    Story

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Ed says: "Comic book tough guy"
    "A fantastic start to the Reacher series"
    Overall

    I read Gone Tomorrow, which intrigued me and prompted me to go back to the earliest of Child's Reacher novels. This was an excellent story to introduce Jack Reacher to the world.

    Story

    "In 1960 I was given a transorbital, or 'ice pick' lobotomy. My stepmother arranged it. My father agreed to it. Dr. Walter Freeman, the father of the American lobotomy, told me he was going to do some 'tests'. It took 10 minutes and cost 200 dollars." Assisted by journalist/novelist Charles Fleming, Howard Dully recounts a family tragedy of Sophoclean proportions.

    James Gordon says: "Freeman's Folly"
    "Boring...as in, when will this be over?"
    Overall

    Some parts of this story were alright, but mostly the author just rambles on about his life story. The thing is, there is nothing distinguishable between before the lobotomy was performed and after as far as how he thinks and acts. Two of the chapters deal with the actual lobotomy, and the rest just seem to narrate this man's story. In my honest opinion, the story of one of the people he meets later on in life would probably have been more interesting than his own. All this being said, there are many times throughout the listen where I don't even remember that the lobotomy is the reason the book has been written. I found myself looking at my device hoping it was almost over and being disappointed again and again. Two stars for the parts of the story that were entertaining, even though those were the parts of the story where I lost track of the fact that the lobotomy was supposedly the reason for where he was and what he was doing.

    Story

    In a Chicago suburb, a dentist is met in his office parking lot by three men and ordered into the trunk of his Lexus. On a downtown sidewalk, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight by two men - practiced and confident - who stop them at gunpoint and hustle them into the same sedan.

    Keith says: "not the best but okay"
    "A good sequel..."
    Overall

    If Child expected to keep the reader's attention on Reacher with a sequel, this was the right book to write. Another great Reacher novel. Hill does a great job with the voices in the novel. The story fell only slightly short of "Killing Floor", but still a great listen.

    This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s. Children have become soldiers of choice. In the more than 50 conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. This is a rare and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty.

    Andy says: "best listen ever"
    "Very interesting"
    Overall

    I was encouraged by a friend to listen to this novel and was quite happy to take the advice. The book was a great listen. I could hardly turn it off because I wanted to follow this journey through to the end without interruption. When I had to put it down, I couldn't wait to pick it back up again. Great read all around.

    Story

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    I got just a little bored near the end with the whole hobby thing, but the vast majority of this book made for a great listen.

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Laura says: "Child Needs an Editor"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Just recently started listening to books. What a great way to get into them! This book gets you from Chapter 1 and keeps you going right up to the end with a great feeling of satisfaction! Definitely looking forward to reading (listening to) some of the other Reacher novels.
