I love a good book
This was a very suspenseful story. The plot hooked me from the beginning, which usually happens when I read a Lee Child story. The ending was a surprise, so much so I had to go back, later, a few chapters and reread them. It was quite unexpected. I thought the narrator did a great job, even with the 6 year old. Yes the whining got a little old, but that was built into the story. This narrator kept me involved.
Being from Texas, I enjoyed the places in West Texas that were involved. I could have done without the extended agenda on illegal aliens and the seeming portrayal of Texas as bigots, but be that as it may, I still thoroughly enjoyed this story. The ending was worth it all.
I am an electrical engineer and have served a stint in the Navy. I own a company that installs custom home theater systems and other home entertainment products. My favorite books tend to be action fiction or fantasy. I like some romance but not too mushy
I like to uncover the plot and figure out the story as it unfolds. In this book, there was 8 hours of listening when no one knew what was happening. Then, I think Lee Child got tired of the story and had Jack Reacher just explain to the bad guys how he knew what they had done, and of course, they confessed because of the brilliance of his reasoning. It's too bad that the story did not unfold in a way the we could have learned some of the detail as Jack figured them out instead of him just explaining it all. It was also a far-fetched unbelievable story.
Yes, but I may have to wait a while or look more closely at the reviews.
With this narrator, Jack Reacher sounds like a old man, the women sound like drag gueens and the children are laughable, they are so bad.
Not many. I was very disappointed at the ending. Jack just walked away without so much as a bye.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This is just a very good series. The characters are interesting and Child always comes up with different and interesting plots. I always look forward to the next in the series and have yet to find them repetitious or dull. I am really enjoying the series and will finish it for sure unless something drastic happens.
Entertaining but not one of my Reacher favorites. I had a hard time liking the main female character and could not believe Reacher was going for her manipulations. She truly was being abused but she was just a pain in the a** and hard to care about.
I listened to this book because I hate paying for something and getting nothing from it. Actually I wasted my money and my time on this book. The plot was disappointing - just not well-conceived. It was just not believeable - especially when the search for Ellie begins.
Probably not anytime soon. I will look at the reviews not time.
Jack Reacher was well done. Dick Hill is an excellent performer for male characters, not so good for females.
I am inspired to be more careful about what I buy.
I enjoy Audible books immensely and nearly always have one on my iPhone.
Yes, I enjoy the character.
This book seemed to start out slower than others but sped up at the end.
The narrator was fine.
The book inspired me to continue reading the next book in the series
Someone who has never been to Texas
The overall impression that anyone with a southern accent is ignorant and violent
The narrator was fine.
Woman proclaiming Reacher wouldn't murder her white husband for her because she was Hispanic and that made him a racist.
The most disappointing Lee Child book I've ever read.
I LOVE the Jack Reacher books, love them. However this story is boring, flat, and the characters are annoying. The main "victim" Carmen enlists zero sympathy, she comes off as weak and manipulative. Reacher's female protagonist is supposed to be a sharp lawyer but crumbles into a panicky, whiny, indecisive babbling annoyance the second there is any action.
I think so.
Dick sounds like he's an old man that just ran up a hill then sat down to record and audio book - out of breathe. ALL his women end up being whiny (sorry to keep repeating that word, but he delivers flat female characters) to the point you hope they just get taken out. "Reeeeeeeeeeecher, whyyyyyyyyyyyy? We'll get huuuuuuuuuuuurt!" Ugh.
Reacher's deductive reveal is always great.
I hope the next few books are better.
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
Of course. I really like Jack. And Dick Hill's interpretation of Jack is spot on. Unfortunately the only female that I liked in this book was the one who was only six! She was more tenacious, stronger, funnier and more likable than any of the others. I really hope the female characters become more than cardboard cutouts of real, vivacious and interesting women. So far they are mostly sex partners who will never be revisited after the novel in which they are featured. And in this book they were even less likable than those others.
The female characters voices were more child-like than that of the child.
I read/listen extensively. This is my third Reacher book. I was able to figure it all out about 2/3 through. Not a good thing. I need more complexity without gimmicks (Child did not employ these, thank goodness).
