Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
I've read or listening to all of the Jack Reacher books. Lee Child is not losing any momentum with this character. This was outstanding in every way and Dick Hill (of course) did a superb job. I love his narrations anyway and he was masterful with 61 Hours.
Probably the worst Reacher novel I have heard. Boring, boring, and boring. Absolutely nothing worth listening to for the first 95% of the book. No Reacher kicking the shit out of smartass drunks, no sex(unless it happened when I could not stand it anymore and fast forwarded to the next chapter. And Dick Hill's narration of parts was just painful to listen to, especially his imitation of women talking.
While most Reacher novels are unusual and interesting, this was just a worthless dud.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is one of the best Reacher stories I have read. Lots of suspense and action. Learned more about Reacher than in the other books. Dick Hill is great in his reading of this story. I was surprised by the ending and can not wait for the next book. Hope there is one!
Again, a most entertaining book by Lee Child with great narration by Dick Hill. The story line is put together well, the ending a HUGE suprise.
Disjointed. Not a good effort. I think Lee Child has sold this series to somebody. Not even close to the other books. Skip it unless you are like me and buy each one as soon as they come out.
Great story, interesting and as always the characters are well developed. I also enjoy this narrator and his ability to tell the story as the author meant it to be told.
I am such a fan of this series and the narration by Dick Hill. This audible book was not a waste of a credit but It did leave me with the "huh" factor... thought it was predictable and the ending was weird.
I enjoyed this book immensely, as it was almost perfect. I love when a story is taking place in the middle of winter, where the weather itself becomes an integral character. There was the standard assortment of small town characters, and then some really great new characters which I enjoyed considerably.
The story was interesting, although I was able to figure out who the bad guy was very early on, which I hate. Even loaded with that knowledge I really liked Reacher in this story and the book has a whole was much better then his last outing.
The only really bad thing I can say is I HATE cliffhangers. I don't know if the editors got together last year and decided that this would be the year of the cliffhanger, but this is the second book in a row where it has ended with a cliffhanger. This ain't 1950's television where we need a cliffhanger to come back to watch next week.
All in all, a great Ritcher book, some great characters, decent plot, and a crapola cliffhanger. Any Reacher fan needs to read this, just be prepared to tune in next week kids!
