Publisher's Summary

Nominated for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2008.

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.

Best audiobook in the universe

Chris Barrie really is fantastic voicing this, he somehow can do every characters voice to perfection, complete with comic timing and accents! I hope he voices more books full stop, very talented and compelling to listen to.

I'd read this book when I was younger and I'm glad I decided to revisit it in this format! Can't wait to listen to the next book!

hilarious, deeper and richer than the tv show.

Chris Barrie is an excellent narrator. Does great impressions of Lister and the Cat. Very funny and clever. A more detailed and interesting story than the TV show.

Really entertaining

As a long time fan of the TV series, Chris Barrie's narration pulled me in and kept me in. His impressions of the actors playing Lister, Kryten and The Cat was uncanny, effortless and immersive. It's the prequel to the story we know and love told beautifully. Good value for money, this one!

Smegging Fantastic

This was a great take on red dwarf with some differences to the original tv show. Chris Barrie was incredible in his voice acting for all the characters throughout. Would highly recommend.

Fun way to relieve Red Dwarf

I enjoyed this, although I was a bit annoyed when I realised it was written based on the tv show rather than the other way around. But that’s probably just snobbery and really, it was good fun, made particularly wonderful because Chris Barrie is reading it. Some of the content is very close to the show, some goes off in a different and interesting direction.

Hilarious story, great performance!

I 1000% recommend this book read by Rimmer (Chris Barrie). Absolutely a great listen. I really enjoyed it and I plan to buy another if there is one.

Best discovery of my life

I'm not an audiobook person, but the original actor of my favourite, horrible character on my favourite show, reading the story? What a find! I love the little (and often huge) details the book adds to the half hour plots of the episodes. The story is (if possible) even more fun than the series, and voice impersonator Chris Barrie's performance here is only beaten by his own acting on the show - what a smegging guy!
