Awesome Book

This truly was an awesome read. The story starts out with a sniper gunning down five people leaving work in a small Indiana city. Although this act of violence was so random, the police managed to track down the killer very quickly to an ex-soldier named James Barr....
This truly was an awesome read. The story starts out with a sniper gunning down five people leaving work in a small Indiana city. Although this act of violence was so random, the police managed to track down the killer very quickly to an ex-soldier named James Barr. The evidence was perfect against him. Without a doubt, this man is guilty, or is he? His few words before falling into a coma, " They got the wrong guy...Get Jack Reacher for me." Lee Child takes you into the mind of Jack Reacher, an experienced and skilled retired soldier. Jack Reacher, being one of the few that know of Barr's violent past, is prepared to do what ever it takes to expose the truth.

This book has absolutely nothing to complain about and is possibly one of the best books I have ever read. You never know what Reacher's got planned next or how he's going to take down his next victim. In other words, you would not want to mess with this guy. All in all, a fantastic book which I definitely recommend to all readers in search of a thrill.

recommend...

I was enjoying the Jack Reacher series until I saw the notice that Tom Cruise would be Jack Reacher in the movie. REally? 6 foot 5 and 240 pounds? Isn't there a better choice? Book okay, but soured now on the book series.

    haven't finished it yet.

    bought it due to the movie.

    won't buy another.

    dragging slow monotonous non-exciting lawyer cop procedural.

    spend your money else where.

    pass this up

    The characters were hokey and exaggerated. Reacher was made to be super-human but his physical and mental feats seemed well beyond his ability. The book was not very imaginative.
