Would you listen to Never Go Back again? Why?

I find all Lee Childs books very readable, and this is up to the same high standard.

What did you like best about this story?

Reacher on the run is always great fun.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Harding – was your favourite?

Reacher of course is my favourite, no contest!

Any additional comments?

I did find it was a little frustrating at the start, but once it got going it was brilliant.

Frustrating

Not a patch on the first in the series, and not as
good as the 2nd either. It could have been half as
long in my opinion, it took ages to get to the obvious
end point, which made it very frustrating. There were
parts of the book where not a lot happened.

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

enjoyed it lots

This is not the sort of thing I normally read, but I really enjoyed it. The story of how this primative race lived and their customs really kept me gripped, with a great plot with plenty of trials and tests for the central character.

Pretty good

I love this series, and this is certainly not the best. However, I do think it is better than firey Cross. Way too much of Willy and Lord John in this for my liking, and Willy is a pretty poor character if you ask me. A lot of the William stuff is pretty boring, and quite disjointed. Saying that, the Jamie and Clare stuff was really high quality as ever!

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet cover art

fuss!

I really don't know what all the fuss was about this. It's an ok listen. You will need lots of patients, especially to get through the first part. The history was interesting, but this book was not dramatic, and often took a long time to get around to any exciting plot twists.

I was really pleased with this book. Lately, I've been guessing the end of books far too easily, so this was a pleasant change. A good pace to the book, Great narration, and plenty of twists and turns!

Love Leo

Leo Waterman is a very cool PI, who doesn't show an awful lot of respect for authority. I love this one, it's the best in the series so far, although some of the story line is extremely far fetched, but very humorous. Watch out for the really funny refridgerator joke towards the end.

I loved it!

This is the most enjoyable book I have read in a long time. The History is quite a big part of this, and if you know the History it will add to your enjoyment, but it is a great action fillled listen without that. A brilliant naration as well!

SLOW START BUT ENJOYABLE

I thought the reader was good, and represented Catherine Dance's thoughts and feelings well. It was a bit slow at the beginning, but I did get caught up in it eventually. Not as good as the majority of Deaver books though.
