Sue asked Lee Child:

Hi Lee! Long time fan of Jack Reacher novels! I just love the subtle, sarcastic humor of Reacher. Would you say that he has YOUR style of humor? What makes you laugh out loud? Continued success with your writing and look forward to many Reacher movies to come out!

Lee Child Thanks! Yes, I would say Reacher and I share a sense of humor. I remember laughing out loud when I wrote some lines in “Personal” - usually when Reacher feels some kind of sardonic bewilderment about the craziness of whatever world he’s up against.
