    Story
    (224)

    From the bestselling author of The Double Bind, Skeletons at the Feast, and Secrets of Eden, comes a riveting and dramatic ghost story. In a dusty corner of a basement in a rambling Victorian house in northern New Hampshire, a door has long been sealed shut with 39 six-inch-long carriage bolts. The home's new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters.

    Story

    After reading some reviews of Bohjalian's new novel, I was looking forward to an eerie story to ease my work commute. Unfortunately, halfway through the story I am bogged down by my extreme dislike of the second person point of view that pops up in every other chapter. Each time the story switches to Chip Linton's point of view, I am distanced from the story because I hear the narrator saying "You" when he's talking about Chip. I find it so distracting that I've actually taken to fast forwarding through these chapters of the book. It's a shame because I think I would have been drawn into the story if the author had chosen to use the first person instead.

    Story
    (2016)

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Story

    As previous reviewers have noted, a large part of the problem of this book is the narrator's rendition of Reacher with a broken nose. On top of that, the plot is boring. I listened until I only had two hours of the book left, and I couldn't take it anymore. I didn't care what happened to the characters...even after 12 hours of time invested into their story. The FBI agents were caricatures of bumbling, inept police. Leave it to Reacher to step into the gap--except 12 hours into the book, he still hadn't. I've loved this series, but this book is terrible. Save your money and get something else.
