I always enjoy the audio version because it keeps me entertained on my long road trips for work.
Yes, the plot was good, minus the few holes.
Overall I love the Jack Reacher novels. But for some reason, they changed the narrator. I am trying very hard to adjust from the Dick Hill era who, in my opinion, had the best Reacher voice. This narrator, when performing the lead villain, sounds just like Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movies. Every time he spoke, I kept picturing a bald and pale Mike Myers sticking his pinky up to his mouth, with Mini-me by his side. Additionally, this version of Reacher just doesn't have the same gruff tough-guy voice Dick Hill presented. Just not sure why they tried to fix something that wasn't broken. As a result, I just don't feel the same connection to Reacher as I did with the previous edition.
Nothing out the ordinary.
I wish Audible would at least give us the choice between the old Dick Hill versions and the new narrator.
Best Jack Reacher
The plot was good and there was a good plot twist. I can't describe what parts I didn't like without possibly giving a spoiler alert.
I like his voice changes for the characters and I'm able to follow them when he switches between the characters.
Yes, but ended up listening to it over a week while commuting to work.
As my heading says, good book.
Happily married mother of three. Avid reader. Love Audible!
Great read for anyone who enjoys espionage or spy-craft novels. Read the series in order for maximum benefit, but each can be read as a stand-alone.
The story has too much detail on unimportant issues.
I usually like his novels and Yes, I will.
The narrator needs to find another career.
A very complicated set of characters and events that eventually all come together. The real mystery is hinted at several times, so you might figure that point out before the "reveal", but then Reacher still has to save the day. And he does.
What is endearing about Jack is that he isn't out to be a vigilante, he isn't on any sort of vendetta, he has no agenda. Situations just find him, and he is able to use his talents, skills, and training to be at the right place at the right time.
There is a really bad guy in this book so some awful violence, but it isn't all graphically described. But one of the most interesting things here is how Reacher is now presented with the choice of what to do with his life. There's some introspection on modern life styles and all they entail, and what our choices really are.
Just keep going, all the books seem to be great!
The book, for me, started slow. I am currently on the Jack Reacher Run, starting with book 1 and going through to the end; buying extra credits so I could keep the 'ride' going. But this book started slow. With so much unnecessary conversation, I wanted to fall asleep. But then it picks up and delivers!
Shall I give it away? Ok I will. Loved when Jack punches out the FBI woman at the end.
The last scene was my favorite.
This is Ezekiel my Service Dog. We Listen to books and go on walks, work in the Garden and Lawn together. We Like Thrillers / Mystery
It starts in the middle of the story, then really starts with the beginning then gets put together for the ride of your life.
