I enjoyed most of the characters. I thought they were fairly well thought out and certainly what is amazing is that this is the authors first novel. The story was entertaining but not enthralling This is not a "page turner". Had I not been a big fan of the narrator I might not have finished it.
Karma is karma.
His narration gives added meaning to the way words are used. if you have listened to enough of his narrations you are familiar with his various "people". This doesn't detract from the book. I really don't care that all the women sound like Irene Kennedy or the men like Mitch Rapp.
I was not left hanging because the story was too fanciful for my limited imagination.
I have listened to this series faithfully and have enjoyed most of them. The latest iteration of Jack Reacher left me wanting. The narration often has carried the book when the plot was lacking but in this case I thought Dick Hill's performance a bit lackluster. He seemed to rush through the first half and it wasn't until the last half that he started to sound more like his usual Reacher.
The plot was formulaic and predictable for Lee Child. The characterization was developed in a spotty fashion.
The major premise of the book was weak. Reacher is not an operative on foreign soil--he's just a guy and the book ignored this major facet of the character. Also his getting out of all the different predicaments was too easy and predictable.
Dick Hill just wasn't his usual Reacher.
Reacher does but Personal was just to odd to keep it going
Between this book and using a midget for the movie I am beginning to lose faith. I would like to see the real Reacher not the fake operative.
I loved this performance. The story was so so. Dick Hill's interpretation of Reacher's broken nose speech was hilarious and made the book worth listening to. The story ending was not Lee Child's best nor did it showcase the many abilities of Reacher. On the other hand I can't wait for the next one!
yes, can't wait
Pretty much any scene where Sorenson learns how to investigate from Reacher
