Last Human (Red Dwarf, #4)
Doug Naylor

Lister gazed out of the porthole and catalogues the series of disasters that had led him to this point in space and the bad decisions, the poor career choices, the unreliable friendships that had led him here – on a prison ship bound for the most inhospitable penal colony in the outer cosmos…and all he’d ever wanted was to be a soft metal guitar icon. This is the beginning of the third and eagerly awaited red dwarf novel where Lister starts out by searching for his Doppelganger and ends up having the future of the human race on his shoulders.

Though enjoyable enough, I think this lost some of the spark. Some things were familiar (I’m sure Kryten got turned Human in an episode and the gags were familiar), but the feeling you come away with at the end of this one is a little flatter, as if a little of the fun was missing.
