The Jack Reacher character is a good one, and the overall character journey is enjoyable. But this book contained entirely too much unnecessary chatter between characters, and far too much unnecessary detail. Almost as though the author was struggling to meet a word count. Could have dropped a 1/4 of the word load, and still had a smooth story.
Really struggled to reach the end of this one. Excessive word count made the ending a relief, but in an anticlimactic way. I hope the next is better.
As with all Lee Childs reacher novels, his hero is too much of a hero. Still I enjoy switching off to them, and when on sale, do end up buying and listening
Another great Reacher tale with a great reading performance. Work your way through this series and you won't be disappointed.
Every sentence was so wordy and descriptive it bored me. Not that exciting and I love Lee Child.
Less talk more intrigue.
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.
