Read in January, 2012

Mannhattan, KS to Denver drive, picked up a used copy of the 3 hr abridged audio CD version to keep me busy.
So over the top it's funny at times, and the reader's attempt at the female voice is cringe worthy. Why is this guy so hugely popular now? It is interesting to listen to a book w/ scenes in the WTC. The action scenes are so full, and quickly read, they are hard to stay w/ - and the sex scenes are, well laughable. As is Child trying to give Reacher a memorable tag, "Here's a dollar for your car. If you have any problem with that just shake your head." Which gets over used.
But, given another long drive, and another cheap used copy of one of his audio books I'd do it again. Maybe just to try and figure out why Chld has become such a huge, best selling author. No "color" to his books (like Parker had w/ Spencer - Boston and beer and food and jogging shoes and outfits).
