    1. My Rating Scale:1 Star - Horrible book, It was so bad I stopped reading it. I have not read the whole book and wont2 Star - Bad book, I forced myself to finish it and do NOT recommend. I can't believe I read it once3 Star - Average book, Was entertaining but nothing special. No plans to ever re-read4 Star - Good Book, Was a really good book and I would recommend. I am Likely to re-read this book5 Star - GREAT book, A great story and well written. I can't wait for the next book. I Will Re-Read th [...]

    2. Although these are quick reads, and reflective of some of the social problems of the time, these never fail to entertain. In this book, eight years have passed since Remo ended one life and began his training to become the Destroyer. This is perhaps a bit of retconning to make JFK the president who instigated the program known as CURE. It's a bit ironic that when LBJ tells Nixon about it, Dick is uncomfortable with an extralegal organization. Of course, this was before Watergate and the revelati [...]

    3. Remo infiltrates a think tank that seems to be working on a plan to conquer the world. Some of the greatest brains in the country are working together but some of them start turning up dead. Remo has to find out which of the brains is behind the killing and the possible plot for world conquest.Quite an improvement over #1. Remo is doing more advanced training. Chiun is still not an active player which does take away from the overall feel of the book. Very little humor. Remo is getting to be more [...]

    4. I read this because I'm curious how "The Destroyer" develops from the first book (which is dark and takes itself seriously) to the fun, silly, crazy series it becomes.Sadly, this one is a pretty crappy transitional book that was hard to follow, featured almost no interaction between Remo and Chiun, AND was taking itself seriously, despite being fairly lame. There was a preview of book 3 at the end . . . which has some of the trademark interaction that becomes the trademark of the series. Honestl [...]

    5. My favorite of the first few books in The Destroyer series. Eccentric supporting characters who are described in a fun and quite politically incorrect way. Great descriptions bring this very violent thriller to life. The authors were still feeling their way around the series. We do get a glimpse of eastern mysticism, but very little Chiun in this one. Remo is in the very early stages of learning to harness the extraordinary powers he eventually develops.Unless you are easily offended, this actio [...]

    6. Another mildly entertaining tale of Remo Williams, super assassin guy. In this, book #2 out of a hundred+, Remo infiltrates a think tank and beats the hell out of people and plays some chess. Pretty lightweight entertainment despite the sometimes serious content-Nazis show up and a man makes love to a giraffe. Seriously.

    7. What I lovingly call my chiun books. A fun series to read. Thanks to the guys at Bobos Arcade for turning me on to this series.

    8. I loved the series when I first read it many years so. I re-read the first 12 in February. I still enjoyed the, especially #1 and #3. I am looking forward to Mr. Gordon's and Nuic's return.

    9. Though the cover price indicates this is a twelve-and-one-half dime novel, I did in fact pay one dime for it (in 2017 dimes, that was basically a cover-price ha-penny) to support the Habitat for Humanity. There's not much else to say about this. It's pretty raw at times. Gritty, if you will. Sort of like a Westerosi James Bond, perhaps. But I bought it for a good cause, so it's okay.

    10. In the 2nd book of this series Remo (our protagonist) puts various smug acedemics in their place using moxy and mystical martial arts training. Enjoy it for the ride, the plot in this one turns out to be a bit thin.

    11. An okay action book about Remo Williams. He is definitely not woman friendly in this one. He infiltrates a think tank and takes on an ex-Nazi and his depraved daughter. Of course everything works out in the end.

    12. "Άγγελος θανάτου", εκδόσεις ΒΙΠΕΡ.Χρονολογικά η δεύτερη ιστορία με ήρωα τον πρώην αστυνομικό και νυν εκτελεστή της μυστικής υπηρεσίας CURE, Ρέμο Ουίλιαμς, όμως είναι η ένατη που διαβάζω, μιας και μέχρι να την βρω σε κάποιο παλαιοβιβλιοπωλείο είχα ήδη προχωρήσει στις επόμενες [...]

    13. Had the series not evolved into what it eventually became, I don't think I would've stuck with it. This book is all but devoid of the humor and lightness, even in dark situations, that becomes such a trademark of the Destroyer series. Still, you can see the beginnings of what will emerge, and that's kind of neat. I recommend this book to curious fans of the series, but certainly not to newbies checking it out for the first time.

    14. You can learn much from reading these books. For example how peoples attitude towards ethnic groups has changed, what words are acceptable to use to describe them and how to kill someone with a toothpick. Very informative and just silly enough that all the killing isn't too upsetting. He really is a nice guy.

    15. I did not enjoy this book as much as the first one. The story was very different. I know that the characters and content of the stories is really supposed to change starting with book 3, so I'm still planning on reading it.Here is my review:jugglingdragonworm

    16. One of the big men's adventure series from the 70's than ran an impressive 145 books. The series while an adventure/action story is also full of satire toward much of the mainstream fads and icons of the time. An interesting main character and the sarcastic mentor makes this a funny action/adventure read. This issue the heroes must fight a rogue think tank of American patriots. Recommended

    18. Add Remo Williams to a utopian community of scientists working fairly unfettered by the government. Toss in a Nazi war-criminal. Fold in some murder and a "plan to conquer the world". Cook it in a short paperback original and you get a pretty edible little take that will go down easy and keep the hunger for man stuff away for a day or two.Double entendres intended.

    19. Really neat concept, interesting reading as it's set in a recent but older time. Better than the move but when ISN'T the book?Like a more violent American James Bond.Kinda what Jason Bourne woulda been if he hadn't rebelled/"broke"

    20. This is the second Destroyer novel, and it's a little closer to the Destroyer formula than the previous book. The satiric tone is present, as are several Remo-isms. Chiun, however, is only present in Remo's flashbacks.

    21. I find myself really enjoying the fantastic pulp action and wry humor of this series greatly. The pacing is good and the book makes for great light reading. I did however find the anti-intellectual tone of this one a little off putting.

    22. Vasta toinen sarjassa ja jo löytymässä se magiikka, mikä Remoissa on. Huumoria, äärimmäistä väkivaltaa, jännitystä ja vauhtia. Loistavuutta.

    23. I read this hack series faithfully for years. Now I hear a movie (another move) is in the works. Not a bad read, And emojis a sympath tic character
