Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Die Trying by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.
Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere.
A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. He offers her a steadying arm.
And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach.
Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn't know why they've been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She's certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?

Seriously, Give It Any Rating You Want!

This is a book you could give almost any rating you want, and be able to justify it! For me these older Reacher books are gold dust. When I first started juggling CDs into my car stereo at service stations upon discovering Audiobooks my initial diet was Rebus and Reacher. Superb, classics both of them!

Listening to the gloriously crunchy, gravelly tones of Jeff Harding doing this amazing Reacher character and bringing him to life was a complete wonder to me. It is exactly the voice I imagine the tough, aloof Reacher having even if the female characters don't fare quite so well.

Add to this Child's punchy, staccato writing style, the deep thought analysis of Reacher calculating situations and the excellent action sequences I can easily rate this five stars very happily. The sniper sequences in his books I've always enjoyed and in Die Trying there is an absolute doozy.

On the other hand . . . the plot is bonkers. Really bonkers and if you put your plot hole pedant's hat on you will be like a pig in the proverbial rolling around for hours before you are finished. I can also well imagine some finding the narration a bit monotone even though I think it just fits perfectly.

So, choose your rating, I've gone for five stars based on the sheer exuberant enjoyment I've felt revisiting this, possibly fulled by a bit of nostalgia. Others will choose a variety of ratings but like it or loathe it you'll have plenty to say about Die Trying by the end.

Not a favourite

Enjoyed this romp of an adventure. Struggled at times with the narration style, in particular found 'He said / She said' very irritating.

Always gripping

Where does Die Trying rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love Lee Child stories. Jeff Harding reads to perfection! I have never been disappointed by any of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

He IS Jack Reacher. His laconic reading style is perfect for these books.
