Publisher's Summary

Jim was left in the custody of the League Navy, this story opens with him escaping from his prison cell on the League base on Steren-Gwandra, where he is awaiting deportation back to his home world. He has discovered that Bibs, a crew girl from Captain Garth's ship, is also a prisoner. Jim holds Garth responsible for the Bishop's death, and plans to hunt him down, with Bibs' help. Garth is really the crazed Captain Zennor, head of an army which continually defies League peace treaties, and now plans to invade and conquer the planet Chojecki. The people of Chojecki are pacifists, having no armies and no police. But Garth's generals decide to attack anyway, since there are no medals for "generals who bring back the troops intact". Jim must save the people of Chojecki before he can face Garth.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "Good, but losing steam"

    This is a good story, but the series is starting to get a bit tired by this point. if you are a fan you will enjoy getting to spend time with old friends, but the quality isn't as good on this one. It almost feels forced like the author did it more because of fan demand than desire to tell a story. That is just mey personal opinion.

    "The Rat saves a planet and perhaps the Galaxy."
    Where does The Stainless Steel Rat Gets Drafted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my favorite of all the Stainless Steel Rat Series. I first read the book sometime back and now enjoy listening to it on Audible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stainless Steel Rat Gets Drafted?

    This of course is the first book that The Rat is on his own entirely. We see that the lessons he learned from The Bishop seem to have stuck and he seems on his way to a glorious career in crime.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoy listening to Phil when he narrates.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I never listen to any audio book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Garth even with all of his soldiers and weapons never stood a chance against The Rat. As we will see later in the series, non of the truly bad guys have any shot.

    "Another Stainless Steel Rat Adventure"

    If you're a fan of the Stainless Steel Rat this is certainly worth a purchase. Phil Gigante does a very good job of narrating and manages to make the audiobook as funny as the actual book. I did, however, not enjoy the story as much as the other Stainless Steel Rat stories, so if this is your first purchase I would recommend buying 'The Stainless Steel Rat' or perhaps 'A Stainless Steel Rat is Born'- as the story is direct sequel to that book it is best to be familiar with it anyway. Nevertheless, certainly worth the time and money even if it lacks the spark of some of the earlier works.
