    Dear god, the sentences get shorter and shorter as this series goes on, and Reacher getsandtremendous I love the way he tells us so much with so little to go on, and the way that he s always one step ahead and the reader loves it well, I do I like the author s style but I can imagine it can annoy but I fell in love with Reacher when he was younger and sassier weren t we all and have remained faithful eevr since Some of the other books have been poor on plot, but this one Dear god, the sentences get shorter and shorter as this series goes on, and Reacher getsandtremendous I love the way he tells us so much with so little to go on, and the way that he s always one step ahead and the reader loves it well, I do I like the author s style but I can imagine it can annoy but I fell in love with Reacher when he was younger and sassier weren t we all and have remained faithful eevr since Some of the other books have been poor on plot, but this one s good though I think the author s chickening out of anything too gory or heart breaking for the reader as time goes on I like the plots where Reacher has to contend with a hostile character, not just a criminal setting

    Probably one of the best of the Reacher series I ve read so far They tend to in my opinion of course run hot and cold I have several on my currently reading shelf right now that I ve completed but simply haven t gotten around to reviewing..yet.Here while Reacher as opposed to Jack Everyone simply calls called him Reacher, even his parents is drawn into a murderous situation when it comes to his attention that someone is killing off his old team from Army Special Investigations It seems Probably one of the best of the Reacher series I ve read so far They tend to in my opinion of course run hot and cold I have several on my currently reading shelf right now that I ve completed but simply haven t gotten around to reviewing..yet.Here while Reacher as opposed to Jack Everyone simply calls called him Reacher, even his parents is drawn into a murderous situation when it comes to his attention that someone is killing off his old team from Army Special Investigations It seems someone had been contacting them with pleas for help as from another one of the team members Jack would also have been sent a sucker plea except no one can ever find him.Aside from the long running problems of the series Jack Reacher is huge well over 6 feet and hitch hikes looking like a giant homeless guy Dirty clothes he wears until he throws them away and replaces them, unshaven and unbathed until he stays in a motel room again and puts on his new clothes from Dollar General, Army Surplus or wherever The book gives us a look at the interaction of Reacher and his team, where they have all ended up and so on.So, good action, nice story and no bogging down with Child s personal views onwell everything So, pretty good book Enjoy

    You don t mess with the special investigatorsand you sure as hell don t step on Reacher s toothbrush.This is Lee Child s 11th Reacher thriller I ve read them all, and I believe it is fair to say, that no other writer has captivated this reader like Mr Child What is it about Reacher In a class by himself Of course There re are lots of hard as nails protagonists out there, from Mike Hammer to Travis McGee to Harry Bosch, but for me, Jack Reacher is not only the toughest, but also my favor You don t mess with the special investigatorsand you sure as hell don t step on Reacher s toothbrush.This is Lee Child s 11th Reacher thriller I ve read them all, and I believe it is fair to say, that no other writer has captivated this reader like Mr Child What is it about Reacher In a class by himself Of course There re are lots of hard as nails protagonists out there, from Mike Hammer to Travis McGee to Harry Bosch, but for me, Jack Reacher is not only the toughest, but also my favorite.The New York Times claims that Lee Child is The best thriller writer of the moment I think this is true, but an understatement Who is a better thriller writer than Child As for Bad Luck and Trouble, I particularly liked knowing a bitabout his old elite MP military unit Instead of utilizing a prequel, the time frame is the present Someone has been killing off members of his old unit After the army, they all had gone on to new careers.As a writer myself, I wondered if the men and women of his elite unit had been created in the past, or came phoenix like out of the ashes of Lee Child s imagination as he wrote the book Doesn t really matter though, does it Child certainly makes it seem like the eight members of the unit already existed long before Killing Floor, which was Child s first Reacher novel, and where this reader feels the new Reacher reader should start See my review of Killing Floor on .His book The Enemy, although chronologically the first, was about when he was a major in the army It brought in his brother and his mother, but was maybe my least favorite Why is it my least favorite It wasn t the Reacher we now know and love, but did offer insight into how he got that way.In Bad Luck he had left behind the army years ago, had transitioned from Major Jack Reacher to the man we now know, but the guys and girls in his unit got to see the man not as he used to be, their commander, a major in the army, but the man whose possessions now amounted to a folding toothbrush, a passport, the clothes on his back, and a ATM card While the rest of the gang had gone on to various degrees of fame, fortune and failure, Reacher had remained the same A loner, a drifter, truly leaving do trail I don t know why I m always surprised when he puts the 9mm up to the guy s head and pulls the trigger, or how he hears the unmistakable sound of a magazine clicking home This one was high on mystery, high on thrills and suspense Highly recommended

    Bad Luck and Trouble might be one one of my favourite Reacher stories so far However, I do write my reviews or in the case of this series my random thoughts right after finishing a book so I am still on a high after finishing this one I think I enjoyed it because we see Reacher working with his old army pals, and the return of Neagley who I also love I felt we sawdepth to Reacher here, and it s always ainteresting dynamic seeing him with people from his past as opposed to new pe Bad Luck and Trouble might be one one of my favourite Reacher stories so far However, I do write my reviews or in the case of this series my random thoughts right after finishing a book so I am still on a high after finishing this one I think I enjoyed it because we see Reacher working with his old army pals, and the return of Neagley who I also love I felt we sawdepth to Reacher here, and it s always ainteresting dynamic seeing him with people from his past as opposed to new people he has just met in the story There s lots of emotion infused throughout the writing here, and characterisation is strong throughout I felt that the plot was interesting and thought provoking with enough to keep me eager to turn the pages however it was Reacher and the characters he was on this journey with that kept me gripped throughout I actually finished this book with a bit of a lump in my throat I don t know why, I spent two days with these characters and I guess I just didn t want to leave them behind Only two other series of books has this happened in, the ending of every Harry Bosch novel and Harry Potter when he returns home for the summer and waves everyone goodbye This to me is a sign of how much I love this series and how much I love Reacher Just amazing
