Publisher's Summary

Killing Floor is the first book in the internationally popular Jack Reacher series. It presents Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode: a righter of wrongs, the perfect action hero.

Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he's about to regret. Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in 30 years.

The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene. As nasty secrets leak out, and the body count mounts, one thing is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

    "Started off well but a struggle to finish"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, i would rather i had not bothered with this particular book. The actions of Jack Reacher as the story progressed seemed more and more unbeleveable. I completely disengaged with the main character.


    What could Lee Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make a more like able main character.


    Do you think Killing Floor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not for this story line as its all wrapped up by the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was excellent, can't fault it at all. I just can't see the appeal of Jack Reacher as a character, i was very bored towards the end of the book it just seemed like one cliche after another. Also Reacher to a large degree seems no better than the people he went up against.

    "An entertaining listen"
    Would you listen to Killing Floor again? Why?

    Would listen again because there were character clues early on that I didn't really pick up on on the first listen. Some seeming peripheral characters were more important than it initially seemed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was sufficiently complex and unexpected to hold my interest, without being too hard to follow. As the story unfolded I became increasingly reluctant to stop listening - always a good sign, though not necessarily compatible with family life:-)


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

    Jack is the main character and so has to be my favourite, but Dick's acting skills were well applied to the different characters so you always knew who was 'speaking'. Was particularly impressed with his interpretation of female voices which sounded feminine without being squeaky or forced.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Really felt the horror of the scene when the bodies were found mutilated - even though an advance description had been supplied. Perhaps it was the empathy with the feelings and reactions of the other characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Will be looking to listen to more of these!

    "Brilliant!"
    Would you listen to Killing Floor again? Why?

    Yes. As with any book I am sure I have missed bits.


    What other book might you compare Killing Floor to, and why?

    Sorry nothing to compare with, the book, the narration & the character are unique.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Th e Jack Reacher character. This is the second JR book I have listened to and I am sure will not be the last. having listened to The Affair & thoroughly enjoyed Jeff Harding narration I was a little nervous that Dick Hill would not be as good as the narrator is important with audible books however he was brilliant!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end however I understood without this end there would not be other JR books.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to start book 3. My 2 hour travel time to & from work is no longer a chore.

    "Excellent story and well read"

    This is my first Lee Child book and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Good mix of familiar story line and unexpected twist. Can see the potential for a stereotypical Jack R, but if the stories have similar quality, I won't mind. Very much enjoyed the reader.

    "Excellent"

    My very first Audible book was a Lee Child and I've listened to quite a lot before I came back to start the Jack Reacher books from the beginning. Don't know how I managed to wait so long, this was great and kept me listening for far too long sometimes. Wasn't sure I'd get on with a different narrator but Dick Hill was very good and great to listen to. Can't wait to start on the next one.
