Anyone else like this series? While I find Reacher as a character unbelievable, I do like the books action & plots.

Major Jack fan here.  

I know his character is kind of unbelievable, but its still great to sit back and wish you could pull off some of the stunts he does.

Next bookcomes out later this month.


BTW, if you like Reacher, you may want to check out the books by Brian Haig (Alexander Haig's son).  His main character, Sean Drummond, is similar to Reacher in that he kicks ass without bothering to take names.

I've read them all so far.

The new one came out on Amazon today, I believe.

Yep, my mom buys the Reacher hardbacks & I read them after she is done.

The author does make some gun mistakes, like he does research but you can tell he really isn't a gun guy. Like his gun prices are MSRP, no one pays that.

Or in Persuader, he was talking about Reacher shooting pistol gripped Mossberg Persuaders w/ slugs & no mention is made of the recoil. Nor having to work the slide after firing.

Big Reacher Fan! Read all of the books! I have been waiting for the latest one to come out. Desert Moon Reads Jack Reacher books too.

I read most of that series and I believe the author is a wanker, Reacher is kinda like The Punisher.

I actually met Lee Child and he is a very likeable guy. He was very easy to talk to and actually took sort of a long time to have a conversation with me. I think I have a pic of us at his book signing somewhere.
