    "I just listened to this... Might do it again soon!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Die Trying?

    not gonna spoil any. sorry.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan McClain – was your favorite?

    I think reacher of course is best done my McClain, although Dick hill reads him well too, but McClain sounds like how I picture Jack. But THIS particular book, he reads the maniacal, narcissistic leader of the bad guys very well. I could easily picture the fat, mean, little asshole.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did, riding my motorcycle from Pennsylvania to the Upper Michigan Peninsula in under a day. 1094 miles and i heard the whole book! I can even picture certain scenery on my trip, when I think about scenes of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Jack reacher series is my new favorite. I will get them all eventually. I am through the first 10 now. But this might be my favorite so far. Funky, far out and simply packed with memorable scenes. Jack is a stud!

    "good catchup information"

    I have recently discovered Lee child so I have been reading from new to old.
    It has been fun getting more background information on Jack Reacher. Die Trying was a good source for his personality and motivation. I will keep reading the original books in the series.

    "Another Coincidental Start"

    Great story, but the premise of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time (for the second time now) is too unbelievable. Hard to accept that. But once you do, it's a fun story.

    "Wasn't too bothered by the narrator"

    While the narrator would probably be better suited to straight narration, I still enjoyed his performance. True, some of the characters sounded comical, but I bought the book to enjoy it, and enjoy it I did.

    Story
    "A fun action thriller"

    I just listened to books one and two. They are both a lot of fun and I recommend them. The narrator in book one is better, but sounds quite a bit older than 36. The narrator for book two sounds more believable age-wise, but has a few voice characters that are awful. On the whole they both do a fine job though. The story line in Die Trying kept me interested throughout the story while I found a few dull spots in Killing Floor. I also struggle with the Reacher character a bit. I don't think his training as an MP would give him the skills that he demonstrates in the story. Still, these are fun and I'll probably download another.

    "Average and anticlimactic"

    This was an average story. It took a long time to set up and the ending was anticlimactic.
