    The villainous He has travelled back in time to mankind's distant past on the legendary planet Earth (or 'Dirt') of 1984, where he is altering events so that people who opposed him in the Rat's present cease to exist, Angelina amongst them. Using the Helix, a time-travel device invented by the Special Corps' Professor Coypu, diGriz travels to 1984 America, and then to Napoleonic France where tanks and aircraft are helping bring about Napoleon's victory.

    What made the experience of listening to The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World the most enjoyable?

    The Rat never gives up, always finds a way out and succeeds where others would fail out of sheer luck and charisma. The flamboyant and exuberant reading sells the character and the setting. Even though he's thrust into impossible situations, he'll find a hole in the wall to crawl through - or he'll chew his way out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There's one main character - this is all first person narrative. Jim's ego is too big to have it any other way. It gives all of us wanna-be Rats hope and encouragement. Even in the bowels of ancient time, there's a way out.


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Phil Gigante is the perfect narrator for the Stainless Steel Rat collection. He makes the book sound in my ears like I see it in my head when I'm reading it. His reading is energized, indefatigable and buoyant, which matches the character perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This was when Jim was first being prepared to go back into time.

    Internationally best-selling author Anthony Horowitz's nail-biting new novel plunges us back into the dark and complex world of detective Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty - dubbed the "Napoleon of crime" by Holmes - in the aftermath of their fateful struggle at the Reichenbach Falls. Days after the encounter at the Swiss waterfall, Pinkerton detective agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York.

    Story

    Summerview so expressed displeasure that the twist at the end of the book review of the protagonist was none other than Moriarty. Well that was not my favorite part of the book, the story was engaging and I believe excellent example of works done to the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    The author, Anthony Horowitz, has mastered the style and flow of the original. I do look forward to your reading more of his books.

    Ok, it was a play on The title.

    I really like the series. It has excitement, story, And people that are really well-developed and become your friends or foes.

    This series helps fill out David Gerrold's universe and ties others of his books together.
