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!

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

Chris Barrie makes this book his own. His knowledge of the characters and his vocal prowess shines through and really animates the narrative. Obviously his Rimmer is first class but his depictions of Lister, Holly, Cat and Kryten are all spot on.
As the previous reviewer noted this book takes some of the plot lines from the TV series and jumbles them up a bit and adds new elements and back story. Whilst this might warp the listeners expectations slightly it in no way lessens the quality of the story. In fact I think it adds to it and delivers a more in-depth exploration of the characters.
An absolute must for any Red Dwarf/Sci-fi/Comedy fan.

Chris Barrie narrates this novel with skill and vocal dexterity. His character voices are spot on faithful to the TV series. This book has most of the plot lines from the Red Dwarf series but more of the back plots are explained, especially the time before Lister joined the space corp. The material is great and the narration is excellent. Sometimes the book deviates from the characters that were developed on the TV series, but put this to one side and accept that this book was the start of the whole Red Dwarf series and all will be well. A good spend of this months credit!

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!

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.
