Never Go Back (Jack Reacher 18)
Never Go Back (Jack Reacher 18)
by Lee Child
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack is back!, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lee Child delivers yet again, a well plotted book where everything adds up but not too obviously, the relationship between the main characters is realistic and well drawn, the introduction of the possiblity of children gives Jack some more emotional depth and the clever escapes and devastating fight scenes just keep on coming. Classic Reacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars collection of essays, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting collection of essays, a bit dry in places and some of the people are very obscure but it was an interesting read, more for dipping in and out of than a straight read through.

this looks great on the wall, keeps good time. It is easy to hang and not too heavy so no worries about damage to plaster. The distressed wood looks good and it has been admired for its unusual shape and styling.

5.0 out of 5 stars laughed out loud!, 10 Oct 2012
This review is from: Care of Wooden Floors (Paperback)
beautifully paced writing, the tension builds slowly until in the final crisis the reader is as worried about the floor as the hero!!! Loved the descriptions and the clever use of language, the notes were like little characters popping up everywhere as were the cats and their malignant footprints. I found myself reading on the edge of my seat and also laughing out loud in places. The character of Oskar becomes progressively more complicated as his many facets are revealed and the denouement is perfect. A wonderful book, will be watching for more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book!!, 15 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Wind on the Moon (Paperback)
what a fabulous book this is, I read it when I was a child and loved it. I bought the book again this year to read to my eight year old daughter and was worried I might not find it so magical as an adult. It is still a beautiful story, imaginative and funny and sad. The characters of Dinah and Dorinda and their various friends are so well drawn, especially the brave and beautiful golden puma and the dignified silver falcon. If you have children read this book to them and they will love it and so will you! The chapters are just the right length for a bedtime story and the characters give lots of opportunities to "do" voices. We laughed and cried together as we read this book and I am sure we have made some memories which will last for a long time to come.
