Listening while I run.
Maybe, I just don't get it but this is the second Reacher book that I thought was just mediocre. The story was slow and boring and the bad guys were not believable. I tried but I could not get into the story. I would say pass on this one.
Where do I begin? Lee Child seems to have some sort of ADD when it comes to his character Jack Reacher. In one book he is, "all that movie stuff you see when revenge is sweet- my brother would laugh at that" and then another he is, "I'm Jack Reacher, I NEED YOU TO KNOW WHO I AM". Not to mention Reacher goes from being hyper vigilant in 95 percent of all situations and always has some sort of complete lack of sense at the times it matters most. Lazy writing. Manufactured danger. Really dumb 'bad guys'.
One last thing. Stop painting people who believe in the right to bear arms and own whatever weapons they deem enough to protect themselves from danger and mostly tyranny as thugs and villians, whilst claiming that in the hands of some douche bag former MP it's completely OK.
No. Mitch Rapp almost never disappoints.
Jack Reacher of course. Dick Hill is great.
Dick Hill in a Punisher comic book type setting would be great. Even if he were to narrate over an actual movie. (If I'm late to this party please understand this is the only character I've ever heard him voice)
The best part was the twist at the beginning
The least was the lengthy descriptions of guns
This story did not have the personal relationships of previous books.
I wouldn't put it better than the print version, only that the audio version lets me enjoy the book/story at times when I would not be able to read, such as while driving.
The back and forth between present and past. I don't remember Child doing this before
Made me think, 'YEAH!"
Very enjoyable. I'd recommend it to any Reacher fan
Reacher seems to be getting a little old and broken for all the action. No regrets, the listen was great but I may be done with the Reacher series.
Yes, so far one of the top 5 Jack Reacher stories
Kept my attention throughout the book, fast pace
Good solid narration
Reacher's interaction with the Feds
Don't miss this Jack Reacher Novel
I chose this one from the previous reviews, which were all good. It was excellent with a very good ending. One of the reviewers had said that the story takes many unexpected turns and it was all that and more.
Great story. Kept me hooked throughout.
Yes. There was always enough there that you thought you knew what was going to happen. Then you find out you were wrong.
I have read 5 or 6 of the Reacher books, and they have always seemed moderately plausible. This one, however, was ridiculously implausible after the first chapter. The base plotline was good, but everything else just seemed outrageous. I am not especially fond of the narrator either. His delivery is a bit staccato and I don't care for his voice. I think it can be a toss up when you go from reading the books, to then listenign to them. You already have your own internal pacing and impressions, and the narrator doesn't usually mimic that. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, honestly, even if I had read it instead of listen to it. 61 hours, so much better. And why call it Persuader?
nope. not even from other Reacher books.
Staccato. Harsh. Cocky.
irritation and disappointment
this series is very good, but not this book. give another reacher novel a try.
One of the best Reacher novels, with an extreme but plausible plot and some superb writing involving a near-drowning. The first-person narration works much better than the previous third-person storytelling. The action keeps unfolding and building to a very satisfying end.
