Any attention whatsoever to the plot, editing, character development.
Yes, because I'm a huge fan of their writing, but in this book it seemed as if they'd dumped all their writing notes into a box and sent it off to a graduate student to fit into something resembling a book. Simply dreadful.
Rene did the best he could with a disappointing script.
Corinne, her father, Constance, Fowler, everyone in Brazil....
Better yet. Cut them all and start over.
I'm a huge fan of these authors. This book is an utter disappointment.
I am a huge Lee Child fan and have listened to nearly all of the Jack Reacher novels from audible within the last two months. This one is a huge disappointment. To start, the recording quality is poor -- one chapter is suddenly louder than the last, then reverts to quiet again at a whim. Not pleasant to have in one's ears. Second, Jack is better than he is portrayed here. As are his SI friends. They stumble around in this book as if they have no training at all. Finally, Jack often find himself in bed with someone at some point -- in this novel that entire line of subplot is absurd. This won't stop me from listening to every last Lee Child book (particularly if Dick Hill continues to narrate them), but I can't help but think he phoned this one in.
