    "Good book BUT"

    I really enjoyed the story, but not the narrator, which is the most important part to me...

    "Problem with audio"

    Half of chapter 17, the climax, is missing. i tried downloading it on several devices to be sure.I do not recommend this version. Story was average, not very thrilling. Figured out the twist early on.

    "Good book but missing part of critical chapter ."

    I liked everything about it until Chapter 17 cut off mid sentence leaving out critical information to the conclusion of the book. I went back twice to see if it was just a player error but no luck. Disappointing.

    Story
    "I wish I could get into this series"

    I have tried very hard to enjoy this series. This is my 4th or 5th Reacher novel. I just don't understand the love for Lee Child. I don't see why people fall over for these books.

    What I appreciate about Reacher is he is not a 'super hero'. Yes he can do more than any mortal man and has a flawless personal ethic. But unlike many series', he is still based in some sort of reality.

    I also appreciate that his novels are not 'end of the world' affairs. So many military thrillers are poised on world changing disaster if the protagonist doesn't pull through. The Reacher stories are a little more human. Smaller stories. This is good because its more believable.

    What I don't like is Reacher has really no flaws. The guy can do no wrong. It gets boring. He also always finds some sophisticated lady to fall in love with him for the duration of the story. The villains are a little ridiculous as well.

    Here in TripWire, what cracks me up were the bad guys. The main dude is a twisted little psycho. I guess he was ok. But not plausible or well developed. He has some minions. I don't understand why they stick around. I couldn't figure what was in it for them. Are they killing left and right and each other for $70k and a pension? There is real estate involved. Vietnam legacies, old ties to Reachers past, but ties are goofy.

    I don't agree that this is a good suspense novel because I could not get into the plot or the characters. Because I could not get into those characters, I could not take the ridiculous plot seriously. HOWEVER, if you like other Reacher stories, this is not any different, so you'll probably enjoy this one.

    "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.

    What would have made Tripwire better?

    tighter editing, better narration


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

    cut out about half of the book, so much of it is irrelevant filler


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    terrible accents, flat, boring voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no

    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
    "Reacher settling in: drift, solve crime, repeat"

    Tripwire is Lee Child's 3rd Jack Reacher adventure. Jack Reacher is the prototypical man without a home. connections, or long term goals. He is also gifted with innate deductive reasoning and excellent investigator skills from the military. Finally, he possesses his own sense of right and wrong as well as justice. This time out, Reacher is sought out by a private detective who shortly thereafter ends up dead. In delving into the cause for the interest in him, he stumbles onto a criminal conspiracy, reunites with an unrequited flame, solves a Vietnam era mystery for the military and soothes the despair of a dying elderly couple. Pretty much all in a day's work for Jack.

    The classic Reacher analytical deductions are in full display with plenty of opportunities. At the same time, Child weaves a more complex web of connections with multiple intersecting plotlines that give the tale a more relaxed pace that takes its time to unfold. The one constant in force is the slight mental instability in the main villain. This tale includes quite a bit of introspection on Jack's part that is likely to direct Reacher to a path that ensures the franchise remains on theme for the foreseeable future.

    The narration is superb with an excellent range of voices, solid pacing and delivery.

    "Enjoyable lisning"
    What did you love best about Tripwire?

    It's constant movement forward. and not too many lead characters to keep up with .. well defined way of rendering each character.. good voice renderings..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Reacher of course. I purchased it for that reason..


    What does Jonathan McClain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    well thats hard to say. I enjoy reading too. I like the feel of the book in my hand.. they BOTH have their own perks.. listening and reading both. Sorry can't really comment on that.


    Any additional comments?

    I prefer Reacher when he is not romantic.. lol.I like him more as a soldier than a lover.. but it does add some variety to the theme..
