White Space-Van Man revs off. Workshy slob and long term redundant doughnut Barry is a modern man, well, he takes the bins out and it has been known that, sometimes, he even washes up the dishes. When his good intentions to generally skive and dodge his job centre interview horribly backfires in the worst possible way, our anti-hero tub of lard is offered some work experience, 22nd century style. Will he succeed in becoming the saviour of the human race while carrying out his newfound employment as a pilot of a white space-van with efficiency and productivity, or is this all really some kind of horrible trick to prise him off of his sofa? Does Barry really care, he has a Cornish pasty and he’s quite happy with that? I hate book blurbs that end with lots of questions, don’t you? ...

white space van man prequel total fickle Reviews
Fun Break!It is somehow interesting and funny. Could read it to unwind a bit.
I'd been hearing lots about this White Space Van Man series over the past few years, but I'd never actually read any of it. I didn't even know what a white van man WAS until a few weeks ago when I looked it up on Wikipedia.Although I knew that the series was already pretty far along, I was hesitant, because I wasn't sure if I'd like it. But when I saw that the author had put up a prequel for free download, I thought "why not?" What better way to get into a series than by reading the prequel, right?I really liked this one. It's neither deep nor serious, which is a good thing because I've just come off a long, epic read, and I wanted something light. It's quick to read too, and full of humour. In fact, you might even say that it's laugh-a-minute.It's full of dry, British humour, sort of in the vein of Terry Pratchett, except that it's set in deep space in the distant future, and there's more swearing.Darren Worrow's work is really starting to grow on me. He has an interesting style of writing, that's quite unique, but I don't think I've read a recent offering from the man that hasn't made me smile. He's definitely got more than a little comic talent!P.S. In case you think I'm complaining about the swearing, I'm not. Yes, there's a lot of it, but I felt it was in context, and really added to the authenticity of the story. It was a plus for me.
After a meager breakfast of a granola bar and cup of tea, I sat down to read the prelude to WHITE SPACE VAN MAN. It had me laughing the whole time! This book sheds light on our hero, Barry, the driver of the space van. Without giving any more away, let me just say that this is a must read. You'll be sorry if you miss it!
If you were a Red Dwarf fan or you enjoy something with a very dry sense of humour, then you'll dig this. The hero is the most unlikely yet, a lover of fried breakfasts and a diva of the couch. It's very tongue in cheek, don't expect to believe anything you read!
Very fun, minute read with substance in the content. White Space prologue like a complete tale rather than a set-up. Worrow's narration owes to Adams' Hitchikers style, similarly direct, causes laughter and with a great observational style. Few sentences are wasted. I'm inclined to pick up another of this series.
