This novel was pretty lame. I had put this on my wish list before I read the last one so when it arrived, I read it despite my notion that this series is spent. Even the other reviews on this web site mention the way it "slows down" and is "repetitive" yet they still give it good reviews. If I wanted to read a slow, repetitive book I would at least expect skillful prose or insightful commentary. The 61 hours of the title is an amateurish writing trick to try to instill some excitement for the reader. It is like Lee child watched Jack Bauer but didn't get the idea. Would I read the next one? Maybe. I sure would not buy it. I do not even think I would use a PBS credit for it. Sounds harsh, but that is my unvarnished opinion.

I am just now discovering Lee Child's books and so far I am loving them I thought this book was very good and suspenseful to the end.

Not enough fight scenes in this one. Story was not as nail biting as others have been. I thought character of Plato was a little over the top as well. Would have like more interaction between him and Reacher.

Jack Reacher, the man with no address, no luggage, new clothes every few days, no vehicle, and apparently no direction. He manages to find trouble wherever he goes and always solves any problems he encounters. This particular book leads you to believe he may have met his end this time. Find out? Buy the next book.

OK this is a great book if you can sit and not stop reading. Reacher is one of my favorite real men and he proves it here. Talk about keep you on the edge of your seat. The discriptions of the cold west actually made me feel cold sitting in my warm and cozy chair. It will be a great read. Suspense abounds.

One of the better Reacher stories. He falls into a Northern town in the dead of winter and helps solve murder and mayhem. Seems like he dies at the end, but that can't be....

This is a series, but then again, it's not really. The stories follow an ex-Army cop/investigator that has become a drifter trying to stay under the radar. Only one person knows how to contact him in a dire emergency. There are references to people in previous books, but most times it's not cogent to the current story. I love the character and his intelligence and ingenuity in the situations he finds himself in.
