    From Stuart Smalley come calming visualizations that will take you to a safe and healing place...except for a few wrong turns along the way. Al Franken brought Stuart Smalley to prominence on Saturday Night Live, and although Stuart's not perfect (and that's okay), he offers a healing journey through the Dysfunctional Forest and other guided visualizations.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Dick Hill make this worth reading. I didn't like the story so much but the reader kept me going. I figured out the plot long before Reacher did and that was dissapointing


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

    Obvious plot


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill is the only voice for Jack Reacher!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life in hiding


    Any additional comments?

    Too predictable this time, I hope the next one is better.

    Jack Reacher is approached by a Secret Service agent who needs a favor. "I want to hire you to assassinate the Vice President of the United States," she asks. She is the newly appointed head of the VP's security detail and wants Reacher to try to penetrate her team's shield. He has the skills and the stealth and no one knows him. How else can she be sure her protection is truly effective?

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Without Fail the most enjoyable?

    I didn't know who to trust in this one. Felt like Reacher was always a step behind and on the wrong path all the time. About 75% into it I started seeing that Reacher was getting mad which is never good for the bad guy. Just like Michael Jordan, never make him mad!
    I really want vengeance just like Reacher did and you are really stress for him through the final showdown.


    What other book might you compare Without Fail to and why?

    Just like all the other Reacher book. Good adventure throughout.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Dick Hill "is" Jack Reacher.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A fathers sins


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book just like all the rest. I felt like it started a little slow at first and was more difficult to get into than some of the others, but once you saw the plot forming it was hard to put down.

    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    What aspect of Jonathan McClain’s performance would you have changed?

    He's OK, but Dick Hill is the best voice for Reacher.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book OK, but it was hard to really buy into. It seems like the story was a stretch and not well developed. I got through it but it didn't leave me wondering about the story or characters. This is probably one of my least favorite Bachman books that I have read so far. Rage is probably the best so far but it is not available anymore because of all the crazy people out there that like to blame books and movies for their stupid behavior.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    Yes, I usually enjoy all Stephen King books as they have very well developed characters and background that never translate well to film due to time constraints and viewers lack of attention. Any Stephen King book translated to a movie would require at least a four to 8 hour movie to give it justice. People to to read books more instead of waiting for the movies. The movies are actually much better if you have read the books first.


    What about Kate Nelligan’s performance did you like?

    Not bad, but didn't get me into it as much as other readers, but it could be that the story just wasn't as good at other books.


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

    maybe, but I doubt it due to the reasons I've listed above.

But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be.

    One of my favorites, I enjoyed the characters in this book and how it leaves you wondering about some of the characters and if they are more than they appear.

    The ending, it leaves some things to ponder about the Face and if there is far more to him than meets the eye.

    The boy

    Where does Tripwire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not a good as the first book in the series but still very enjoyable. I think Dick was a better reader in the first book but I got used to Jonathan in time but think Dick was a little better.


    What other book might you compare Tripwire to and why?

    Sigma Force series by James Rollins


    Did Jonathan McClain do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but I enjoyed Dick in the first book a little better but Jonathan was very good as well. I'd give Dick a 9 and Jonathan an 8 on a scale of ten.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I enjoyed it a great deal and had a hard time stopping.

    This was my first Reacher novel and I loved it! I had a hard time putting it down and really enjoyed it all the way through. Lost of action and suspense, VERY enjoyable. I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the series.

    I really enjoyed the Singma Force series by James Rollins and felt the action and suspense in this series so far is even better.

    Perfect Voice and reading style
