.

This was interesting and it was nice to know more of the writer’s process but he comes across as really indifferent in this interview, which can be a bit off putting.

The man behind Jack Reacher

Very interesting to hear Lee Child talking about his method of writing the Jack Reacher books which I love. Hard to believe the plots are not sketched out before hand but perhaps that’s why the stories seem to flow the way they do. There was one, once, where I felt the end just tailed off! But the overall experience is always an exciting one. I have to say I usually listen on audio because I love the reader, Grover Gardner.
Have only given this 4 stars because I felt the interviewer sounded very flat and uninterested. Thank Audible for the chance to hear authors.

Such a disappointment

Oh dear! Found Lee Child's general air of indifference completely fake, as with the majority of his claims. Just sits and writes every book from scratch, off the cuff, with absolutely no pre thought regards storyline /theme? Utter BS! Fortunately I love the character of Reacher too much to allow the authors' arrogance to influence my enjoyment. WTF!? LC

Great insight

A great insight into the way that Lee Child constructs the Reacher novels. I am also very grateful to learn that Mr Child has no plans to retire Jack or kill him off anytime soon, so I'll always have something to binge listen.
Afterthought; obviously nothing could kill Reacher anyway, but it's reassuring to know none the less.

short and not in depth enough insight

I wanted more from someone who is a great writer not a biography but more depth to the interview. what makes him tick what makes him a good writer.

Fascinating to hear from the author

though the interview was many years ago, I enjoyed hearing the author's voice responses. I was surprised at how low key he is; and was, as an avid Reacher fan, pleased to have an explanation for being able to accept Tom Cruise as Reacher in the movies. Personally I always found that to be quite a stretch! Worth a listen.

Very Interesting

Really enjoyed this. That is all i had to say but Audible wants more. Good to hear what a author has to say about their self.

Great interview with Lee

This is a great interview with the creator of the Jack Reacher franchise. Lee has a great background in British media & tv before moving to the US. Over 20 books in the series now. I've read many & listened to many via audible.com---the narrated book is the purest form in my opinion. I have not read his stuff for awhile as I wanted a break. I also am disappointed in the movie industry hiring Tom Cruise to portray Reacher---a 6'5", 250 lb INGRAINED character!
