The Misplaced Battleship

Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.2 stars; 315 reviews)

"It might seem a little careless to lose track of something as big as a battleship ... but interstellar space is on a different scale of magnitude. But a misplaced battleship—in the wrong hands!—can be most dangerous." The world class con man and thief known as the Stainless Steel Rat (diGriz) has another very big problem to solve and this science fiction novella by the great Harry Harrison will see if he can solve it and perhaps four or five more like it before this fascinating and funny tale is finished. 'Use a thief to catch a thief' sounds great but it sometimes has unexpected results. (Summary from the book and Phil Chenevert) (1 hr 11 min)

Fast and fun space chase

(5 stars)

A well written episode of a clever character doing what he does best. The narration fits the wild nature of the story and encourage us to look forward to more from this thief turned straight-ish.

The narrator's reading style is a matter of taste, naturally. I cannot tolerate it. Others like it. My primary reaction is the feeling of having a book for an adult being read by a children's storyteller.

Very good but too short...
