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.
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.
Say something about yourself!
You know what Reacher is going to do, you're just not sure how he will pull it off.
Dick Hill is Reacher. He knows the character and is consistent with Reacher and the others.
Good action, typical Reacher, a bit overdone on the numbers. Nothing spectacular. Just decent Reacher. Excellent Dick Hill narration.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
I think I may listen to this again as this was my first Reacher book and I like the way Lee child writes this character. Reacher is very skilled at what he does and what he knows and I will be giving the whole series a listen to.
I think the ending could have been more force full but really it it didn't have to be.
Reacher, even tho all the others were done masterfully by Dick Hill. Reacher was a very good one.
No, not in this one. If I had to say anything it would be it was refreshing to see the main character be poor and not some high tech person with money. They show you he has know money but what he does have is a skill to help people he loves or cares about.
Reacher is worth your time as both Dick Hill gives him life and Lee Child gives him depth and a sense this is not just the same old tough guy story line but rather a nice change to a tough guy story line.
