Worth Dying For by Lee Child

    Run by Jeff Abbott (benl2k)
    benl2k: I find the character of Jack Reacher to be very similar to the character Pilgrim in Run. Also, Run is written in the same fast-paced action packed style as the Jack Reacher novels.

Ooo, a very good Jack Reacher story. I've liked all of them, but some of them are certainly a little lazier than others. This one's not lazy at all, a pretty good story, great characters, and, well, the evil is indeed dealt with. And Jack is still on his way to Virginia. Not much to do at all with the cliffhanger ending of the previous novel, but a great explanation as to what happened. (And that is a very short scene in this book.) ( )

This was not nearly as good as the previous, 61 Hours. I think the author hacked this one together just to sell it quickly. The previous book left readers with a cliff-hanger and the publisher/author knew people would buy no matter what. There is no character development. Writing-wise this was pure disappointment, but as with all Child books it was a page-turner so I finished it. ( )

A good Reacher. ( )

3 stars - This will be my last Jack Reacher book. The stories have become predictable and no longer fun. The writing is not exciting or gripping anymore. It could be that it hasn't gotten worse, but that it has become too familiar, or more likely, it could be that Lee Child is phoning it in. Whichever, I think there are more interesting books to read than continuing this series. ( )

A marked improvement over the last few books in the Jack Reacher series. Cleaner plotting, but still follows the small-town-problems-linked-to-larger-criminal-conspiracy template. Hoping the next one opens up a bit. ( )

Book description
#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying 61 Hours with his latest Reacher thriller—a story that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown.
There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska . . . and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go.
The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment that’s already late—and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they’re just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world. 
For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to keep on going, to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him.
For Reacher, that was also impossible.  Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive—a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.
