Summary The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge

Read The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB characters ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Harry Harrison Invading and taking over planet after planet The Rat is sent to Cliaand to start a one man guerrilla campaign to put a stop to the plans of the planet's leader Kr I liked the premise invading a planet from another planet is impossible but these guys are doing it go figure out how The infiltration and action were just as clever and fun as in the first book The information gained late in the book seems to hint at a recurring villain The only thing that lets this down is the solution to the original problem it turns out they are successful invading planets because they convert all the resources to invading the next planet Not terribly convincing

Read The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB characters ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Harry Harrison DiGriz and Angelina are happily married and expecting the birth of their sons The planet Cliaand is waging interstellar war and against the odds its Grey Men are James Bolivar DiGriz aka the Stainless Steel Rat is my newest literary comfort food After reading this I even created a comfort food bookshelf because I found it such a mood enhancing piece of toe tapping terrific Granted there are a lot of morally casual rogue types surfing the SF space ways but Harry Harrison has made Slippery Jim something very warm and cuddly He is a cup of hot chocolate and a pair of UGG slippers wrapped in a soft blanket in front of a fire on a chilly evening He is FEEL GOODNESS itself Why A number of reasons but two I found most important First is the gliding easy breezy style of Harry Harrison s writing that he infuses with real uality a tough balance This is light hearted fun with depth Second and related to the first is the intelligence and detail that Harrison brings to the plot Despite being designed as a smiling inducing space adventure Harrison provides enough explanation for DiGriz s larger than life accomplishments to preserve the disbelief suspension so that the reader never feels like their smarts are being given the finger Harrison makes you feel taken care of by his stories That is something I found really special A little background on the Rat For those new to the series James DiGriz was the galaxy s most accomplished most sarcastic thief and most wanted thief Smart suave and skilled in the art of disguise and wholesale dishonesty he s also a master at breaking and entering and numerous forms of hand to hand combat He is saucy sack of SCOUNDRELific Things got real interesting when Slippery Jim was out conned into joining the Special Core an elite police force and spy agency made up of former criminals The Special Core is headed by Harold P Inskipp aka Inskipp the Uncatchable who was the most famous thief in the galaxy in his day The Special Core s mandate is to hunt down the most violent criminals and run certain covert ops for the government when their particular skill sets are neededPlot Summary Jim and Angelina his pregnant wife and former criminal mastermind are off honeymooning and doing a little bank robbing for shits and giggles they maybe Special Core but they are still roguishly roguey Of course Jim would say he is just giving the police force a bit of excitement in their otherwise dreary lives Anyway Jim and Angelina s escapades are cut short and Jim is sent on a spy mission to the Planet Cliaand Turns out Cliaand has been successfully invading nearby worlds something that until now has never been feasible given the logistical problems and the enormous cost and resources necessary to forcefully invade another planet uick Note I thought this concept of invading a planet being next to impossible was very well thought out and an interesting aspect of the story Well Cliaand has found a way to do it successfully and are beginning to expand at a dangerous rate DiGriz is sent to find out how they are doing it and discover a way to stop them The details of his mission and how he gets around the INTENSE security of the police state like Cliaand government is simply barrels of monkey fun I had such a good time with this story that I feel like I want to go back and read the first one because I only gave it 3 stars and that feels a bit criminal at the moment This is the kind of story that you can pick up time and time again and just enjoy DiGriz is the perfect rogue with mad skills and a heart of gold Think Han Solo with spy craft and sans wookie though Angelina is ONE SERIOUSLY TOUGH HOMBRE I plan to slowly read through the rest of the stories as well as Harrison s other work as he has really impressed me with his story telling so far If you are looking for a light hearted but smartly written and well plotted feel good story this certainly fits the bill 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION
