A Wanted Man: Jack Reacher 17 | [Lee Child]

A Wanted Man: Jack Reacher 17

When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

Publisher's Summary

When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....

Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?

With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best.

What the Critics Say

“He could take out Bond, Dirty Harry, Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt with both hands tied behind his back. And then sleep with their girlfriends two at a time before getting the last bus out of town” (Sun)

    "Bad...very bad"

    Not Lee Childs best work. Reacher has been my favour character for years but this was a dull & boring book. I am very glad that I read all the other Reacher books before Tom Cruise was chosen to portray the character. Every now and then one pictures the diminutive Tom Cruise wearing lifts as Reacher.... it does not help

    "Not enough depth"

    Not much to this one I'm afraid, all a bit too linear and lacking a defined bad guy. Won't stop me listening to the next one though

    "another Reacher novel that never gets old"

    this time Reacher is minding his own business looking to hitch a ride to Virginia to meet the woman he spoke to because she sounded attractive!! meantime his ride with 2 men and a woman turns out to be more interesting than even he knew!

    "Great"

    A gripping story line right to the end, each chapter leaves you wanting more. The only downside is that like all good story it has to end somewhere.

    Built slowly as with all Reacher books. The unexpected twist at the end was riveting

    "disappointed"
    Would you try another book written by Lee Child or narrated by Jeff Harding?

    Yes. I am having to write more words in here than I want because the review page requires at least least 15 words in each field or you cannot submit. Probably best not to ask questions that promt a single word reply then


    Has A Wanted Man put you off other books in this genre?

    No. Again I'm having to fill here. Synics might day this is to dissuade people from submitting negative reviews in the first place.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    This is not an opportunity to give a review is a series of very specific questions. I have no idea what the narrator could have done better with this plodding tome


    Did A Wanted Man inspire you to do anything?

    Pardon me? Very soft and fluffy man. It inspired me to get through it fast as possible and delete it.


    Any additional comments?

    Aha! Finally. Worst reacher yet for me.

    "Sponsored by McDonalds"

    The worst Reacher novel by far, boring, repetitive and 11 times proudly product placed a well known fast food chain.



    Think this is turning into a cash cow, needs to take a break, go back to the drawing board and come back with a little bit of a different storyline.

    "JACK REACHER ADDICT"

    Who wouldn't want Reacher on their side in a fight? I am now finding the Reacher series very repetitive and hard to tell apart. Maybe there are only so many plausible (a bit, anyway) plots available for a homeless, rootless man. Of the later books in the series, the only one which really grabbed my interest was the one set in the past when Reacher was still a military policeman (The Affair). Perhaps that's the way to go.

    "A man for all readers"

    Lee Child is one of those exceptional writers who writes for all types of reader, whether its action & adventure, horror or romance. He has everything covered and it does not put you off when for example you want to be reading a spy thriller he has it in spades, but he also puts in a little romance for our hero and he really seems to fall in love with every leading lady instead of the love em and leave em James Bond. I am so excited that et are finally putting jack reacher (our somewhat tarnished hero) onto the silver screen as it will bring a whole new readership to the books.

    "Unhelpful format"

    I have been unable to listen to this book as I have been unable to make the odd AA format work on any of my mp3 players. Why isn't it just an mp3 file like everything else??
