OMG. I'm not squeemish, but the details of the fights and shoot outs with Jack are AMAZINGLY detailed. Loved the narrator and the storyline. I will definitely continue this series on Audible.
Spellbounding story and a great narrator!
Enjoyed every minute of it
Jack is one of my favorate book characters
I have not read the print version, but I think I would have skipped those parts that I found tedious to listen - which would have made the reading experience more enjoyable
The small town Chief of Detectives
Not bad - good voice acting, good story though dated, interesting characters. But I found there to be many descriptive passages that, if reading, would have skipped, but listening I found tedious and repetitive.
Well paced and full of action, but the mistakes and implausible events are distracting and really unnecessary. For example, Reacher, who lives on the road without even a change of clothes, shows up in town and has the most beautiful woman in it taking him to bed within 24 hours, presumably unshaven and stinking. Then he kills about a dozen people, one after another, during the course of his alliance with members of the local police force. There are other flaws, but you get the idea.
No, but it may have turned me off from other Reacher novels.
There are already about 16 of them.
I have not read the print version.
The suspense, intrigue, & COOL "kick ass" attitude of Jack.
His voice was like the musical score of a good movie. It made the book live.
At the end it was nice to see the bad guys get their just reward. The old story that good prevails over evil is alive and well.
I am almost done with book two of series, & the magic is their again.
I do not prefer fiction so it is doubtful -- This was your chance to hook me-
The absurd lines and behavior of the main participants are just too 'cool.'
Anyone, including myself, who has been in these ultra-stress situations doesn't act like that-
Hope it makes a good movie-
The narrator was the best part of the book -
The story and the character development.
Jack Reacher because he's a badass.
Narrator doesn't can't do a good southern accent nor a good female voice. The southern female is the worst of both worlds.
I thought Jack Reacher was a bit more perceptive. Sherlock Holmes used to deductive reasoning to much greater effect.
Former military gives Sherlock Holmes a run for his money
I like the action scenes, when Jack Reacher kicked butt.
Dick Hill, as always, provides excellent narration that really adds to story. Characters are vivid, the mystery held our interest. As some have said, a bit implausible in a few areas, but that's why we read, right? To escape reality at times.... lol
