The story was pretty compelling.
The murder of the police chief and his wife.
A good depiction of a Boston police detective.
Don't mess with Jack Reacher!
I loved that the author did not use a lot of profanity in his story.
Yes, Good story.
I don't normally rate the stories I listen too, but this was exceptional. I listen to books while I work and like them to drag out over several days. This one I started and had to keep listening way into the night two days in a role to finish. Excellent story. THanks.
If I remember English Lit correctly, your typical novel is supposed to be about character growth and transition ... or something like that. Not here. Old Jack Reacher starts the story as a smug, violent b**rd and ends it the same way, albeit after quite a few dead people, damaged property, and wrecked cars.
Don't get me wrong, as an action movie it's great. Wow, even. Loved how the action just never seemed to stop. But unfortunately I have also just listened to Jim Butcher's new Harry Dresden novel, Cold Days. Harry definitely changed, grew and discovered things about himself while ALSO blowing up things, wrecking cars, etc., etc. At the end of Cold Days I felt like Harry had grown. At the end of Killing Floor, I felt that Jack Reacher was not only betraying the standards of American jurisprudence, he was also going on to more novels with more mayhem for mayhem's sake.
Not sure if that came through right. Good story but way too alpha male for me. Anyway, as an action story it was satisfyingly violent. I won't be reading any more in the series, however.
And after reading this story, I won't be watching 5 foot something Tom Cruise play 6 foot 4 inch Jack Reacher. Dissonance!
Good story line.
any of the Jack Reacher
All of them
When Jack found out it was his brother.
Had potential but to predictable. Villains were never fleshed out and were dispatched with ease by the hero.
Better than story.
Dick Hill is one of my top 2 narrators. He narrates clearly and brings characters and situations to life. He adds a dimension to every novel he reads by clearly defining each characters persona, and consistently maintaining it throughout the read.
The story was good, interesting, well read. The lead character however was a typical American superman - a guy who looks awesome, knows everything, gets the girl, never gets hurt and is a killing machine. Boring and juvenile stock characters.
Yes. It's a captivating storyline and the reader made it super easy to differentiate characters and again, the story just kept me on the edge of my seat... of my car.
Read it before the movie comes out this December.
