I wouldn't recomend this book too highly. The story was good but sometimes the author goes into way too much details at the wrong times.
The story takes the reader into different directions, where you're not sure of the outcome until towards the end of the book.
No, I wasn't too impressed.
No, again becasue the details comes up at times when the story starts to get interested.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This is not my favorite series but it is very solid. I enjoy the storyline and there is enough suspense to keep me very interested. I plan on continuing the series to the end.
Early adopter, longtime listener, bookhungry.
Give this one a pass. The story is marred by too torture-y a villain, made almost laughable because the narrator Jonathan McClain made the serious error of using a voice exactly like the Austin Powers' villain Dr Evil. The girl is more than usually bland, her character mainly delineated by her extreme thinness, and the romance is anemic. Child must have been tired when he got to this one, and in many passages he simply repeats sentences—at one big reveal, Reacher actually has someone repeat a piece of news (which we've seen coming for about an hour) four times. Four times. Skip to the next, this one was a dud.
Slightly different tack on the Jack Reacher series.
Jack comes full circle and introduces his first commanding officer character.
Absolutely but I never have that much time. I prefer the unabridged series.
If you are a Jack Reacher fan (movie version not withstanding) you will not be dissapointed!
Scattered about, and tied up at the end with strenuous effort. Too dated to be timeless and too new to be a classic. The sexual tension between Reacher and Jodie doesn't come through.
Change the voice of the main bad guy. It sounded too much lick a character from Austin Powers.
I just didn't enjoy it as much as other Reacher stories.
Most characters were great.
Yes this is a Jack Reacher novel. He still owns nothing, replaces his dirty clothes with new ones, has a girl in the picture and a few references to past books. Beyond that is a whole new adventure. Well paced. Exciting. Just plug in new data into the formula and you have another good Jack Reacher novel. If you like these books, you won't be disappointed. If you are trying it out for the first time, you won't be disappointed. I'll keep listening as long as Lee Child keeps writing! Would like the original narrator to come back though.
I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
I enjoyed meeting more of the characters Jack knew from his Army days. His life fascinates me. When I listen to these books I feel like I can become a wanderer too. But I am nowhere near as fascinating as Reacher, so I have to live vicariously through his tales. But these audio books make that so easy.
Jack. It's all about Jack!
It appears there may be a return of a lover in book 4. I was starting to wonder if he would have a new lover in every book.
EVERYTHING, THEY MUST OF BEEN ON AIR PLANES 40% OF THE TIME
GET TO THE POINT AND STOP DELAYING THE END
MOST OF THEM
I'VE LISTENED TOO ALMOST 200 BOOKS, OTHER THAN , "THE DOME" THIS IS THE WORST BOOK I'VE EVER LISTENED TOO, IT JUST DRAGGED ON AND ON, THE F.B.I. SOUNDED LIKE THE KEYSTONE COPS AND WERE JUST AS STUPID!!!!!!!!!!
Typical of Lee Child, there are many critical plot elements that stretch credulity. The bad guy is over-stereotypied to the point of annoyance, but my biggest criticism is that the narrator is simply Awful…didn't they ask for a sample of this guy's work before they paid him to do the whole book?? I almost stopped listening on several occasions but was bored and plodded on as a result of a lazy curiosity to find out what happened. But don't follow my example, please.
