KILLING FLOOR (Director: Michael Page) - "I was eating eggs and drinking coffee. I was in a booth, at a window, reading somebody's abandoned newspaper. Outside, the rain had stopped but the glass was still pebbled with bright drops. I saw the police cruisers pull into the gravel lot. They were moving fast and crunched to a stop. Light bars flashing and popping. Doors burst ...more

I don't want to spoil this for other readers. I'll just say that I am currently reading the series as a friend of mine has them all and is lending them to me. Reacher is ex-military and trouble finds him wherever he goes. He uses his military expertise and contacts to solve each mystery. I've been told by ex-military people that the author is very authentic. Also, Child has his character all over the U.S., the geographics of his novels is rich. All of which amazes me given that the author is ori ...more

The Jack Reacher books are far from being the greatest literature on the planet, but they work well as guilty pleasures.

I admit, I have more than a couple of issues with the writing yet the stories are always entertaining and always make up for it. They are the kinds of books I have no wish to admitting I enjoy, yet I cannot deny the fact that I do enjoy the Jack Reacher novels.

Excelent book, one of the best in recent times, there were five deserved stars until the last thirty pages.
The plot is interesting, the action is allert and twisted, characters are strong, Reacher is a likeable person, although he puts quite a small price on human lives. Above all, it's the style I've liked, more than the written facts. Unfortunatelly, last pages seem childish: the awkward highway shooting (with Picard staying alive?!? despite been shot with a powerful gun), the assault on the p

I am definitely a Lee Child addict. I just finished reading Tripwire and it was great. I started out reading some of his newer Jack Reacher books and decided I needed to go back to the beginning. It has given me a much better understanding of Jack Reacher's back ground. This one had lots of twists and turns and even though somewhere along the story I thought I had it figured out (and I did) it wasn't until close to the end I was positive.

I have become a Lee Child addict. His character Jack Reacher has the answer to every situation in life. If I'm ever kidnapped, I know what to do. I know to use my elbow, not my hand if hitting someone in the head. Fantasies aside, Child is a writer so totally in command of details and structure that he deserves to be in the Literature section at Barnes and Noble, as opposed to Mystery.

Here we go again. Reacher gets off at a bus stop by a town in the south, because his brother mentioned a blues guitarist there. It is a creepy Stepford town, everything clean. Soon Reacher is being set up for a murder, and then another body turns out to be his brother, a higher up in the Treasury Department who is looking at a counterfeit scam. Reacher has a great love affair with a detective, Roscoe, which was well done. But it drags, and there are ridiculous plot contrivances. But, hey, we all ...more

In his early novels, Lee Child lets Jack Reacher show a little more emotion and be a little more vulnerable, and I found that as admirable as the near-Terminator-endurance of the later Jack Reacher. These three are shorter, and I would prefer the action more filled out, as it is in the later novels, but they are still entertaining, and for those want the whole arc of Jack Reacherdom, these books are well worth the read--or the listen, which, since Dick Hill is reading, I highly recommend. Enjoy.

these were ok. i had them as audio books, and the stories were very different. i have read many lee child/reacher books and really do like his stuff. i think it gets better and better. i read a comment that if the reviewer were ever kidknapped, jack reacher has taught what to do. funny. this is a series that has dramatically improved. i recomment 63 hours and the affair. 63 hours is part of a mini grouping..very nice.

"Jack Reacher discovers the daughter of his best military commander and a disfigured Vietnam vet who stole an identity and lived a life of crime in NYC, assisted by his hook hand."

This is a set of several of his great titles. I love his Jack Reacher main character, who is nothing like the Tom Cruise portrayal, and style of writing.

Lee Child was born October 29th, 1954 in Coventry, England, but spent his formative years in the nearby city of Birmingham. By coincidence he won a scholarship to the same high school that JRR Tolkien had attended. He went to law school in Sheffield, England, and after part-time work in the theater he joined Granada Television in Manchester for what turned out to be an eighteen-year career as a pr ...more
