From the heights to the depths, how the mighty have fallen. This book is just not worth the effort. I was afraid that Child was no longer interested in the series after the last book. Now I am sure of it.

To avoid spoilage I will say only that this book is all about "mine is bigger than yours" and that gets boring in a hurry. I liked Reacher initially because he wasn't that way. He was one hero who reacted based on need, not emotion. Now he's a formula tough guy who thinks with a part of his body that isn't attached to his brain.

When I started fast-forwarding on Disc One, I knew I'd never finish the book. I just quit in the middle of Disc Two. Reacher got stupid and predictable. Oh well. Thankfully I have plenty of other things to read.
