At just 16 years Danny Dunn has everything going for him: brains, looks, sporting aptitude - and luck with the ladies. His mother steers him towards a university education, but with just six months of his degree to go, he signs up for the AIF, driven by a desire to serve his country and plain wanderlust. Danny serves in South-east Asia, spends three and a half years as a POW, and returns a broken man, embittered and facially disfigured. He is scared and overwhelmed by the need to sort himself out, to find out who the hell he is....

Hard to get into initially. Enjoyed the mid section chapters but then it went progressively downhill. Last 5-6 chapters are just waffle. Lots of 'deep and meaningful' that has no depth or meaning!

For Jack Reacher being invisible has become a habit. He spends his days digging swimming pools by hand and his nights as the bouncer in the local strip club in the Florida Keys.

Storyline not as captivating as others in the series. Narrator uses accents for different characters but occasionally doesn't switch accent to match the speaking character- annoying / distracting.
