For Jack Reacher, being invisible has become a habit.

He spends his days digging swimming pools by hand and his nights as the bouncer in the local strip club in the Florida Keys.

But someone has sent a private detective to seek him out. Then Reacher finds the guy beaten to death with his fingertips sliced off. It's time to head north and work out who is trying to find him and why.

Not his best.

A typical Reacher but the ending felt really rushed. There were several characters who were right throughout the book and at the end you heard nothing about them. The ending was less realistic than usual, with the police effectively ignoring a trail of damage and dead bodies because 2 police officers had been killed. I doubt they have that much leeway ito overlook things. Resulted in a sloppy unfinished feel.

Could not finish

Could not finish this book.
Main character is portrayed as clever guy, but behave as a not very bright guy.
Most of the plot is clear from the start of the book

Narrarated like a baseball game play by play.

Narrator was awful. Couldn't wait till the end to review. I'll try to keep listening for the sake of the story.

Tripwired for Sound!


The crackling brickwork of Child's prose coupled with the crunchy granite of Harding's voice used together to form the human concrete that is Jack Reacher is a combination strong enough to lay a patio that would outlast Stonehenge. These were amongst the first audiobooks I ever listened to on CD and re-visiting them has been pure joy!

This one's a little more staid than the previous two, we get to see a lot of what's going on under the hood with Reacher and it's more about his investigative work and background rather than the brutal violence that he's famed for.

In truth this one could arguably have done with some tighter editing but it still delivers lots of classical Reacher deduction and the central story line is compelling. It retains the stark directness of approach and a relatively simplified world that characterizes the earlier Reacher books. I would guess that your old English teacher would never use them to demonstrate the finer points of the literary art but I bet he secretly has a copy of a couple of them stashed away at home!

Another Winner for Me

Terrific, love the way it's read, voice fitting well, even the ladies, in spite of Jeff's distinctly male voice.

Not my favourite reacher novel but great narration

Well I'm three books into the Jack Reacher series. I would say this was the slowest of the three with more intrigue than action and of course as we learn more and more about reacher, the more we like him, so this maybe compensates for the lack of pace.

The major positive was the narrator. He is probably the best yet for the reacher books and actually makes the female characters sound feminine and believable. I guess this is an ongoing issue in all audio books but it's a major plus and helps you get immersed in the story.

So still a 4/5 for the story and I'm already onto book four which I note has the same narrator!

Narrator

This guy reads like he’s reading a list. Awful narration. Characterisation of female characters: makes the all sound like bimbos.

For such a dull story there are lots of grotesque activities and characters. too much inactivity in the book, was glad when all was finally over.

Another great listen

You can always tell when it’s a good book because you get that slightly Bereft feeling when it’s finished.Getting used to Jeff Harding narrating Jack Reacher in fact it wouldn’t be the same without him. Well read

Scooby Doo.

The only function of women in this book is as victims, as objects for the hero to have sex with as complications, or to suffer sexual violence that the author describes with apparent relish and in pornographic detail. Sometimes Child is better than this, but not here. Entertaining but pretty offensive, and has a tenuous plot. And the "baddie" has a scarred face, hook hand, and is read in an "evil" voice. Yup.

Narration was painfully monotonous

Storyline not bad, but wouldn't have been more enjoyable with a different narrator. Did finish it though.

Okay, but far from Child's best.

Not a bad yarn, but I was left with unanswered holes and a story convolution near the end that screamed 'amateur'. Reacher asked what it was, so he told him. (But not the reader!) Terrible technique.

A struggle to get through

It felt like real police investigation, long and boring. There wasn't enough Reacher badassery for my liking.

Struggled to finish

Rubish narrator
Plot full of holes
The main character essentially reminiscing about how he was grooming the female lead when she was 15 and he was 20 something and now she's all grown up and vanurable as her dad just died and she is in trouble because her dad was tracking down a sexually violent captain hook.
