This satisfying story brings together many threads from Reacher's past and creates a complicated, violent tale centering on loyalty to friends and dealing vengeance. The book paints the picture of Reacher as the roaming loner who comes in from the cold--for a while. First-rate Reacher.
I really enjoyed the other characters that came into play and the interaction Jack Reacher has with them. I find part of what I love about Reacher is his solo act in every story, but I love how the "Old Team" gets together in this novel.
Reacher being Reacher and causing total havoc in what I think is his most "revengeful" mission yet.
Dick Hill IS Jack Reacher in my mind now. He has a great tone, moves the story along and just has a great voice.
The Reacher Novels do not make me laugh or cry, but I do get excited and think, GET EM!
This is one of my more favorite Jack Reacher novels. Great book and gives some good insights into a character that everyone loves, but we still do not know that much about. Read it!
Not his best but in the top 5. Dick Hill does a great job.
Get past the first chapter and then it will make sense.
The title lacks imagination as does the story. Equally poor is the seeming need for the author to include unnecessary detail where there should have been more attention to the story line itself. I would not listen to it again nor would I recommend it to anyone else. The performance by Dick Hill saved it from a rating of one star.
I think the 6' 5" giant of a man described by Child as Jack Reacher.
All of the driving directions & lengthy descriptions of people and equipment.
Attention to the interactions of the characters appreciated.
No, I don't like to repeat things.
I'm inclined to love to listen to any book about service men.
Jack Reacher. love the sarcasm & matter of fact delivery.
nice baritone voice.
Absolutely. Dick Hill's intonations and phrasings give more depth to the characters, underscore the dry humor -- and overall make the plot more interesting.
The existential hero, who is steadfast in his loyalty and his retribution, creating a bit of fairness in our unfair world.
I love to read books but due to vision problems it is very hard. I have fond that listening is almost as good as reading them for myself.
We get to know some of the people from Reacher's past. This story gives him more of an outlook as to how the rest of his past team is doing in the "real" world.
I enjoyed getting to know Frances L. Neagley. I look forward to more of her, Dixon and O'Donnell
A few sections were a bit teary but quick
A must read
I loved this book. This was my first opportunity to read a Lee Child work. It kept me at the edge of edge of seat.
I do like the Jack Reacher books, I just don't find them "challenging." Lee Childs develops the story well, but always overlooks what ultimately becomes the cause of the problem. I listen to these stories when listening may not get all of my attention. It's no biggie if I miss parts of the book...I usually have them figured out halfway through anyway. I will buy more, and if you like the genre, you should definitely give this one a shot.
