This audio-book is a edited version of Grants novel, which was converted into a script for the TV show. Unlike those other sci-fi shows of the same ilk, this one does not require you to have any background knowledge of the charectors or show tomake it a enjoyable listen. The plot invovles the crew getting pulled into an alternative universe where everything is backwards - the spelling, the speech, even the way people move. They land on an alternative version of earth, where Krytan and Rimmer succed by becoming 'The Forward Brothers'. It all leads to a hilarious punchup in a pub which, while Grant does not have visual aid to help him along, still manages to be funny. A must for anyone who has seen and enjoyed the TV episode (mainly because it clears a few things up), this is something of a rarity - it manages to have a believible and coherent plot without sacraficing an once of humour.
