Too Short of a short story

Jack Reacher is on the road, hitching a ride, per usual. He gets a ride from some young Canadians, who are planning a hike through some the last unspoiled wilderness in North America in the dense forests of Maine. Reacher parts ways after sharing a hot meal. Reacher decides to check out a quiet town. First the trail is closed, and then the military police show up in force. Maybe it’s a drill, or maybe it’s’ trouble. Child provides us with some suspense, action and Reacher’s usual “I said nothing”.

This is a quick read and I loved the descriptions of upper Maine. When I lived in Nova Scotia we would go on hiking trips in Maine or sail the off shore Island. Maine is a beautiful state. I usually enjoy a short story as a break from reading some very long books. But this book was a bit too short. I felt as if the author just abruptly ended the story and left me dangling. Dick Hill did he usual great job narrating the book.

Not A Drill would have made a great full length

What did you love best about Not a Drill?

I'm really enjoying where Lee Child is going with Jack Reacher. I like that he doesn't act like he did when he was younger although I am sure he can still take on three or four in a brawl! This is a good story, no show of testosterone but instead Reacher is relaxing, going places he's never been and using the brain Lee gave him for figuring out a pretty good mystery.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Superb! As always. Dick Hill is Jack Reacher.

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

I did.
