I love the whole story line and the way Mr. Child methodology in creating the story.
Excellent work as an voice actor and great at manipulating his voice to cover a broad range of characters.
No, I prefer to take my time when I listen to the audio books I buy. I use my books to zone out when I am cycling or sometimes walking the dog.
I loved it and I look forward to purchasing more of Lee Child's books on Jack Reacher once I finish the books I'm on now.
It engaged me. I wanted to dislike "Jack Ryan", but he had more likable characteristic than unlikable ones. I mean really we are all flawed. I also liked that the author seemed to understand how big bureaucracies work (or don't work) especially the Military.
Nope, not yet
Now one of my favorites, it has a great storyline and the narration is superb.
When Reacher and his brother go to visit their mother. It was very touching and made me miss my own mother.
This book has lots of action, great characters and a very good storey line.
Reacher is a great character and very much like a real person.
Tell us about yourself!
Reacher's history is released in pieces in short stories and at least one other book. His mother, brother, and some military background are given more depth here.
He is an Army MP so he is not the anonymous wanderer that we usually follow. He is expected to follow rules. He breaks protocol to tie together seemingly disparate crimes, but manages to tie everything together and uncover a conspiracy. There are relatively few hand-to-hand, bone crushing encounters in this book, but one has serious consequences for his future in the Army.
Dick Hill, again, does an excellent job of narrating.
Overall, this is another enjoyable Reacher adventure.
I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
This novel is a prequel to the rest and I enjoyed it. Reacher is more real -- a flawed, imperfect soldier here instead of the all-knowing character he has sometimes been in previous novels. I really liked this installment in the series and hope Mr Child continues to explore the background of Reacher and allows him to make mistakes more often. It is far more interesting.
Yes! This is a great series, and I have already gotten several friends hooked also.
Dick Hill's performances are consistent, and I love listening to him. He does a great job.
I always find something to laugh at in the books, but I don't do much crying - Just Nail Biting.
Books 9 & 10 are missing from Audible's library??? Any reason for this?
Don't enjoy duplicate plots, or deja vue. Wish I could be specific, but the Paris chapter and victim found on the road reminded me of another LC book.
The Enemy is a smart and intelligent mystery with an interesting, if somewhat far-fetched, plot and characters who seem both real and believable. It is the 8th book in the Reacher series but, from the perspective of the calendar, the first and hence a good book as an introduction to the character and the series.
While the plot is far-fetched and hard to credit, the development of the story, the clues, the characters and the situations in which we see all of them together are well drawn and the story as a whole hangs together very well. Since the whole story does not come out until the end it is easy to find yourself up until that point drawn in and I was, at points, unwilling to put the book down to take care of things that needed to be done.
The narration is first class and although I do not think of Jack Reacher so much as an honorable person as a persistent one who is unwilling to be chased off the track, he has admirable and honorable traits. However some of his actions are, in my view, unethical as well as illegal, but the book as a whole is satisfying. Recommended, with reservations.
