I've read many books that I could not put down but this one is one of those I couldn't put down even if it made me late for my own wedding. It is that gripping and though I've read every prior book by Lee Child (with one exception a copy of which I am still waiting to acquire), and loved every one of them, I would have to say Worth Dying For is Child's best yet!
Another story set in a remote rural location in which almost everyone is against Reacher. But Child comes up with another unique and ingenious plot that kept me guessing till the end. We still haven't found the number of bad guys it takes to beat reach in a fight, but we learn that 3 ex football linemen from a major college aren't enough. I enjoy these books - can't help myself
I thought this was a satisfying continuation of the Reacher series. There were others I liked better, I think because they had better character development of the "supporting" characters. In this one, the bad guys seemed to be caricatures - they were just always bad with no redeeming qualities. The entire story was about how Reacher dealt with one bad guy after the other. It was still a "couldn't put it down" type of book for me, just not up to par with some of the earlier outings.
Fast-paced, super exciting chapter to chapter. It is far and away the best Jack Reacher book I've read (and I've read them all). Lot of violence though as Reacher clears out an evil group in a small Nebraska town. My hero!! If you like Child's books, you're going to love this one.
Another book of shear genius work from Lee Child. Jack Reacher can find the most trouble to get into but no one can clean up a town or county like he can either. We need a few Jack Reacher's sent to Washington, DC!! Maybe we could get our government cleaned up a bit. Very good book!
