By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 Jan. 2003
Format: Paperback
Red Dwarf is the funniest science fiction book I have ever read, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters. First there is Lister; he celebrated his 25th birthday by taking part in a Monopoly-based pub crawl on earth and somehow ended up stuck on Mimas, one of Saturn's moons. He desperately wants to return to earth but cannot raise the funds; tiring of living inside a storage locker and stealing taxis to earn money, he decides to sign up for service with the Space Corps and jump ship as soon as he is back on his home planet. First Technician Alfred J. Rimmer is a truly remarkable and hilarious personality. Rimmer is basically in charge of keeping the vending machines operating on the ship Red Dwarf, and Lister finds himself working under and bunking with this incredibly strange and rather pitiful underachiever. Rimmer is the proverbial born loser, failing at virtually everything he does. He desperately wants to pass the astronavigation exam and become an officer, and he works incredibly hard at preparing for the test despite the fact he has already failed it 11 times (actually, two of those times he got an X for unclassified, such as the time he wrote "I am a fish" 500 times on each answer sheet after panicking and convincing himself he did not actually exist). Rimmer's preparation consists of establishing incredibly exact, inclusive schedules for studying; the problem with this approach is that his constant revisions of the schedule take up all of his preparation time, and he usually ends up cramming three months' of study into a few hours just before the exam begins. Lister annoys Rimmer to no end. As fate would have it, an explosion ends up killing everyone on board Red Dwarf.Read more ›

I first read this book about 10 or so years ago and it still reamins my favourite book ever.
The book follows closely to the BBC2 TV series with some extra bits that they wouldn't have been able to film. (budget reasons) I won't go into the details of the plot as lots of other people on this page have do so already, but I will mention the easy to read style of the book and the many laugh out lould moments.
If youv'e never read a red dwarf novel but like the TV show, then I suggest reading this now, you don't know what your missing. If your not a fan of the TV show then this book might change your mind. Excellent

How to adequately rave about this book? This book is an absolute rival to the television show, and even out-classing the series in some ways. Not only funny, the first Red Dwarf book takes time to really expand on the TV character's personalities: neuroses, startling moralities, good qualities, obsessions, and all. This is a must read for all smeg-heads everywhere, and in general a darn good sci-fi read.

For the past eight years I have been a dedicated reader of Sci-Fi, beforethis I had a very short concentration span and very rarely got into a goodbook. The Red Dwarf series taught me that not all books are hard to followand that even I couldn't put a good book down once in a while. I was a bigfan of the TV series so the books were a natural progression and I wasn'tdissapointed, the two authors (Rob Grant and Doug Naylor) quite obviouslywork exceptionally well together and have produced the funniest series ofsci-fi books since Douglas Adams Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy. In factI could safely say that together they continue the genius that was DouglasAdams. The concepts and characters that make up Red Dwarf are fantastic,perfectly thought out and expertly developped. Things like Better ThanLife, Cat, Polymorph - in fact I am going to stop there because I could goon and name everything, but it is all brilliant stuff which immerses yourinquisitive minds into a world of comedy, claustrophobia, space and smeg!

The book is exactly as expected and at a reasonable price. However, it was sold as very good condition and there is a rip in the back cover. I don't think ripped covers fit a 'very good' description. In all other respects, it is fine and as it's a replacement for a well - loved, frequently read, dog - eared copy of the omnibus that is now literally falling apart, I don't mind a few imperfections.

By Lis on 5 Aug. 2005
Format: Paperback
It's not quite the same as the TV sitcom it spawned, but this book is quality.
It's not laugh-a-minute stuff, some of it is even almost poignant, but it's a roaring good read and you won't regret buying this one. A book to read, put away on a bookshelf, and to return to a few years later, when it will be a delight to re-discover.

There aren't many books that I have read and re-read so many times I can't remember. There are even fewer books that have made me laugh out loud. This book is one of the rare ones that does both. It's got the balance of description, plot, pace and laughs just right. And to top it off, you don't need to be a Red Dwarf fan to enjoy it.
