‘Better Characterisation Than Movie’
There is more visibility and development of character in the first 50 pages of this book than in the two Jack Reacher movies combined.
I was loaned this book but I was suspicious of it because I didn’t really like the first Jack Reacher movie. I read it anyway. It’s much better than the movie. (This is a Jack Reacher book, but it’s not the basis of either of the movies.) Jack Reacher feels like an actual person in this book, rather than the one-dimensional portrayal he gets in the movies.
The plot is obvious in parts, some of the ooh-why-does-that-happen are not difficult to figure out, and if you’re fond of crime books you’ll see the ending a mile off, but it was still fun to read.
