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.

I'd love to give it five stars but I can't. Great story and well read but someone has decided to put the theme tune in between the chapters. At the end of one, and then at the start of the next. Completely unnecessary, and ruins the listen as it's so much louder than the vocals.

Beautifully read but I found the sound affects off putting. It didn't need them at all to be engaging. Eddie 's voice is soothing though

Just...awful. I love Pride and Prejudice, and I love zombie themed things, so I was really looking forward to this book. But they don't mix. Maybe if it was a continuation of the original story, it could work. But it doesn't. The author's basically taken the Bennett girls, sent them to China to train, then plopped them back in the original book, just with conversational changes and some added fight scenes. I hate the way the Chinese master's name is pronounced, only slightly more than the fact that he was invented in the first place.
