Description

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.

Finally!

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

Simply OUTSTANDING.....

Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers

Narration by Chris Barre Himself who Played Rimmer in the Original BBC TV Show, does an unbelievable job, and despite only him Narrating he does the voices of Holley, Lister, Cat and of Course Rimmer beautifully.

"Red Dwarf" serves as a companion novel to the British science-fiction television series produced by Grant Naylor Productions, by Doug Naylor and Rob Grant.

The plot of the book loosely adapts episodes from the first 2 Seasons of the BBC Show, and uses the novel format to explore the characters backstory more than they ever could in the half-hour episodes while expanding existing scenes far beyond the means available to them on the television series' budget and runtime.

Red Dwarf Started in 1989 and just finished production on Series XII Releasing in 2017

Fans of the show will enjoy this, though they should read it after watching the series as it contains spoilers, and reenacted scenes from the Show with more details, and it will appeal to those who enjoy similar works such as

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
And "Dr. Who"

Highly, Highly Recommended..

A great Sci-Fi parody classic.

If you liked "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy", "Airplane" the movie, Naked Gun or anything like them you'll probably like this too. If you hate them you'll probably hate this. I loved this series, I loved this book when I got it as a kid as one of my first science fiction books from the sci-fi book club in the mail. When I first read it I didn't realize it was parody until I was well into it. This was probably my first exposure to parody sci-fi/fantasy stories and warped me. With Chris Barie's, one of the actors from the TV show based on this book reading it is a real delight since he is very talented at doing different voices for the characters. A must buy for parody and Red Dwarf fans.
Lister gets frozen for 3 millions years to save him from a radiation leak on the mining ship Red Dwarf and ends up as the last living human in the universe. With a creature that evolved from his pet cat and the hologram program of his dead annoying roommate Rimmer and a senile computer of the ship named Holly he decides to turn the ship around and find out what happened to humanity in 3 million years and survive with his sanity intact.

Must Listen for RD Fans!

Totally hilarious, just like the show in its glory days. Chris Barrie, Rimmer on the show, is the perfect narrator. Of course he can do Rimmer, but his impressions of Lister, the Cat, Holly and Kryten are spot on as well. This isn't just a novelization tie-in, this is a very enjoyable story in its own right. Do not miss!

audio control

You'll need to stay on top of audio control. Whenever​ the theme song and introductions come into play. If you are using a pair of headsets or close to the speakers.

If you didn't see the BBC show...

I'm guessing if you were a fan of the old BBC space spoof this book would be awesome. Having not seen it, the book doesn't stand well on its own. Clever plot idea but stretched out too far and the jokes are over done. I found myself fast forwarding to try and get to the end I knew was coming.

For serious fans only.

If you're a fan of the series, it's a great review of things, and has some enjoyable bits to it. If you're not, there's a lot not to recommend--in particular, the chapters are bookended by an instrumental rendition of the show's theme...done at the end and beginning of the chapter. Yes, this means that you have to listen to it twice, back to back, in order to get to the next bit of the story. Still, if you're a fan, it's worth enduring some rough patches to enjoy the story.

Helped if you watched the TV series

My wife and I loved the Red Dwarf television series so this review is very biased. This audiobook's content actually filled in some of the gaps in the storyline of the TV series so I'm not sure how this book will appeal to anyone who is not already familiar with the series. The narrator actually played Rimmer in the series and voices the other characters impeccably like those on TV.

Not a very good story, but a wonderful performance

The one star is for the book. The narrator gets five.

I would only recommend this book to fans of the television show for the sake of hearing the narration by Mr. Barrie, which is the best reading of a fictional work I have heard, in terms of acting skill. He precisely impersonates the other actors he starred with on the BBC program. It is truly impressive.

But I found the story to be a disappointment, so I wouldn't recommend this one to those unfamiliar with the show.
