I've seen Reacher across the nation. He never settles down; he's made a few changes. I just keep listening. He doesn't own anything except a toothbrush and that house many books back he didn't say he disposed of. He's a bad driver, and he's taller than Tom Cruise!
This audio book was weak. The story was contrived and riddled with repeated dialogue as if that lended a sense of style to the cliched patter. Dick Hill's narration was chock full of annoying stops and starts which sounded like he was mocking the writing instead of embellishing it. Yuck.
Probably not. I remember it and it was good to hear.
Most Reacher books.
Allows me to listen as a drive and do other things.
I liked his interaction with the woman. A female presence helps humanize Reacher.
The story was so convoluted and unbelievable. Characters were hard to follow and not believable.
had a better story
very disappointed. I have been a Jack Reacher fan but this will end that.
I have had difficulty finding great mysteries lately and may let my Audible subscription go.
I would definitely buy another Lee Child book. I will never download a book narrated by Dick Hill ever again
Almost any narrator would be preferable to Dick Hill. His enunciation and characterizations were annoying and one dimensional.
No follow up is necessary. This book provided appropriate closure to the story arc.

A younger voiced narrator
Try having a female character with equal or nearly equal smarts to Reacher. Also, he should be more creative. Instead of filling up paragraphs describing every minute rotation, he should beef up the story.
A younger man. Reacher sounds tired, not like a man who can spring into action without even warming up a muscle beforehand.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
This was the best Reacher yet. We loved it! Great story, it kept your mind going following his calculations and review of events. Need more like this one!
The story line was cookie cutter quality. The narrator wasn't compelling especially with the female voices.
The characters are silhouettes cavorting against a dim background and storyline. The action bursts (unbelievably) rather than builds. The ending is miraculous and mercifully short.
The narrator delivers each syllable as if he were narrating a film noir.
The title says it all for me - I never will waste my time with author or narrator again.
