Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers

A very funny spoof of E E Doc smith's Skylark books, so read both and compare them! Two clever university students design a spaceship and go about fighting in wars in an random arbitrary fashion. Purposefully misogynistic, shallow, and convention defying....Hilarious!

The review of this Book prepared by Andrew Banks

It's a good book, if you like that sort of thing. Too much male-superiority though. No substance to the book, but funny anyways
