Enjoyed this book immensely , great story line and always kept you wondering where it was going with a very fine finish.
Lots of action, interaction between characters, and the background plot made it hard to turn off.
Dick Hill does a fabulous job interjecting not only the emotion of the moment but the different characters themselves.
Narrated by Dick Hill, this audiobook is the unabridged version, and almost fourteen hours of listening. The most interesting aspect of the story is the mystery of the ‘cargo’, as you won’t discover exactly what it is until the end of the novel. No spoilers, but it is as horrible as it gets. The adventures of Jack Reacher are typical, tough guy stuff, this lonely, high moral character hasn’t changed. Frankly, Reacher kills with a little too much abandon for my taste, but if you’re familiar with the Jack Reacher series, you probably think he never kills anybody that doesn’t need it. I’ve never read a Reacher novel I couldn’t finish, but I think the character has run his course. Not much new in character development … predictable behavior for him.
The way Reacher helps the people when they were being mistreated. He is always good to get the bullies taken care off
Always Reacher. I just don't think he should sleep with all the girls in these books
Yes but don' t have time. I have to sleep some
This story was much improved over the previous one. The mystery was fairly simple to figure out ( I read it in 2014 ), but the journey to it was engaging. I still have to give Dick Hill's narration effort a low score due to his habit of yelling in unnecessary places, but he has improved from 1 to 3 stars. So I do recommend this one. If you are looking for another engaging series try: Karin Slaughter's Will Tripp Series, and of course John Sandford's Prey Series.
What Jack told the motel cleaning lady what he thought her daughter would say to her to keep the mother from going in the barn.
When he reads the story you can feel all the emotions of the characters more so in Jack's character!
Most definitely!, cry, angry, sad, glad!
So far our favorite book! because of how Jack got the town to take responsibility.
I read all of the reacher books, but this one's logic didn't all tie together and it was honestly just a little out there.
Consistent, Good, Strong
No. The story is not nuanced enough to warrant a second read/listen.
Yes. It is your typical fiction fare. Nothing worth celebrating, but a good summer read. It's better than watching television, right? If you a familiar with the Reacher series, this is the exact same formula. It feels like a book that Child cobbled together to have an extra payday/book between the last book and Reacher's eventual hookup with the she-Reacher in Virginia.
Maybe. It did occur to me that this would be a good book for a long road trip, although I listened to it over the course of several days while commuting back and forth to work.
Not sure why people took issue with this one. I thought it was just as great as the others!
I would recommend this book to a friend because I enjoyed the characters growing, taking the risk to step up and stand up for what is right. I also enjoyed the twists in the plot that made it harder to get ahead of the story in my mind.
I enjoyed using trucks as a 'guided' missile firebomb. I never would have thought of that.
I have never been dissatisfied with any of Lee Child's book's, I love Jack Reacher, he keep's my interest until the very end. I am collecting all of his series...worth the price and the narrator is good also.
