Not your typical action packed Reacher story. The story was long winded with little substance. I like Dick Hill but his nasally voice through the entire book was annoying an unnecessary. Child gave him an opportunity to stop but Dick missed it. This is the first Reacher book I have not liked. Heard them all. .
Utopia by Lincoln Child
Yes, I like his performances.
Disappointment may be too generous.
Typical Jack Reacher
A touch fantastic
I thought his rendition of different voices was pretty mediocre, particularly female voices.
An enjoyable read. Maybe I'm just getting burned out on Reacher.

I always enjoy the character, Jack Reacher. And this latest novel is no exception! Great story, moved fast, ended great!
Yes, I will certainly try another book by Lee Child. I would rather not listen to Dick Hill again. I was very disappointed in this book and the narrator. I thought the story was far too slow and at times appeared to be (no pun intended) "reaching" to move the story along. Mr. Childs seemed to be using all kinds of numbers (i.e.- statistics, measurements, etc.) to fill in the narrative. It got distracting after a while. The ending was a little too far fetched for me, as well. Overall, this was a big disappointment and I had to force myself to hang in there and finish it.
I did not care for it, myself. It was too far fetched for my taste.
After 17 books, Lee, Dick and I are on a first name basis: Jack Reacher. Those three names are synonymous with a great read. Credits for another good book go first to Lee Child for his writing skills. Second to Dick Hill for his excellent narration and to Audible for giving all of us access to another great "page turner".
Terrible dialog; poor plot
I have read all Lee Child and they keep getting worst, same thing happened with Ludlum; they start writing for money after the character runs out of steam.
He did not have much to work with; kudos for the different voices.
Scrap it and start over with better plot. Jack as a character is a cardboard copy of earlier versions.
I am finished with Lee Child; every recent book is worse than the previous one - again same phenomena with Ludlum. The early stories are clever and fresh; it degenerates into producing a title every year in hopes of a cover/author driven purchase.
Get a new character like Burke or Sanford or retire.
This book gives readers a more cerebral Reacher. He seems to have almost become a kinder more gentle soul, until there is no recourse but to act, then his reputation for problem solving takes flight.
In the entire series, Reacher has always been "the" character.
Reacher. I mean, he is awesome.
His character. He has maintained that character perfectly through all of the books.
Yes. All of Lee Child's books are that way and nearly every book that Dick Hill has narrated.
Dick Hill is letting Reacher's vocal traits carry over to all of the other characters. So,while I really like his Reacher characterization; I don't like it when that characterization is also the various male and female FBI agents. And even the bad guys. The story was not QUITE as good as the others. It was good, don't get me wrong, but the end was a Little bit of a disappointment to me. I still strongly recommend the book and the narrator.
Not the Best of lee Child...still Reacher is Reacher
The Plot was very hard to follow
Ive listened to dozens...he is one of the best
Look for the net Vince Flyn thriller...
Can't stop listening.
All Lee Child Books. Love them all.
What part of Tom Cruise and Jack Reacher's 6' 5" frame match up? Please???
