This is the first Lee Child book I have read (well...listened to - downloaded the audio edition).
Entertaining, good character development, interesting storyline. I plan to start at the beginning of the series and continue because of this book.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Excellent story line, great narration, Jack Reacher does it again with his off-the-grid stealth and past military experience. This series by Lee Child is first rate. I had to deduct one star for the rather abrupt ending . . . would have liked a smoother finish . . . but well worth the listen.
I really wanted to love it. this book is generally well written and the characters are relatable. Unfortunately, to call the ending anticlimactic is an understatement; its simply wrong. Without spoiling anything all I will say is guns do not work (or specifically fail to work) in the way described.
Summary, pretty well written, horrible conclusion.
The stories are always great, but the narration is what makes Lee Child thrillers come alive.
This book had all the elements: personal story, politics, excitement, and love interest. It will not disappoint.
I am English married to American. I have Been an RN for 33 years, I work in OR. We have Three children (all grown now).
As with all Jack Reacher books he is the best at what he does. From another Brit please Mr. Child keep on writing.
I've been reading the Jack Reacher books sequentially, this one is the best yet. It includes a look at the Secret Service and introduces a new, and hopefully continuing, character from Jack's MP past.
Love my Reacher!!
I love all the action scenes and how they are read by the narrator. I love listening to Jack Reacher's thought processes and trying to figure out what he already has.
I love the way Dick Hill narrates all the Jack Reacher books! He does a great job of getting into the action and distinguishing between characters with different voices.
typical Reacher - great story, thrilling action. Always enjoy these action packed books and can't wait to listen to more.
