Die Trying (Jack Reacher 2) by Lee Child

Die Trying (Jack Reacher, #2)Die Trying by Lee Child
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series is quite popular amongst a certain crowd. I’m just a bit perplexed who that crowd might be.

While I’m enjoying elements of the stories (enough to keep me reading at least a couple more) there are incongruous bits that leave me wondering what research the author has done.

In this story, a random act of kindness sets up Mr. Reacher to be kidnapped and for the duration of the book it seems like Reacher is in as much confusion as what is actually happening around him as the reader is. And not in an intended way.

I would have actually scored the book much lower if the story in itself didn’t hold my interest in a way the character wasn’t.
