Story was interesting but sooooo drawn out

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It took Reacher over 10 hours in this audio before he started to defending himself. This became very irritating after awhile. Parts of the plot were just not credible enough i.e. A person on the way to blow up people, the good guys know of four possible cities for the bomb, yet they tell no one so they can get assistance looking in all all locations but instead they guess where he's going. That's irresponsable and really stupid!

Would you recommend Die Trying to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes with a lot of caveats.

Any additional comments?

The story was good and compelled me to spend the time to finish it but it took so long for the good guys to start fighting back, the book was actually putting me in a bad mood. I really like Jack Reachers character but I am not sure I want to read more in the series.

Great book - mediocre voice work

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

The plot was fast paced and balanced as it moved between the various sub-plots. Goor, and enjoyable. Loved the book, not the narration.

How could the performance have been better?

The voices and 'accents' that the narrator chose to use were forced and poorly done. From the sounds of it, he has never been to Boston, but makes the listener suffer through his interpretation of a Bostonite who lives in Chicago. Also, his attempts at doing other voices (Korean dry cleaner and other shop keepers was painful and borderline insulting). Have to suffer through 3 books before we get back Dick Hill.
