    Tim Scott's inventive and hilarious science fiction novels are unlike any others. In a strange world where living refrigerators exist in herds like wild animals, Seattle has become a coddled city beset by irrational fears. Enter ex-cop Huckleberry, who's about to see his life take a turn for the weird when he stumbles into a dangerous conspiracy and the fridges become his only friends.

    What would have made Love in the Time of Fridges better?

    Not writing it


    What could Tim Scott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Cut out every word between the first and lat one.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of George Wilson?

    Some one that could not make a sound


    Any additional comments?

    The book was just boring and stupid! Infact I think it makes the listener stupider.

    Two years ago, October “Toby” Daye believed she could leave the world of Faerie behind. She was wrong. Now she finds herself in the service of Duke Sylvester Torquill, sharing an apartment with her Fetch, and maintaining an odd truce with Tybalt, the local King of Cats. It’s a delicate balance - one that’s shattered when she learns that an old friend is in dire trouble. Lily, Lady of the Tea Gardens, has been struck down by a mysterious, seemingly impossible illness, leaving her fiefdom undefended. Struggling to find a way to save Lily and her subjects, Toby must confront her own past....

    Story
    (254)

    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.

    If you could sum up Red Dwarf in three words, what would they be?

    good but cut-off


    What does Chris Barrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending... I guess it is a cliff hanger ending..


    Any additional comments?

    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.
