Publisher's Summary

61 Hours ended with maverick loner Jack Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him. But Reacher has done the impossible before.

Now there's deadly trouble in the wilds of Nebraska... and 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 eight-year-old girl, already decades-old, that Reacher can't let go.The Duncans want Reacher gone - or dead. 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. Reacher - bruised and battered - should have just kept on going. But for Reacher, that was impossible.

Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive - a heart-racing novel no suspense fan will want to miss.

    "Reacher at his best"

    Finally I was able to listen to the unabridged version, because you don't want to miss any details in the story. This one is a classic story about how some bad people manage to terrorize an entire town. Of course that's the kind of thing that Reacher despises. What he thinks of as a case of wife beating becomes far more sinister as the story progresses. And, of course, Reacher manges to rise to the occasion, despite his injuries from his previous adventure.

    "Well performed, very enjoyable"

    I like the Reacher books because everything is logical. I learnt at school that fiction, or possibly drama, needs the "willing suspension of disbelief". Once you accept the premises that Jack Reacher starts from, the stories become believeable. His ability to predict the behaviour of other people is only surprising because he is so male - most men do not see these patterns as women do. He is attractive to women readers because he likes women and treats them as equals. His lack of commitment prevents too much sentimentality creeping in.

    I like Jeff Harding's readings. Harding observes the rhythms of the prose and gets all the voices different. It's a very professional performance.

    "Lots of action"

    If you have a novel featuring Jack Reacher then you should get plenty of action, and in this book you certainly do! One of my favourite Jack Reacher books, busy and action packed throughout, really enjoyed the storyline!

    "Excellent plot, wrong voice!"

    Had read all the other Jack Reacher novels and, although the story is still excellent, I didn't like the reader. Jack sounded all wrong! Listen to the preview and then buy if he sounds like your Jack!

    "One of the best Jack Reacher books"

    "Usual high standard"

    A usual high standard from Lee Child, not the best of his books, but still very enjoyable. Plenty of fighting which is great!

    "Worth Paying For"

    I'm not a particularly avid reader of thrillers and hadn't heard of Lee Child until I saw a TV interview of him in relation to the Jack Reacher film released recently. It piqued my interest so I thought I'd have a go at a Reacher novel when I saw this in an Audible special offer.

    I have to say that I did not regret my choice; I found this to be a great listen, with action from start to finish and a story that unfolded very nicely over the length of the novel.

    I suspect that this book will not be for everyone. Child's characterisation of Reacher is very spare and he is definitely a man of few (or no) words; many conversations within the book develop along similar lines with the same phrases re-used in only a slightly modified form. Child also has a methodical and detailed approach to defining the actions of his characters; one example that stands out to me is when he describes Reacher adjusting the driving position step by step in a rental car to accommodate his large frame. None of this bothered me however, in fact I found Child's style of writing to be both distinctive and enjoyable. I also felt that it suited the story and the nature of the characters within it while helping to keep the narrative moving in a way that made me want to find out what was going to happen next.

    Reacher is such a capable individual that he never really seemed to be in genuine peril, but that didn't detract from my desire to find out how he was going to bludgeon his way through the next set of bad guys.

    The plot of this book and some of the descriptions of the violence within it are not for the faint-hearted, but it didn't feel especially gratuitous considering it is a thriller aimed at an adult audience.

    Jeff Harding is a great choice of narrator for this book. He made the characters distinctive and his pacing of the dialogue felt like an excellent match for Child's writing style. It certainly brought the book alive for me.

    All in all, this book provided pretty much everything I hoped for when I handed over my credit - an impossibly tough guy dealing out retribution to some very bad people - excellent escapist fiction.

    "Addictive"

    Once you start with Jack Reacher I found it was hard to stop. I have read several of his books lately and I think Lee Child is always great value

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Too boring.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing, the narration was fine


    Do you think Worth Dying For needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Hell no


    Any additional comments?

    It's an okay story but it really drags through the middle. Not as good as other Lee Child books I have read.

    "Not Worth Dying For"
    What would have made Worth Dying For better?

    A plausible plot and some realistic characters might improve this novel.


    Has Worth Dying For turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has certainly turned me off books by Lee Child.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This would be hard with a plot and characters like those found in this book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Worth Dying For?

    All of the book.

    Story
    "Reacher restoring small town America (again)."
    What did you love best about Worth Dying For?

    What is not to love about Jack Reacher? In the vein of our comic need for a super hero, Jack Reacher kicks all the tochas that needs kicking, somehow managing to lay to rest the cruelty of another modern day injustice. Scant regard for judice prudence and a strong regard for street justice, country bumpkin villains are sorely sorted. The obligatory, slightly confused, lass under strain, is the love interest. The underlying issues is worthy of a moral pulpit. The destruction of baddies epic. The Cathartic purge and fiction of simple and uncomplicated comeuppance mesmerising. So, what is not to love about Jack Reacher? What is not to love about Lee Child, after all he hails from Coventry!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jack Reacher is simple, Sherlock your way to the heart of a wrong, beat, kill or punish the perpetrator, tryst the local beauty and hitchhike into the sunset. In this novel, inbred hillbillies get their but kicked. What more could one want?


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    Mr Harding is brilliant, dulcet drawling American accent adds to this non-American the perfect tone for Jack.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yup.

    "Enthralling"

    I found this book Lee Childs' best so far. Jeff does the voices so well. Kept me listening for hours.
    Jack Reacher is my hero, although a little violent at times it thrilled the 'young boy' within my mind.
