What disappointed you about Destruction?
Had to turn it off after a few minutes the narrator reads so fast I couldn't keep up with what was happening, the story might well be good but for me this was not listenable
Has Destruction put you off other books in this genre?
No but I would avoid the narrator
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Too fast felt like it was deliberately rushed, could not keep up with story

MORE THAN AMPLE CHEST
A lot has been said about the narrator and the speed in which he reads. You might want to check the sample to see if it is a problem for you. I had no problem with it, matter of fact I preferred it for the reading of this story. This story does not contain any great intellectual prose, no character development, no romance and no flowery overly descriptive language. Like Sci-Fi of old, it is straight and to the point, with no bells and whistles. Slowing down would have added nothing and just made it longer and boring. He actually sounded very talented and he put much in to it.
THE EARTH WILL SURVIVE, BUT HUMANITY WILL NOT
I did listen and enjoy the story from start to finish. I usually prefer some character development, but occasionally something like this hits the spot. I enjoyed the planning and strategizing. I enjoyed the concept and how it played out. It reminded me of B.V. Larson's writing. It is not going to win any prizes, but it entertains.
WE WILL MOURN THE DEAD WHEN THE FIGHTING IS DONE.

The two books in this series are written well, and the narrator does a great job individualizing how each character appears in tone and accent. However, the pace of reading is too quick and can be distracting. To be honest, if the vocal characterization wasn't so good, I would have given the performance just two stars and docked the overall score as well.
I recommend listeners grab the sample before purchasing. If you can overcome the pace of the reading, this is a pretty good book.
