    "A good novel"

    If you are this deep in the series you will be buying this one. that being said it is a good, fast, fun read like the others in the series. i'd say this is about on par with the previous book. So, judge accordingly.

    "It's the Stainless Steel Rat, what else to say?"

    Harry Harrison's series still entertains after all this time. Looking for deep mystical dialog?
    Sorry, these are pure quill space opera, as SSR and his murderous family continue to confront the bad guys on yet another world!

    "Good Listion but not as good as reading it"

    I remember reading the book and laughing all the time and that is why it is one of my favorite books of all time. However, not like that when I listed to it.

    Still a good story but I hopping for the Phil Giganteto help the humor come out. However, Phil Gigante did do different voices for different characters.
