4.75/5 “Why look for trouble?”“I'm not looking for trouble. I don't see it as trouble.” Alright, Lee Child had me glued to the pages in his engrossing suspense/thriller once again. I couldn't put this book down even for a minute! Jack Reacher is amazing as always and I admire him even more in this Leggi tutto
I like Reacher. I really do. But Lee Child creates the most flawed scenarios and it drives me batty sometimes. Reacher has been recruited to help deflect an attempt to assassinate the new VP. Now, if we are to believe this story, the Secret Service is employing idiots. For example, Reacher specifies Leggi tutto
The sixth Jack Reacher novel opens when a woman named M. E. Froelich, who is the Secret Service agent in charge of security for Vice President-Elect Brook Armstrong, asks Reacher to assassinate Armstrong--in theory, of course. Someone has been sending death threats to Armstrong, which have been inte Leggi tutto
I was pretty disappointed with the 6th book in the Jack Reacher series. The first few were brilliant - fast, furious and somewhat believable despite the larger than life protagonist and plot lines. Without Fail lacked most of the drama that we have come to expect from Lee Child's thrillers. The plot Leggi tutto
This is an important Reacher book. Don't skip it. An extra whole-star for the important and interesting character background here. Even though the pacing is often slow with plot holes, and there is sometimes excessive detail (a sad flaw of Child, too often), I give the book 4-stars. 1. This book is p Leggi tutto
Popsugar Challenge 2021 - A Book in a different format than what you normally read Book 6 in the Jack Reacher series and I'm here for the ride. Arguably in a series you can almost lose the edge of the seat dramatics because you know in a 25 plus book series that your man is going to survive but Lee
Comatose Literature: "Without Fail" by Lee Child When summer is just around the corner, I start thinking about what books to take on holidays. Beach or pool is also important, but the real clincher are the books. And the first question on the agenda is which books should I bring? More important ev Leggi tutto
PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW RELATES TO AN ABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK - I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WHEN I LISTENED TO IT OR WROTE THIS REVIEW. This is a bare-bones thriller, a puzzle played-out in blood and death, with almost no emotional involvement. Jack Reacher stands at the centre, almost more puzzling than the myste Leggi tutto
Okay, another good read. Jack is what some may call an "odd duck"...sorry for the technical terminology. I mean he refuses to use or have anything that puts him on "the grid". He travels around looking like a huge homeless giant, he throws clothes away rather than wash them, no one can find him... Y Leggi tutto
