i normally love this character, but i'm getting a bit bored with him. the book has an absolutely brilliant beginning and completely draws you in, but reacher is (literally and figuratively) getting a bit old.
it's a bit like a re-hash of his older novels, except it's written in the first person, which is rather odd. but come on jack, it's 2011! i refuse to believe someone could still be so technologically illiterate. learn how to use a computer/mobile phone etc. my mum's nearly 80 and she is more techno-literate than Reacher! it's really beginning to stretch credulity and my patience.
overall a solid, (but apart from first few chapters), unexciting listen.

Reacher grabs your attention with the "List" and keeps it with cleverness and guile. The finale is pure Reacher and Worth the listen in itself !
I think the Narrater should have been Reacher in the movie - even if he is too short (?) his voice is Reachers voice to me.
I am a Jack Reacher fan and clearly spend much of my subconscious energy being him. It works to a formula, it's a Lee Child, Jack Reacher story we expect and demand nothing less.
I read the other review and just thought, If you don't like mice don't go to Disney. I for one wasn't disappointed. Great story and, dispite the enevitable, you are on the edge all the way through.
Keep the crazy hollywood casting out of your head Jack Reacher is here to save us all, and he's good at it.

Brilliant, not listened to anything by Lee Child before, just had him recommended.
Style of narration very Chandleresque as it moves along with brief but punchy sentences - I certainly was left with some grim pictures in my head.
Story line very good and kept me engaged only loosing it on a very sunny afternoon in the garden when I drifted off in the sunshine...had to rewind to where I last remembered.
Have already downloaded another Lee Child story.
ps hope the rest have recording quality as good as this one as in the car, no hiss was apparent.
