Gone Tomorrow

Gone Tomorrow by Lee ChildI read Killing Floor, the first Jack Reacher book last year or the year before. While these books should be in my wheelhouse (I like thrillers and lone heroes), I couldn’t quite get into the book and I walked away thinking it was just okay. As for Gone Tomorrow, I found it to be a little bit better than Killing Floor, but I still do not understand why everyone likes Jack Reacher so much.

Jack seems to be a technophobe, but figures out cell phones. He doesn’t really understand computers, but knows enough to buy a duplicate stick drive. He’s so big that he automatically stands out, but manages to blend in everywhere he goes. I’m not sure I understand why it’s so important to know that he stands out, yet blends in.

The book was well-plotted, but I found the ending to be extremely predictable and there wasn’t much, if anything, left to surprise. That being said, the book wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t great either.

I won this book from Goodreads and received no compensation in exchange for this review. The opinions contained herein are mine and mine alone.
