What would have made Blood and Steel better?
A different person reading it.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Don't know couldn't get past the horrible dragging out of the last syllable, especially anything that ended in the letter R. So, on the constructive side - send the Narrator to speech therapy?
How could the performance have been better?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
disappointment and... revulsion?
Any additional comments?
Honestly couldn't tell if this was a decent story or not, because I only lasted less than an hour with the narrator - perhaps will try & pick up the book itself. Honestly the first book i ever tried to return.

What disappointed you about Blood and Steel?
I'm sorry to have to rate the content as average because for all I know it's an excellent story. Unfortunately I'm forced to rate it. I was simply unable to suffer past the auricular dissonance of the first chapter. I feel bad for authors who get stuck with simply awful narration. It's not just that bad narration can hurt a good book; sometimes it can render it inaudible.
Would you recommend Blood and Steel to your friends? Why or why not?
Maybe in Kindle format
What didn’t you like about Andy Babinski’s performance?
It wasn't just the heavy nasal inflection that made this narration so irritating. Babinski has this annoying tendency of drawing out the final consonant of certain words (seemingly at random). Is there really such a dearth of decent narrators that publishers have to hire Mr. Snuffleupagus? And is Sesame Street ok with their characters moonlighting?
