I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I liked the action parts of this novel, but the story was extremely weak and unbelievable in so many areas I don't know where to start. I have read 2 other Lee Child novels which I enjoyed, but this one was weak.
Also Dick Hill, the narrator, should not try to do any characters other than the main character. Every supporting character sounds the same-whether man or woman...like an alcoholic older woman(who we have all met on the street asking for a donation to her habit). Advise to the author, Lee Child: have someone else do the supporting characters other than Dick Hill. Dick Hill does a fine job for the main "tough guy" character. But it was tedious listening to Dick Hill repeat the same intonations for every single supporting character, whether male or female. I wanted to stop listening it was so painful.
All the book's I've read on Reacher has always kept my interest, and I can say I will read all of the one's I don't have...Reacher Rock's
This was my first listen to the Jack Reacher novels, and I've already downloaded a few more. It's a fast paced story, full of action, suspense, murder, romance. You name it, this story has it, to keep the earbuds on for the duration.
The narration is excellent, so I'll definitely want to listen to more from Dick Hill, along with reading this series.
Yes, when I stopped the audio, I couldn't wait to get back to it.
Reacher's fight with Pauly
Fight scene with Pauly and when Reacher was fighting for his life while being pulled down by the ocean's under tow
Really had a blast listening to it.
Very long and drawn out storyline about midpoint. You have to pay attention to the middle part from Chapter 7 to the end. Everything made more sense and the ending had a bullseye accomplishment.
Late book bloomer
Too much back and forth from past to future found it hard to follow. Prefer that we have one direction unless you can make so you know when it's happening more obviously.
I thought Dick Hill did the best job of any of the books I have heard him read here because he didn't over exaggerate the character's . My husband is now hooked on jack reacher after this book .
