Stainless Steel Rat-1.

Harry Harrison The Stainless Steel Rat Stainless Steel Rat-1 Chapter 1 When the office door opened suddenly I knew the game was up. It had been a money-maker-but it was all over. As the cop walked in I sat back in the chair and put on a happy grin. Stainless Steel Rat-1. Chapter 1. When the office door opened suddenly I knew the game was up. A few years back I wrote a small book on the subject-under a nom de plume of course-that was rather well received. My theory is that the aberration is a philosophical one, not a psychological one.

Harry Harrison The Stainless Steel Rat Stainless Steel Rat - 1. He had the same somber expression and heavy foot that they all have-and the same lack of humor. I almost knew to the word what he was going to say before he uttered a syllable. James Bolivar diGriz I arrest you on the charge-". I was waiting for the wordcharge,I thought it made a nice touch that way.

The Stainless Steel Rat is a five star book, The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge is a four, maybe 'Slippery' Jim DiGriz is basically Steve McQueen's character from The Thomas Crown Affair. He's got a lot more gadgets though and lives around 35,000 years in the future. Harrison made him a lot of fun to read and this book is great for a long weekend or a week of quiet evenings.

I read the first of these many years ago and enjoyed it. This book was not better or worse than the first. This time I listened to the CD. It's entertaining tongue in cheek that smacks of a cartoon. I think of Dudley Do-Right but that might be the reader taking me there. Of course, Slippery Jim is really a thief, so not an outstanding do right kind of citizen. He is hooked up with a wife that makes him look like Mr. Rogers. He spends a lot of time getting rescued by her. As in all cartoon like scenarios, he is always getting himself in a pickle but circumstances happen to fall his way and what he needs he either has, finds or it just comes along. He is a very devil may care thief who is convinced his thievery is good for the economy. It's hokey, but a light easy read. In this adventure he is slung back in time to save the world from "He", who has arranged for it to end. He has to go back to Dirt - Earth, to do this. He conveniently has an apparatus that allows him to learn English (with a Brooklyn accent), easily gets plenty of money robbing banks with his gadgets - go go gadget - and amazingly knows information about this planet no one has told him but it's necessary for the plot line so he has it. Don't think too much, just go along for the ride.

Another fine page turner in the Stainless Steel Rat series. I first picked one of these up in high school, and haven't looked back. I have read this and all the others many times, wearing out paper books, and picking up used versions when I see it, so I am glad to have the option to buy it in eBook format.

The main character, Jim DiGriz, is an unrepentant crook, but not a violent man, who gets into amazing capers that are entertaining, and fun to read. This case was about time travel, chasing villains through temporal hijinks, and ultimately foiling the foe, saving his family, friends, and theSpecial Corps.

Ive been reading this series since high school, so I am a bit biased. Classic to the genre, but with a humorous light hearted edge. The pace is steady, and the plot i fairly straight forward. One of the better parts of this book and the series is the dialogue, which makes it very enjoyable.
As this is my first book review, I will end here.

The adventures of the Stainless Steel Rat are fun. Harrison clearly had his tongue firmly planted in his cheek when he wrote these. Slippery Jim DiGriz, criminal thief mastermind, doesn't like to injure people, he just wants to take their stuff, so the violence is generally of the "A-Team" sort, lots of explosions, big handguns, and assassination attempts rarely injure anyone.

Book as described, would shop here again.

I have read the first book in the series and I'm in the second now. This is a fast-paced sci-fi novel. If you like the Artemis Fowl stuff, you'll probably like this.
Pleasant surprise!
