    1. Our author returns to the 6th book in the original series (or 9th including prequels), and I was again disappointed. That just leaves the question of how badly?While we don't expect a lot of reality or hard SF in these books, they are at least internally consistent. In this book, Harrison has written the character into a corner with the various bizarre realities. Now under the Rat's control are the powers of time and universe travel, time stasis, a molecule thin shield that is impervious to ever [...]


    2. I'm ultimately bored by everything. Nothing to read, nothing to watch, let's see maybe this one is better than last.


    3. Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell Jim DiGriz has his fanily, his twins and all is well. Until Angelina “goes to church” and gets herself abducted. Most of the book is about Jim’s adventures in finding the con artist who took his wife, uncovering a major conspiracy – multiple bodies, time dilation, multiple universes and a new element on the Elemental Table that creates eternal life. But this is all very much not the DiGriz I read about years ago as a teen of such novels as Stainless Steel [...]


    4. One of the more interesting Stainless Steel Rat adventures and I like the way they eventually foiled the villain.



    5. This adventure that has slippery Jim diGriz gallivanting across multiple universes does not have the quality of dialog that most of the other Stainless Steel Rat stories have. Some of that is made up by the satire of religions, specifically those that offer salvation if you donate a great deal of money.In this story there is one chief antagonist called Slakey and he is capable of duplicating himself and any other person. One of the most powerful features of the duplication is that all versions o [...]


    6. The Stainless Steel Rat series is one of my favorite science fiction series. My personal favorite are the first three books. In this book, The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell by Harry Harrison, I was interested to see Jim diGris being his older self again (for a while, Mr. Harrison was doing flashback books). But I do find that the later books do not have the same cutting edge that the early books had. I loved the humor in those books. Still, Jim is entertaining, but the situations he gets into [...]


    7. This is only my second Stainless Steel Rat novel, but I think I need to go back to the beginning and check out the first few in the series. Not only were there loads of characters and references to past events with which I was unfamiliar, this SSR story felt tired and forced. I felt like the author was just throwing in new twists and calamities for the heroes in order to boost his pagecount to novel length. There was no real flow to the plot and many of the events that either saved the day or ru [...]


    8. This is a case of the author should have quit while he was ahead. This book was written over 30 years after Harry Harrison started the Stainless Steel Rat series and it shows. I'm into the occasional escapist quick read as much as anyone else but the story line of this book reads like a multitude of rejected plots from B science fiction movies. How off the wall does it get? An attack is made on a universe by going through a garage door portal using a salami as a weapon. At least it won't break a [...]


    9. Another adventure for Slippery Jim DiGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat. This time there's a conman on the loose, promising rich people a glimse (and more) of heaven. Jim's wife is missing and he has to track down the physicist at the heart of it before it's too late.A major problem that I had with this book is the the tame scientist on hand, ready to invent exactly what's needed to move on to the next bit of plot. What keeps it going, however, is Harrison's sense of pace. He keeps the book going fai [...]


    10. Another thrilling chapter in the adventures of the Stainless Steel Rat! Harrison’s writing in this series is fun and action packed. Slippery Jim and family are great characters and Harrison puts them through the paces again and again. This time, through a neat allegory of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell, our heroes must save the universe from an evil nut case who is using religion for profit. The fiend! Re-reading this series has definitely piqued my interest in checking out more of Harry Harrison [...]


    11. Harrison’s anti-hero Jim diGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat is relaxing on a luxury planet with his wife. His wife disappears while visiting the Temple of Eternal Truth, whose leader promises a peek of heaven for a price. Determined to get his wife back, diGriz takes on the temple. In the process, he is banished to hell. Thus comes the fight for survival and escape. Not the best of Harrison and not the best of this series. In fact, diGriz seems to have mellowed too much with age. In my opinion, h [...]


    12. The Rat finds himself pursuing a conman who's been swindling people with visions of a false Heaven. Along the way he discovers alternate universes, gets tortured, kidnapped, and generally has a great old time being awesome. It's a classic whirlwind adventure but, as with many of the other later novels in the sequence, there doesn't seem to be a real aim to the humour or story and it takes a fairly scattergun approach to the themes. It's still a good fun read, though, which is all I've ever asked [...]


    13. SciFi humor. I quite enjoyed the first five books or so, but in the end the laughter starts wearing thin. I gave up after “The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell”. Those I have read are: The Stainless Steel Rat The Stainless Steel Rat’s Revenge The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World The Stainless Steel Rat Wants You The Stainless Steel Rat for President A Stainless Steel Rat is Born The Stainless Steel Rat Gets Drafted The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hellbookssboch/?p=817


    14. Some how I missed this one of the series. I've always enjoyed Harry Harrison's stories and this one fits the standard format. Lot's of fights, some out of the box thinking and a touch of romance all set in a science fiction environment.


    15. Angelina has gone missing and Slippery Jim has to search Purgatory, Heaven and Hell to find her. The Stainless Steel Rat books are starting to drag. There are ludicrous ideas, like going into battle with a salami. It was still an enjoyable book, but not the best of the Stainless Steel Rat series.


    16. A great fun Stainless Steel Rat. Not quite as good as the first ones (but it does a good job on building on the "canon" of earlier books) -- a bit more nuanced commentary than the earlier books. Still -- fast and fun!


    17. Another futuristic romp through the universe with the Stainless Steel Rat as he and his wife and sons visit both heaven and hell. Always a fun read whether you're a SF fan or not.




    18. This series was recommended many times by sci-fi fans, but I didn't get to it in time to finish it before the library wanted it back. The character seemed interesting at first, maybe another time.



    19. Harrison, Harry.The Stainless Steel Rat . London: Sphere, 1981 (orig. 1961), Mass Market Paperback, 158 pages.


    20. Another in the stainless steel rat books. They are all quick reads with alot of humor in them. The stories remain fresh and new. Very recommended, especially to teen readers or someone new to SiFi


    21. Interesting book which kept me reading. The characters were likeable and the story had lots of good twists and turns.




    22. Not a classic. But worth a quick read. If you're unfamiliar with SSR then check them out in order, the first 4 are classics.
