The Stainless Steel Rat Lives
Pretty well. This is a minor entry in the Stainless Steel Rat series. Basically a snippet from the very first book. The performance matched the slightly over the top personality of the main character.
The performance was actually pretty fun. It added to the story.
The acting and inflections. Where reading it the dialogue comes across as a deadpan humor, here, the character gains more theatrical persona that matches the character.
It's a satirical book, so moved is not really appropriate. I did chuckle a lot throughout.
If you have the first novel, "The Stainless Steel Rat" you already have this story. If you want a taste of the series without the large time investment, this is a good option. Fun.
