I am fan of spoof audiobooks. My favourite was Bleak Expectations (Victorian spoof) but now it’s this The Spaceship II (Sci-fi spoof). I have given it 5 stars because of the absence of canned laughter (I don’t need anyone to tell me when to laugh) but it's very funny even so.

I can find The Spaceship I anywhere? I have looked at the Audible library; BBC website etc. but I haven’t found it. I will appreciate if anyone reading this review tells me where I can get a copy please?
