    "Problem with audio"

    Half of chapter 17, the climax, is missing. i tried downloading it on several devices to be sure.I do not recommend this version. Story was average, not very thrilling. Figured out the twist early on.

    Story
    "Lee Child write fun novels, not great literature"

    At age 43 British TV executive Jim Grant started writing novels using the pen name Lee Child about a retired US Army major turned vagabond he named Jack Reacher. After 21 novels, several short stories, and two movies it a good bet that more Americans can identify Jack Reacher than can name the US VP. Lee Child is very much a commercial writer; he writes for commercial success. I have no issue with that because the Reacher character is intriguing and the novels are all great fun. Child/Grant has built a large following so all of his novels are guaranteed best sellers. Lee Child is clever.

    I have listened to all Jack Reacher novels at least once. Although some of the novels do build on the previous one, others skip around in the chronology of Reacher's life so reading them in order is not especially helpful.

    My only issue with Tripwire with the narration which is completely satisfactory, but Dick Hill, not Jonathan McClain, is the voice of the Reacher novels and he is who I want and expect to hear when I listen to a Reacher audio novel.

    "Good book but missing part of critical chapter ."

    I liked everything about it until Chapter 17 cut off mid sentence leaving out critical information to the conclusion of the book. I went back twice to see if it was just a player error but no luck. Disappointing.

    I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.

    Story
    "Story dragged a little but otherwise excellent."
    What made the experience of listening to Tripwire the most enjoyable?

    The narrator as Jack. Really gave him a cool effective yet passionate demeanor.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Anytime Jack was in a conflict. The love story. But thats just me personally. I dont go for love stories. this one is VERY well written tho.


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

    Jack really feels like a flesh and blood human. I felt like i had a known him forever by the time the book was over.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I grimaced alot at the villians doings. So cruel and callous. I truly hated him.


    Any additional comments?

    The story and mystery wasnt as good as the past two books but i really enjoyed this one other wise.

    Story
    "I wish I could get into this series"

    I have tried very hard to enjoy this series. This is my 4th or 5th Reacher novel. I just don't understand the love for Lee Child. I don't see why people fall over for these books.

    What I appreciate about Reacher is he is not a 'super hero'. Yes he can do more than any mortal man and has a flawless personal ethic. But unlike many series', he is still based in some sort of reality.

    I also appreciate that his novels are not 'end of the world' affairs. So many military thrillers are poised on world changing disaster if the protagonist doesn't pull through. The Reacher stories are a little more human. Smaller stories. This is good because its more believable.

    What I don't like is Reacher has really no flaws. The guy can do no wrong. It gets boring. He also always finds some sophisticated lady to fall in love with him for the duration of the story. The villains are a little ridiculous as well.

    Here in TripWire, what cracks me up were the bad guys. The main dude is a twisted little psycho. I guess he was ok. But not plausible or well developed. He has some minions. I don't understand why they stick around. I couldn't figure what was in it for them. Are they killing left and right and each other for $70k and a pension? There is real estate involved. Vietnam legacies, old ties to Reachers past, but ties are goofy.

    I don't agree that this is a good suspense novel because I could not get into the plot or the characters. Because I could not get into those characters, I could not take the ridiculous plot seriously. HOWEVER, if you like other Reacher stories, this is not any different, so you'll probably enjoy this one.

    "WHO DONE IT NOVEL?"

    This book was pretty good overall. Sort of felt like a mystery to me. I did enjoy learning about the remains of our fallen soldiers and the lengths that are taken to bring everyone home. This book kept up a faster pace than others that I heard.

    Everyone hates on Johnathan McClain but I find his reading very good. It's not the best but it's not the worst either.

    I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.

    "Another good one"

    This is not my favorite series but it is very solid. I enjoy the storyline and there is enough suspense to keep me very interested. I plan on continuing the series to the end.

    no

    "One of the best in Jack Reacher series."
    What did you love best about Tripwire?

    Slightly different tack on the Jack Reacher series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jack comes full circle and introduces his first commanding officer character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely but I never have that much time. I prefer the unabridged series.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Jack Reacher fan (movie version not withstanding) you will not be dissapointed!

    "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.
