    Story
    "I want to like it more but...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I guess the book is good for the genre. I wanted to like it more but really the story was bordering on predictable. I started at the beginning of the series with Killing Floor and liked but didn't love the book. This was sort of the same but not as fresh. If you are a fan this is on par with the first two in the seires I suppose. For me I was hoping to be hooked but can't really say I am.


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

    I think if you wanted to explore Jack Reacher this would be as good a place to start as Killing Floor.


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

    I will say the narration was good. I'm new to audible and have listened to maybe 5 or 6 books with varying degrees of success with the narration. In this instance the narrator did a really good job.


    Was Tripwire worth the listening time?

    For simple brain candy I'd give a guarded yes on "worth listening to".

    "Not bad"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tripwire to be better than the print version?

    Not the best offering of Lee Child, but a decent story in the Jack Reacher tradition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A semi-happy ending for Jack.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Fantasies and reality.

    "I love the Jack Reacher stories."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love the twist in the story. I've come to expect things not to be what they seem to be. They just keep getting better.


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

    The narration is very well done.

    Story
    "Sadistic Villain"

    Tripwire, Book 3 of the Jack Reacher thrillers, abounds in emotional threat and creates a nervous anxiety as the momentum of the story builds. You just know terrible things are going to happen to the villain's latest targets. I won't say any more because I don't want to toss out a spoiler. If you read or listen to Tripwire, you'll understand what I mean.

    Suffice it to say that much of the book is an exercise in emotional sadism as well as physical acts of violence that have you constantly on the edge of your seat, waiting for more to happen to the hapless victims of the sadistic villain.

    On a side note, this book was published a few years before 9/11 which brought massive changes to the NY landscape. Some of the science paradigms have changed so don't think the author did a sloppy job in research. What he describes as SOP was the way it was back in the mid 1990's. Science has evolved and so has SOP of dealing with body remains.

    The consummate professional Jonathan McClain voices Reacher again and does a superb job with this story which gives more insight into Reacher's background, making you feel as if you know him better by the end of Tripwire.

    All in all, another taut suspenseful thriller from Lee Child, a master of the genre, and a superb acting job by narrator Jonathan McClain.

    "Not Worth the Time"
    What would have made Tripwire better?

    A plot that would make sense. I read the first two Reacher books and enjoyed them. This storyline was horrible.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    Not likely.


    What character would you cut from Tripwire?

    Tony.


    Any additional comments?

    This book just let me down. The storyline was absolutely unbelievable and I couldn't even finish the book.

    "Keeps you guessing with a good storyline."

    The third book of the Jack Reacher series begins to flesh out the character a bit more and provides some 3rd person narrative, instead of the 1st person (Jack Reacher) perspective alone.

    It is a good suspenseful novel I do wish a few paragraphs at the end of the book could have resolved the fates of some of the secondary characters.

    But overall it is an excellent addition to the series.

    "I enjoyed Dick Hill much better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends on if my friend had listened to Dick hill before


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    not so much


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

    I did not enjoy Jon McClains perforance


    Could you see Tripwire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Only if they picked the right actor, I suggest Jim Caviezel


    Any additional comments?

    None

    "Terrible narrator - not the usual one."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Nothing except McClain is a terrible narrator!


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

    No personality or good voice inflections. Dick Hill, the ususal narrator is so much better. Had to force myself to listen to McClain and then gave up. Originally listened to whole Reacher series from Library Audiobooks - all narrated by Dick Hill. Did not even realize there was another narrator when I ordered from Audible. Turns out #2 Die Trying, #3 Tripwire, and #4 Running Blind from Audible all narrated by McClain. I'm returning all and don't recommend anyone getting this narrator. Go to the library. Dick Hill really brings Reacher to life and gets you hooked on the series. When I called Audible they couldn't explain why the different narrator and said it was what the supplier provided. So make sure you know what you're getting. Don't base the Reacher series on this narrator. There is a world of difference when you listen to Dick Hill.
