We have to talk. This just isn't working between us anymore.
Be assured that it isn't you; it's me.
Your super human escapades are fine, I just can suspend belief long enough anymore
Your emotional immaturity is fine, I just feel I need something a less shallow these days
Your author's choice of having Tom Thumb , I mean Tom Cruise play you in a movie is fine, even though I am stricken with paralyzing nausea at the very thought
I'm not worried that you will reply as your author's most favorite phrase for you is "I said nothing." Honestly Jack, if I had a penny for every time I heard that, I could forget trying to win the Power Ball
I wish you all the best. I know you will find new readers/listeners as I must move on and find other authors/heroes/books .
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
This was the first Lee Child audio book I've listened to, although it is in the middle of the series. It's still a great stand-alone story, and caught my attention from the start, kept it until the end. I'm a sucker for ex-military types and love it when they are the good guys, and this one is full of ex-military guys, good and bad. The back story (ten years prior when Reacher was still in the army) was very interesting and central to the current story, and if you don't listen carefully, near the end of the book, you may get confused. I didn't. Great story, great narration. I will be listening to more of the 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.
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!
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I liked the action parts of this novel, but the story was extremely weak and unbelievable in so many areas I don't know where to start. I have read 2 other Lee Child novels which I enjoyed, but this one was weak.
Also Dick Hill, the narrator, should not try to do any characters other than the main character. Every supporting character sounds the same-whether man or woman...like an alcoholic older woman(who we have all met on the street asking for a donation to her habit). Advise to the author, Lee Child: have someone else do the supporting characters other than Dick Hill. Dick Hill does a fine job for the main "tough guy" character. But it was tedious listening to Dick Hill repeat the same intonations for every single supporting character, whether male or female. I wanted to stop listening it was so painful.
Yes, when I stopped the audio, I couldn't wait to get back to it.
Reacher's fight with Pauly
Fight scene with Pauly and when Reacher was fighting for his life while being pulled down by the ocean's under tow
Really had a blast listening to it.
The story definitely has a good twist and I enjoyed it. I will read another Reacher book. I did however find it a little hard to believe that Reacher and a small team of FBI agents working "off book" could leave a trail of bodies in their wake as they do in this book and not be discovered. Nevertheless, it was a good read.
I have listened to several of "Reacher's adventures" and have always enjoyed them, as well as the narration. For some reason this one wasn't as smooth with the characters & story line. But If you're a real Reacher fan you'll probably enjoy it. If it's your first out of the series it may deter you from some of the other, much better books in the series.
