Very disappointed in this one. My least favorite of the 14 jack reacher books I’ve read. Bad story line. Boring characters. This book made me fall asleep, while the others made me want to stay up reading all night.
Each Jack Reacher book I read the theme stays the same . Jack Reacher serves as judge jury and executioner . Just a little different variation on the story line as well as location . The books are somewhat redundant
This is my first read by this author. I've been reading about Jack Reacher from the novelist, Diane Capri. And her books, Jack always is in the background and the person they are seeking. It was nice to see him as a real character and part of the "active real" plot. Someone suspenseful in parts, but not the edge of your seat kind. Very likable characters.
One of the worst books in the Reacher series. I was so unbelievably bored the whole time. There were no good twists and the plot was boring. The ending was very anti climatic. I would suggest skipping this one completely.
As I understand, Cruise bought the rights and cast himself. 6'5, 250lbs, fists like 2X4s and hands like shovels, add all the other character descriptives, and of course it's Tom Cruise. Hint. He was cast in "Magic Mike" ( so would likely have been interested in even an average script). Apparently, directorial debut and staring in action movie opening end of '14, is over 6'3. Guess.
I have read every book in this series and this is by far the worst. Actually, let me re-phrase that, this is the only one I really did not like at all. Others were somewhat weak (61 Hours, Echo Burning), but still had their high points. It almost seems like it was written by someone else, completely different style with no suspense or good idea of who the bad guys even were. Very disappointed.
Unbelievable plot. Stuff just happens. Lee Child must have been paid by the word as he drug events on forever. He never develops a feeling for the characters and Reacher is a filthy slob with no direction in life.
