Jack Reacher

Dull, insipid nonsense albeit a little better than the books. But I guess it'd make a good popcorn flick. A bit of a new low for Tom Cruise.

Lee Child's third Jack Reacher book, Tripwire has an interesting plot, but ridiculously scripted. I think that the series would have been a whole lot better if it had been more risqué.

Ridiculous but entertaining which is what I guess the USP is.

Die Trying

Lee Child's second Jack Reacher book, Die Trying has a worse plot than the first albeit with better writing. I bet US soldiers really lap this up.

I'm going to give a "pass" rating to this entire series. It really isn't very good. But I have a few more of these Jack Reacher books and I'm going to go through the lot of 'em, I reckon :)

Killing Floor

A very "pulpy" action novel by author, Lee Child, The Killing Floor does not really throw any surprises your way. The hero is a Jack Reacher and is an army man who now wanders aimlessly around the US thereby allowing the author to create an entire series around his persona. The classic masterless Samurai/Ronin cliché :)

Passable read.
