I am hooked on the Lee Child Jack Reacher novel series. I just finished “Bad Luck and Trouble” book 11! Need I say anything about how awesome Dick Hill as the narrator? I love a book that gives me just enough color to feel as if I am in the eyes of the characters. This book kept me wondering, just like Jack Reacher must have been wondering, what on earth could have taken his old Army investigative unit out one by one. From the start I had no idea what kind of twist and turns this adventure was about to take me on. And the ending- wow!!- he did just what I would have if I could have. I love to get into the characters’ heads, Lee is a master of color, mood, calculation and a touch of humor.• I give this book a 4.75 star rating. And that is generous of me.
When Reacher had his Ah-ha moment and pieces together something is terribly wrong when he cannot find his 6th and 7th members to the team.
He does a great job in his presentation of Reacher, I feel as if he really is Reacher.
Yes it was but then I'd be late for work :)
I can't wait for book 12 to see what happens next!
A good story but predictable from about 25%-33% I to the story. Previous books had some unexpected twists or I was dead wrong on how I thought it would end. Unfortunately with this one I knew the ending at about the halfway through point.
it was nice to see Reacher with a group of people instead of being a loner with a hundred strangers trying to kill him. also, it was interesting that he has some self doubt regarding money and his lack of interest in making it.
dick hill as always was monotone and dry, but I'm learning to live with it.
Very well written and read, each book gives a bit more insight into the team dynamic and Reacher's personal history.
Why is Tom Cruise playing him though?
he may have the attitude but not the physical presence. if I do see the movie - possible, but not probable - I will not be able to expunge the notion of a spoiled celebrity getting his way to the detriment of the film.
The books though....a great listen.ans engaging story!
I've read & listened to several Reach novels but I don't think I've ever heard him refer to many people (if any) as his friends.Well it turns out Reacher does have friends,...and if you kill his friends he will kill you back. Great, story & as usual Dick Hill does an excellent job. Highly recommend.
This was definitely one of the best in the Jack Reacher series thus far. Killing Floor and One Shot being my two favorites, I'd probably rank this installment third. I thought there were some elements of the story that were not explained and it did seem to drag a little toward the end but overall an excellent performance and another great Reacher novel.
I am a retired psychologist with lots of time on my hands, thus I listen to a lot of books.
It is typical Jack Reacher novel with him avenging the deaths of his friends. I enjoyed it and would read it again but I liked 61 hours better.
