    "Can't get over Tom Crude portraying Reacher"

    Since when does little Tommy Thumb think he can pull off 6 foot 5 inches 220 pounds? Kind of ruined the series for me.

    "A good book ruined by a poor performance."

    I'm not even a 1/4 through, and the book is being ruined by McClains brutally bad reading. Easily the worst of any audio book I have heard. Damn shame.

    "Love Lee Child, Love Jack Reacher"

    Lots of excitement and pretty good action. Lots of trickery and surprises.

    I did not understand the big deal made of the FBI lady's importance to the kidnappers. First we are led to believe it is because of who her father is, then she insists she is important in her own right. Reacher comes around to this point too, but it is never explained. So, was it really all about her father or not?

    Loved the story nevertheless.

    "Great book, well writen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Die Trying to be better than the print version?

    Yes the reader gives an excellent voice to characters!
    .


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Reacher the narrators dead pan style for this character brought him to life in a way that few can really grasp.


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

    Jack Reacher


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

    Yes, but 14 hours is a bit much for that


    Any additional comments?

    Other than some flawed research, Air Force does not nor has it ever had Chinook helicopters, this is a great book!

    "interesting beginning"

    This book is the second in the series that I have listened too and it delivered an interesting outlook on militants view on the federal government.

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

    Jonathan McClain is no Dick Hill !! Jack Reacher's just not the same. Just a boring read.

    None


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    GREAT as usual


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

    Poor!


    Any additional comments?

    No, We'll buy all the Jack Reacher series except any read by this guy!

    Story
    "Too many "He said" and "She said""

    A pet peeve of mine and not the fault of the performer. But when a conversation is being held by two people it is pretty obvious who is saying what so the constant use of "He said" and "She said" got annoying. Past that a good story with some suspense added. Would make a good movie I think. Definitely worth the money.

    "Another rescued damsel in distress??"
    Any additional comments?

    This is my 2nd Jack Reacher book and the storylines were pretty good. The literary style is a little different but I was ok with it. I'm uncertain I will purchase another, as in both books he rescued a damsel in distress, had a "relationship" for the duration of the book and then parted ways. Not very original. I do not know if other books in the series follow this same pattern.

    "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.
