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?

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.

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.

Good Job of Filling In

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.
