I 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.
