  • A Wanted Man: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 17

    (1929)

    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.

    What did you like best about A Wanted Man? What did you like least?

    I have read or listened to all the Jack Reacher stories by Lee Child. This was the most disappointing of them all. Maybe Lee Child was caught up in the movie making of One Shot starring Tom Cruise while he was writting this story. There is much to be 'wanted' of the Wanted Man. It just didn't have the pizzazz of othe Jack Reacher stories. Sorry Lee, but I haven't given up on you yet. I look forward to the next Jack Reacher novel.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story was a bit confined to sitting in a car most of the time. I like to see Jack Reacher out and about and kicking some ...you know what.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    No favorites here.


    Was A Wanted Man worth the listening time?

    Sorry to say...but NO

    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico.

    What did you love best about Two Graves?

    This is no doubt the best Pendergast novel to date. Lots of action, twists and turns and many surprises. Don't pass this one up. 5 STARS


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    You don't want to put this book down if reading or if listening to Audible you won't want to turn it off.


    Which character – as performed by Rene Auberjonois – was your favorite?

    Pendergast...Rene Auberjonois is fantastic with all the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were quite a few moving elements to the story but I will not name any in particular. I do not want to ruin any aspect of the story for other listeners or readers.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Rene Auberjonois continues doing the Pendergast novels. He is great.

    Story
    (5469)

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Grover Gardner?

    I have and I will


    Would you recommend The Stand to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to any but the die hard fannatics of Stephen King.

    Now I know what the crew of the sailing ship 'HMS Endurance' went through in 1912


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I saw the TV 'Stand' but a Movie version would have to be cut considerably.


    Any additional comments?

    Bigger is definitely not better.

    Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations - the FBI and CIA among them - lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless “lifter” hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary.

    Ramon says: "Thrilling book with reasonable narrator"
    "Story 5 Stars. Narrator Zip!"
    Overall

    After several years of being cajoled by my brother to join Audible, I finally relented and joined up with great expectations.
    My first book...'Edge'...by Jeffery Deaver and narrated by Skipp Sudduth has almost required that I cancel my Audible account.
    But wait...The book selection was terrific. My brother always has suggested fantastic authors to me and he hasn't missed yet. Since the Deaver book was just issued and as I was looking forward to a new book by him and I had just signed up for Audible, I decided that was the one to try first. Wow, was I disappointed. Not with the story by Deaver but the narrator Skipp Sudduth. It was very difficult for me to tell when Mr. Sudduth changed from one character to another and as I srtuggled through this Audible book I also struggled with whether or not to cancel my account. Then my brother finally convinced me that this was only one book and I should listen to the 'Bloody Jack' series narrated by Katherine Kellgren. NOW SHE'S A NARRATOR. I listened to 20 minutes of Ms. Kellegren and that convinced me to stay with Audible.
    As for Skipp Sudduth, I think the publisher should find someone else to read Jeffery Deavers books especially the James Bond story soon to be published.
    Please, no more Skipp Sudduth.
