The reading by Dick Hill makes this easy to listen to. I have found that the narrator can make or break a story for me, so I was happy to have this one.
The end where the entire warehouse was filled with "xxx" (don't want to ruin it for anyone).
You can never go wrong with a book by lee Child, Jack Reacher is one of the toughest men I have read about, seem's like he can be anywhere at anytime..Love him.
I really liked this book. However, some of the dialogue and charachter interactions were a little unbelievable. That said, it was all around entertaining, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers.
The reader had a hard time staying in character. You could always tell when he switched characters because he would change his voice but shortly after it would go back to one of three voices.
Yes, this is a smart action packed thriller that never really falls into a formula. The series has been around for 16 years and 18 books to date. I am also a fan of Lee Childs' other books, so starting the Reacher Series was a natural choice for me.
Dick Hill's performance once again is on the mark. Dick Hill brings all the characters to life. I have been a fan of Dick Hill's narration through Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series and other Lee child books.
I have read some of the bad reviews, if people read the Publisher's Summary and a handful of reviews
As of this writing, this series has over 3200 positive reviews and approx. 200 two star or less reviews. If you read a handful of reviews you will know that this book contains a few coincidences that you have to bend if not suspend belief, but if you get past that this is a great book.
To anyone starting this series, I say read the publisher's summary and some of the reviews. Most of the bad reviews are over people saying that this book was not what they expected. I read the reviews and the summary and this first book surpassed my expectations.
It was my introduction to the Jack Reacher series ,recommended to me by a friend, and the descriptions of what Reacher is seeing and analyzing made for great reading.
Pretty much - always trying to figure out who the bad guys were.
This was my first one.
When Reacher finds out his brother is dead.
Since this book I purchased the rest of the series to date and am up to #10. I certainly will be following Lee Child from now on.
I would try another book, and have. I have since listened to 4 more in the series and like them all. Some are slow to begin but they are all good. I like Jack Reacher.
Make beginning catch your imagination quicker.
They are all good. I plan on listening to as many as I can get my hands on.
Why Tom Cruise to play a 6 foot 4 in, 200+ lbs
man? Isn't he like 5 foot 6?

I like the suspense of listening. When I read a book I have a habit of checking out the last pages to see the ending.
He is great to listen to. I enjoyed his performance.
Very good story from beginning to end. This was my introduction to Jack Reacher and I find him very interesting. In fact, I order the next three books in the series in paper format. The reason I ordered the next three in paper book format is because I read in reviews that the reader changed and he was not as good as Dick Hill who narrated Killing Floor. Dick Hill again narrates book 4 and the rest of the series. I think what really happens is that the image of a character (in this case, Jack Reacher) gets fixed by the first person you hear reading his voice and any other reader does not match your image. This makes a book uncomfortable. I am now hooked on Dick Hill's version of Reacher and am not going to get disappointed by a different voice.
Yes, You don't miss a beat. The narator adds so much to the book.
The plot was great. Very simular to The first Joe Marco novel.
All there was no slow parts
Never I listen in my car.
