This review is from: The Stainless Steel Rat: The Stainless Steel Rat Book 1 (Mass Market Paperback)
I remember this as a comic strip in 2000AD, when I was a nipper - that's the reason I first bought this book (many years ago) - what a cracking book it is (even though as a rule, I'm not a science fiction fan when it comes to books).
This book is like a Sci Fi mix of the Dirty Dozen, James Bond & Monty Python(read it & you'll see).It combines action, humour & adventure in one really enjoyable bundle.
The adventures of Slippery Jim, intergalactic criminal,caught & then recruited to the "right" side of the law - just marvellous.
Well written, fast moving , thrilling & funny - a great mix, a smashing book.
