the way that the story started coming out was very interesting classic Jack Reacher. part of it got a little too wordy but rounded out okay.
The storyline is very suspenseful from the first page.
John Grisham's "A Time to Kill" is the first thing that comes to mind and I don't know why. On second thought, Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest".
How DIDN'T the narrator detract from the book? His delivery is monotone. Deplorable performance. What a total let down after Dick Hill's beautiful voice in "The Killing Floor." Were this not a really good story I would have stopped listening altogether.
The Jack Reacher series is extensive. Despite the narrator Book 2 is better than Book 1 and I loved that. Book 3 is on my horizon...
Decent Jack Reacher story not the best, but not the worst.
The narrator was terrible. Johnathan McClain was so bad, so terrible I couldn't help but laugh at times. He has about 4 voices in his arsenal, they're all awful. Sometimes he would assign a character a particular accent or tone of voice or manner of speech etc. Then just drop it half way thru. He was so bad, that I couldn't stop listening. I needed a good laugh and got it.
Not too fond of the readers voices, but overall I was able to stay interested. To be specific on the reader, several of the voices seem to be too similar.
Otherwise, another great adventure. Looking forward to Tripwire.
love this series. glad i heard about the author on an NPR interview. jack is a great hero hope he actually gets to keep the girl in one of these books
This is the first book I have experienced by Lee Child. I loved the way he unfolded the story and how he takes us through the way the characters put things together. I also enjoyed the narration of Jonathan McClain very much. Unfortunately for me, I am having a rough time listening to the other Reacher novels that are not read by McClain. I think his voice is Jack Reacher for me! Guess I have some reading to do!
