Never Go Back (2013)

English
series
3.98 of 5 Votes: 7
review 1: I always look forward to the next time Jack Reacher wanders through my world. This is a pure Reacher, although perhaps he's starting to mellow just a tiny bit. Becoming a bit more thoughtful, and not punching out as many people as usual. This is also the first Reacher novel wh...

review 1: Another Jack Reacher novel, this one gets Reacher involved in a mystery when he is picked up hitch-hiking. Seems the people who picked him are more than they seem. The first half of the novel is brilliant. Five stars. Hooks you right off and is a gripping read. But it starts to...

review 1: Number 19 in the Reacher series and this one is not the best but I gave it 3 stars on principal because I enjoy the series so much. The format seemed different, less action, more introspection and explanation, which might be OK considering the "personal" feel. I must agree with s...
Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance (2012)

review 1: Good concept here, with twist in the tale "vengeance" short stories collated by Mr Reacher, Lee Child. Some of the stories are by well known writers like Karin Slaughter, Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane and Child himself. Most of the others were chosen by a competition. The end r...

review 1: I rated this book four stars because I found it very entertaining. I took away one star because I feel that the book is falsely advertised. One would expect a book with "mystery stories" in the title to be comprised solely of mystery stories. In my estimation, more than half of t...
James Penney's New Identity/Guy Walks Into a Bar (Storycuts) (2011)
language
English

review 1: I actually read these separately. James Penney I found in the Thriller anthology. Guy Walks I read in the NY Times article, June 6, 2009. I preferred the James Penney story because it was longer, it had more characterization, and it challenged me to think about the nuances of ...

review 1: This is the first in this series I've read. Though I have seen the Tom Cruise film, which had its good points but on the whole was nothing to write home about.The protagonist is pretty ridiculous, a hulking male Mary-Sue who's hyper-independent, unbeatable in a fight, and always ...
Jack Reacher's Rules (2012)
language
English
3.17 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I love this book. It's as tongue - in -cheek as Jack Reacher is. It's a compilation of his philosophy of life, bits of advice, notes about stealthily approaching the bad guys, and his likes and dislikes. I especially liked his rules about coffee, which any fan knows is a staple o...

review 1: I had forgotten all about this novella! Great read, great taste of Jack Reacher! Wish I could give 5 stars, but I'm not a big fan of novellas. What I can say about this book is that I enjoyed it more than his latest book "Personal".Jack finds himself in New York City - he's only...

review 1: JAMES PENNEY... This was the better of the two short stories. Love the intrigue of the Penney character and how Child left him out of original Reacher book. Also love how Reacher's character here was so on-point with how his moral code is: Screw the law, do what's right. I am hop...

Not a Drill (2014)

review 1: I was somewhat indifferent after reading this short story. I understood it to be a flashback, but was left wondering how it would play into the next full-length novel (which, of course, was eventually answered in said novel).It seemed more plodding than most Reacher stories, with...
