Publisher's Summary

Killing Floor is the first book in the internationally popular Jack Reacher series. It presents Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode: a righter of wrongs, the perfect action hero.

Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he's about to regret. Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in 30 years.

The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene. As nasty secrets leak out, and the body count mounts, one thing is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

    Story
    "Detective Adventure Military Police: Excellent!"
    If you could sum up Killing Floor in three words, what would they be?

    Escapism at its best.


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

    Yes, by weaving a cohesive and interesting story.
    I also felt part of the action, like I was there.


    Any additional comments?

    It's just some fun. Don't try to analyse it too much, just enjoy it and forget your day to day troubles. Also its written in a positive manner.

    "Fantastic"

    Likeable protagonist, compelling and believable narrator, rich plot with an engaging storyline. I like all types of thrillers- anything from Stephen King to Gillian Flynn. This is well up there

    Story
    "Started off well but a struggle to finish"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, i would rather i had not bothered with this particular book. The actions of Jack Reacher as the story progressed seemed more and more unbeleveable. I completely disengaged with the main character.


    What could Lee Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make a more like able main character.


    Do you think Killing Floor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not for this story line as its all wrapped up by the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was excellent, can't fault it at all. I just can't see the appeal of Jack Reacher as a character, i was very bored towards the end of the book it just seemed like one cliche after another. Also Reacher to a large degree seems no better than the people he went up against.

    "Brilliant!"
    Would you listen to Killing Floor again? Why?

    Yes. As with any book I am sure I have missed bits.


    What other book might you compare Killing Floor to, and why?

    Sorry nothing to compare with, the book, the narration & the character are unique.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Th e Jack Reacher character. This is the second JR book I have listened to and I am sure will not be the last. having listened to The Affair & thoroughly enjoyed Jeff Harding narration I was a little nervous that Dick Hill would not be as good as the narrator is important with audible books however he was brilliant!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end however I understood without this end there would not be other JR books.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to start book 3. My 2 hour travel time to & from work is no longer a chore.

    "Not bad comic book fiction but.."

    5 stars, seriously.. 5 stars should be saved for one of the BEST books you've ever read not this sort of thing. Is this really the one the finest works of literature that you've ever encountered? The 5 star review is fast becoming a meaningless barometer.

    "Lee Child - Genius"

    My third Jack Reacher read, previously No Middle Name and Night School, chronologically, quite a wide spread of his work.
    Enjoyed the detail and research that LC must have undertaken, these factors give the stories authenticity.
    Would recommend to Steven King aficionados, good action alternative.

    "Don't messy with Reacher"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the first Jack Reacher book and I have read many of his books so it was quiet nice to go back to the beginning and listen to this one again.
    I have found the later books have all got very predictable Reacher knows who the bad guys are and just goes around killing everybody in his way until he gets to the boss. This book however isn't like that he actually has to work hard to find out who the bad guys are and what they are up to before they throw a hazard at him that he just can't manage.

    "Just not my thing"

    Well read, with an interesting plot but action heroes are not really my thing. Seen Lee several times at Harrogate Crime Writers Festival and he's lovely. Such a nice man.
