track the subtle clues... Reacher wraps it sill up..
This was a good book, I really enjoyed it. I've listened to a number of Jack Reacher books previously, and this one had a "who dunnit" feel to it more than the others I've listened to. There were not as many action scenes in it, however, there was a lot of internal dialog that Reacher made and which the reader is allowed into, which I really liked.
If you're looking for a lot of shoot-em-up action spots, I'd skip this one, but if you like a good mystery story, and want to get a better look into who Reacher really is, definitely pick this one up, you won't be putting it down soon after.
middle -- ignoring command structure at every turn gets old.
the death ofv his Mother
Dick hill is always entertaining
Hard not to root for him to be okay throughout the story....yet we already know from precious books he's been out for some time. Great story and nice to read about Reacher's mom and Joe too.
This book does not fall in chronological order. It is a sort of prequel - going back to when he was still in the army. Now, this may annoy readers who need to have everything in order. But for me, it was great. In this story, Jack and his brother visit their mother in Paris, and they learn more about their family that they ever imagined. Reacher's character is is much more developed as a result. I hope and expect that this will carry forward in subsequent books.
I don't know why so many reviews are critical of the narrator, Dick Hill. He brings Jack Reacher completely to life. His inflections and speech affects are spot on for a grizzled, cynical loner like Reacher. I cannot imagine a better narrator.
The story is pretty good. The investigation is a bit slow at points, but it was an interesting story nonetheless, and it shows insights into military life.
thrilling, frustrating and upsetting
Jack of course! He is so honest about himself and I love the way he works out solving the mystery--he even makes mistakes at times.
Yes, many many books and for some reason I enjoyed him more this time than I have in the past.
Made me mad---but loved the way Jack took over the problem.
