I am not really qualified to write a review as I never got past the first five minutes. In this time, I was told that, if I was not the person to whom the book was dedicated, I should not be reading it. Then I was told that the book contained lots of f!@#$% swearing, lots of graphic sex and other f!@@##$ stuff and if I didn' like it then I should find another F$%^^#@ book to read.
I choose to find another book .... what a pity that I cannot return this one and get my money back. I am not a prude but this sort of gratuitious and abusive introduction does not suit my style of being entertained.
A great story, dated in a technological sense but very original in its concept. I enjoyed it from beggining to end. The story is never dull, always something happening to draw you further along the path to the end of the book.
I absolutly loved as one of the best books ever, Connie's book Not To Mention The Dog etc etc. I just had to have another of her books. But the narrator of the story is hopeless. Her characterisations leave me bewildered as to who is speaking and which character is which. Her voice fades at the end of sentances making it impossible to follow the story. I had to give up after only a chapter to two. I will however, go and buy a hardcopy of the book, I loved "The Dog" so much.
Very dissapointed. No stars for performance, can't comment on the story as I never got to hear it.
This is my second Jack Reacher story and I enjoyed it as much as the first. A great character, totally implausible, totally impossible to exist, but then again, so is superman and batman and they personify why superheros make great reading. Escapism, fantasy world, a place where no human has been before - and never can. But who cares.
I have enough real s--t in my life so escapism with a superhero is great. And the story lines are also unrealistic, but again, I read for entertainment, and I find Jack to be a very entertaining character, A goody with a touch of naughty - and gets away with murder.
I also enjoy Dick Hill's reading. He added a lot of atmosphere to the story, his reading and characterisations were very professionally done.
I am ordering another Jack Reacher Fantasy
Humour, good stroyline, great plot, continued mystery -
Obviously the narrator
Too many to mention
Mmmmmm, maybe, but it is a long book so it would become tiring I feel.
Give me more from this authoress
