It's constant movement forward. and not too many lead characters to keep up with .. well defined way of rendering each character.. good voice renderings..
Reacher of course. I purchased it for that reason..
well thats hard to say. I enjoy reading too. I like the feel of the book in my hand.. they BOTH have their own perks.. listening and reading both. Sorry can't really comment on that.
I prefer Reacher when he is not romantic.. lol.I like him more as a soldier than a lover.. but it does add some variety to the theme..
Having read & enjoyed the first 2 Reacher books, I was ready to continue to enjoy the series in order. Seems like I hit a dead end with Book 3.
This one was a tough one to get through...the 2 parallel story-lines (one boring and under-motivated, one corny when it's not cruel) take forever to merge...and when they do, the 'twist' involving the villain (one that any reader can see coming a mile away) just isn't enough to reward the slog to get to that point.
Along the way, the reader is treated to endless descriptive scenes that come off not as useful exposition, but page-filling. We all know what an airport or a row of apartment mailboxes looks like, or that it's hot in Texas, thanks. The cumulative effect is exhausting.
Contrast that to Baldacci's "John Puller" books that involve a similar character...but with a tighter, much leaner approach.
A production annoyance (not Child's fault): there's not enough of a narrative pause when changing scenarios from one story-line to another, so the reader is forced to take a second to realize who we're talking about...never a good thing when you're trying to get involved with a story.
One bright spot is Jonathan McClain's great read...much more enjoyable IMO than Dick Hill, who I'm not a fan of.
This one is probably an anomaly in the series, but it's going to be a while before I'll feel like checking in on Jack Reacher again.
Reacher always has almost miraculous physical prowess but in Tripwire he moves bigger than life and the rest have pretty impressive abilities also. You can beat Reacher to solving the senerio but probably not to soon in the story
Had to download the book twice. The first time was to listen to the book all the way through and the last two chapters twice. The second time that I downloaded the book was after I realized that the book had not downloaded completely the first time. The second to last chapter was only half there! SPOILER, the climax is in this chapter!! This completely ruined the ending of the story for me. I'm not sure how this could have avoided/detected in advance, but I'm challenging you out Audible. This is a chance to improve your service with a safeguard against partial downloads.
As child develops the character he also develops his skill. It's natural and enjoyable. Reacher is more cerebral and more of a real person. I can't wait for the next one.
Tripwire did not let me down the third installment was fantastic one of the best readers I've heard on Audible does a very good job
