Never Go Back: Jack Reacher 18

After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there? What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next.

Publisher's Summary

After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?

What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?

What the Critics Say

"It's said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world… Lee Child's genius has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore" (Daily Express)

    "AN OK REACHER STORY"
    What made the experience of listening to Never Go Back the most enjoyable?

    The plot was an improvement of some of the later Lee Child books, but not particularly memorable. It's always entertaining to have Jack steamroller a few baddies with humour and ingenuity.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No idea - I can't remember the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I sometimes go back and re-read some of the Reacher books as they are quite enjoyable. But I find I am now viewing them in the same way as "Chick-Lit" - a light read when you don't want to work too hard.

    "Another steady Jack Reacher book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Go Back to be better than the print version?

    On a par with print version but easier to digest.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Go Back?

    An interesting thought provoking plot with a few twists.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Jeff Harding a great narrator, good tones and easy on the ear. Somebody able to make a good book great.


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

    Definitely a book I wanted to listen to non stop


    Any additional comments?

    If you've not read a Jack Reacher book before then this is as good a place to start as any. Listen to one you'll want to listen to more.

    I find all Lee Childs books very readable, and this is up to the same high standard.

    Reacher on the run is always great fun.

    Reacher of course is my favourite, no contest!

    I did find it was a little frustrating at the start, but once it got going it was brilliant.

    "Excellent again..."
    Would you listen to Never Go Back again? Why?

    Absolutely...I listen to all my good books again


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jack Reacher being Jack Reacher. Logic and reasoning all wrapped up in a no-nonsence 250lbs


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    *spoiler* On the aircraft with 2 of the 4 goons


    Any additional comments?

    A great story, but ultimately a little sad. If the author had only missed off the very last word...

    Story
    "Worth a listen."
    Where does Never Go Back rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I typically listen to factual/biography type audio books and this was my first experience of a 'story' telling fiction book. I have read several Jack Reacher paperbacks and this has perhaps tainted my experience of this book as I had already formulated in my mind a mental impression of Jacks voice and demeanour.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself is engaging and I did find myself wanting to know what happens next.


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

    I found the narrators voice and accent totally irritating, and it detracted from the story initially, although I did get used to it after a while. As I listen to plays on the radio I am used to hearing different voices played by different actors, so hearing this narrator imitate a female voice made me cringe. It was also annoying that every female character in the book had the same irritating voice and accent!! That said, I suppose it is to be expected and after a while I got used to it.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book did not invoke an emotional reaction, but having already bought into Jack Reacher as a central character I was keen to follow the outcome of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This may be symptomatic of audio books, time will tell, but listening to this book on a commuter train I fell asleep to the droning voice and had to rewind on the return journey to catch up on the tale! If you like Lee Childs' Jack Reacher, you will like this story too.

    "Not as good as they used to be."
    If you could sum up Never Go Back in three words, what would they be?

    Jaded but ok.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I wasn't at all amazed in anyway.


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    He is a fantastic reader and I always enjoy the accents and voices.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    NA


    Any additional comments?

    This book, although well written and read just didn't really do anything for me either way. Lee Child in my opinion at least seems to be dragging the series out far too much now. Perhaps there should be a book where we do wonder if Reacher will just cut and run for it as a last option. They are just too predictable now for my taste and I don't expect to be buying the next one.

    "Not One of His Best!"

    Having read or listened to (and enjoyed) all the previous Reacher books I couldn't help feeling a little let down by this one.
    It moved along at a brisk enough pace and there was enough happening to keep me interested but the ending seemed rushed and anti-climactic.
    Jeff Harding's narration was, as usual, excellent.
    It's not a bad book but not one I would really recommend - sure read or listen to it when you get round to it but I wouldn't rush!

    "Much better!"

    I really enjoyed this Jack Reacher, much more than the last few (which have still been great!). This felt like more of a return to the old Jack - the storyline was crisper, the writing sharper (with some great humour and one-liners). It wasn't quite as predictable as recently, although some elements you could work out. Highly recommended to all fellow fans of Mr Child and the wonderful Reacher world.

    Jeff Harding does a great job narrating this novel. He really understands Jack Reacher. This book is easy to listen to, the plot easy to follow.
