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
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 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
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
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
6/10 It seems this type of book works well in audio, even more so when it is abridged as it cuts out any extra waffle or character development which is needless in an action romp where the characters tend to be in it for one book only. Reacher is hired to kill someone of minor importance, the Vice Pre Leggi tutto
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 mystery he is trying to solve. He has insights that stretch credibility, based on a hyper-aware level of observation, remarkabl Leggi tutto
Without Fail is not going to disappoint fans of Jack Reacher. Lee Child comes up with a new setting for Reacher's persuasive combination of detailed analytical thinking and overwhelming violence. Actually the latter is fairly understated in this story, and our hero does not end up taking on two, fou Leggi tutto
