Not as enjoyable as the other Jack Reacher Series books that I've heard. Main story idea was fine. The FBI characters were written and portraied as obnoxious and stupid. That, and the overall narration, were strong distraction as I lisened.
I'll probably continue with the Jack Reacher Series until I tire.
This is a McClain narration. I did not care for his performance.
Make the law enforcement characters seem more professional.
Blind Vietnam veteran. Antique weapons collector. Outdoor enthusiast. Florida State University graduate with Business major. Owner of home health agency. registered nurse.
The narrator, to be fair, did a good job. To me, however, Jack Reacher IS narrator Dick Hill. Therefore I was a little disappointed. It is an exciting story and I recommend it.
It seems like the story was weak and fluffed up . The plot wasn't that great and the punchline was weaker. Seems to be something that was written without much thought. Dissappointed....hope the next is better.
Only if you are die hard to read the series then you need to read all.
The story line was good but falls completely apart a the end.
I feel like this book had a good story line and some surprises that I didn't see coming. I was very disappointed by the ending. I don't know who this Reacher guy is at the end of the book. For a tough know it all he just rolls over.
Good listen, like the series, like this book. Sorry to see that it probably isn't going to work out with Jack and his girl, but waiting for the next book or two to see what happens. I just heard about this author and the series this year because of the movie. Glad to find it, recomend it for those of you who want action, but don't necessarily need it to be in the form of a terrorist. Good twisted detective series.
Take out the annoying nasal narration for some of the characters.
No. I think just a one off for Child. Maybe he had a balloon mortgage payment coming up and dashed this one out.
Reacher - but he was overly sarcastic at times.
**SPOILER ALERT!!!** **SPOILER ALERT!!!****SPOILER ALERT!!!** Too easy to solve. Got it in the first 3rd. I think I may have liked better if I had read it instead of listening. The narrator's soft voice and genderless personal pronouns gave away that the killer was a woman. The robotic responses of the victims responses indicated that they were hypnotized.
When they discovered what the appliance boxes actually contained.
Jack Reacher races to save the painted ladies...
I love Jack Reacher books, and this one delivers.
The story line was quite good overall altough a little bit transparent. It contained interesting twists and turns but, unlike the other Reacher books I have listened to so far, I found that I could see more of them coming in advance than I am accustomed to.
The narrator was good.
I was severely put-off by the FBI characters. All fiction requires some greater or lesser degree of suspension of disbelief and I'm usually pretty tolerant where that's concerned. But the FBI charaters were beyond my considerable ability to suspend. I don't think it even slightly plausible that they are as stupid, rigid or devoid of ethics as portrayed. That hand was seriously over-played.
I like mysteries, not gory or too much romance. I can stand a little. I like law enforcement, lawyers and espionage, not to complicated.
This narrator is okay, but he IS NOT Jack Reacher. Please bring Dick Hill back.
As I said, the narrator is okay, but not as Jack Reacher. There's only one voice for Jack Reacher and that voice is Dick Hill.
No, especially with Tom Cruise in the role of Jack Reacher. Are you kidding me? He no longer has respect as a actor, and he is about as opposite to Jack Reacher as he can be.
Bring back Dick Hill.
On one hand if your a Reacher fan you have to read this book.
On the other hand if you've read other of his books and come back to this one like I did you will regret it.
This doesn't even sound like a Reacher book, the performance not him, the story not him, the way he speaks not him. I did not enjoy this book at all.
But... like me, you have to listen to it because it's a Reacher book. Try to enjoy.
