    "Great series after Tom Clancy"

    Great action stories. Excellent follow on to the Tom Clancy series. Loved the book. Not the best narrator, but tolerable.

    "Decent"

    Decent Jack Reacher story not the best, but not the worst.
    The narrator was terrible. Johnathan McClain was so bad, so terrible I couldn't help but laugh at times. He has about 4 voices in his arsenal, they're all awful. Sometimes he would assign a character a particular accent or tone of voice or manner of speech etc. Then just drop it half way thru. He was so bad, that I couldn't stop listening. I needed a good laugh and got it.

    "Hooked on this series!!!"

    Not too fond of the readers voices, but overall I was able to stay interested. To be specific on the reader, several of the voices seem to be too similar.

    Otherwise, another great adventure. Looking forward to Tripwire.

    "Excitement in every chapter"

    The story had many twists and turns. You really get to know the characters and root for them or hope for a painful death!

    "Loved this book"

    This is the first book I have experienced by Lee Child. I loved the way he unfolded the story and how he takes us through the way the characters put things together. I also enjoyed the narration of Jonathan McClain very much. Unfortunately for me, I am having a rough time listening to the other Reacher novels that are not read by McClain. I think his voice is Jack Reacher for me! Guess I have some reading to do!

    Story
    "Frustrating"
    What disappointed you about Die Trying?

    This was the first Jack Reacher book I've purchased. I like Preston and Child's Pendergast series but this was far from the type of storytelling found in the Pendergast series. This story was frustrating, in that the main character keeps getting kidnapped/imprisoned/tied up/captured, etc. over and over again by the same group of bad guys.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    Probably not another Reacher book, no.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator was largely pretty good.

    "Much better narrator than Dick Hill"

    I can't express how much better Jonathan McClain is as a narrator for the Jack Reacher stories. For one huge reason. No matter how strong Lee Child writes them, Dick Hill makes all the female characters sound weak, pathetic, tremulous and usually on the verge of tears or hysteria. These thrillers need a more versatile voice than Hill's.
