Book Review of Without Fail (Jack Reacher, Bk 6)

Without Fail (Jack Reacher, Bk 6)

Helpful Score: 2

The Reacher books have a certain dour helplessness to them. They read like what I imagine a good Western would be like, if I'd ever read a Western. They could almost pass muster for Russian literature, except that they generally have happy endings to at least some of the narrative threads. For all that, they're excellent books, if you're into moderate plot complexity in the thriller genre and don't care overmuch for extremes of character development. Really good light reading.
