Lee Child's Reacher series is one my favorites because of the great story telling by Dick Hill and the wonderful and believable characters in the story line. Reacher has this way about him... that is so sarcastically Reacher! I love it! It was great to hear about his mother and brother and his clear attitude about honor and loyalty especially when exposing the government corruption in this episode. As with some of the other reviews, I too found it hard to stop listening. I am so happy that there is a new Reacher book on Audible.com this month! Enjoy
An excellent book but once again the male reader should not do the female part in an attempt to make it more realistic. Get a woman to read the part of the females.
Another great Reacher read! Child delves back into Reacher's past as an MP investigator with intrigue and subterfuge involving treason within the Army's highest ranks. The best and unique part of the story is the story of his mother, which lends a whole other angle of the stoic drifter. Highly recommended!!
This is one of my favorites. It gives a lot of background info on Reacher, his history with the military (one of the few books where he is actually still an enlisted officer) his family and has a pretty good plot line that isn't too foreseeable. For it being #8 in the series it really is a good place to begin after reading the killing floor in my opinion.
I generally like the Reacher books, and this one helps explain some of Reacher's background, so I'm glad I listened. But it has quite a convoluted, totally unbelievable plot. I also prefer the stories that are told in third person rather than first person. Most of the book is dialogue between Jack and his
I listened to the first few books by Lee Child the Jack Reacher series and I loved them but this one was a total disappointment. It was so boring. So many details and no excitement. But I look forward to the next one.
