    "Good Story But Surprise Narrator"

    The narrator, to be fair, did a good job. To me, however, Jack Reacher IS narrator Dick Hill. Therefore I was a little disappointed. It is an exciting story and I recommend it.

    "Could have been much better"
    What would have made Running Blind better?

    Not as enjoyable as the other Jack Reacher Series books that I've heard. Main story idea was fine. The FBI characters were written and portraied as obnoxious and stupid. That, and the overall narration, were strong distraction as I lisened.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll probably continue with the Jack Reacher Series until I tire.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan McClain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is a McClain narration. I did not care for his performance.


    What character would you cut from Running Blind?

    Make the law enforcement characters seem more professional.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Not My Favorite Reacher..."

    It seems like the story was weak and fluffed up . The plot wasn't that great and the punchline was weaker. Seems to be something that was written without much thought. Dissappointed....hope the next is better.

    "narrative distracting"
    If you could sum up Running Blind in three words, what would they be?

    good,smart, story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Running Blind?

    When they discovered what the appliance boxes actually contained.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jonathan McClain?

    maybe


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

    Jack Reacher races to save the painted ladies...


    Any additional comments?

    I love Jack Reacher books, and this one delivers.

    "Dissapointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only if you are die hard to read the series then you need to read all.


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

    The story line was good but falls completely apart a the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like this book had a good story line and some surprises that I didn't see coming. I was very disappointed by the ending. I don't know who this Reacher guy is at the end of the book. For a tough know it all he just rolls over.

    Good listen, like the series, like this book. Sorry to see that it probably isn't going to work out with Jack and his girl, but waiting for the next book or two to see what happens. I just heard about this author and the series this year because of the movie. Glad to find it, recomend it for those of you who want action, but don't necessarily need it to be in the form of a terrorist. Good twisted detective series.

    I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha

    "Outstandingly Good!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Running Blind to be better than the print version?

    Although I have no intention of reading the print version, I would say yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was the most mesmerizing mystery book I think I have ever heard. At least once I overlooked the major error it contained.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    They were all competing for the honor of my favorite & added to the mysterious plot I didn't even come close to figuring out even right up to the end. The book held my attention through out & I was sitting on the edge of my bed. Actually, I fell off a few times. But I got right back up & on.


    Any additional comments?

    Way to go Childs & McClain. And I promise not to tell anyone the only mistake which was a real blooper was that no one can be hypnotized to do anything they do not want to do. Like taking all their clothes off or blank, blank, blank that would definately & purposely end thier life. So as a certified Hynotherapist, I will over look this mistake just becasue the story line was so great & of course it was fiction. But it sure didn't help hynosis as a therapy tool. Shame on you Child.

    "Not Lee Child's best"
    What would have made Running Blind better?

    Take out the annoying nasal narration for some of the characters.


    Has Running Blind turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I think just a one off for Child. Maybe he had a balloon mortgage payment coming up and dashed this one out.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan McClain – was your favorite?

    Reacher - but he was overly sarcastic at times.


    Any additional comments?

    **SPOILER ALERT!!!** **SPOILER ALERT!!!****SPOILER ALERT!!!** Too easy to solve. Got it in the first 3rd. I think I may have liked better if I had read it instead of listening. The narrator's soft voice and genderless personal pronouns gave away that the killer was a woman. The robotic responses of the victims responses indicated that they were hypnotized.

    I like mysteries, not gory or too much romance. I can stand a little. I like law enforcement, lawyers and espionage, not to complicated.

    "Where is Dick Hill?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This narrator is okay, but he IS NOT Jack Reacher. Please bring Dick Hill back.


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

    Okay.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    As I said, the narrator is okay, but not as Jack Reacher. There's only one voice for Jack Reacher and that voice is Dick Hill.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, especially with Tom Cruise in the role of Jack Reacher. Are you kidding me? He no longer has respect as a actor, and he is about as opposite to Jack Reacher as he can be.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring back Dick Hill.

    "Merits and Demerits"

    The story line was quite good overall altough a little bit transparent. It contained interesting twists and turns but, unlike the other Reacher books I have listened to so far, I found that I could see more of them coming in advance than I am accustomed to.

    The narrator was good.

    I was severely put-off by the FBI characters. All fiction requires some greater or lesser degree of suspension of disbelief and I'm usually pretty tolerant where that's concerned. But the FBI charaters were beyond my considerable ability to suspend. I don't think it even slightly plausible that they are as stupid, rigid or devoid of ethics as portrayed. That hand was seriously over-played.
