Die Trying: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

die tryingThe Good: It’s a Jack Reacher novel. If MacGyver and Jack Bower could have a kid, it would be Reacher.

The Bad: I liked the first book, Killing Floor better. Lee Child is an amazing writer, but this wasn’t one of his best stories. For the first 75% of the book it seemed to me like Reacher was just along for the ride. “Come ON,” I kept thinking, “Kill somebody already!” Then he did, and I was happy again.

The Ugly: Unlike Killing Floor, I ended up skipping some of this book. It’s worth the read to stay with the series, just not my favorite by Child.

For a series that improves with the second book, try Bizarre Bible Stories! 2.
