1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn yawn, 4 Feb. 2014
I was surprised this book has got so many good reviews, because I just don't Get the appeal of the Jack Reacher character.
I have read three or four of them now, only the first one with any enthusiasm.
There is no character development, no statements about life, or America, no interior monologue, just this happened, that happened, this happened, yawn yawn yawn...
I found the twist in the plot towards the end so implausible it undermined the whole plot for me.
I grant that Lee Child knows how to structure the plot round building tension but I think the plot suffers from this as the story does not stack up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 27 Mar. 2012
This review is from: AfroCubism (Audio CD)
I love the mix of the stringed instruments, the percussive Cuban style with the rolling Mali-an sounds, and the mix of the Cuban Sonero singing style with the solo African calling voice. I found the whole CD impossible to resist - Wonderful, wonderful stuff!
