Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Visitor by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common.

Both were army highflyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.

Now they're both dead.

Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint.

Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.

A man just like Jack Reacher.

Interesting story with twists. Great narration.

Really enjoyed the plot, and the narrator was much better than that used in a previous version which I returned. Most memorable moment "......eyes went wide in sudden panic and then she died". Lots of good lines, characters clearly defined in the voices. This is really helpful.

Best teacher yet

I have heard all the Reacher books and enjoyed them all. But this is probably the best!

Not my favourite so far

I personally like the action Reacher, so for me this story was lacking. However, good plot and usual clever writing. It won't put me off though, on to the next Reacher story.....

Agatha Christie-esque

This was a very well thought out story, but you have to stick with it right to the end for everything to fall into place, much like an Agatha Christie. Some early storyline seems overtly antagonistic between characters, but this fits into place (a bit better) later on. Not my favourite Reacher book, but well worth a read.

Really, really, poor ending.

Like any reader would, I spent the whole book wondering how he was going to reconcile the strange behaviour of some of the book characters. And he achieved it by assuming that his readers are all 9 years old. Not just any 9 year olds but the kind of naive half-stupid 9 year olds who still believe in ghosts and santa claus. I like the Reacher books but this was an insult to my intelligence, a real letdown.

dissapointing

the story became less and less believable. The FBI could not have lied or manipulated in the way they supposedly did. This devalued the whole story.

Author Breaks Trust with His Readers

Any additional comments?

Any reader of a "who done it" expects plot twists. In fact they are crucial to an entertaining read. Lee Child abandons believability in this book. He provide's clues to the murder's identity that are totally bogus. I refer to the scene where the killer is described crossing a name off of a list and is interrupted by an army corporal. Bull shit to the whole story.

Great story telling and Lee keeps you thinking the full length of the book. just when you think you know who it is you get thrown down another path.

Good with some small downsides

Can I give the story a Minus 5 stars?????
This is one of the most annoying books I've ever listed too, what makes it worse is I am a big Reacher fan, but this is awful, apart from another endless line of "Reacher says nothing" the story is ridiculous, the FBI threatens to tell a sadistic killer where Reacher's girlfriend lives so he can do awful things to her if Reacher doesn't help them catch a different sadistic killer????? apart from making absolutely no sense at all the thought of the FBI doing something like that even in a fictional story is beyond any kind of reason, and as for the female lead??? what an annoying b***h, this book was so bad I didn't make it past chapter 9, I hope the next one I start gets back to the old 'cant stop listening' Reacher format and story,

Pity about the narrator ...

Although I am loving the Jack Reacher series, this book was a chore to listen to. If it wasn't that the story was so good, I would have given up after the first half hour. The narrator is one of the worst I have listened to, not finishing his sentences and applying the same sing song cadence to all the sentences he reads.
