    "Fun story but overall of limited entertainment"

    After reading some of the series previously, I found the readers representation of the characters a little whiney. The story us also a little too silly.

    "Not the stainless steel rat"

    I picked this book because I love Harry Harrison's stainless steal rat. It had parts that were fun but I think it tried to be a little too cute. What worked in the stainless steel rat was more raw and uncultivated here. The humor was lowbrow in fact so lowbrow that sometimes it really was funny. With this being the first in the series I am 50/50 on the fence whether I'll continue with the next book.

    Story
    "Excellent narrator horrible story"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The Hank books are much better than these.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Harry Harrison again?

    Not sure, remembered the Bill stories being better.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    He is excellent.
