    As you know, I m a fan of Lee Child This one s pure escapism well plotted action packed, adventurous The plot is basically a reworking of A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, and it was a lot of fun, but I sense this enormous franchise now starting to feel slightly creaky and tired In previous books, there s distinctly characterization, plot, fewer guns In this one, there are a lot guns, but very rudimentary characterization, which may be what the films need, but which I rather miss in print The love interest, Abby, is such a generic character that if the author hadn t kept describing her gamine, dressed in black, inexplicably good with a gun, refreshingly undemanding in bed I would have forgotten she was there at all The elderly couple he s helping are barely characterized at all Maybe I m just tired right now, and this wasn t the book I needed Maybe on another day I ll re read it, and it will hit the spot perfectly On the other hand, all good things come to an end, and I can sense Reacher starting to age I think that if some of that weariness could transfer to the character s behaviour and interactions, I might enjoy the journey As it is, though, I feel that I m stuck in a loop, going over the same old ground, with someone who does this very well, but who doesn t really want to be there.

    3.5 stars I am a huge Jack Reacher fan and was excited to get an early copy of the book Sadly, I was disappointed This was a violent story without the character development I am used to In this one Reacher gets involved in an Albanian Ukrainian gang war in a middle sized unnamed American city He sees an elderly man on the Greyhound Bus with a noticeable money envelope and saves him from a mugging This is what Reacher does best He s a modern day Knight of the Round Table He finds himself helping the man get out from a money lending scheme This is where it begins to unravel for me I don t know of anywhere where parents in their 70 s are required to pay for the medical care for children in their 50 s I am also not aware of people not getting medical care unless they pay cash up front I found this confusing I know of people being left with crushing medical bills but not getting care at all without cash seems odd to me The parents are paying money lenders at huge rates of interest for their daughter s medical care Her employer has let their medical insurance lapse and then disappeared It turns out he is a brilliant computer programmer This leads Reacher into a gang war with the two rival gangs trying to get the older people s money back There is a lot of fighting and deaths, than usual Reacher meets a girl and several men who just happen to have extensive military experience This small group takes on the gangs and one of them turns out to be backed by the Russians More bodies pile up It s just one death scene after another It s still entertaining but it wasn t my favorite It strained my credibility a little bit too much Still I turned the pages rapidly A disappointing Reacher is still better than a lot of what I read I can t wait for the next one I just hope it has characterization and fewer deaths.

    I am an avid Jack Reacher series reader always rushing to obtain his latest novels and racing to finish them with a feeling of great enjoyment However, the 24th novel did not even come close to that feeling of satisfaction and pleasure I felt Reacher was depicted as a comic book hero fighting the villains who were infiltrating the pear shape city with their fake news This is unlike Reacher in his previous books,for he did not need to kill all the villains

    I ve always enjoyed the fast paced, no holds barred nature of the Reacher series But I m starting to feel a bit tired of it This novel seemed to rely even on body counts and violence and less on any attempt at characterization and plot than past installments.

    We readers have just lost one of our fictional but moral good guy heroes The Reacher of past books smart and tough with a very strong history of standing up for the innocent disappears in this latest release He does still save two people but how he goes about it is over the top and so unlikely as to be laughable Maybe this was a movie script first I really hate to blast a book, especially one by a favored author, but this one is a 2 star at best, The book starts out like most Reacher novels but quickly turns to unrealistic bloodbath vigilantism Yes, Reacher is helping a family but this time he pulls in four other people, three of whom are civilians with no training, all fighting and killing gangsters On top of that, the book is packed with overwritten filler paragraphs I appreciate being given a pre pub reader s version but if this were my very first book by this author, I wouldn t have finished it and I certainly wouldn t go looking for other books of his Sorry, y all This one is an unbelievable dog.

    I love Lee Child I have read every single one of his books, and Reacher is one of my favorite fictional characters I love the way his mind works, the way he sees the world This book was just way over the top with violence and gratuitous death It lacked the thorniness and logic of many of Child s other Reacher books This is one of the first times I felt like I was reading a formula of a Reacher novel and not the real deal.
