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'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.

Very well written book. My favorite Jack Reacher book. Highly recommended.

I hate it when I come to the end of a Jack Reacher book. This is, without a doubt, my favorite book series ever. Jack is a wild ride through every page. Jack is 65″, 250 lbs., has a 50″ chest and wears a 3XLT coat. Jack spent 13 years in the Army and has no family. He leads a wanderers life and has no home not even a drivers license. He is total BA yet has a heart of gold (just dont tell anyone). I found this 15th book in the series to be especially fantastic. The story line of this series by Lee Child never slows down. This series, and this latest installment, are non-stop action from page one. When I finished his last book, 61 Hours, I was a bit uncertain as to what had happened to Jack. It will be a sad day when Mr. Child stops penning this series. Write faster Lee Childs because I need a dose of Jack at least every quarter!(less)
