The Good: Unlike the rest of the reading world, I’m new to Reacher. I hear the books improve the more you read. Not that you could prove that by this one.
The Bad: A few things here – #3 SPOILER ALERT! Skip it if you need to as it gives something away.
1 – The story took a long time to get going.
2 – Reacher seemed more like a lucky creep than a cool, wise, good-guy.
3 – In the end, it reminded me of the old Saturday Morning Cartoons – unbelievable. Muscles that stop bullets? Gag me.
The Ugly: Three books into the series and I’m done with Reacher. I know the books are supposed to improve, but this one isn’t nearly as good as the first two, and I just can’t get behind a cradle-steeling, bullet-stopping-pectoral-muscle creep saving the day. I miss underdog.
