‘The Visitor’ by Lee Child

‘Better Characterisation Than Movie’

Lee Child

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.
