Again, Lee Child writes with such thought; in other words Reacher is thinking all the time and he works it all out so much in his mind; and we think with him.
This is truly the main pleasure of Lee Child's Reacher books. He writes so cleverly that he leads one to believe that his Reacher books are chock block full of action. In fact that there is actually a lot less action than you think.
I read this book with all the enjoyment I usually experience with his books. Towards the end you will find some moments that might make you laugh, they did so with me anyway. Such amusing irony.
I have read a swag of classic literature; British, French, Russian and American. I have to state my belief that Lee Child is actually an exceedingly 'good' writer. Because how many writers; basically about one story, one character; have you come across that are still great after so many books?
I'm so sorry that it was number 17 and I have only three or four left. I will miss them.
He's hitching (of course) and gets picked up by two men and a woman and inadvertently becomes their decoy. One of the men is FBI, and the other is a terrorist. The car belongs to the woman and was jacked so the two men could ditch their easily identified vehicle as they ran from a homicide. The story line gets a little convoluted and strange, not Child's best. However, I am a rabid fan of Jack Reacher (not the Tom Cruise one) so I can overlook some sins.
Always intriguing, Reacher again outguesses his enemies and saves America from terrorists. In this novel Reacher is a hitch hiker who gets involved with FBI, CIA, as well as terrorists. Can he tell the difference?
By Lee Child
SO disappointed in this book. I normally love Reacher stories (I’ve read every one Lee Child has ever written) … but this one, not so much.
It seemed to me that Lee Child was on autopilot or something. There were some really good and exciting moments followed by some of the dullest, monotonous filler I’ve ever read. Repetition seems to be key word of the day when it comes to this poppycock.
Not only that…there was an entire chapter…AN ENTIRE CHAPTER…devoted to someone walking up a driveway. WTH???
Nope. Not impressed with this one.
