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

    "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.

    "Stainless Steel Rat"

    I rewad all of the Harry Harrison books as a young man and was fascinated to see they were still available. I have now bought most of them and have enjoyed them as much as I did more than 40 years ago

    Story
    "CSI in Space with Perfectly Snarky Narration!"
    Would you listen to The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge again? Why?

    Yes. I listened to the first book and now am addicted to this hilariously funny series of CSI-like romps in space -- dang it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Slippery Jim, of course.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    Gigante is a perfect match for narrating these humorous stories. He is amazing. His combination of introspective, whimsical, snide, and nonchalant delivery, with perfect inflections and pauses, really make Harrison's "Stainless Steel Rat" audiobooks a complete joy.


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

    I was moved to laughter and choking snorts throughout. At the end, despite all attempts to resist, I was moved to buy the next book in the series. What a scam!


    Any additional comments?

    Warning: Don't even start to listen to these books, as they are extremely addictive!

    "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.

    "space age agent 007"

    For all it's cleverness, I was bored. It was somewhere between the narrative of a video game and a James Bond story taking place in the distant future. Characters were entertaining, but even 5 hours was too much for my taste. There were a few aloud chuckles, but mostly I just wanted it to end. Might make a cute movie; for a good listen .. well, not so much.
