Daughter of the King
Of course this book is well written, and Dick Hill did just the BEST job reading it, but I have a problem with what happens in the book. As often is the case, Reacher is the target of some evil people, due to his being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Usually his way of getting out of it is to kill the bad guys, but usually it's when he's about to be killed himself, i.e. self-defense. But without giving away the book, what bothered me was, at the time he got rid of the evil parties, they were awakened from sleep, were running away, and he murders them, and encourages another innocent to murder another. I can't abide by that. If they were gunning for him and the others at the time, no problem. But this was revenge murder. Didn't like that at all.
Sorry Mr. Child, that part of the book was not to my liking.
If you like Lee Child's Jack Reacher, you won't be disappointed. If you don't know Jack Reacher, now is a good time to introduce yourself to him. Entertaining listen.
Jack gets more bad-ass with every book. I really enjoyed this book. Some people don't like Dick Hill's reading but I think it fits the book and character perfectly.
no plot, no character development, boring
beating someone up, killing, beating someone up, killing, beating someone up, killing, beating someone up, killing,
rinse lather repeat
One of the more simplistic, predictable, and tedious novels I have ever listened to. It put me to sleep on more than one occasion - in the middle of day !
Not worthy of the Reacher franchise.
One of the best ever Jack Reacher novels. I was captured from the start to finish of the novel. In someways Reacher reminds me of Sherlock Holmes in his anticipation of the characters actions.
Wow...I sat on the edge of my seat throughout the entire reading. This story will capture you within the first five minutes and keep you tune in until the very last sentence. The narrater was excellent, the storyline was excellent, the plot was excellent. This is a must read! Enjoyed it!

I am a Reacher Creature. As with all of this series in less than ten minutes I am drawn into the book. Lee Child has the perfect formula for keeping you interested. You get to run down enough rabbit holes to feel you are privy to inside information on Jack Reacher, and he is confiding in you as the story develops. Dick Hill has the perfect voice for the story. He changes tones in his voice for the different characters, and never allows you to become confused as to which character is speaking. You will enjoy this selection.
I've enjoyed all of Jack Reacher's previous escapades. This title represents a shocking decline in the quality of story line, character development, plot and plausibility. Beyond that, Jack Reacher is bordering on homicidal mania. His challengers in the past displayed cunning, and proved worthy opponents for his incisive reasoning. Now, he just shoots them, and it's over. The setting is fabricated to the point of unbelievability. I wouldn't give up on the series because of this bad apple, but I don't recommend this one.
