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!

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.

Being a Jack Reacher fan this one was a disappointment to me. The storyline got lost or sidetracked from pages and pages of just descriptions. You can have an auto race or a gun fight but you don't need 15 pages to describe one event, by the time page after page of descriptions I found myself scanning and zipping through it trying to pick up the main storyline and keeping hold of it and I couldn't do it, hoping next espisode in the Jack Reacher series will be much better than 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!

Another excellent Reacher book...don't miss this one!

Worth Dying For finds our battered hero hiding in plain sight in a tiny Nebraska town, trying to recover from the catastrophe he left behind in South Dakota (no spoilers here, but readers are still arguing over 61 Hours's cliffhanger ending). Fans rarely see such a physically vulnerable Reacher (in the first part of the book he is barely able to lift his arms) but it just adds to the fist-pumping satisfaction of seeing our weary good guy take on the small-town baddies.
