to Audible
