    Nobody should pick up a Jack Reacher novel and expect great literature I might be wrong but I suspect that that isn t Lee Child s purpose What you get instead is a good dollop of wish fulfilment, good writing, beautiful, intelligent and feisty females who are either integral to the development of the plot or just along for the ride, and implausible story lines One shot is no exception why change a winning formula In Reacher, Child has created a character who is, perhaps, not quite the guy Nobody should pick up a Jack Reacher novel and expect great literature I might be wrong but I suspect that that isn t Lee Child s purpose What you get instead is a good dollop of wish fulfilment, good writing, beautiful, intelligent and feisty females who are either integral to the development of the plot or just along for the ride, and implausible story lines One shot is no exception why change a winning formula In Reacher, Child has created a character who is, perhaps, not quite the guy who every other guy wants to be and with whom every woman wants to be , well, at least not permanently But it might be nice for a couple of weeks to be able to kick ass as effectively as he does, to never be wrong, to be able, correctly, to second guess all the villains moves and then to ride off into the sunset with a clear conscience and no dangling strings But in common with all of its predecessors, and despite the implausibility of the plot, One Shot doesn t last a few days let alone a few weeks, it s a real page turner In a genre full of world weary, divorced, alcoholic, guilt ridden cops Reacher is a breath of fresh air the closest thing to Casey Ryback outside of the movies

    A sniper guns down five people The evidence against him is overwhelming When questioned by the police he declares bluntly that they have the wrong man Then he says, Get Reacher The cops have no idea who Reacher is, but you and I should know, because, if we are reading in order this is 9 in the series oops I read this one out of order Reacher, however, is on the way already Why Because, the sniper committed the same type of crime during the Persian Gulf War and got away with it A sniper guns down five people The evidence against him is overwhelming When questioned by the police he declares bluntly that they have the wrong man Then he says, Get Reacher The cops have no idea who Reacher is, but you and I should know, because, if we are reading in order this is 9 in the series oops I read this one out of order Reacher, however, is on the way already Why Because, the sniper committed the same type of crime during the Persian Gulf War and got away with it under Reacher s watch Now Reacher wants nothingthan to assist with the prosecution of this man However, something catches his eye and the whole case begins to stink Reacher jumps in and does his stuff If you ve read any of the other novels in this series you know that his stuff includes busting heads, killing bad guys, and analyzing the heck out of every situation This is one of the best of the series I have read and kept me up late to finish My eyelids got heavy, but I literally could not put it down until I finished it

    Good mystery crime novel with lots of fast paced action and even a bit of romance If you are a Jack Reacher fan, I m sure you will enjoy this entertaining book.As for the movie, it s kind of hard to imagine Tom Cruise as the big and tall Jack Reacher, but I still might give it a try

    I m going to add the same review for all of the Reacher series, so if you ve read this one, you ve read em all If you feel a certain affinity for the lone hero, a man of principle, of unwavering knowledge and assent as to his own actions, than Jack Reacher s your kinda guy Lee Child has created an unforgettable and unique character in his creation of Jack Reacher Jack seems to implicitly understand that he is a unique animal human running around on this planet and that in spite of social con I m going to add the same review for all of the Reacher series, so if you ve read this one, you ve read em all If you feel a certain affinity for the lone hero, a man of principle, of unwavering knowledge and assent as to his own actions, than Jack Reacher s your kinda guy Lee Child has created an unforgettable and unique character in his creation of Jack Reacher Jack seems to implicitly understand that he is a unique animal human running around on this planet and that in spite of social conventions, cultural trappings, and whatever conventions and abstractions we allow into our mind in order to alleviate this core fact of our singularity and aloneness the truth of it is not something Mr Reacher denies.He embraces it Understands his philosophy implicitly, revels in his physical being,his conventions and values He defends those he loves, those he does allow into his world, with a loyalty bar none while never letting go of the notion that he is alone and being perfectly comfortable with that.I read one, and within two months read all 15 books with an appetite that couldn t get enough.Enough said,HR

    One Shot was turned into a vehicle for Tom Cruise and released to theaters late in 2012 I finally read the book and loved it But a little background first Watching the movie was my first exposure to author Lee Child s work And after the opening scene and exposure to the hard bitten dialogue, I was hooked The back and forth got me to recall my obsession during college forays into used book stores hunting for early Mickey Spillane novels The other memory it provoked was watching Humphrey B One Shot was turned into a vehicle for Tom Cruise and released to theaters late in 2012 I finally read the book and loved it But a little background first Watching the movie was my first exposure to author Lee Child s work And after the opening scene and exposure to the hard bitten dialogue, I was hooked The back and forth got me to recall my obsession during college forays into used book stores hunting for early Mickey Spillane novels The other memory it provoked was watching Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon And yes, I m a Tom Cruise fan He s an intense guy and so short I didn t pay any attention to him and Nicole Kidman as they walked alongside my wife and I at Universal Studios way back when But he played Jack Reacher like he really was 6 foot 5 inches and 250 pounds I picked up Child s first novel in the series Killing Floor after reading a short he d written on the young Reacher back in his military base hopping days I plowed through the first five novels before realizing I d better take a break or I d start punching people who deserved it And I d be out ofJack Reacher novels if I read them all Ok, whew So I read some other stuff Got some great recommendations from fellow book enthusiasts I took in a Reacher novel here and there and finally found a dog eared copy of One Shot at the great Book Barn near my home in Clovis, Calif Getting into it took a couple of tries I knew the story via the Christopher McQuarrie directed movie version But after about three chapters, that cloud of repetition faded and I got into the story I pounded it out over several days vacationing on the beach at my sister s in Hermosa Beach Again, I became part of the story That invisible guy on the sidelines watching the case unfold Reacher, as usual, gets an impossible situation and has to make sense of it Along the way, he s harassed by the cops and treated like a criminal Still, it doesn t bother him He was put on this earth with a talent And that s setting things straight Bad people are not his friends But Reacher does what s right, even if that means giving somebody a second chance and a shot at justice Great stuff, especially after body surfing all day and kicking back with a craft beer on a deck overlooking the coast
