Although full of “Reacherisms” like violence, weapons and all sorts of movement, there was something missing from Blue Moon that other Reacher books had. Maybe it was the characters - or not. Can’t put a finger on it as it was over before I knew it.
Not one of his best.
His earlier plots had some believability. Not in this one. Seems like a made for Tom cruise movie. I may have overrated it with 2 stars.
Same formula, same fantastic read. I’ve read them all and this one keeps the road trip alive. I read some bad reviews store buying and those were wrong in my opinion. A great week of reading for me while traveling...pure pleasure. Thank you Mr. Child.
I have devoured all of Lee Child’s books and have never been disappointed until this one. It seemed to drag on forever . . driving around the same street corners over and over . . too many killings like never before . . and the repetitive characters . . I had to make myself finish it.
This book read like Lee Child was in a hurry to get it to the publisher for a deadline. Reacher didn’t seem like himself, killing almost everyone. Boring, without plot development in terms of the original plot to recover money lost to a tech guy. Should have stuck to the original plot.
I also wonder why Reacher didn’t verify that the daughter was really sick. It’d have been a better story if Reacher had investigated who was taking the money for the daughter’s medical treatment.
The very first Reacher book I won’t finish and I’ve read them all. They were all good to great until this one. It’s truly awful. I can’t believe Lee Child wrote it. Next.
I have read the entire series and they used to be good/great. I expect a “story” and am willing to allow for semi-unbelievable. But this book is horrendous. It is as if the author took a formula for beginning, middle and end and then forced a crappy story into it. Really. Do not spend money on this book.
