The Visitor: Jack Reacher 4 | [Lee Child]

The Visitor: Jack Reacher 4

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common. Both were army high-flyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service. Now they're both dead. Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint. Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante. A man just like Jack Reacher.

    "Good Story"

    The narrator wasn't as easy to listen to as other narrators. Good story as always.

    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Hayward Morse?

    Love the Reacher series but this narrator is terrible.................. His voice is exceptionally annoying and his character voices just, well, grate.


    Has The Visitor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Would NEVER choose any book narrated by Hayward Morse.............EVER !!!!!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hayward Morse’s performances?

    No !!!!!!


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

    Annoyance..........................his voice and delivery was sub-standard.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator ruined this audiobook

    "Average story severely compromised by narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really, no. The story itself was pretty average, but the narration made it all but unbearable.


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

    I had it figured by the end of the third chapter, so was hardly surprised by the ending. Predictable and slow.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's normal reading voice is fine, but his characters are horrible. Reacher sounds like something from Loony Tunes, every female sounds like a granny, and there's a fair bit of Pluto and Daffy Duck mixed in too. Reacher sounds like he is mentally impaired (no offence meant to those unfortunate souls), and the two supposedly hot women in the plot both sound like they are in their late eighties. Horrible.


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

    Surprisingly, yes. I think it could make a fairly interesting film - if the possible baddies aren't revealed so obviously early in the storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    This has been a low-point for me, in my Jack Reacher life. Echo Burning used to sit at the lowest rung of the ladder, but now that spot belongs to The Visitor. If I hadn't waited so long to start listening to this book, I would've returned it. The story was below par for Child, and the narration was terrible. No more Wayward Morse-read books for me - Jeff Harding does it so much better.

    "Great story terrible narrator"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    this was yet another awesome Jack Reacher story, but the narrator was terrible. he hissed is sssss and the tones used for female characters made me feel sick. On top of that the recording quality was second rate, and made it sound like it was recorded in someones bathroom. I persisted in the hope that I will enjoy the next installment in Jack Reachers life without this narrator.

    Having just listened to Tripwire... the change in Reacher's voice is one thing but Jodie's is super hard to get one's head around! haha. And eye-talian ... again and again and again ... seriously?

    "Good story, terrible narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, it's too hard to listen to with Hayward Morse narrating. He makes Jack Reacher sound like a dufus, and all the women sound whiney. I love Jack Reacher books, this is so far the only one I haven't enjoyed, and that is because of the narration. Not the best of the Reacher series either, a little bit predictable unfortunately. Still love every other Reacher book though.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He didn't give a great portrayal of Jack Reacher with the voice he chose to use for him, made him seem slow and a bit dull. Jeff Harding and Dick Hill do an awesome job of narrating Reacher, (and all of the other characters in the books) just not Hayward Morse. If this was the first Reacher book I listened to, I would have given up.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Try any of the other Reacher books narrated by Jeff Harding or Dick Hill.

    "Fantastic series."
    Would you listen to The Visitor again? Why?

    The funniest book yet. For a hardcore pulp fiction like book its very funny, in a good way. Clever humor as a natural part of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As usual the story as a whole and the way all the pieces delightful fit together.

    Help! The series is sooo addictive I cant stop listening!


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

    NO


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

    YES! Tired now.

    "Comic voices spoil a good yarn..."

    The narration is appalling. Corny FBI tough men, and women who sound like characters from the Simpsons. The story is possibly one of the best Reacher books so far, and needs re-telling.

    "Good Book Shame about the Voice Actor!"
    Would you listen to The Visitor again? Why?

    No I would not, the voice acting is in consistent and I found it a hard listen


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hayward Morse’s performances?

    No, if this is to go by i would avoid them and try the Abridged version as it has a different vocal talent


    Any additional comments?

    I would only listen to this book again if the vocal talent was recast, i dont think he does the book Justice with his bad accents and awful female voices

    What would have made The Visitor better?

    A different narrator


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Reacher, Jack Reacher is the reason I buy these books.


    What didn’t you like about Hayward Morse’s performance?

    Poor and inconsistent voice acting. I.e. one characters voice bled into another. No pauses for new paragraphs, I could keep going but I don't have time


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Visitor?

    none

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Most definitely the narrator, it was not enjoyable at all to listen to...I only persevered because I am going through the Jack Reacher series


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Visitor?

    When Hayward Morse finished reading.


    What didn’t you like about Hayward Morse’s performance?

    Everything! but most especially his women's voices...they sounded like no woman I have ever heard


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story and quietly pleased that Reacher did not behave out of character by giving up his roamings

    "Terrible Narration"
    What disappointed you about The Visitor?

    I've got most of Lee Child's audiobooks & have enjoyed them, but if this had been the first book I'd listen to I doubt I would've got to the others.
    The whole thing is ruined by the narrator, he make Jack Reacher sound like an idiot, I half expected to hear D'oh (from the Simpsons each time he spoke). I won't even try to guess what women he's heard speak, because his interpretation is terrible.
    I has to give up after 30mins because it was driving me mad, I'd rather listen to finger nails down a blackboard.


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

    Changer the narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His tone, his interpretation of Jack Reachers speech & his female characters speech


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Visitor?

    Don't know I only made it through 30mins


    Any additional comments?

    Re-record this book with Jeff Harding as the narrator

    I like all the Jack Reacher books - and they have got better as they have gone on.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Hayward Morse’s performances?

    Not really. On the basis of the voice characterisations in this book I'd have to say no. Shame


    Was The Visitor worth the listening time?

    Just

    What did you like most about The Visitor?

    The story moved along quite well and had all of the action I expect from a Jack Reacher Novel.


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

    Unfortunately I guessed the ending so not as much of a surprise as previous novels.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the scene where Reacher gets help from his army buddies.


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

    This is not that type of book
