Hopefully it's just me. - Since watching the Reacher movie I've read all the books and usually have had a hard time putting them down. This one was the opposite. - I struggled after the first chapter. After perhaps four attempts I got a third of the way through before skipping to the end to see if it was an end worth reading to. For me it wasn't. - I usually pre-order the books. I guess this time I'll wait for the reviews.
