If you like the rat you'll like this one

This is another good book in the series. It isn't deep, in fact the plots are pretty flimsy. The draw are the great characters Slippery Jim and Angelina are just plain fun to read about. It is fun along the way of a sci-fi version of ocean's 11. it is fun to see how they pull off the impossible.

The books are old and pretty dated, but as a story they hold up. In particular my 12 year old daughter loves these much as I did when I was around her age. This is not only a fun book but one you can read with the kids.

Tongue in Cheek

This is a tongue in cheek humor adventure Sci-Fi. James (The Rat) is a neat character and his wife is an even better character. A lot of the stunts are funny and you see them coming before they happen. Some of the jokes get repeated a little too often. The plot is not complicated, when there is a plot. This was written nine years after the first Stainless Steel Rat was written and the improved writing shows, although I think I wrote something like this in the 8th grade. This is one of those kind of stories that a kid would enjoy writing and reading. This is feather light reading and sometimes that is what you want.

I prefer the HH's more serious stuff such as the Eden series (all three books are great). I also liked Captive Universe and Hammer and the Cross. Hammer and the Cross is the first of a series, but you only want to read the first book.

I am not sure I have heard this narrator before and he did a great job.

Brilliant story, well read

As ever a high quality story from Harry Harrison which, although was first published over 40 years ago, still stand up well today. An excellent performance by Phil Gigante who still manages to make Angelina sound as sexy as she is portrayed in the books. I'll now always associate Phil as being the voice of DiGriz.
