The book and the movie are similar but the book has more characters involved and a clearer movement from clue to clue to reach the conclusion. The reason for the four stars is that this is a good book in the genre and the Jack Reacher series although I wouldn't rate it so highly against what are often called serious writers.

A Jack Reacher novel which started off rather well but written like a rush job near the end. Too much explaining - pendantic- in the book rather storytelling. Was disappointed and would not recommend.

fun read. I can see why Tom Cruise (and many other actors) would want to portray this character.

Lots of twists and turns in this one.
With the usual gut-wrenching violence. No one is safe.-----I believe the first Jack Reacher book was "Killing Floor" in 1997.

Jack Reacher is a very bad man, but a good one. Glad he's on the side of the good guys. 7 of 10 stars

I like the Jack Reacher character. Good story, even if it is a stretch of plausibility. 7 of 10 for me.
