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.
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.
I would recommend this book to anyone. I jammed packed full of action.
I couldn't stop listening l, the plot didn't give me a place I wanted to stop.
Dick Hill made each character different and unique.
Absolutely, yes, because my inner reading voice doesn't do characters and sound nearly as cool as Dick Hill.
I can't give away many moments without issuing spoilers. Any Reacher boss fight is always among my favorite moments in any of the books.
I consider this #2 because he performance in The Enemy was my favorite to date.
Absolutely. I got hooked right from the start.
