This book was pretty good overall. Sort of felt like a mystery to me. I did enjoy learning about the remains of our fallen soldiers and the lengths that are taken to bring everyone home. This book kept up a faster pace than others that I heard.
Everyone hates on Johnathan McClain but I find his reading very good. It's not the best but it's not the worst either.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This is not my favorite series but it is very solid. I enjoy the storyline and there is enough suspense to keep me very interested. I plan on continuing the series to the end.
Early adopter, longtime listener, bookhungry.
Give this one a pass. The story is marred by too torture-y a villain, made almost laughable because the narrator Jonathan McClain made the serious error of using a voice exactly like the Austin Powers' villain Dr Evil. The girl is more than usually bland, her character mainly delineated by her extreme thinness, and the romance is anemic. Child must have been tired when he got to this one, and in many passages he simply repeats sentences—at one big reveal, Reacher actually has someone repeat a piece of news (which we've seen coming for about an hour) four times. Four times. Skip to the next, this one was a dud.
Slightly different tack on the Jack Reacher series.
Jack comes full circle and introduces his first commanding officer character.
Absolutely but I never have that much time. I prefer the unabridged series.
If you are a Jack Reacher fan (movie version not withstanding) you will not be dissapointed!
Nice twist near the end, but logical once you think back on all the clues. Loved the love interest aspect of this story, especially after the last Reacher novel in which he loses a woman who is clearly a soulmate. Some of the exposition about 80% through the story got a bit long in the tooth, but what comes after makes it worth slogging through.
Narrator is fantastic. Does lots of different accents and female voices in ways that work seamlessly. See if you don't agree that his effect on the character of Victor Hobie is genius.
I liked the story. I liked the different voices the performer gave the characters. Luckily, I have a speed rate increase on my Audible app; I increased the rate of his delivery by 1.5 - 2.0 times. I could hear his diction clearly.
Defiantly, great story!
Jack Reacher - of course
Jodie - Favorite female character in Reacher series thus far
Jonathan McClain's reading style is growing on me.
He's better at Tripwire than in Die Trying
Every time you think you have Lee Childs figured out in terms of story progression and predicting the end, he keeps the story line fresh and the reader guessing until the very end!
Another fabulous book by Lee Child. I have enjoyed all the Jack Reacher books. This one did not disappoint. Suspenseful, action and plot twist I didn't expect. Loved the narrator too!!
This book was agonizingly slow developing. Certainly gave plenty of time to acquire a hate for the bad guy(s).
Perhaps would have been nice to know what happened in the lives of the other three characters still alive at the end!
