    1. People were depending on me. I had been beaten many times. But I had never just quit. Not once. Not ever.This book! OMG, my heart is still beating so fast as though it's going to jump out of my chest! What an adrenaline-pumping ride!Ok, take a deep breathAlright, I will keep this short as I know that there's no way I can write this review without going into detail, in which will ultimately give the story all away. So, no spoilers here.Once again, Lee Child dazzles me with this top-notch story, f [...]


    2. This is the first Jack Reacher book I’ve read. Maybe I should have started with the first one in the series, but I picked up this one used. For fifty cents. Reading some of the comments about the varied quality of the Reacher series, I was probably better off starting with this one.The tricksy misdirection at the beginning of the book aside, this was a decent read. Reacher, reminded me of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser, big, tough, smart, can handle himself in any situation. But he’s not a pr [...]


    3. I am totally loving this series. (Although I think it must be best NOT to read them back to back because then the formula wears through.) This is a good one -- tense, claustrophobic, and non-stop action. Two quibbles -- the romance between Reacher and Duffy seemsunmotivated. Like the author says to himself, "And this is the place where I start the romance," and proceeded to have Reacher make out with the nearest available female character. Also, the last 20 percent of the novel seems unduly long [...]



    4. This bad-ass walks around with an anaconda in his pants (apparently, that's a type of revolver but it's still pretty impressive)He has an AOL device hidden in his shoe. He says nothing a lot. So does everyone else in this novel. I'm not cut out for crime fiction. It bugs me.


    5. Gigantic hobo detective Jack Reacher once again wanders into more trouble than any happy-go-lucky wanderer would reasonably expect. This time, after encountering a ghost from his past, a man named Quinn who should be dead, Reacher gets involved in an undercover DEA operation to take the man and his smuggling operation down. Reacher poses as a gun-for-hire in order to infiltrate Quinn's operation. The DEA wants him to go in and recover an agent who went missing and is presumably held captive. Rea [...]


    6. I would have to rank this as one of my favourite Lee Child books, even if I thoughs the start was dubious. For the first chapter or two, I worried this might even be a Reacher novel of a standard to rival the disaster that was Nothing to Lose. Then, of course, we got a little farther into the book and I was able to reassure myself that no book could be as bad as Nothing to Lose. I think if Lee Child were to write another book as bad as Nothing to Lose, I'd have to give up on him. Anyway, Persuad [...]


    7. An awesome Novel.My RATING: 4.4/5The Novel is in full throttle. The flashback story line is awesome and the twist in the flashback is great. The novel is fun and intriguing. Back to awesomeness !See u guys at next, Thank you.


    8. As always Lee Child is an exceptional writer. I think this one is going to be tabbed a favorite of mine. Reacher has met his match with the character, Paulie, who is just a lowly bodyguard, or so it seems. Finally, my hero (Reacher) isn't so tough and perfect. I love the thinking process in the writing as Reacher tries to solve yet another mystery, but this time, he's a bit slower figuring out the clues. There was more suspense and a little more wit, I had to laugh at the reasoning behind tippin [...]


    9. My name is James, and it's been seven months since my last Jack Reacher. The seventh in the series, Persuader should follow the same, increasingly predictable formula. Except, something feels wrong; it doesn't feel like Reacher – from the unusual eagerness to get involved, and the carrying of two guns, to the shooting of a cop. These things are totally out of character for the man we've spent six novels getting to barely know. Then I realised, the biggest thing that feels wrong about this Reac [...]


    10. A 4 star read - but I just had to throw in another star for such a great series - and of course- a great character!!! I know I'm behind in this series- I started with book 1 and I am reading them all in order- looking forward to book number 8 !!


    11. I thought Killing Floor was a fun novel that showed a lot of promise. Its sequel, Die Trying, had very genuinely good shit but also bloated horribly and killed the momentum with the FBI agent plotline. Tripwire had a shamefully obvious mystery and a glacial plot with flashes of true suspense. So I was not really jazzed on the Reacher series. But ever since I started them, I liked Child's overall style, pacing, and prose. But I gotta admit, when I saw Make Me on the shelf, I thought to myself Tha [...]


    12. I'm going to add the same review for all of the Reacher series, so if you've read this one, you've read 'em all. If you feel a certain affinity for the lone hero, a man of principle, of unwavering knowledge and assent as to his own actions, than Jack Reacher's your kinda guy. Lee Child has created an unforgettable and unique character in his creation of Jack Reacher. Jack seems to implicitly understand that he is a unique animal/human running around on this planet and that in spite of social con [...]


    13. Reacher fights a man the size of Texas, and fires shotguns that could blow a drug tunnel to Mexico. What more can you ask for?


    14. 2 stars for the back story. 4 stars for the rest. Another fun tough guy Reacher story. Several scenes where he takes out bad guys, my favorite partsORY BRIEF:Reacher thought he killed bad guy Quinn ten years ago. He recently saw Quinn on the street. He learns that FBI agents are trying to catch Quinn and Beck who work together. They believe Beck is into drug smuggling. Reacher gets hired by Beck and is now undercoverVIEWER’S OPINION:There is a great scene in the beginning with Reacher thwartin [...]


