Just got around to reading 'Never Go Back' because I wanted to read it before I saw the movie and now the movie is out of all the theaters around me.
I'm not sure I would have picked Never Go Back as the book to follow up Jack Reacher, which was based on 'One Shot.'

Why is the latest book called "Make Me"? Just wondering because the phrase used to be like a dare - like "I dare you to make me" etc, etc.
I thought the book was good for the first 3/4 and then it got really dark and started to turn me off. But it left off on a note that left readers wondering about Reacher's physical state in the next book.

I am not sure why these books are so long. They are basically thrillers but the long descriptions bog down the pacing. Some of them are around 500 pages which to me is what a historical novel is, not a contemporary thriller. I find myself skipping through a lot.
I read all but the two latest and thought Gone Tomorrow, 61 Hours, The Hard Way and One Shot were the best.

No Brad Thor or Vince Flynn but okay for a fast read even with the bad geography and descriptions that go on too long. Echo Burning and Bad Luck and Trouble are the worst. 61 Hours and One Shot the best.

I wish the Jack Reacher movie would be a series but I think Tom Cruise is doing another Mission Impossible movie? Jack Reacher is one of my three favorite "mystery men" the others being Victor Cardenas and Julian Kestrel.

I actually liked the movie Jack Reacher and wonder if it is meant to be the first is a series?

Very disappointed that a sticker signed by Lee Child can be had on the web and then stuck into any Lee Child first edition and placed for sale on line as a signed first edition. Only discovered by reading the sale description very carefully.

Paula, the book you're looking for is Gone Tomorrow

I saw an excerpt from Lee Childs on a Reacher novel, but don't remember the name of the novel. In the story, he is sitting on a subway and sees across from him a woman who looks very nervous. Taking in all the information he can get by checking her over visually, he decides she has a bomb and is going to blow up the subway line. Can anyone tell me the name of the book?
