Format: Paperback
Chronologically the second book in the Jim diGriz (aka the Stainless Steel Rat) saga ‘…gets drafted’ is the story of the Rat’s attempts to get revenge on Captain Zennor who caused the death of his mentor The Bishop. The story of him getting involved in an invasion of another planet (yes it’s a repeat of ‘…Revenge’) which turns out to be Chojecki a pacifist utopia which annoys the generals who don’t get medals for bringing ‘back the troops intact’.
Though this book is in a lot of ways just a rehash of old story lines because you have megalomaniac dictators, an inept military, and a police state (yet again see ‘…Revenge’) against a load of pacifist cyclists who follow the principles laid down by a dysfunctional android it’ worth a read, just.

Took me right back, re-reading this classic comedy Sci-fi. If you liked Hitch Hikers Guide and Discworld, then this should also be on your reading list.

As the follow up to A Stainless Steel Rat is Born, the story was OK, with its main theme of a hunt for the bad guy that was the main cause of his friend The Bishop's death. It plods along and Jim eventually gets the baddie caught, strangely by the Fleet Navy in the end. Not the best book in the series and one I may dip back into again at some stage in the future, but it did not hold my attention as much as HHs earlier novels in the series.

This second-outing for Jim DeGriz is another winner for Harry Harrison. you will find it easy to identify with our reluctant hero and Mr Harrison makes it VERY easy to picture every scene in your mind's eye. Clever writing with an easy to follow story line will have you eager to read the next book in the series.