    15. Another exciting Jack Reacher adventure. Each time I pick one of these up on a Daily Deal I always think that it will be my last, but Lee Child has a great pen for action-adventure. In this addition Jack finds himself knee deep in a covert mission where he is to extract an under cover operative that is caught up in a drug opperation, however, all things are not what they may seem. When he infiltrates and gains the trust of some of the key players involved, he starts to realize that the whole con [...]



    16. Е, в тая книга каквото можеше да се огелпи, се огелпи. Ама батко Джак, както винаги, е на висота! :)


    17. The Jack Reacher books by Lee Child are like crack. The action is fast paced, the writing quick. The novels read like the fast paced action thrillers they are. I've read two of Child's Reacher novels (the first and the second) and while I wanted to read them in order my experience with them is that each is self contained. These are not sequential novels per se: one need not read the previous to understand the current. Begin a Reacher novel and you are instantly brought into a world that every ch [...]


    18. It's really hard to say something about a Jack Reacher book--in a very real sense, if you've read one, you've read 'em all (maybe this changes after book 7, but I doubt it). But dang it all if you don't come back for more and more and more--like Pringles, or Fritos, etc. Great action; totally outlandish, but (in the moment definitely) believable plot; lots of testosterone-y fun.Two things I'd like to mention about this book. First, there's this fad in TV lately where you watch a scene or two at [...]


    19. Audible. I listened to the end, so I must give it at least two stars. Interested in getting a sense of genre fiction. REacher the hero. Mainly the lonely guy, can't see much else here. Lover. Loyal. A certain ethic about who it's okay to slaughter. A long painful history your'e supposed to care about. Can't even count all of the folks he kills in the book. The main evil guy he kills twice, pretty clever I suppose--once in the flashback but obviously not really and once in the present of the stor [...]


    20. Books can cause real pain. As the world beyond the room goes silently into the embrace of Morpheus, hapless guys stuck with an unputdownable read, keep rubbing their eyes, and carry on. It happens whenever a Jack Reacher novel gets picked up by me. It happens especially if Reacher has some unfinished business, that must be settled NOW. Because, right then the book becomes an unfinished business, and I become Jack Reacher.Unfortunately, the climax of this book came as a massive disappointment. Pr [...]


    21. This is the book that put Lee Child on my must-always-read list. I hated Killing Floor because (1) obviously Lee had never been to Georgia when he wrote this and (2) I wasn't yet published when it came out, so I had to be a jealous hater.Both were remedied by the time I read Persuader, and I could love this book for the pure reading pleasure that it is. Also, I had met Lee by then and he is so handsome and dreamy that it's hard not to see his beautiful, sensitive eyes whenever I think of Jack Re [...]



    22. Jack Reacher witnesses a kidnapping attempt and obviously he has to intervene. Only something goes wrong and a cop ends up dead. As he tries to let the kid go and be on his way before shit hits the fan, only he ends up somewhere he hadn’t planned on. This plot is a complex one. With kidnapping, drugs, dead man walking Jack Reacher has a lot to deal with. But is his presence in the thick of things a mere coincidence? Is he really running the show in this plot or is he being made to dance to som [...]


    23. Very good book. The flashbacks made it even more interesting. This book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. Recommend.


    24. Author Lee Child clearly has a love-hate relationship with guns in his novel "Persuader". It's apparent that he does not like the ease with which anyone can buy or sell guns in this country, and he has disdain for gun dealers, legal or illegal, who sell guns without any care about who they are selling to. On the other hands, guns abound throughout the novel, described in loving detail and used quite frequently. His hero, Reacher is similarly contradictory: he does the right thing but not always [...]


    25. The first chapter isn’t bad, a fairly exciting action scene, although it doesn’t make complete sense. The last line of Chapter One is startling and turns the story on its head. It’s great, in a way. The second chapter explains why Jack Reacher was there, and then it gets way too complicated and repetitious for me. A paragraph or two of back-story would suffice. The narrative breaks two of the rules I tell my students: Don’t repeat and don’t explain. The worst thing you can do is go thr [...]


    26. Not the best Reacher novel I've read, but, certainly, not the worst, either. But, I did like it. As always, action packed and very good writing. Lee Child knows how to keep one's interest in a book. He seldom lets up on the action. When he does, it's because he's setting up the next set of action. I'll keep reading this series. Other authors try to get this much action in and Child does it. During an operation on some drug dealers, Reacher is reminded of another operation earlier in his life whe [...]


    27. Picked this up at since it was free and had it on my digital bookshelf for awhile. Due to internet outage and unable to buy another book to read I decided to try this one out.So for with about 60 percent of the book finished I have really enjoyed this fast moving story of a former military MP out to finish one of his failures have to go undercover in a drug gang which is being run by a group higher up. It does not matter that I have not read any of the other novels in this series since the book [...]
