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.
I really loved the story. it was very well-told and highly unpredictable in the different turns and twists in the plot. my only complaint was that the reader didn't use a lot of tone fluctuation, sort of like a western movie. all of the characters talked in roughly the same Pace too. There wasn't a character that spoke faster than another or slower than another. that just hindered the natural flow of the story a little bit I think. the only other complaint I would make would be the authors over usage of the term "I said nothing."
These complaints were pretty minor though when looking at the overall book experience. I would listen to it again in a heartbeat.
I have enjoyed books 1 through 7 but this one was a bit boring. While this book was slow moving it was nice to get a little more history of Jack. Too much detail in some of the action scenes made me get bored and loose track of what was happening. It was an ok book. Also way to many "I said nothing".
maybe - if you like the Reacher series this one does give a background to his life prior to leaving the military.
Yes - but now know Reacher in the future he needs to write another one to explain how Reacher left the army in the rank he did. Left me wondering and hopefully as I go through the series it will be explained.
I like Reacher!
Not if Tom Cruise is Reacher, in my mind he is just not Reacher and so I will stick to the books only. Chris Hemsworth or Sean Bean might have been a better choice. I mean Tom Cruise is 5'7" and Hemsworth is 6'2" - it made no sense as Cruise is just not the Reacher I built in my own mind.
Great background story but the other plot couldn't have been slower and just dragged on. As another reader stated, "relieved when it was over" and I've not felt that way about any of the Reacher books. Onward to the next one!!
Audible fan!...Why didn't I discover audiobooks sooner? I would rather listen than watch.
Finally we get a little background of Jack Reacher and his day as an MP. I like the fact that Lee Child's novels can be stand alone books. This book is his eighth novel in the series yet it is the first (so far) in chronological order. His brother and mother are still alive and he is in the middle of an investigation that climbs to the highest echelons of the government. I think I have enjoyed this novel more than any others so far. (and I said that about the seventh). I do have one question though. What does Reacher do with his military pay?
