Good Job of Filling In

By:David Layton, Los Angeles, United States

Rating:   7

Barry Letts' novelization of his BBC radio drama is reasonably good as a novel on its own. Letts has filled in some details, rounded out characters, and generally gone beyond merely reproducing the script with a few descriptive details. The faults are mostly in the original conception of giving a seemingly scientific justification for the popular concepts of an afterlife.

A Redeeming Novelisation...

Having listened to the original BBC radio serial, I was very, very sceptical about reading it's novalisation. Listening to the recordings, the cast sounded ancient and I could barely make it past a few episodes. But I cast aside my scepticism and pictured the characters as they were in the original 1970s serials, and it works perfectly.

This is by far one of the better written tie-in novels I've read; although the concept and explanation of N-forms and N-bodies is a little bit feeble, it's still a very exciting and fast paced story. A pleasant and enjoyable read - worth the money.

This is by no means the worst missing adventure by a long shot, it's just unengaging. I found reading it to be an effort, not a pleasure.

Everyone is wrong about this book

The Ghosts of N-Space is a brilliant book and an enjoyable read. I can’t believe people hate it. In my opinion, it ranks alongside the radio serial, which almost everyone hates as well. Both are enjoyable. What is wrong with people these days?
