Loved this book. couldn't put it down. Not quite as good as Killing Floor, but really very good. the voice performance was great also. totally different from the first book, but really very good.
Great story, but the premise of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time (for the second time now) is too unbelievable. Hard to accept that. But once you do, it's a fun story.
While the narrator would probably be better suited to straight narration, I still enjoyed his performance. True, some of the characters sounded comical, but I bought the book to enjoy it, and enjoy it I did.
I just listened to books one and two. They are both a lot of fun and I recommend them. The narrator in book one is better, but sounds quite a bit older than 36. The narrator for book two sounds more believable age-wise, but has a few voice characters that are awful. On the whole they both do a fine job though. The story line in Die Trying kept me interested throughout the story while I found a few dull spots in Killing Floor. I also struggle with the Reacher character a bit. I don't think his training as an MP would give him the skills that he demonstrates in the story. Still, these are fun and I'll probably download another.
other detective series
no, but had a hard time not listening/reading. Had to buy kindlebook to keep reading
Lee Child is a master with the English language! A master at telling a story without wasting words. Jack reacher is about to enter the longest week of his life, he catch a little ass, makes a little love, kills some bad guys and eventually gets left on the side of the road to hitch way his home.
Weak characters. Repetitive story lines as writer tried to satisfy publishers requirements for novel length. Reader was not that bad but suffered from unbearable content. I don't mind crude language or violence which has some necessity for the novel but this is over the top. Child was recommended to me but has been crossed off my list at least for now.
Easily half the book
