I love this series, but with this book something is off with the audio.
The dynamic range (range between quietest and loudest) is very large and results in frequent volume adjustments... Sometimes turn up so you can hear the words and then shortly after turn down so you don't break an eardrum.
On top of that, the sound of the audio is off. I had to use an EQ to bring down the highs and boost the mids. Maybe the audiobook just needs to be re-encoded from the original audio??
I enjoyed this story, as I have enjoyed nearly all of Lee Child's Reacher stories. Unfortunately the narration is choppy and often drops off so that you cannot understand what is being said.
In this story Reacher has a team with him. Story has some holes in it and pace has problems. It takes too long for Story to get started and then ending comes too soon. One of the biggest problems is boring nemesis.
Long time LibraryThing member. Love to read a variety of books, usually more than one at a time.
Reacher is reunited with the team, or at least some of them, as there seems to be a force out to destroy them all. Hidden in the fugue of L.A., they try to unravel the mystery.
I enjoy these books now and then as a light escape from reality. About the same way I can enjoy a chick-lit, only different. It was enjoyable for what it is, a pretty good escape. My only complaint is that the author makes his hero to be the "super-intelligent-bad-ass-warrior" only he makes some stunningly stupid errors, which make it seem like he is a parent playing hide-n-seek, only pretending not to see or be seen and letting the child/bad guy get the advantage of him for a time.
And enjoyable enough listen. Good story, the narrator has a slightly annoying accent. The biggest irritation was the lack of knowledge by the writer about fire arms. You would think he would've done a little bit of research to have a more accurate story but no. Otherwise not too bad.
