    "Warning"

    If you're a Jack Reacher fan, you might already have this in your Library. After I downloaded it and listened to it, I found I had a Dick Hill version of Tripwire I downloaded in 2009. It doesn't seem to be available in the Audible store, but I'll take Dick Hill over this narrator any day. McClain isn't a bad narrator, and if I didn't already feel that Dick Hill IS Jack Reacher, I would have probably liked him OK.

    If you think Tom Cruise is going to make a believable Jack Reacher in the movie, you might like this narrator, and if you don't already have this book in your library, and you're a Jack Reacher fan as I am, you might not have any choice but to go with this book. The Dick Hill version doesn't seem to be available.

    It was difficult to rate this book. McClain is an OK narrator. It's just that he's not Dick Hill, and after downloading this version, I discovered I already had the Dick Hill version. Luckily, after 3 years and 700 or so books, the story was fresh. I had forgotten most of it. I might go back and listen to the Dick Hill version to compare the two. Since I already had that one, it was a waste of a credit.

    "WHO DONE IT NOVEL?"

    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.

    "Another good one"

    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.

    Story
    "One of the best in Jack Reacher series."
    What did you love best about Tripwire?

    Slightly different tack on the Jack Reacher series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jack comes full circle and introduces his first commanding officer character.


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

    Absolutely but I never have that much time. I prefer the unabridged series.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Jack Reacher fan (movie version not withstanding) you will not be dissapointed!

    Story
    "Don't Get Tripped Up On This One"


    Having read & enjoyed the first 2 Reacher books, I was ready to continue to enjoy the series in order. Seems like I hit a dead end with Book 3.

    This one was a tough one to get through...the 2 parallel story-lines (one boring and under-motivated, one corny when it's not cruel) take forever to merge...and when they do, the 'twist' involving the villain (one that any reader can see coming a mile away) just isn't enough to reward the slog to get to that point.

    Along the way, the reader is treated to endless descriptive scenes that come off not as useful exposition, but page-filling. We all know what an airport or a row of apartment mailboxes looks like, or that it's hot in Texas, thanks. The cumulative effect is exhausting.

    Contrast that to Baldacci's "John Puller" books that involve a similar character...but with a tighter, much leaner approach.

    A production annoyance (not Child's fault): there's not enough of a narrative pause when changing scenarios from one story-line to another, so the reader is forced to take a second to realize who we're talking about...never a good thing when you're trying to get involved with a story.

    One bright spot is Jonathan McClain's great read...much more enjoyable IMO than Dick Hill, who I'm not a fan of.

    This one is probably an anomaly in the series, but it's going to be a while before I'll feel like checking in on Jack Reacher again.

    This series is addictive. The stories build well and then action pack against impossible odds to a triumphant end.

    My pic says it all. That's my dog and he is really barking for me to throw another snowball. Scary looks but really just a playful guy by nature. Been reading sf/fantasy like a power nerd my whole life which is almost 50 years now. I like all sorts of stuff just make the story believable...

    "Tedious"

    This whole story had major plot holes from big to small. However, the biggest was why didn't anybody call the cops. Dial 911 and every thing would have been handled quick. Lives would have been saved, people wouldn't have been tortured, etc....'

    "Excellent story read excellently"

    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.

    "Good "early" Reacher book."

    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.
