Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place...without family...without possessions...without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble - big, violent, complicated trouble - finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once...not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it...justice.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    Story
    "Deliver Me from Dick Hill"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who like Dick Hill's voice


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Lee Child. I love Jack Reacher.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    No. I keep trying, and he just makes me crazy--not as crazy as diminutive Tom Cruise playing Reacher, but crazy.


    What character would you cut from Persuader?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    For some reason, the monotonous Hill permeates the genres I enjoy. Why? He constantly mixes his voices up, and he CANNOT do women. They all sound like a man trying to do a granny voice. I will have to read Child on a Kindle.

    "Another good book!"

    This is the third book I've listened to by this author and narrator and I love each and every one! I know Reacher's character may be over the top, but I still get excited and sometimes find myself holding my breath to hear what will happen next. I listen to these books in my car and there have been times that I've just sat in the car (after I've arrived at my destination), because I can't find a good stopping point! I just have to hear what comes next!

    "A spell binding story."
    What made the experience of listening to Persuader the most enjoyable?

    The book's plot started immediately and kept going at a fast pace.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Persuader?

    There were many memborable moments. But the drowning scene was so well written I feel like I know exactly what the character went through.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Reacher finally over came the last few of the bad guys.

    Story
    "No surprise here, from child... Awesome!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, I love lee child, I have only heard a few of his jack reacher novels, but they're great! I'm never dissapointed with lee child


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Persuader?

    The part where jack saves the boy and his mother from Paul and his devious pleasures, how he wasn't afraid to give his life to save others, like a good soldier offers his life to save innocent people.


    What aspect of Dick Hill’s performance would you have changed?

    I'm a truck driver, the cab of my truck can get noisy, I would much appreciate if he wouldn't drop his voice so much, he gets very hard to hear sometimes, unlike Scott brick or jay Snyder who are very nice to listen to when I'm driving


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

    Yep! But I break it up over several days, because like I said, I'm a driver and I like to listen to a good exciting book to keep me awake when I get sleepy


    Any additional comments?

    Great work lee child! Love all your books!

    "Not Persuaded"

    Maybe, I just don't get it but this is the second Reacher book that I thought was just mediocre. The story was slow and boring and the bad guys were not believable. I tried but I could not get into the story. I would say pass on this one.

    Story
    "Great Narrator...."
    What disappointed you about Persuader?

    Where do I begin? Lee Child seems to have some sort of ADD when it comes to his character Jack Reacher. In one book he is, "all that movie stuff you see when revenge is sweet- my brother would laugh at that" and then another he is, "I'm Jack Reacher, I NEED YOU TO KNOW WHO I AM". Not to mention Reacher goes from being hyper vigilant in 95 percent of all situations and always has some sort of complete lack of sense at the times it matters most. Lazy writing. Manufactured danger. Really dumb 'bad guys'.
    One last thing. Stop painting people who believe in the right to bear arms and own whatever weapons they deem enough to protect themselves from danger and mostly tyranny as thugs and villians, whilst claiming that in the hands of some douche bag former MP it's completely OK.


    Has Persuader turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Mitch Rapp almost never disappoints.


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

    Jack Reacher of course. Dick Hill is great.


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

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Dick Hill in a Punisher comic book type setting would be great. Even if he were to narrate over an actual movie. (If I'm late to this party please understand this is the only character I've ever heard him voice)

    Story
    "Story somewhat shallow and predictable"
    What did you like best about Persuader? What did you like least?

    The best part was the twist at the beginning
    The least was the lengthy descriptions of guns


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lee Child? Why or why not?

    Not now


    Any additional comments?

    This story did not have the personal relationships of previous books.

    Story
    "Classic Reacher"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Persuader to be better than the print version?

    I wouldn't put it better than the print version, only that the audio version lets me enjoy the book/story at times when I would not be able to read, such as while driving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The back and forth between present and past. I don't remember Child doing this before


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

    Characterization


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

    Made me think, 'YEAH!"


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable. I'd recommend it to any Reacher fan

    "Typical fast pace Reacher thriller"

    Reacher seems to be getting a little old and broken for all the action. No regrets, the listen was great but I may be done with the Reacher series.
