Retitle it to How Reacher Thinks.
Wait! You mean this wasn't the screen play? "61 Hours" would make a great movie. I'd like to see some fresh Actor's and Actresses.
Kind of disappointed. Started from nowhere and ended up there.
Not as much action as previous Reacher novels. Hence the 4 stars.
As usual, Dick Hill is Jack Reacher. Gave his performance only 4 stars because I found Reacher's broken-nose voice to be off-putting. I know he had little choice due to it being mentioned in the book, but it was a bit grating.
At the end of the day, this one is as good or better than the best books from most other authors.
Hope Reacher's nose heals for the next one. (For which, I eagerly await.)
Jack's broken nose should have healed. Listening to a voice with nasal blockage the entire book got old very fast.
The book was going great until the end. To much detail of rooms and builtings and then 2 mintues of wraping up the story.
Get medical help for Jack;s nose.
Lee Child can do better.
Reacher hitchhikes, gets a ride, drives a car, and blinks his eyes. Too little action takes a long time to read (or listen). This is a monotonous book.
Lee Child is a favorite author, and I'll read his next book. But this book takes too much time for too little.
Dick Hill, the reader, does a brilliant job. Since Reacher's nose is broken, Hill has to read with a muffled voice and fuzzy words. He does a letter perfect job.
Hill's performance is worth the listen.
Lee Child, yes. Narrated by Dick Hill, no.
The storyline was intriguing and kept me listening despite the narration.
Almost anybody. I guess since Reacher has a nose injury, the intent was to have a nasal narration. Bad, bad idea.
The narration turned me off so much I almost didn't listen to the entire book. I love the Jack Reacher series, but the narration on this one was absolutely horrible!
Loved Jack Reacher's assualt on the compound. The description of the building interior made visualizing it possible and put me right inside.
Dick Hill is a great reader. I especially like the way he pronounces the hard 't' at word endings. But, the broken nose nasal sound in this book became so annoying towards the end that I found myself fast forwarding.
yes, and I tried
A very disappointing story and listen, so not Lee Child, or Jack Reacher, that I am questioning if LC even wrote it.
The thing about Jack Reacher is his spontaniety and the edge to his stories...this one riding in a car for hours, has neither.
I actually made it, because I made myself keep listening, through 3/4 of the book and finally said no way.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
The book starts off with Jack Reacher standing on the interstate junction waiting for a ride. He is picked up by car with two men and a woman, then the fun begins. The story has lots of tension and twists and turns to the plot. Lee Child adds two strong FBI women to the mix and does a good job switching back and forth the story of what is going on with Reacher and the law enforcement in pursuit. This is a bit different than the last few stories. Dick Hill, of course, did his usual great job. His portrayal of the speech sounds of a person with a broken nose was good. Child had a few phrases he repeated a number of times which was a bit annoying but other than that the book was great. Looking forward to the next book.
Enough with the female FBI agents, and home groaned terrorist. Why not some Mexican drug lords? And they were times I could not make what Dick Hill was saying.
I loved this performance. The story was so so. Dick Hill's interpretation of Reacher's broken nose speech was hilarious and made the book worth listening to. The story ending was not Lee Child's best nor did it showcase the many abilities of Reacher. On the other hand I can't wait for the next one!
yes, can't wait
Pretty much any scene where Sorenson learns how to investigate from Reacher
