Reacher is digging pools in Key West, when strangers show up looking for him. As some other reviewers have pointe I'm reading the Reacher series in order from 1 to whatever and this is my third. The plot was flat and offered no twists or turns for quite a lengthy book. Jack is approached by a stranger asking if knows a Jack Reacher. The characters are unbelievable, clichéd, and much of the dialogue is laughably dumb. Say what you will about Robert B. Reacher knows there's more going on than meets the eye due to the multiple attacks of violence upon his person and Jodie's.
There are over 33,000 reviews of this book on GoodReads, and and the average rating is 4. The first Jack Reacher movie, based on the novel One Shot and starring Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike, was released in December 2012. The climactic 150 pages are pretty good, but it takes too long to get there. Bring on the next, but maybe in a few weeks eh??? The climactic 150 pages are pretty good, but it takes too long to get there. I had to finish, I had to get to the center of the mystery, and so I read it in something like three days.
My husband loves Jack Reacher. Bare in mind that the book is nearly 20 years old now and was probably trend setting back then. Never heard of any such person. On the positive side, I read it pretty quickly and was just interested enough in the story that I didn't quit and throw it back on the shelf. It had a big door painted shiny black and oak floors the colour of honey. He is tall and slim, despite an appalling diet and a refusal to exercise.
I could go on and on, but I won't. This addictive eBook bundle features the six Reacher adventures leading up to Make Me, along with four bonus prequel shorts. Instead of the brilliant and brave investigator hero from the first two novels, the Reacher of Tripwire came across as a bit of an oafish rube. A more realistic book, in comparison to all the very unrealistic things he does in this series. I have found myself running hot and cold in the Reacher series. The first two Reacher books both have slam-bang openings that carry the reader through some of the more boring bits, but this one doesn't, which makes all the repeated verbs and interminably long descriptions of people doing things harder to get through.
Also the actions of the villain are more than a little far fetched and his victims, in the book, are very compliant. One of the cookies we use is critical for certain aspects of the site to operate and has already been set. Through no fault of his own, and without looking for trouble, Reacher gets in trouble. This happened over and over again and probably added a good 100 pages to the book. Very little wear and tear.

Tripwire Chronologically Book 10 3 Pages 343 Original release United States: June 28, 1999 United Kingdom: April 15, 1999 Written by Artwork by Previous Next Tripwire is the third book in the written by. The author did it to me again! The villain in Tripwire is an especially nasty and unlikeable cretin and we get to see some military intrigue and some Vietnam secrets revealed. Reacher has no interest in disrupting his quiet routine, but when a private investigator comes around looking for him it kicks off a chain of events which eventually lead Reacher into digging up the secrets of a murderous man in New York City with a dark history that leads back to the Vietnam War. Pure entertainment of the shallowest kind.
Create a sadistic bastard as an antagonist. And a lot older than the last time he saw her. But someone has sent a private detective to seek him out. At one stage he begs someone for help. The answers lead Reacher on a cold trail back to New York, to the tenuous confidence of an alluring woman, and the dangerous corners of his own past.
Tony is his receptionist and obviously knee-deep in the important aspects of Hobie's life. There he meets up with the deceased's daughter who he hasn't seen for 15 years. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. Ο σκληροτράχηλος, μοναχικός και περιπλανώμενος Τζακ Ρίτσερ βρίσκεται στο Κ Τον Οκτώβριο του 2015 ήταν η τελευταία φορά που διάβασα βιβλίο του Λι Τσάιλντ με πρωταγωνιστή τον γαμάτο Τζακ Ρίτσερ και η αλήθεια είναι ότι μου έλειψε πάρα πολύ ο άτιμος. I had to finish, I had to get to the center of the mystery, and so I read it in something like three days. Lee spends his spare time reading, listening to music, and watching the Yankees, Aston Villa, or Marseilles soccer.
Znamo o kakvoj se literaturi radi, skoro pa svemogući junak upada u razne probleme iz kojih se uvijek izvuče manje ili više izbubetan. Jack is approached by a stranger asking if knows a Jack Reacher. Things starts falling into place, Garber was investigating something and Jack takes it upon himself to finish his work - with the help of Garber's daughter Jodie Garber and soon to be love interest. It's too bad that his wife Marilyn wasn't in charge. Ποια είναι η κυρία και γιατί τον ψάχνει; Ο Κοστέλο θα δολοφονηθεί και ο Ρίτσερ θα βρεθεί μπλεγμένος σε μια περίεργη και βρόμικη ιστορία, μ'έναν παρανοϊκό και επικίνδυνο άνθρωπο, τον Χόμπι τον Γάντζο, να τον έχει βάλει στο μάτι και να θέλει να τον ξεπαστρέψει, πριν βγουν στην φορά τα μυστικά του και πριν ο Ρίτσερ χαλάσει τα σχέδια του.
So why continue with the series? Child provides a good bit of backstory on Reacher and his relationship to the general and Jodie; with Jodie's thoughts about Reacher while we careen around corners and bash through doors on their hunt for the truth to save Jodie's life and bring peace to a patriotic, yet unhappy old couple. This may be entertaining for others, but I've owned the I was looking forward to trying these books--my dad loves them and when this really nice gentleman at my work brought me a bag of books with this one in it it seemed like a good enough impetus to try one. The climax is badly overwritten. Definitely worth a second read. Each book needs editing to remove about 100 or so pages. Are these two, irritating little words there to ensure we know that this isn't one of those steaks that hangs off both sides of the plate, but not at the same time, because it has legs and walks back and forth? Not much action scenes in this one but it was filled with suspense and intriguing investigations with a very well executed plot twist. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill.
