I submitted the following comments on bookk 4:
The Jack Reacher series is at the top level of this genre. Seldom do I go over $0.99 for my non technical reading, but for this series I bite the bullet and pay top dollar. A difficulty I have with these books is finding a good place to put them down. I find myself staying up too late, just to finish one of these books. When they last only one or two days, they "bust my recreation budget." Too, they infringe on time I should spend doing other things.
Reacher, the hero of the series, is one of the most likable I have found. As I have a strong "Don Quixote Complex," I relate to his ideal of righting wrongs, protecting the weak and killing bullies.
In every story he beds a beautiful, strong, smart woman. He spares us most of the details, which is appreciated since I would rather experience them myself than read about them. Lee Child's women characters are feminine while possessing the qualities which, coming from a long line of capable feminine forbearers, I admire in the weaker sex. (These characteristics have bread true for the next two generations, and show signs of expression in my Great Granddaughter.)
Don't read these books looking for some great literary masterpiece. There is no great wisdom shared, other than the need to right wrongs, protect the weak and destroy bullies. They are "pot-boilers," but good entertainment.
This applies to at least the first 7 books in the serries.
If you’ve read any previous Reacher novels you know the kind of goodness you will find within: a compelling mystery, high tension and Reacher’s unstoppable dogmatism that will ultimately undo the bad guys. This one is no exception. I am always amazed at how fast I can read a Lee Child novel. There is something about the way he writes that makes it all too easy to roll into the next chapter. I also enjoy the movies, especially the first, but I can’t help but think this would make a great TV series. Jack Reacher is too rich of a character to be confined to only two mediums, although the novels will always be the first and probably best place to find him.
