Review of 'Colony'

Colony by Rob Grant

One of the creators of Red Dwarf continues his independent book-writing career after Backwards spinning a tale of a complete self-confessed “loser” who, through a series of misadventures ends up with a tin-can robotic body and the only person who can save a colonization ship from complete destruction. Rob Grant definitely has a somewhat warped (and sick) sense of humour though I did find myself chuckling a few times, albeit when I was a bit tired and easily susceptible to such things…Having said all that, it is a somewhat bizarre, dark yet entertaining romp through the mind of one of the great science fiction television writers of our time. Don't expect Shakespeare but if you want a fun read, this one is for you.

Rating: “A bit better than average”

Genre: Science Fiction
