I couldn't stop at bedtime and just kept going until it was over in the morning.So exciting!!
I think I'll dream about losing Molly in the airport.
There is basic, early Jack Reacher life style built into this story.
I really like the way Lee Child uses Jack Reacher's search for a part of obscure Americana to draw him into a situation. The initial police interaction is intense, but plausible.
I really like Dick Hill and I look for his performances of other authors' works (besides Lee Child). I actually prefer his earlier work over the most recent releases.
I can listen for hours, but as usual, I broke this one up into several sessions over about a week.
This was a great book and made me want to read more about the main character
Jack reacher. It's a little dry at the beginning but once you get into it, it's great.
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.
