Echo Burning | [Lee Child]

Echo Burning

Reacher is hitching through the heat of West Texas and getting desperate for a ride. The last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up.

She's called Carmen. She's a good-looking young woman, she has a beautiful little girl...and she has married into the wrong family. They're called the Greers. They're a bitter and miserly clan, and they've made her life a living hell. Worse, her monster of a husband is soon due out of prison. So she needs protection, and she needs it now.

Lawyers can't help. Cops can't be trusted. So Reacher goes home with her to the lonely ranch where nothing is as it seems, and where evil swirls around them like dust in a storm. Within days, Carmen's husband is dead - and simmering secrets send Echo, Texas, up in flames.

    "One of best I have read from the Reacher series"
    What did you love best about Echo Burning?

    Good story with out asking you to suspend disbelief. Some of the Reacher book have flaw in logic but the only problem this book has is explain why the stage hands just disappear from the book.


    What other book might you compare Echo Burning to and why?

    One Shot


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Rescues scene don't want to give away plot


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The title of book is good enough

    "Okay, but not my favorite Jack Reacher book"

    It was a good read but not as great as some of the other Jack Reacher Books.

    "I told myself to not get let the novel get to me.."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm just glad I'm retired and didn't need to worry about lost sleep. I read it, I read it all without stopping. Delicious! Get it, get it now!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Reacher is my favorite character. He is to me, a modern Micky Spillane character: "Mike Hammer." A series I loved. A character that earned 15 all-time best selling fiction titles in the U.S for the author.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    His versatility to bring to life everyone who has a role in Child's novel


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

    Yes, and I did!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm working on getting them all.

    "Echoed"
    Would you listen to Echo Burning again? Why?

    I would not listen to this again. Male narrator talking like woman was awful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Reacher is a super-hero somehow always managing to turn even the worst situations around


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    No idea - might have worked better had there been a women to read female parts

    "Meh ..."

    There was too much in the book that just made me think, "really, this seems real under the circumstance how? this is excellent suspense how? Are you kidding me?" ... It was okay, but if it had been my first Jack Reacher novel, I wouldn't have bought another. I'm going to wait awhile to listen to the last Reacher book I've purchased and not listened to just so I don't project my feelings toward this book onto that one. Really bummed ...

    I'm a retired teacher with "spastic" eyes. Audio books seem made for me! For the first time in my 65 years, reading is fun!!

    "Echo Burning"

    This was quite a tale! Child's characters are so thoroughly developed that they're believable. Mitch is, however, a tince...superhuman?

    Great listen!

    "Another Great Reacher Novel"

    I'm only five books into the Jack Reacher series, but Echo Burning is one of the best so far. The characters were well developed and Child did a wonderful job describing the town in which nearly the whole book took place. And, as always, Dick Hill did a fantastic job narrating the book, especially the little girl, Ellie; he brought her to life in a way that's remarkable. If you like Reacher, check it out.

    "I love Jack Reacher! Dick Hill is just great."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Echo Burning to be better than the print version?

    I don't have much time to read so I listen as I drive. Keeps me calmer as I wait for the light to change or traffic to move.


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

    The story was compelling but I could never listen for that long.

    "A great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Echo Burning the most enjoyable?

    It has many twist and Reacher knows who the bad guy is, although you have some thoughts about who it is, it is almost always someone else. I liked the surprise ending.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I didn't want to put it down.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    I enjoy the way he reads. He has a master story teller voice.


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

    Yes just like all the other Reacher books.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book.
