3.0 out of 5 stars Massacre mayhem or gory glory?, 18 Oct 2011
This review is from: Killing Floor: (Jack Reacher 1) (Paperback)
Too many nasties, far too much evil thought displayed by both baddies and supposed good guy, an anti-hero who kills first, in the back and is quite an odd character.

This is the second Jack Reacher story I've read and the bloodiest - I lost count of the dead bodies. The horrible tortures some of the baddies put into use - unthinkable.

Although I applaud Lee Childs writing ability - he's a far better writer than the other horror thriller hacks - and it's certainly a page turner, I found it too gruesome for words. I couldn't put the book down until I reached the end - four hours of reading and entering another, chilling dimension. Probably men love reading this stuff.

I preferred the other Jack Reacher yarn, set in New York, which opens on a subway train and as it stops at each station and then continues on, with his repeated, hypnotic - No one got on, no one got off - building the tension and sounding like the train tracks -no one got on, no one got off.
