Hollywood has so obviously run out of creative ideas, they need to look at this series . Although written on about a 5th grade level, Harrison writes these stories with no fill or wasted words whatsoever, and they are hilarious fun. Perfect for me to catch a chapter or two right before bed.
Item received promptly and was in excellent condition. Giving to a grandson for Christmas who has not enjoyed reading but told me he would love this series. He is in US Navy so his mates must have been talking about Harry Harrison.
This was a fun beginning to an even funner series. This book introduces Jim Digris , The Stainless Steel Rat, to the universe. Just like the the rest of the series this book is light on details but makes up for it in pace and oddball fun. Not an incredibly deep or thought provoking read but slippery Jim is the kind of criminal you can root for.
