The 2nd in the Jack Reacher series-this one did not satisfy me as much as book 1.

Reacher is still roaming the country, and we find him in Chicago for this episode. While out on the street one day, he gallantly tries to aide a woman with a crutch and an arm load of dry cleaning. Unbeknownst to Reacher, this isn't just any woman and he suddenly finds himself caught up in her abduction.

Who and why? That you will have to discover on your own, dear reader. It got marked down for the uncalled for length. I think the story could have been told with a hundred or more less pages. Still, Reacher has grown on me and I will continue the series. In this time of lock-down, I am forced to raid my private library and I happen to have book 3 on hand. A year or two from now when my husband and daughter tell me I don't need anymore books, I can give them the evil eye and remind them of the year 2020. ( )

Maybe the book is just too old...
...but I got bored. I was struggling with some of the "speech effects" that the author used when the characters would talk, such as very frequently leaving off the first few words of a sentence. And some overexplaining. But when I got about 40% of the way through, and learned where the bad guys were from, that was the nail in the coffin for me. I won't tell you that detail, in case you want to read it, but maybe almost 20 years later that's just no longer a hot topic. ( )

Entertaining, fun but very flawed read. A thriller that keeps going even when you think it's about to wind down.

Minor complains: They're rarely considered "shells", unless you're talking about a shotgun. They are rounds, or bullets. What they go in them are not "clips," but magazines. Unless you're talking about a very old rifle, or a revolver that uses moon clips.
Major: A group of national socialist aren't going to be aiming to restore, or sing praise to the original, 1776, founding fathers-esque type of US representitive democracy. Those are 2 very different ideologies that Child mixed up quite a bit in creating the villains. ( )

Popcorn thriller. Very well done. ( )

Why I Picked It Up: I was book bullied into Killing Floor by a co-worker. She told me I’d love the Jack Reacher novels and she was right! I’m hoping to get caught up with the series and picked up book number two.

What I Lurved: Child can write a kick ass suspense novel that will grab you from page one. He holds no punches and at times can be gory. Reacher is still an awesome supersmart protagonist. The plot line is not impossible but highly improbable. I was able to suspend reality and enjoy Die Trying.

What I Could Have Lived Without: There really wasn’t anything that I could have done without. Child did a great job with Die Trying. If there are any complaints, it’s simply that there were some pretty grandiose plot points. But that’s why I read fiction. :) ( )
