I feel therefore qualified to make a reasonable assessment of these books. And that assessment is everyone should have 'Jack Reacher' in their lives.
He has helped me through 'lock down', taken me to impossible land, satisfied all outcomes wanted and given me all the mentioned hours of escapism and pleasure.
Mr Child incorporates most of the requirements that I love into his prose and writing. Short chapters, fluent prose, not too many big words that no one else understands. The character he has created in 'jack' is so unbelievable that he is believable in his superhuman way, a kind of genius from Mr child.
'Jack' in his 'Dirty Harry' way always gets the baddies.
If you are thinking about getting into these books and my humble opinion is worth anything, go for it.
I bought "Never Go Back" with "Killing Floor" at half price almost on a whim. I started with "Killing Floor" and am currently on "The Affair" having bought every one of the series and have pre ordered anything not yet in print.
Why? I found that the character was so believable AND readable plus in each of the books I found Lee Child had inserted and described in such absorbing detail, small almost irrelevancies that were as good to read as the main storyline that they became, not just fillers as other authors insert, but real and very readable. I can't praise the series enough - each and every book has really brought back my love of reading - "Thank you", Lee Child - brilliant!!
61 Hours has a great story and once again the location acts a major character in its own right (extreme cold this time in contrast to the extreme heat in Echo Burning).
I do, however, have a problem with the title and therefore the rather contrived plot device of a 61 hour countdown.
Not wishing to spoil it for anyone who has not read the book, the countdown is to a random event, not something pre-determined, not a grand plot with ticking bomb as it would be with a Bond baddie, but a completely arbitary happening that Jack himself instigates.
This makes for a rather disappointing conclusion. I felt a little conned, believing the countdown and indeed the title to be relevant.
What next..? "21 Minutes" as our hero waits for his next haircut? "7 Hours and 4 Minutes" until Jack wakes up after a good nights sleep?
Another great story, just don't get too hung up on the countdown.
