I thought it was overrated. Full of tired old SF ideas and the halfwit author claimed that it wasn't SF!

I've just picked up a hardback copy of Red Dwarf's Better Than Life. So I think I will be reading that. (Again, love it) Smiling

Same here, but it was Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers back in the day. I still have the book in the loft, well thumbed. Smiling

Indeed I read that one first.
 
Both great expansions of the Dwarfverse
 
Last Human & Backwards were ok too, but not as good as the original 2.
 
Heard mucha about the new Dwarf TV series (2 series I believe)

A long time since I read it. Can't really remember detail, but I remember being disappointed by it.

I think your memory is accurate, I'm 2/3s in & it's doing nothing for me (on the plus side at least it's quite a short book Smiling )
