Not a Drill: A Jack Reacher Short Story | [Lee Child]

Not a Drill: A Jack Reacher Short Story

The brand new Jack Reacher short story, published as a digital exclusive. The tiny town of Naismith has nothing going for it - except the start of a wilderness trail through Maine's ancient forests. But one day the trail is suddenly closed by county police. No reason is given. Rumours start - is there something in the woods that no one must see? That no one must even know about? Then Jack Reacher drifts into town. What does he make of the Do Not Enter tape strung between the trees?

    Story
    "NOT A THRILL"
    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Kerry Shale?

    Yes. A great author hero and performer.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    It was boring and lacked action and drama.The first Lee Child book that has disappointed me.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The Performer tried to make something of a pot-boiler.


    What character would you cut from Not a Drill?

    If I was Lee Child I would not have published this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am sorry to be negative as I am a great admirer of Lee Child.

    "Lee: Please stop writing short stories!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who has never read a Reacher book


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

    Not to write it at al


    What didn’t you like about Kerry Shale’s performance?

    Too husky, and turned Reacher into a caricature


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    yes, yes and yes


    Any additional comments?

    Lee, please do NOT write any more Reacher short stories. They only lead to alienating your long term fans.

    Story
    "Complacent author can't be bothered anymore"
    Would you try another book written by Lee Child or narrated by Kerry Shale?

    Yes but only if it's a full length proper book


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Resentment, bitterness and a feeling that I've been exploited.


    Any additional comments?

    This "novella" cost me over £8 and lasts just over an hour. The plot is idiotic and you are left with the feeling that the author can't be bothered to write any more now he's done a film deal with Hollywood. This falls well short of his normal standard and is significantly overpriced.

    "Huge disappointment"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone with an extremely short attention span - it only lasts 73 minutes !!!!!


    What will your next listen be?

    Not another one of these.


    What didn’t you like about Kerry Shale’s performance?

    Too short!


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Should not be listed along with full-length books. I feel cheated and hugely disappointed in Audible/Amazon. Trust is so easily broken!
