An OK Reacher book - had to force myself to finish it, which is abnormal for me, as they're more of a page-turner. Probably my least favorite Reacher book I've read, and I've read many. It felt incredibly slow to me. A lot of looking for…Read moreRead more of this comment

This Lee Child book featuring Jack Reacher was disappointing as the story was weak and there was very little "rock 'em sock 'em" action I've learned to expect and enjoy from his other Reacher books. Still, it was certainly worth reading.

I've long been a fan of Jack Reacher, but less so since someone approved Tom Cruise to play him - what an absolute disaster he is as Reacher. You know who would have made a GREAT Reacher? Gary Sinise (Lt Dan, Forest Gump). He has the…Read moreRead more of this comment

After reading the short story collection, 'No Middle Name' this is the first Jack Reacher novel I tried. The setting is evocative and a simple premise (a little slow to develop) turns into a well-developed story. Child is a skilful writer…Read moreRead more of this comment

I liked this book, actually rather more than I usually like the Reacher tales. The fights were still part of the story, but it was a story that contained fights, not a series of fights strung together by a story.
I don't know if Childs…Read moreRead more of this comment

Best book in a long time in the Reacher series. Child is starting to have a discernible theme to his stories in this case the horrible treatment of our maimed and wounded warriors by an uncaring nation/political system. Always ready to…Read moreRead more of this comment

Agree with the comments that this book gets back on track -- the last few, following Never Go Back, have been peculiar or worse. One area in which Child excels (beyond gratuitous violence, of course) is his portrayal of physical settings.…Read moreRead more of this comment

Yes, it is Lee Child's Jack Reacher formula yet again.Cliches abound both in language, people and situations but... I think Lee Child in this one feels duty bound to give an insight into the sad fates of those veterans of the wars the US…Read moreRead more of this comment
Totally unbelievable. I guess if you are a fan of Wonder Woman and Batman, you will like this book. Put your mind in neutral and you can get through it. I did but it was an endurance test. Don't waste your time.

Wow, such a page-turner! Very formulaic Reacher (damn, I wish Cruise hadn't played him in the movie, I can't I'm now getting the wrong mental image as I read the novels), which if it works for you, continues in this novel. Very…Read moreRead more of this comment

Really disappointed, not much action, a lot of geography. Actually Tom Cruise could have done this one. It is the only Jack Reacher book that this could apply to. I kept reading only because I thought there would actually be some action.

After his disappointing effort on the last book, Lee Child seems to be getting back to the style that made most of his books great. I say "seems" because there is still a little too much fluff for me as a Reacher fan. We are not used to…Read moreRead more of this comment
