I would listen to Killing Floor again because it was so entertaining.
I enjoyed the the characters and various twists in the plot.
Dick Hill is fabulous and he brings the story to life.
This brutal novel keeps you guessing the whole way through and the action is intense and exciting. I read strictly for entertainment, and this book had me hooked from page one and entertained me from beginning to end.
Reacher is a tough and compelling character who brings a keen mind and a brutal streak to his investigation. Partnering with an older but still robust detective and a beautiful cop, Reacher soon finds himself immersed in a conspiracy. The criminals are like the Mafia, complete with a “Don”. They use torture and murder to further their own agenda. This includes killing their own members to keep the others in line.
Child's characters are a well-written group that generally avoids cliché.
The plot offers a lot of insight into the corrupt world of international currency and counterfeiting. The discussion near the end on the distribution and printing of money was interesting and informative.
This is a suspenseful, detailed thriller with a great plot. This book is a riveting "Page-turner."
I am uncomplicated.
I have not read the print version of this book.
Dick Hill is one of my very favorite performers. From Southern Belle to Boston Cop to 90 year old men, this guy has the velvet voice. One of the best performers out there.
There were so many "NO WAY" moments in this book. So many twists and turns that I often held my breath. Fast paced and thrilling.
I cannot wait to listen to the next Jack Reacher installment (Die Trying).
and kept it. The story was good right away. Dragged on a bit towards the end but overall a great story. I also really liked the narrator.
There were too many to name. This story takes place in a very small town where everyone knows everyone else.The bad guys were ruthless and would do ANYTHING to reach their goal which was to keep their illegal activities in full operation .Business as usual.While the good guys Jack Reacher and company were just as relentless in their search for truth, justice and revenge.Not a dull moment in the entire story!
Excellent interpretation of each character. His voice made each scene come alive in your mind's eye.
Graphic violence. This story went on and on and eventually got to a point where I just stopped listening. Not my type of story. Others may enjoy. Very masculine point of view.
Yeah it was a great book unlike some others from the series.
I would'nt want to drop any spoilers, but i promise the first scene will draw you in to more great scenes
No, it was pretty intense, i felt like i needed a break after certain chapters.
The story was very captivating, but it may be to violent for some... not me though. :P
FORTY SOMETHING THUG FOR HIRE WHO ENJOYS A GOOD BOOK.
I HEARD ALOT ABOUT THIS GUY LEE CHILD, AND FINALLY GAVE HIM A CHANCE TO PROVE ALL THE HYPE THROWN OUT THERE ABOUT HIS SERIES CHARACTER JACK REACHER. I GOTTA SAY, MOST OF IT IS ON TARGET. THE STORY IS ENJOYABLE, AND THE CHARACTER OF JACK REACHER IS DEFINETLY WORTH EXPLORING. BUT WHAT THIS WAS MISSING WAS A GOOD EDITOR. THERE ARE PASSAGES THAT JUST SEEM TO GO ON FOREVER. I EVEN HIT THE FAST FORWARD A COUPLE TIMES, AND GUESS WHAT? ---- I DIDN'T MISS A THING. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT THIS WAS NOT ENJOYABLE. THE STORY AND ITS SET UP WERE WORTH THE OVERDRAWN PROSE, AND ITS ACTION SEQUENCES ARE FULL OF THE GUTSY VIOLENCE WE APPRECIATE FROM A MAN OF ACTION BRINGING DOWN JUSTICE ON SOME VERY BAD DUDES. AND I GUESS THAT IS THE DRAW HERE. THE VILLAINS ARE REALLY BAD GUYS, WHO DO SOME REALLY BAD THINGS TO PEOPLE. AND WHEN REACHER GETS TO DISPENSING AN EYE FOR AN EYE THERE IS A CERTAIN FEELING OF SATISFACTION TO BE GAINED. NARRATOR DICK HILL DID A WORKMAN'S JOB WITH THE AUTHOR'S CHARACTERS. WAS I BLOWN AWAY? NOT REALLY. WILL I COME BACK FOR MORE OF LEE CHILD AND HIS CHARACTER, JACK REACHER. YES, I THINK I WILL.
The first of the series!! Very good. not all preoccupied with romance, excellent, rich characters. the narrator brings them to life, too.
Early Childhood Professional. Avid Reader since birth. Beginner at Audio Books, so far I enjoy them.
I don't remember how I came across this book, but I'm surprised I haven't read them sooner. If you are looking for a thrill that's not totally gory, and suspense that will keep you interested this is a great series for you.
The main character Lee Child has created has quite a personality. Dick Hill's narration brings this out in ways that will actually make you laugh at the character. There are other nuances of Child's writing that can be lost when just reading, but you'll catch them by listening.
