review Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers Free read ✓ 104 characters Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Harry Harrison The wild galaxy hopping adventures of brash young scientists Jerry Courtenay and Chuck van Chider are at the core of this classic space opera When the two college students develop a faster than light space drive in their homemade. This is such a fun read Harrison is one of those writers who can cover a lot of material in a handful of sentences He s also got a sharp sense of wit witness his satirical take on Cold War politics gender relations and sexuality in this slim adventure Moreover Harrison doesn t hesitate to mess with convention and take his story in directions that some would consider controversial You will never guess where the characters take their lives by the story s endThis is the kind of writing that keeps me interested in science fiction The massive multi book stories that contemporary writers offer today may look epic but their size is too daunting a writer has to be incredible to hold my interest that long and much of the prose that I encounter is passable at best Harrison is someone who can fit a number of ideas in a fraction of the pages and make you laugh His is a talent that I recommend to any reader

review Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers Free read ✓ 104 characters Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Harry Harrison Urtling through the solar system towards Titan an icy moon of Saturn inhabited by hideous ice creatures Titan and the 20th century are only suare one as the foursome becomes embroiled in a vast intergalactic century jumping battl. Now before anyone accuses me of missing the point here I get that this book is satire You can I guess accuse me of not having a sense of humor because I didn t think it was terribly funny Harrison seems to have decided to parody the style of macho sci fi he grew up with and to deliberately write the worst book he could manage to write in the process In fairness the worst book he could write is still better than the best most authors ever manageThe book is about a couple of college jocks who also happen to be scientific geniuses that stumble across the secret to faster than light travel and begin an adventure across the galaxy in a 747 their school uses to transport the football team They fight various bug eyed monsters and intergalactic threats with the nature of the uest becoming increasingly improbable at each new development Along with them comes the school s black janitor who is a Communist spy at the outset but converts to Americanism along the way and a shapely cheerleader who spends a lot of time in the galley fixing sandwiches If that description strikes you as funny have at it but to me it s sort of like expecting people to see the funny side of exactly what most sci fi really was like not terribly long ago and what certain sad puppies would like to see it become again This book actually redeemed itself for me a little at the end where Harrison sticks his finger in the eye of anyone who had missed the satire and actually enjoyed all the macho silliness beforehand Would that Robert Heinlein had done the same with Starship Troopers
