This tells some of the tv show scripts without any changes. Original voices are a nice touch do you can recognise all the characters.
would have been if it had not been for that loud obnoxious annoying infuriating music that interrupted the mood way way way way way way
who ever thought that music was a good idea should be flogged, and not in a good fun kind of flogging way
Getting to here just how Lister ended up joining the Red Dwarf crew.
All of them! Especially Lister and Holly.
Slime comin' home.
Chis Barrie's narration.
If you're a Red Dwarf fan you will absolutely love how Chris Barrie brings each character's voice to life in the story. You might think that's Craig Charles stopping by to work with Chris, but it's all just a one man show. Incredibly entertaining and worthwhile.
Smegs in space. (It is a show.) :)
You won't regret buying this, even if you've already read the book.
An Excellent storyline read superbly by Chris Barrie (Rimmer)
The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy is another great Science Fiction book/audiobook
I've also listened to Better Than Life and Chris Barrie was exceptional in both audiobooks
Yes, and it was better than I thought it would be
If you like the Red Dwarf TV series then Infinity Welcomes to Careful Drivers and Better Than Life are a MUST. They fill in the gaps from seasons 1-4
I love the back story of Lister going to a Birthday Party and getting so drunk that he ends up on another planet without a way to get back to earth quickly. He is forced to go on Red Dwarf as crew and learns it will take him years on the mining ship to get back to earth. The audio book was way more detailed than the series on why and how Dave joined the Dwarf.
Dave's romance with Christine was explained in more detail and how depressed he was after there relationship was broken off by Christine.
Chris Barrie did and excellent job on all the character voices. He got most of them dead on, especially Lister's.
When Rimmer is self analyzing is own character and motivations behind all his actions. He comes to realize he is one messed up individual that now one likes.
Great story, great performance, Wish they had more on the series.
I liked the idea that the book itself and how it was presented was done in such an off the beaten path fashion. I've skimmed over some of the contents of other people that made reviews over this particular book, and from what I can see it was something else before this. Though offhandedly I cannot recall... but that is irrellevant from a review isn't it?
The best aspect if I had to narrow it into a singular aspect, would be the characters and how they come into the story.
Dear, this is a tough one to pose to a casual listener, I want to answer something but at the same time not give anything away to anyone that bothers to read these.
There is a certain point in the back-end of this that becomes quite interesting, and to narrow this aspect for people that will eventually be first-time listeners and would like to focus upon my favorite point should pay close attention to the Cat.
Well done to the man for bringing life into the characters as someone who takes up the mantle of such a job should want to do.
The book is not something I would call moving, in an emotional or mental aspect, at least not deeply enough to a level that I would classify it as such. However it is enjoyable, and I'm very glad that I used my audible-gift on something that was at such a low price. Or I'd never have discovered something as amusing as this was.
Fantastic voice impersonations.
No, but I've seen every episode of Red Dwarf the series. He gets the other characters and actors spot on. He's freakishly accurate.
A large portion of the book mirrors the series. I'd say the story is on par with the writing for the series. Fun to hear some of the characters' internal dialogue.
good but cut-off
He was very good
The ending... I guess it is a cliff hanger ending..
The book ended in the middle of the story.. It is a very good story so if you want to listen to it you will need to buy the second book Better than life.
