Well what can I say?
This is where it all starts and we find out what pushed Reacher over the edge, which was a bit of a surprise in itself coming along at this late stage in the list of Lee Child books.
As always, Reacher takes you along the road with him feeling the rough and tumble of his trials and tribulations on how to get to get to the bottom of the latest wrong doing. His gut instincts are still there and of course, he always has to go in feet first. No half measures with Jack Reacher!
And that’s the reason we all love him.
This was an interesting read for me but sadly spoiled a little by the fact I couldn’t read as often or as much as I would have like to in one go. (My reading time is limited depending on time out of work and how often I get time to sit outside in the sun). In fact, I’m now seriously considering the Kindle Paperwhite which will hopefully allow me to read more often and inside….
So for all Reacher fans – go on, read it…. You know you want to!
I loved it – but then, it’s “Reacher”. Why wouldn’t I?
I’ve been living in Cyprus for over 8 years now and so jumped at the chance to have a read of this book.
I live in Limassol so this was the first area of the book I looked at and I’ve found a number of places that are on my list of things to do when the next public holiday makes an appearance. It’s just around the corner so I will be making plans soon.
For me, I found it’s not the type of book I could just pick up and work my way through it as it felt a little too “listy” for my taste but if you know you’re going to a particular part of Cyprus or have an interest in just one area then it’s a great help and full of information. There are links to various websites too so you can always keep up to date with any recent changes, revised details, opening times etc. Very easy to use the links if you have WiFi and an eBook Reader device.
Certainly, when we’re planning to have a couple of days in one of the different parts of the island I will be taking my Kindle along with me and of course, 250 Things to Do in Cyprus on a Sunny Day!
Thanks to Chris for bringing this book to my attention.
Has it been hacked?
This is what I and other people are seeing if we try to log on today:
Well, I’ve sent them a message on Facebook and via their Twitter account but they’re still happily posting away….
They do say “ignorance is bliss” though!
Let’s hope they sort it out soon….
But apparently, they’re not the only ones: Yeapit, Sigmalive, philenews and Stockwatch all report the same problem.
I loved this book right from the start particularly as the tension was there immediately you started reading…. Will she or won’t she blow the train to smithereens?
The storyline continued at a fast pace all the way through with twists and turns along the way a la Lee Child fashion.
Reacher was his usual amazing self, perceptive without giving the game away but with the odd mistake along the way which he usually ends up kicking himself for.
Two bloodthirsty female killers totally lacking in emotion made it hard to put down.
One of my fastest Kindle reads!
I only get to read by the pool or the beach maybe a couple of times a week for an hour or so but this one had me sitting outside on our kitchen terrace too, frantically clicking the Kindle page turn button!
Still got some more Jack Reacher novels to work my way through but what happens when I get to the end? It’s gonna be a very sad day
