I enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that it was not exceptional. Jack Reacher is a character that I got to know in the first book, Killing Floor. I bought this one right after I read the first. I probably should have gone back to another series first, then purchase the book. It is definitely its own story. The backround from the first book was not as important as I thought it should have been. If you aren't familiar with Jack, go ahead and buy this. I'm sure I will buy more in the future. But I need a little break from the Reacher series.
But I really like the style of Lee Child. His writing is very compelling and wants you to read more and more.
This was an ok mystery. Not worthy of 5 stars but also not worthy of the one star review it previously received. The narration is very good. I listened to this in one sitting. Good way to pass a rainy day.
Please read the other reviews before spending a credit on this dismal sequel. I enjoyed the first book so much that this was a severe disappointment.
Uses the basis of a 12 step program and tries to reinvent it. She uses gratitude, spiritual awakening, etc ( common terms in 12 step programs) rearranges them and makes a "new" 10 step program that excuses addictive behaviors. Sorry honey but I tried your way and I got drunk again. Wish I was still able to return this title and can't.
I never read this book in school nor had I seen the film. What a great performance and novel. I had a feeling it would be great but I am throughly overwhelmed. This has got to be the best audible book I've ever listened to. The writing was above superb!
Finally a really well written mystery! I was so pleased with this audio book. The narration was excellent. I was originally going to use one of my credits for silkworm. But then I found out there was a previous novel, this one. I'm so glad that I was able to read this first. I can't wait to read the next one.
Kind of disappointing overall. Some really good stories but most of them are just a waste of time. As usual it seems with collections by King.
Another King novel reminiscent of It and Bag of Bones. It's been done before with a bit more flare. A long novel very interesting and well developed in the first 3/4 and coming to it's inevitable conclusion. Fun for a long drive or a rainy weekend.
This is not Gone Girl this is The Good Girl. The only thing the have In common is the word girl. By itself it reminded me of latter books by Steven King. A well thought out "mystery" woven through wonderful character development. The 4 narrators did s great job! No spoilers here... Just expect a good story.
No subtext in this "mystery" I came up with two very different story lines which could have been a lot more fun. But this novel is just what it appears to be. Nothing twisty or terribly different. A little disappointing to me at least. But a nice way to spend a rainy day listening.
This is pure King prose. Not so much a thriller but more of a character driven mystery. Ok for a quick read but not notable.
