This was my first listen to the Jack Reacher novels, and I've already downloaded a few more. It's a fast paced story, full of action, suspense, murder, romance. You name it, this story has it, to keep the earbuds on for the duration.
The narration is excellent, so I'll definitely want to listen to more from Dick Hill, along with reading this series.
No. Almost unable to listen to due to lousey narrator.
This book is completely the same as past books. You can predict everything before it happens. That is if you can hear it. Because the narrator mumbles so much.
Someone that can control their volume and doesn't accentuate the last few words of every sentence.
Can you believe they cast Tom Cruise in the Jack Reacher movie? What is he? 5'6" tall?
And they make such a big deal about Reacher being 6'5" in the early books.
Dick Hill ruins good books. And destroys mediocre ones.
First of all, I did not like the narration performed by Dick Hill. It was either read too dramatically, or it was written like a soap opera and then read that way. Anyhow, the narrator did not help me like this book and I seriously doubt I will ever read the other books in the series.
I don’t think I liked the main character, Jack Reacher. To me he was too egotistical.
Oh no, I see that I also own the first book in the series, "Killing Floor", read by Dick Hill.
I guess I’ll give it a try and hope that maybe I’ll like Jack Reacher better in the first book in the series.
Loved this book…love this series. Definitely a thriller action paced book. Had one hour left in book and took it out of car and in house cause I just had to finish it!
Average, aggravating, aloof, amateur, arrogant, arduous, adequate, Annoying!
I could not get past the phrase "I said nothing" overly-peppered throughout the book. I mean utterly doused, thoroughly riddled and repeated way too many times.
I'm a reader whose most important criteria for a good book, is good dialogue. So imagine my dismay with an author who, for whatever damn reason, be it for some odd quirk I don't understand or just sheer laziness, omits the potential for an exchange in dialogue.
I've read and enjoyed a couple other Reacher novels in the past, but I don't recall getting this worked up about their short-comings. Dick Hill has always been just OK as a narrator for me. He doesn't ruin a book, but he doesn't quite bring it to life either.
Grrrr! Mr. Child, just plain Grrrrrr!
I love this book because it grabbed me from the start. There's a point in the first chapter where my jaw dropped and I was hooked. Plenty of action and suspense, well written bad guys, and plenty of cliffhangers and "what will he do?" moments in the middle.
Before this, I had read a few of the more recent ones and Pursuader confirmed that the older books are more tightly written with better thought out plots.

I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This is just a very good series. The characters are interesting and Child always comes up with different and interesting plots. I always look forward to the next in the series and have yet to find them repetitious or dull. I am really enjoying the series and will finish it for sure unless something drastic happens.
It's a Jack Reacher novel, need I say more? OK, it's a great Jack Reacher novel. It's also set in Portland, Maine. Lee Child does a respectable job maintaining both the geography of the region and capturing the atmosphere of southern coastal Maine. This story was a pleasure to read/listen to on many levels.
