Unpredictable, which causes suspense.....but due to lots of far fetched circumstances and outcomes, which causes a sense of deflation. Rather than the reader saying, "Wow! Cool!" it's more like, "Are you kidding me???" Like Holly and Reacher making out beside a mutilated corpse. Ya. Right. I like books I will probably read a second time or more. Not so with this one. It was fine the first time around but I wouldn't read it again.

A little slow at the start, then things begin to heat up...both for the plot and for Reacher! How is it the guy never gets the girl in the end??? But then again, he is.... Jack Reacher.

What else can I say? Jack Reacher is my kind of hero. Nobody stands in his way. He does as he wishes and eliminates anyone who deserves to be eliminated. A great read for most.

Format: Paperback
Jack Reacher is walking down a street in Chicago when he sees a woman leaving a dry cleaner, struggling with her crutches and hangers of clothes. When Holly Johnson stumbles, Jack assists her until three armed men surround him and Holly, and then force them into a vehicle. The pair are quickly transferred into the back of a truck, handcuffed together, and so begins a long and increasingly disturbing journey.

Die Trying is the second in this popular series and equally well written. Although the setting is different, there are other similar plot points such as crazy bad guys (in this case militia) who’ve staked out their land to control their world and everyone in it with brutal force. Also similar to the first novel, Reacher finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet risking his life to help the woman he’s attracted to.

Despite the repetition, I marveled at Lee Child’s clear and edgy detail. One scene in particular, had me cringing as Reacher becomes wedged within a tiny space inside a mountain. Given that Reacher spends a lot of time locked up and trying to get his bearings, all the detail keeps the pace fairly slow. It works, however, because it not only shows Reacher’s growing angst through the interminably long wait to get himself and Holly out of this mess, but it builds suspense. I’m looking forward to see what happens in the next installment.

Really unhappy with ordering process. Tries to have me accept another sample etc. does not! make payment functional. I am well educated and literate at least to the mean. I, nevertheless, am unable to unscramble the puzzle presented by your billing as presented. Unfortunately, this does mean I am unable to pay you for books I would like to order (I am sure this would be your preference). If I am unable to work through the difficulty I will find other, more "user friendly" resources. Thank you for the opportunity to express my unhappiness and hopefully to have assistance and resolution to this rather annoying situation. K Kristianson

I liked this book for the same reasons I have liked the others I have read in this series...the suspense, the plot twists and turns, the subtle clues presented during the story.

I've read all of his novels & anxiously awaiting his next one The whole Jack Reacher series is great, I'd recommend them all. The only problem is the movie. Jack Reacher is 6' 5" 230 lbs. Tom Cruise is 5' & maybe 150 lbs, Jack Reacher should be Dwayne Johnson instead,
