Dick Hill does a great Jack Reacher! By far the best audio book series I have found.
The characters are great. Jack's sense of timing. Triumph over evil doers.
Yes. He is great. This is right up there with the rest.
Money can't buy you love, but it just might get you killed!
Go for The Affair by Lee Child first, and then go for The Killing Floor.
The Affair is basically the prequel to The Killing Floor; although it was written much later.
Both are excellent!
Anybody that likes typical and predictable crime novels
The narration sounded like something out of a 1930's crime movie. "You dirty rat, you killed my brother".
I didn't read the print version.
Jack Reacher was my favorite because he was fearless, focused, and had strong moral convictions.
Jack Reacher - I thought his voice was perfect.
I couldn't stop listening and can't wait to read the next ones in the series.
I didn't like the voices of the female characters. There really needed to be a female performing those characters. Dick Hill's deep voice was a little off putting as a woman.
I listen to a wide variety of books so this would be difficult to rank but it this category I really enjoyed it
just a good listen
Very enjoyable -pulled you into the story quickly
Complicated relationship with his brother
I've been wanting to read Lee Child for some time and it was definitely well spent time.
There were certainly twists and turns BUT following some paths down further would make it seem more real, however, this is my first read of Lee Child and I don't know his style. The story had all the "sitting on the edge of your seat" type ending that this book requires. I love the character development and writing style. I think I've found an author to explore!
Jack Reacher, of course. He's a bad ass that can rip folks eyes and throats out while thinking about it rationally. They (author and narrator) did a fantastic job of getting into his head and projecting the disconnected and rational thinking that would need to happen in such a moment.
Jack Reacher is just too hurt and broken to not follow up!
I like the character of Reacher.
I always love how detailed books get but there were moments where it was almost too detailed. It almost felt like it dragged on as if the author was trying to fill time. I understand that you want to give detail but in doing that, it hurt the pacing a bit.
Overall though I would recommend this book, It was a fun read and I really enjoyed the narrator.
Have listened to about 5 or 6 Reacher novels and enjoyed all of them until I got to this one. So glad I didn't run into this one sooner (It was 2nd in the series) or I never would have listened to others. There are so many problems with this book I don't know where to begin. Nothing hangs together. Here are just a few examples: Characters are alternately smart or obtuse apparently based on the author's whim. The author goes on and on about what a small town the setting is, but Reacher has to explain to the drug store clerk that he's a stranger in town??? There's pressure to expose the bad guys by a certain deadline because some evidence will disappear--but according to the plot that Child constructed, the deadline just means the bad guys will go back to their old patterns of behavior,which means more evidence of the crime will be appearing regularly. So unless you're a diehard Reacher fan, skip this entry in the series.
I'm adicted to Lee Child novels. Period. I was sorry to see Reacher leave his lady police officer friend in the end to move on to more adventures. His nature but not mine.
All his plots keep me on the edge of my seat. Can't put my Kindle down to do anything else.
Always something else about to happen or leading up to the next stage in the adventure. As I said, I'm adicted.
The way he changes his voice or the inflection in it for the characters.
You bet! I turn on my Kindle when going to bed and listen throughout the night.
Dick CANNOT do a woman's voice to save his life. Not that a male should sound like a woman, but the breathy "I am so helpless" tone he uses for supposedly a strong female police officer made me want to shoot myself. I literally finished this book because I was on a long drive and didn't have another option.
Rosco. She's the best policewoman supposedly and she's turned into a total sex object that needs to be rescued and cries all the time. Really? Really? Can you treat female characters with a little more depth?
I finished it so it wasn't a total waste of time. It's not as intense 8r fast paced as Andrew Peterson's Nathan McBride or Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp.
But I am going to try the next one and see how it goes. It's definitely fiction because the story line is so far fetched you can't even pretend it's possible,
Didn't have a favorite character. They weren't very well developed. And EVERYONE of them said "right." at the end of just about every sentance. Sure wish there was a way to count them so you would know that I am not exaggerating even a tiny bit.
Dick Hill is one of my favorites. When I'm looking for a new series/author I sometimes search narrator's because I know tye performance will be great. Bad narrator's will ruin a great book.
He's very consistent with character voice throughout an entire series. He's very good at portraying the tone and intensity of what's happening.
