A nice first book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. The book was entertaining and Jack's character is easy to like and connect with. There were however several critical flaws in the story line and plot, which made some of the plot twists unrealistic and very sketchy. As a first book, this can be understandable and maybe common. Will give Jack Reacher another try. Audiobook narration however was often painful to hear, especially when narrating the female voices like Officer Roscoe and others. It would clearly have been better or easier to have a few different narrators for the male and female parts.
great book while driving 16 hrs
this was a great first book for child. he won an award for best first novel and it turned out to be his first reacher book. this is the second time I listened to killing floor. it was good the time, it was great the second. I have read six reacher books, I will be reading the rest
Very good book! I enjoyed it a great deal. Narrator is very talented. I did think his voice sounded a little old.
I needed a bit of time to get into the story - my fault, I guess, as the narration started AFTER Reacher had been released from jail. I did get caught up and into the suspense. A thrilling, suspenseful storyline. A bit too much casual killing, however for my take - hence four stars. I am looking forward to the second book in the series.
It was a good read. Some spots seem to drag a bit. I liked it though.
One of the earliest Reacher books after stating on his later books. Discovered a little bit about his family… brother Joe. As always, Dick Hill is fabulous as narrator!
Absolutely loved it! Reacher is addicting for sure. Dick hill is the best voice for this series, I'm absolutely captivated by Reacher and Dick Hills voice!! can't wait to listen to all of them.
Good story and plot for a late 90s book. The pace of the story was good and I didn’t find myself stuck in low-points. The narrator, for me, sucked some of the life of the story away. I was not able to envision some of the characters’ having the voice that the narrator gave them; especially the female voices.
The narrator was a little fast in speaking. but a good jack reacher book
The story was good but the narration was so dull it did not capture our attention. A waste of time and resources.
great series to pass the time as an over the road truck driver
Loved this book.
This was a very good book. Not like Tom Cruise movies but bing an ex army soldier. I could understand the training of his character. It was very entertaining . I loved the twist and turns that Lee Child used in the book.
Great book. Suspense is an understatement!
Love Jack Reacher series
Loved this book. Did take a minute to warm up to it, but once I did I? couldn’t stop listening and reading along! Can’t wait to pick up the next book!
This book made me think I was reading a fantasy novel for men. Seemed a bit on the ridiculous side to me and quite pompous. Narrator was paired well to it. Quite dramatic and pompous narration.
Good book, enjoyed and entertaining . Great first book????
I really enjoyed this book. I have read several of the Jack Reacher books and love his character. Lee Child gives him life, personality and believability. I didn't realize it was Mr. Child's first Reacher book, but I don't care about that. I read a book when presented with the opportunity. I, too, have a serious problem with the narrator. His voice, while giving very good narration, sounded old. This made it difficult to listen to. It's just like the Jack Reacher movie. A 6'4" man being played by one barely over 5'. I won't even go see the movie. Mr. Child, please put more thought into the people who portray this very lifelike character of yours.
Excellent first novel I can't wait to read the next one!
Lee Child's Jack Reacher is always a good read. Some stories, however, are better than others , i.e., the difference from solid B to A+. The Killing Floor was good (a B+ in my mind). Itt did drag at times. I would like it to have been a tighter story. Throughout, however, there were plenty of Jack Reacher comments that stood out and which makes him a special read .
I live from one Jack Reacher novel to the next. He is my favorite by far. This one didn't let me down. It's a page turner.
Good book. Love dick hill !!!!! Love the reacher series!!!!!
