I always enjoy the Reacher books. My only complaint with this one is there are a few phrases the narrator speaks so softly as to be unintelligable.
Lee child's detailed descriptions go beyond good story making and into a cascading plethora of miniscule details. the book could have been cut in half with more efficient delivery of his descriptions. almost wonder if he's paid by the word. dick Hill is an outstanding narrator.
I have fallen in love with Jack . The human side of him and the ex - soldier. The characters are well developed and the story is intriguing. If you haven't listened to any of the other books you may lose some character development but the book basically stands on its own , so you won't miss anything important.
Classic and totally gripping. I ate my lunch in the car so I could listen to this story! Lee Child is a superb writer, and Dick Hill is the voice of Jack Reacher. Thank you both for a terrific story.
I'll see ya in the smoke.
3 stars for a book that I finish, bare minimum
too long, story tends to drag
the intense action scenes hold too much detail for my liking, real memory isn't so detailed in periods of high impact, life threatening, and painful activity. listening to so much detail going on and on was unreal and a let down, IMHO
the fact that the story went on so long just to lead up to one of the overly detailed scenes put me off.
So author that writes about law enforcement, military and ex military not so subtly harps on guns. Ugh. Hate that part, but was an entertaining story, as you can see by my rating.
I live vicariously through the female leads in the stories I read. History, biographies, "cozy" mysteries are my faves. Can't put them down.
If you read the Jack Reacher stories, don't miss this one. Involved, interesting twists, great action scenes...all the best parts of this super human character.
