The story itself was ok, the problem was the length of time that it got dragged out over. Simply too long.
And Jack Reacher didn't have enough punch ups, he's getting soft!!!. More justified violence please.

However the narrator was as fantastic as ever, he has a great style for these types of novels. He kept it flowing where if I was reading I would have given up.

Still overall worth it, but a shorter version would have been better for me. I do bore easily though. But previous Lee Child novels are much grittier and more thrilling

What I liked was the amount of knowledge that was put into one book!
The story of how so many different factors changed the course of history.
Plenty of good things and bad things humans have done. Not just the way we treat each other but other species was an eye opener. I thought I knew a lot about that and the world already, but I really knew very little.


What a decent honest story

Fantastic, a well told journey. Great advice for budding actors (actually good for all actors)

In my opinion this could have been a good story had it been half as long.
But it went into unnecessary and uninteresting detail
The narrator however did a good job

Good narration and the pace was perfect

I'm normally a sceptical fiction reader due to stories not adding up. But this story had plenty of plausible events that all tied together. Had I been briefed on the plot I wouldn't have listened to this. But I'm glad I wasn't briefed because I got to enjoy a well structured story with plenty of twists and turns

A good story read by a fantastic Narrator

I liked the story and reasonably average complexity. I wouldn't call it a cliff hanger but it was intriguing and enjoyable enough to want to keep listening. I was even more impressed by the narrator, who could jump from one character to another with ease. The characters sounded like truly different people, yet it was all the one narrator. The only thing I found slightly annoying at times was the gravely voice got a little bit too gravely (almost that forced 'vocal fry' sound). However that's more my personal view. As maybe a gravely voice is well suited for a crime novel.

That said I will be definitely be looking for this Narrator, Titus Welliver again, he was awesome!

A long but believable story, enough to hold ones interested along the way.

The reader was good, soothing in fact, considering the story wasn't that dynamic.
What is interesting is these pharmaceutical company cases are very similar to real life settlements that actually have occurred and been reported in reputable newspapers. Meaning this story probably is linked to actual cases with only name, illness and symptom differences.
I do like it when a story doesn't have to make things unbelievable to fit the plot.
