Summary

Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of tell-tale signs, mostly because they're nervous. By definition they're all first-timers. Riding the subway in New York at 2:00 in the morning, Reacher knows the 12 giveaway signs to look out for. Watching one of his fellow passengers, he becomes sharply aware: one by one, she ticks off every bulletpoint on his list.

So begins the heartstopping new thriller starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher.

GET OFF THE TRAIN JACK!

I am a Jack Reacher fan and clearly spend much of my subconscious energy being him. It works to a formula, it's a Lee Child, Jack Reacher story we expect and demand nothing less.



I read the other review and just thought, If you don't like mice don't go to Disney. I for one wasn't disappointed. Great story and, dispite the enevitable, you are on the edge all the way through.



Keep the crazy hollywood casting out of your head Jack Reacher is here to save us all, and he's good at it.

Echoes of Chadler

Brilliant, not listened to anything by Lee Child before, just had him recommended.

Style of narration very Chandleresque as it moves along with brief but punchy sentences - I certainly was left with some grim pictures in my head.
Story line very good and kept me engaged only loosing it on a very sunny afternoon in the garden when I drifted off in the sunshine...had to rewind to where I last remembered.

Have already downloaded another Lee Child story.

ps hope the rest have recording quality as good as this one as in the car, no hiss was apparent.

GONE TOMORROW

Another good Reacher story,well read with a good plot line. One piece of advice Jack ; if you want to continue your current successful lifestyle, take just one day off from killing people and do a computer course.....

Lee Child back on form

After the disappointment of the previous book, even its title escapes me, Gone Tomorrow is right up there as one of the better Jack Reacher books and is a return to form for Lee Child. An excellent story from start to finish, fast paced and an exhilarating ride. Jeff Harding puts in his usual professional performance, highly recommended.

Reacher at his best

What did you like best about this story?

His best is killing people. I lost count of the number he killed in this one. Reacher keeps you riveted to the end.

Disappointed

I have read many Jack Reacher books, and enjoyed them all.
I really didn’t like this at all, and I think it may be down to the narration rather than the story itself. Monotonous voice, terrible portrayal of the female voices. The way he read the story made me really dislike the character of jack reacher. I will definitely not be listening to another jack reacher audio book, and will revert back to reading them.

Gave up listening:(((((

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Set myself a task. Read all of the Reacher books. But this book was a chore. Didn't like it one bit!!!!!

Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

Yes, because I know he has written good books before. This one was a let down. I didn't find it compelling like the other books that I had listened to.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He read the book okay. It was when he did the different voices that it detracted from the book. I don't think he is the right voice for this genre of books

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Listened to the same chapter a couple of time and still did not get it. Also kept falling asleep

Any additional comments?

The next book 61 hours needs to make up for my disappointment!!!!!

getting a bit same-ish

i normally love this character, but i'm getting a bit bored with him. the book has an absolutely brilliant beginning and completely draws you in, but reacher is (literally and figuratively) getting a bit old.

it's a bit like a re-hash of his older novels, except it's written in the first person, which is rather odd. but come on jack, it's 2011! i refuse to believe someone could still be so technologically illiterate. learn how to use a computer/mobile phone etc. my mum's nearly 80 and she is more techno-literate than Reacher! it's really beginning to stretch credulity and my patience.

overall a solid, (but apart from first few chapters), unexciting listen.

Standard Teacher story

This is an average Jack Teacher story. this time though he isn't bulletproof or knife proof.
His charm and presences gets him out of most trouble.
Worth a listen for every Reacher fan.

My Favourite Reacher story

Reacher grabs your attention with the "List" and keeps it with cleverness and guile. The finale is pure Reacher and Worth the listen in itself !
I think the Narrater should have been Reacher in the movie - even if he is too short (?) his voice is Reachers voice to me.
