Jack Reacher is a great Protagonist. He is a an advocate and champion to those usually picked on or assaulted by the strong and powerful. His mindset is one of being bigger, badder and stronger than the meanest criminal out there.

I fell and broke my leg in numerous places in February (this is almost May) and these books helped me through a very dark place. They don't require a HUGE amount of concentration, but that is not to say there is not a good plot to follow. So Lillian~ go for it!!(less)

I am glad I have the opportunity of rating the first 6 books as a bundle, because I am reading them so quickly I am not entirely able to separate them.
Jack Reacher was born in an US army base in Berlin of an officer father and French mother, moved all over the world as a child and then joined the army himself and became an MP, an army cop. When the series begins, however, he has left the army and decided to wander, not even carrying a bag, owning nothing and as free as it is possible to be - no

I'd never found mystery, per se, interesting before I met Jack Reacher, yet I read every Reacher novel published soon after reading the first. Child is full of contradictions. He writes terrific suspense scenes, but his narrative so often runs to staccato subject-verb-object patterns that it can be laughable. Reacher has admirable values, but they dont include sparing the life of someone who crosses him or playing by the rules. He's completely formulaic in his treatment of women. Not high recomm ...more

#4 in the series and I'm liking Jack Reacher less and less. But, saying that, I still cannot believe Hollywood cast Tom Cruise to play Reacher. Chipmunk. I also didn't think this one was written as well as the previous. If I continue this series--and there are what? 20 or so?--it'll be a challenge to see how they stand up. Or should I say who Jack Reacher turns into. Hmmm. Maybe he does turn into a chipmunk.

Jack reacher is an interesting character every time. Tom Cruise is not and never will b JR.

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.

Love these books and the Reacher character in general. I could rear them over and over and still enjoy them.

Read Personal - couldn't find a way to select it alone. I didn't realize I hadn't set it down. Engaging. Will look for more of this series.

Great light and fast reads. I typically buy the latest at the airport before a longish flight and finish it by the time we land!

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
