Most mystery stories focus on the particulars of a "typical" crime such as murder. Killing Floor is a double mystery - one being "who done it", the second being what is it they did? The combination of the two makes for a very interesting story line and keeps the reader guessing who the bad guys really are. The author does a good job of describing how the crime was committed, educating the listener without boring them. The narration is clear and easy to listen to.
It is in the top 15 of all the audiobooks I've listened to thus far... It is very well written, but I think the books get better as Lee Child writes.
The kill squad out at the house. Wow, Reacher really knew his craft!
Jack Reacher of course.
The love of money is the root of all evil...
The movie made me check this series out. I am glad that I took the time, the series is great. By the way the book that inspired the movie was awesome, the movie did the book justice and vice versa. Tom Cruise (even though he's not that tall) did Reacher justice. I'm on my third Reacher book!
With the movie coming out I thought I would listen to a couple of the Jack Reacher Books. This book was lacking in the grab you and hold your attention. There were a couple of twists, but all in all it was a bore.
I am a Tom Clancey fan. Great write and accurate descriptions of ops equipment.
The development of the character Jack Reacher and the interrelationship with the plot as it unfolded was wonderful.
I am a Clancey fan and Childs now has me hooked on Reacher!
Finding out the Identity of the man Reacher was charged with killing was a "Wow!" moment!
Without great narration - the audible is nothing. Dick Hill is a master and makes the book. I rate this at the top and it has made me want to get more Lee Child books.
Description and dialogue. Amazing first book. I had the speed up to 2 and it read like a graphic novel. I listen while driving, washing dishes, walking the dog and working out.
It's a fun read - like a little play.
I was honestly expecting much more. The narrator did his best but the story falls flat. Jack Reacher is a unrealistic protagonist, for whom everything falls into place. From the get-go things happen way too easily for this guy. The love-interest storyline seems a bit forced.
He starts off with a very interesting story at it's bones, but rushes the development.
Nothing really, he was pretty good.
This is just your average thriller. I wouldn't write it off entirely but it just was not for me.
I've fallen in love the Jack Reacher.
Interpretation of all the characters. They came to life.
So far, I've love all the Jack Reacher books.
Dick Hill could read the "yellow pages" and make it a "can't put it down" book!
Already listened twice as I enjoyed the story line THAT much
The variety of story inputs
This was my first Jack Reacher book and, if my memory serves me right, also my first Lee Child book. I thought the narrator did a fine job given the material, but the book could have been much better with more editing. I lost track of the authors abuse of ending many dialogue lines with "..., right?" I find it highly unlikely that all these characters would use that kind of language given their varying background. Since I usually keep to the less "gory" side of the mystery/techno/thriller aisle I was kind of put off by the gratuitous violence which in many situations seemed overkill. Some readers will probably find that kind of gory detail exhilarating, but I did not care for it. To end this review on a more positive note, I found the storyline somewhat plausible and it could work both geographically and chronologically.
