"It's Rimmer doing Red Dwarf, Of course it's great!"
I finished this today, having not read this book in about a decade. I'm so glad I'd forgotten almost all of it, because hearing it all over again with the voice of Chris Barrie was just wonderful!
He gets all the intonations just spot on, except, ironically, for Rimmer, which he has a tendency to over-compensate and make a little high-pitched, to disassociate it from his own voice. However, it's infrequent and doesn't detract from the experience.
The story is as good as it ever was, aside from a few misses in the future-tech front (the ships photo development lab for example!) but somehow it adds to the charm of the book, capturing the utter mundanity of life, even hundreds of years from now. And anyway, their comedy writers, not Michio Kaku!
The only problem is this was my free download and now I'll actually have to fork out for the sequel!!
