Excellent Sci-Fi, but...

if you go into these books expecting something to match the TV series you will be sadly disappointed. Instead clear your mind of any preconceptions about Red Dwarf and approach this book as pure sci-fi. You'll find it fascinating, imaginative and not without its humorous moments. But don't expect the series to translate into prose literature, it just doesn't work like that. Instead treat the literary Dwarf as a continuum unto itself and you'll find it amazing, especially when read by the multi-talented Chris Barrie.

Very funny.

What a brilliant book. Despite stealing some of the jokes and plotlines from the TV series, it really feels quite original. The darker take on Better Than Life is the highlight of the book, especially when it concerns Rimmer.

Since this is the novel Red Dwarf universe, some of your expectations will be broken, as Rob and Doug really mix things up. It is much darker in tone than the series on a whole, alterted characterisation and twists may take you by suprise.

The main reason to download this is just to hear Chris Barrie. The man is a genius. You'll sometimes forget it's him, and become convinced Craig Charles and Robert Llewellyn have joined in the reading.

All in all, very funny, and well worth a download. Great follow up to Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers, would love to see Backwards and The Last Human added to the site soon!
