Just watch/read “The Thing” instead, it’s 99% the same story. With a few twists to keep out of copy-write infringement

Brilliant & entertaining!

The final book in the series brings together what I can only describe as THE BEST ZOMBIE POST APOCALYPTIC SERIES OF BOOKs, EVER! In reality the books are a great read/listen regardless of your leaning be it action, Zombies, war, grit, combat, or just a ripping good yarn.

The only downside is, it has come to an end, 14 books of pure and unaltered action, just fantastic.

Good, very good, loved it.

If you could sum up Paradox Bound in three words, what would they be?

time travel twister

What did you like best about this story?

the interchange between the characters and the fact that there are all good solid individuals, all with a story to tell, makes this a good book.

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

Yes I have, he is a good narrator, and this was a superbly narrated story.

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

Have you ever thought about traveling through history, not time?

What disappointed you about The Midnight Line?

The formula of the wandering good guy, rough around the edges, doing good where ever he goes, dishing out hard justice, is just not cutting it any more.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

I've listened/read every JR novel to date, so probably, only in the (vain) hope its a good one

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

Rose.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If you are not a Reacher fan, then this book as a stand alone novel, is not bad.

Any additional comments?

If you have not read the early Reacher books, do so, they are great, however, do not read ANY short stories, they are not worth it.

Excellent foolow up book...

A great follow up to the first book, possibly not as good a story line, but a very enjoyable listen never the less.

Really wanted to like this, did not.

This is just a exercise in cashing in on the Alien story, and timed to come out with the upcoming release of "Covenant". The story is as expected with zero surprises for the doomed colony of Hadleys Hope on LV426 It does not work for a play of actors, nothing was particularity bad, it was just not good!

If you could sum up The End of the World Running Club in three words, what would they be?

A good story, a different take on the "End of the World" type story, all be it a little gloomy towards the end, but I really enjoyed it.

Really great ideas from a creative writer

What did you like most about Tales of the Unusual?

The stories are all from original ideas and even though they are "short stories" they hold the readers imagination and develop into a full story, the characters are believable and you are able to form a relationship with them, you get involved.

Any additional comments?

Read many of Luke's books, must admit, this one is another "good book" highly recommended.

Brilliantly written and performed. The story is well laid out and builds repeatedly into the action each time. The main character is developed nicely into someone that you can really get interested in. If you know who "repairman Jack" is, you will love this.
