Ahhh, finally -- an actually satisfying shorter Jack Reacher story. It's longer than the others I've tried -- a novella, not just a short story. That's probably a lot of it, but there's something more to it -- just don't ask me what. Reacher's on summer vacation before his senior year -- pretty mu...

Reacher sets out for the Canadian border, to make it as far north on this Interstate as possible, just because. Not too far south from there, he stops in a tourist-y town, a haven for backpackers, hikers, wilderness types in general. Before he leaves, a whole lot of military types show up and block ...

Ahh, this is more like it -- I was afraid that I was going to have to give up on these shorts to preserve my appreciation for the novels. But Lee Child and Dick Hill pulled it off. Its the mid-80s, Reacher's a Captain in the Army and is called to Washington to go undercover as an Army sniper. Some...

Always a great read/listen.

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, remark...

My "Let's redo all the big sci-fi classics" odyssey continues, appropriately, with an odyssey. "No trilogy should have more than four volumes" (Clarke is a man after Douglas Adams heart :)There's a huge ambiguity of course, with the beginning of this. The gift of the monolith, is it the evolution...

Typical Reacher for you. As always, I liked this book. Tight writing, fast pace, action, suspense, twists and turns. Everything I need in a thriller is here. What I also enjoyed was Child's intuition for the time. Shortly after 9/11, we see a slightly different Reacher here. Whereas in previous book...

I'm getting some bad vibes off of this one. One dad has already beaten his son, and another girl's father has begun to look at her lasciviously. And I'm only on page 120. As most of my friends know, I can't stand books in which kids are abused for the sake of "entertaining" a reader--I think that ...
