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!
I love all the Reacher novels but this one was really good.
Can't compare it.
The scene where is does Paulie in.
Say something about yourself!
The undercover aspect of Jack Reacher's adventure was captivating.
His reading is clear and his voices make it easy to keep the characters separated.
I was caught up in the final underwater scene wondering how Reacher would survive to finish his mission.
I always feel like I'm participating in the case...trying to find answers.
He is always great!
When I was listening, I did not watch any TV. I turned it on while getting ready for work, while driving in the car, while cleaning the house, and when I was going to sleep ( using the timer). So, I would say yes!!
The story line was okay
not from this author
bought because of good reviews. Will not buy anymore from this author. disappointed.
I love to escape with a super hero, and Jack Reacher is certainly a super hero. He is the strongest, the smartest, and the biggest (almost). He's certainly the 'baddest'. Jack figures it out and wins the day in the end. In this world of weak-kneed, namby-pamby, and wishy-washy, Jack is an escapist's dream. Love me some Jack Reacher.
I would not listen to the Persuader again right now because I am reading the other Jack Reacher novels.
The opening chapter, the attempted kidnapping.
Dick Hill's performance was stellar as usual.
The tag line would be Bad Guys Watch Out, Jack Is Back.
The Jack Reacher series is extremely enjoyable. Yes, it’s formulaic. I get that and frankly, I don’t care. I find it entertaining. Jack is a man’s man that women will love. He’s a flawed character, but generally in a good way. He has no problem killing you if you’re a bad guy, but will go out of his way to help a person in distress. There’s obligatory sexual liaisons that go nowhere in every book, but it’s not generally more than a nod that we are human and sexual beings. And it doesn’t get in the way in the story.
The endings are mostly good endings, but not the happy ever after endings that one might want. And, though, I like happy endings, but I still find this series intriguing and very enjoyable. It makes me WANT to listen to every single one of the series and I have listened to most of them, so far. In fact, after listening to my first Jack Reacher book, which was in the middle of the series, I decided to go back to the beginning and listen to them in order. Not that it is necessary, at all.
And the narrator is fantastic. Absolutely great voice!
Lee Child at his best once again. I love the undercover aspect of this book, Reacher takes on everything and gets the job done. Heart pounding action, moral dilemmas and an interwoven story that mixes Reacher's past with the present story in a perfect manner. Great story telling. One I would read again. If you have never read a Reacher book, this may not be the one to start with but then again all of Reacher's books can stand on their own and bring you into his character in a way that when you are finished you feel like you know him. I must confess the lifestyle of Reacher appeals to me very much.
