Second Son: (Jack Reacher Short Story) (Kindle Sin&hellip by Lee Child
2 of 3 people found the following review helpful
I am a huge Reacher fan, and I loved this story as it shows him as a teenager... and the characteristics we all know and love are there to see. Reacher is only young, but he's got that same tough streak, that effortless cool, the reflex need for a brawl with the bad kids, the knack for attracting the girl. The story is also an interesting insight into his family life, and his early relationship with his brother. Lee Child tells a gripping tale. I can't wait for his new book 'The Affair', but I also hope there might be a bit more of teen Reacher in the future! Thanks Lee Child for another slick read.

I love rich, romantic, settings and this book captivated me for its beautiful descriptions of India - the sights, sounds, smells... and delicious spicy currys! I also loved the dual narrative - a mix of post-WWII and Victorian periods, and all centred around three very different women. The author has really done her research but the book never feels weighed down by that - just magical storytelling, a fascinating study of two important points in India's history, and above all, a tale of love. I'd say it is perfect for book groups, as I wanted to discuss it with people as soon as I finished! Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost in flares!, 22 Feb 2011
I loved this, because the authors have been really clever in their approach to a new Frost novel - they've stayed true to the Frost we know and love but they have also given the series an interesting new angle by taking it back to the 80's - this is Frost in flares and a brand new rain mac, before he was promoted, in the days when making a quick call meant finding a phone box first...
A very gripping, easy to read crime novel, and good fun too!
