If you could sum up Never Go Back in three words, what would they be?

Jaded but ok.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I wasn't at all amazed in anyway.

What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

He is a fantastic reader and I always enjoy the accents and voices.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

NA

Any additional comments?

This book, although well written and read just didn't really do anything for me either way. Lee Child in my opinion at least seems to be dragging the series out far too much now. Perhaps there should be a book where we do wonder if Reacher will just cut and run for it as a last option. They are just too predictable now for my taste and I don't expect to be buying the next one.

My dear old thing!

Where does Squeezing the Orange rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best

Who was your favorite character and why?

Blowers. They don't make them like him anymore

Have you listened to any of Henry Blofeld’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, a comedy show. This one is brilliant

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?

This is a marvelous book with loads of funny stories and happenings from Blowers life. Also, a brief glimps in to a world many of us will never know of Eton college and so forth. A must read for listeners to Test Match Special or just lovers of cricket. Brilliantly read and wonderfully written too it is one of the best books I have read this year.

This was the first Lee Child book I read, about 8 years ago now.
When I joined audible, I just had to see if there were anymore. This is a great book, and full of suspense and is also a brilliantly constructed story, which usually helps. It is also well read.
Buy Buy Buy!

This book is a gripping narative and worth the time to listen.
Even though it is in the first person, the obvious isn't always that and even though you no that Reicher will not die, it is still not clear if he will solve anything, or for that matter how.

Worth reading.

This book is a good read, keeping you interested in the story. It is also well read which helps.
However, it is very much abridged which spoils the story some what.
There is an unabridged version out in the US but we aren't allowed to have it.
All in all though, a good book and I will now read the second.

good, but over priced.

This book is something that people who are interested in Malta, and its servival during the second world war should read.
It has good characters in, and if the end is a tad obvious, it is never the less yet another good book by Reeman. Audible should have more of them.

Fantastic Listen.

This book has a great story line, filled with intrigue, suspense and action.
It also has that touch of romance, which brings the human side of some of the characters out and the inhumane side of others.

It is very well read by David and Douglas, who has written many quality books has not dissapointed with this one.

This book is well read, and all though the story is a little obvious, it is still worth a listen.

Drama is not as good as the book.

Overall

I thought that the book was better than this drama, which is ruined by accents etc.

Code to Zero is also a better book.

This is a fantastic book however, abridging it ruins a great work.
I personally would read the full version as you get a better grasp of events and a better story all together.
