All the book's I've read on Reacher has always kept my interest, and I can say I will read all of the one's I don't have...Reacher Rock's
I read a lot of reviews prior to selecting a book. I value my time too much to spend it reading a lemon. I hope my reviews will be helpful as you look for your next book
This was my first Lee Child book, and I really enjoyed it. It was packed with action, and the time flew by as I listened to it. For me it's not quite a five-star book just because it was predictable, and didn't go very deep with any of the other characters.
I'm not reading them in order but have been very pleased so far. This episode was no exception. Not sure I'd really like somebody out there taking irrevocable justice into their own hands, but it makes for a good story.
I love to read espionage and criminal thrillers. My lifestyle doesn't allow time to sit and read so audio books is really an enjoyment.
Yes it did. This is one of the most exciting Lee Child books I have ever listened to.
Dick was awesome. The drowning scene was one of his best reads.
The book was unbelievably "on your seat" reaction. I did laugh some.
A bit predictable and overly violent.
Yes if you are a Lee Child fan it's a good read
Going out of the window with dual persuaders.
I love the Lee Child Reacher series
Anti hunters and animal rights nuts
earlier part of book before Child gave his personal opinion on hunters and PETA
Dick Hill is great
I can hardly believe a writer would make negative comments on Hunting and positive on PETA when his normal audience would be males and especially strong males. Many of which are outdoorsmen! Shame on you
From the 1st page on, I was "persuaded" by the author through the narrator that this audible selection would be exciting and dramatic, which is just what I was looking.
The plot led me from one page to the next by piquing my interest by switching scenes, teasing the reader. It led me to eagerly press on to the finish.
His wonderful ability to assume the identity of each speaking character by changing his voice to become the character. It's outstanding...his voice control, and he sustains it through out the read.
The books in the Reacher series provide generally fast-paced material and don't demand too much from the reader. Like his earlier books in the series, Child is still working on nuance regarding the elements of a mystery story. Persuader also requires the reader to accept a larger dose of fantastic survival skills on the part of Reacher. Because I have read the latest two books in this series (out of order and prior to deciding to read the series from the beginning), I know that Child gets better at plot formation, learns to better present/reveal mystery elements, and to reduce the readers need to accept fantastic situations, I will likely move on to the next book in the series.
Near the top for sure.
Aside from Jack, always the fav. it's always interesting to see who will be the sex interest of the day. All the characters are very interesting.
He just gets better with time!
I would if I could have.
The ending. Not the best. He could have tried just a bit harder to make it juicy to the very, exact, precise end. Didn't happen.
I would listen to this story again. It entails twists and turns throughout and kept me attentive. I listen to Audible books while I am walking and my walks were extended (good thing!)
The descriptions of the swims in the ocean. As a swimmer, I felt the cold and the undertow.
He has amazing phrasing and each word is clear and concise.
I listened to several chapters twice.
I love reading the Jack Reacher series. I always have two going...one on Kindle or hardback and one on Audible. The character has a bit of James Bond, coupled with Jack Ryan...and maybe some Jack the Ripper, as well. I particularly enjoy the descriptions of the places where Jack Reacher travels. They absolutely are accurate and so well described!
