No complaints. It is what it is. Jack being Jack, just a younger version. This book could have been the longest book ever written since Child decided to go there [there being the past when Jack was young a full of vim and vigor]. He could have gone down a thousand rabbit holes but he stayed pretty much on point with the story. I wouldn't have minded a couple rabbit holes though.
Jack Reacher is suppose to be 37 yrs old. The narrator's voice sounds much, much older, making it unbelievable that you are listening to the story of a young 37 yr. old. Very distracting and hard to enter the story because of it.
Love the author, love the previous books, but just can't get in to this one...I keep listening hoping that it will pick up...
Pass on this one. The writing is one dimensional and about three times as long as it needs to be. The narration is painfully melodramatic and tedious. It's not a bad storyline, but there are inaccuracies and totally improbable actions that destroy it's credibility. Descriptions are drawn out with no apparent reason and no added insight into the scene that they're trying to paint. Wish I hadn't wasted my credit.
I would recommend to anyone who like suspense, excitement and intrigue. Kept me guessing throughout, well written and an easy read (listen)
Reacher has turned into a vigilante and is no longer a likable character. I really dislike the way this series has turned int he last couple of books. Yuck.
I have hesitated in writing this review as I hate to be negative. However, I can barely finish listening to this audio book. The narration is so poor that it spoils the story. I can't imagine anyone talking the way these characters are presented. I will struggle through to the end but be prepared for the narration to get in the way of the story. This from a Lee Child, Jack Reacher enthusiast!
Multiple mysteries confront Reacher in a small Mississippi town and concludes with the story why he left the Army.
I can only say that it is so sad when the story is over and you have to wait until the next book!
