What would have made Jack and Joe better?
If it had a story to tell other than looking for Jack Reacher. A little action and intrigue would also have been good.
What was most disappointing about Diane Capri’s story?
That there was no story.
Which scene was your favorite?
When the prospect of "seeing" Lt Summer again was first raised. That was short-lived. Summer was dangled as a coming treat in such a way that it soon became obvious it would never happen. How and why I won't write here in case a reader of this decides to listen anyway, but it wasn't exciting.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. Lee Child can't possible write Jack Reacher stories fast enough. Finding this series was thrilling - it seemed like a good idea. I could not finish the story - got halfway through and was still waiting for something to happen. Boring and disappointing.
Any additional comments?
I rated the performance 3 stars as the narrator reads well - though her male voices were all alike - slow and raspy - but that probably would have be a minor thing if the story was any good.
I liked this book better than I had the previous "Search for Reacher" books. However, I'm not sure I like the overall approach. Not that there's anything wrong with the story or the way it's told. I guess I picked these up expecting a traditional Reacher style story. The stories are a pretty good third-party view of Reacher. But, they lack the compelling natural law based visceral experience of a good Reacher story. I will keep listening as they are getting better.
