by Lee Child, read by Dick Hill, 2009, Random House Audio, New York
I took this out from the library and listened to it on the way to Florida from Rhode Island. The coolest thing about it was that, after driving for three days, as I arrived in the driveway at our place in Florida and was just about to turn off the car, the book ended. How can I time it any better than that?
Apart from the timing, the book was reasonably good. I liked the characters and the plot was okay. There was quite a bit of moving around in New York City and sometimes I wish I had had a subway or street map to follow Reacher’s travels from place to place. Also, the reader was quite good.
One of things I noticed as I listened to the book is that I didn’t detect one bit of foul language. It is interesting that this is something that one notices in this day and age. It was very refreshing and I commend Lee Child for writing without all the trash language that appears in other books.
It was perhaps not the greatest literature on earth but it sure made my trip a lot more enjoyable.
