    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
    "Give it a pass"

    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.

    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!

    "Just couldn't do it..."
    What disappointed you about Tripwire?

    Two hours in I decided that it's Dick Hill or no one. Nothing personal against this narrator. Another thing was Reacher the ladies man and being buff etc. Just too unlike the character I think. Perhaps it would have gotten better, I just wasn't willing to give up the time to find out.

    "Jonathan McClain IS Jack Reacher"
    If you could sum up Tripwire in three words, what would they be?

    Best narrator Ever!


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

    His performances are masterful. I love listening to him become the character.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know why Jonathan McClain was replaced by Dick Hill. Jonathan McClain really was Jack Reacher. He has a lot to be proud of.

    "Reach - ing for a Plot!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Scattered about, and tied up at the end with strenuous effort. Too dated to be timeless and too new to be a classic. The sexual tension between Reacher and Jodie doesn't come through.

    "Almost didn't finish it."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Change the voice of the main bad guy. It sounded too much lick a character from Austin Powers.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lee Child before, how does this one compare?

    I just didn't enjoy it as much as other Reacher stories.


    What didn’t you like about Jonathan McClain’s performance?

    Most characters were great.


    Do you think Tripwire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    I am an electrical engineer and have served a stint in the Navy. I own a company that installs custom home theater systems and other home entertainment products. My favorite books tend to be action fiction or fantasy. I like some romance but not too mushy

    "Finally a Reacher book NOT read by Dick Hill"
    Where does Tripwire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a fun read and as good as most of the other Jack Reacher books that I have read.


    What other book might you compare Tripwire to and why?

    This is a pretty typical Jack Reacher book, however, I enjoyed the romance that was sprinkled into this one.


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

    This is the first Jonathan McClain performance that I have listened to and frankly, I wish they all were by Jonathan McClain. Dick Hill sounds like an old man and his female voices end up sounding like drag queens. I will search through all the Reacher series and read the ones by Jonathan McClain first. I truly don't understand why Dick Hill has such a loyal following.


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

    Yes, I scheduled a weekend of pressure washing the driveways and walkways just so that I could finish this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Lee Child, if you are listening, let's have more Jonathan McClain

    "A formula that keeps on working"

    Yes this is a Jack Reacher novel. He still owns nothing, replaces his dirty clothes with new ones, has a girl in the picture and a few references to past books. Beyond that is a whole new adventure. Well paced. Exciting. Just plug in new data into the formula and you have another good Jack Reacher novel. If you like these books, you won't be disappointed. If you are trying it out for the first time, you won't be disappointed. I'll keep listening as long as Lee Child keeps writing! Would like the original narrator to come back though.

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    "I like Jack's wandering life."
    What did you love best about Tripwire?

    I enjoyed meeting more of the characters Jack knew from his Army days. His life fascinates me. When I listen to these books I feel like I can become a wanderer too. But I am nowhere near as fascinating as Reacher, so I have to live vicariously through his tales. But these audio books make that so easy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack. It's all about Jack!


    Any additional comments?

    It appears there may be a return of a lover in book 4. I was starting to wonder if he would have a new lover in every book.
