I felt the first 4 hours was a waste of time and could have been summed up in half the time. When the story really began to pick up it become predictable especially since Jack had all the answers. I love the series so this will not stop me from continuing to love the series but this is the proverbial bump in the road. Keep listening and reading!
Very slow beginning and not sticking with the true Jack.
I Love Dick Hill period.
What happened to the narrator of the last 4 books?
The narrator go from loud talking to a whisper at the end of every sentence.
The previous narrator.
Cant even finish the book.
Great story. Less violent than the other's I've read so far. I totally enjoyed this. And who's lying? It could've gone either way. So much entwined in this complicated plot, but still easy to follow. I'm glad I stuck with the series. Definitely a good read if you like books that suck you in and you can't put them down. And I love the narrator. He has a very pleasant reading voice.
Plot is ridiculous so far, and excruciatingly slow to develop.
Yes--loved every Reacher book so far, but this one stinks
He's AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL at voices, particularly women and children. I've listened to hundreds of books and he's the WORST.
And, and, and, his volume reduces by about half when he's pathetically doing women and children--which means you need to listen at excessive volume to the rest of the book if you're interested in the dialogue.
May have to give up the Reacher series if future Hill performances are even close to this bad.
En Dieu Ma Foy
I'm usually highly critical of Lee Child because he tends to write about an area of life that I work in. He usually fails to grasp the nuances of law enforcement, but he seems to have done his homework this time around and hits the nail right on the head with this one. That being said, the only characters that are 100% believable in this outing of Jack Reacher is the law enforcement and the hit men. I had a really hard time finding the other characters believable and it hurt the story. However he made up for it in giving us a great mystery plot. So a story that should have gotten a 3 star rating gets a 4, and an ok book becomes an interesting one.
Dick Hill does a fantastic job as Jack Reacher and does this work justice. I really wish that all of the Jack Reacher books on Audible were read by Dick Hill, because he truly is the voice of Jack Reacher.
Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are always well written and entertaining with plenty of action. Never disappointed
The best part of Echo Burning was the attitude of Jack Reacher. He cares just enough to take action while remaining detached. The worst part of the book was its predictability. But that's to be expected a little with this genre in general.
The most interesting aspect was the twist involving illegal aliens and their trek into Texas. The least interesting was the little girl.
Dick Hill does a great job. Although he struggles with children's voices and at times it seemed forced.
Definitely worth the time. It's not a book that requires a ton of thought, just listen and enjoy the ride.
the story line wasnt all that interesting, the voices portrayed from both Carmen as well as Allison were annoying and nagging to the point i contemplated not finishing the story.
What A Plot
I Liked the way it kept me thinking if Carmen was lying or really telling the truth
Alway's a winner, I have listened to 6 so far, and I just got 3 more, they all are alway's a No 5, I have never been dissapointed.
I didn't laugh or cry, just kept me in suspense all thru the book
If you haven't listened to any of the 17 Book's, you have missed something, and the movie that was made on the book One Shot, well Tom Cruise did not fit the part of Jack Reacher, they needed someone more rugged and Larger to fit the part, but the movie was O.K. just the book goes into more detail.
While, I like Dick Hill's narration, the writing on this installment was greatly lacking! The Texas bashing was way overplayed and the phrase "He said nothing." was used no less than 50 times throughout the book. While this may seem like a small complaint, once I noticed it it was very distracting! Also, the superhuman leaps that Reacher makes to know exactly what has happened and what motives inspired actions are standard for Reacher books but in this case they are too numerous and too far fetched.
Probably not a Reacher book. Although, I will give him one last chance soon.
Very good as usual!
