Barbara | 5 comments JR is such a compelling character! Wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing favorite surprises/quirks/qualities of Jack Reacher?

For example, I was surprised to learn that Jack sends Christmas cards. (Think it was in Killing Floor.)

Erica (blondechick80) | 7 comments I like how in just about every novel he teaches us something about "human nature"

Jim (papastu) Erica wrote: "I like how in just about every novel he teaches us something about "human nature"" I agree with you. I actual feel like I knew some guys like him who came home from Nam in the 70's.

Barbara | 5 comments Love the comments! It seems Reacher's philosophy on the ownership of material goods is beginning to spill over into my decisions in life...another positive human nature lesson!

message 8: by Erica (new)

Erica (blondechick80) | 7 comments Also I tell people that everything I know about guns and street fighting I learned from Reacher.

message 9: by Judy (new)

Judy | 17 comments I like that he doesn't own "stuff" - ie. car, home (well, yes, briefly, but that didn't work out), he travels by bus or military transport, and his only "luggage" is a toothbrush - - - he buys a change of clothes when he gets to his destination.

I envy that because I feel I have too much STUFF.

Hapzydeco | 5 comments You never have an alibi when you need one. That's a universal law of nature. (One Shot)

Jay I love his internal clock that is spot on

message 14: by Gordon (new)

Gordon  (gmonie) Gone Tomorrow - Love the entire 3 person hotel conversation before he drops the hammer

Reacher - 'we know because they sent they're A-team & we sent our B-team'
Springfield/Samson - 'How do u know its our B-Team?'
Reacher - 'Because if that's our A-team we all better move to Canada'
