In some parts of the book it gives lengthy descriptions that were rediculously llooong. I keep waiting for something interesting to happen, and the conversations are boring too. I have not finished it yet and I don't know if I will. However, the characters are well developed and there is a certain level of mystery that I like.
I'm not sure if I gave this 4-stars based on the book itself or because I enjoy the Jack Reacher character so much. Always exciting, always near-"superhuman" (hint: don't get in a bar fight with him, ever.) At any rate, this is all-in-all exciting, and with some unexpected plot twists that make it even a little bit unusual for this series. Highly recommended for fans of this genre.
This was extremely disappointing - as a novel and particularly when compared to every single one of Lee Child's previous novels. It was formulaic, predictable and shallow.
This required more than a "willing suspension of disbelief".
I want "Worth Dying For" to be back on track as a suspenseful novel with well drawn characters and dialogue and completely plausible.
Many explorations and adventures await!
Sadly disappointed, but eagerly listened to this book. As a Reacher fan I have to say this was the saddest and not so rewarding book of the Reacher series. Will hope the next book (if there is one) will be more interesting. Still recommend all Lee Child's books worth the money and the listen even if one is not as good as the rest.
I spent the money for it, so I am trying to finish it - but "oh my", it is tedious. The descriptions of meaningless and useless pieces are never ending - just fill the void so people will buy bulk.
Tell me what you really think! A total waste of any sum of money or any time to read or listen.
A very big disappointment, given how much I enjoyed his prior Jack Reacher works.
The countdown from 61 hours till the event throughout the book keeps the suspense constantly building. Fast paced with turns and twists throughout. There are several surprises. I would recommend this book if you like to be held on the edge of your seat.
Love Lee Child and the Jack Reacher character. Am in my car way more these days and decided to finally listen to a novel for the first time. I had turned this book down at my local library in anticipation of being able to listen to it instead. So major disappointment....I felt the narrator was way off. Don't know if I felt the voice was too old for Jack Reacher or not enough differences in the voices, but something was turning me off. I am only half way through and am forcing myself to listen to it.
Probably should have looked under the Great First Listens and found my first book there instead.
Will try something else but definitely not from this narrator.
I really enjoy the Reacher character and the situations he gets into - no matter how far fetched. This one didn't disappoint. Reacher was his typical self - a marshmallow with a sandpaper exterior. How clever Lee Child is with this ending. I won't even hint to not spoil it for those who will surely listen to this. Get it, listen to it and enjoy it. Lot's of movement, lots of good interesting story lines - highly recommend it.
