Dave Lister has finally found his way back to the planet Earth. Which is good. What's bad is that time isn't running in quite the right direction. And if he doesn't get off the planet soon, he's going to have to go through puberty again. Backwards. Still, his crewmates have come to rescue him - they consist of a robot with a hyperactive guilt chip, a creature who evolved from cats, and a dead man. And if they fail, Lister will carry on growing younger until he becomes a baby, then an embryo, and finally, he'll meet a very sticky end indeed. Rejoin the Red Dwarf's trepid band of space zeroes - Lister, Rimmer, Kryten, Holly and the Cat - as they continue their epic journey through frontal-lobe knotting realities where none dare venture but the bravest of the brave, the boldest of the bold, the feeblest of the feeble-minded.… (més)

Despite what the title says, it's the 3rd Red Dwarf book. The continuity of the last book to this book is much better.

The main story is taken from an episode of the TV Show and expanded. In this case they do a great job. They bring back 'Ace' Rimmer, and the gelfs, and it's quite enjoyable. I'd say that this is the best of the books, because I've already read Red Dwarf #4, 'The Last Human'. ( )

I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a teenager.

The original "Red Dwarf" novel "Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers" had me in stitches while the follow-up "Better then Life" was regularly amusing. The law of diminishing returns has come into play though and the humour in "Backwards" is more difficult to find.

The idea behind "Backwards", that the Red Dwarf crew get stuck in a dimension where time is going backwards, is an interesting one and raises some uncomfortable outcomes, such as what happens when you defecate. And the ending is easily the most heartwarming of the "Red Dwarf" series. ( )

Rob Grant's Backwards is the alternate third Red Dwarf novel following Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers and Better Than Life, both of which Grant co-authored with his Red Dwarf co-creator Doug Naylor. Backwards picks up right where Better Than Life left off, though it slightly deviates from the television series. Unlike Naylor's solo novel, this book holds fairly true to the original series. The story revolves around the escape from the backwards universe and the events of the episode "Gunmen of the Apocalypse". While Grant's writing builds on these plots a bit, he mostly uses a disjointed style of writing to attempt to recreate some of the humor of the show. Unfortunately, the backwards universe works better on film than in print. Grant's portrayal of the characters he co-created features everything fans of the show want to see and the story will entertain die-hard fans. Though Doug Naylor wrote a previous book, titled Last Human, that novel is an alternate sequel to Better Than Life rather than a predecessor to Backwards. Both of these novels offer an alternate conclusion to the series. ( )

Classic Red Dwarf. And a trip down memory lane.

I give this four stars, but you must understand: if you're not a RD fan, you'll probably give this 2 stars, at the most. You've been warned. :) ( )
