Wow. I'm so pleased to discover this author. Superb story, well written, well read. Not a dull moment. A must read. Ten out of ten.

Interesting story but not captivating.

The book is written from the God view, and I got lost with the jumps from character to character, sometimes in a paragraph. The audio is worse as there is no discernable break so you are with one character - oh, no your not. Overall pretty good. Plausibility only 5/10. John Chance does a fine job of staying in character with his voices. Syrupy ending.

Lucky this wasn't Lee Child's first book. It's terrible. Plot stinks. Characters are a joke. And the writing is rubbish.

So bad... I must be the odd man out...

I have no idea why others thought this was good or that it even deserved a second book. Just terrible and the reader... so bad.

I had to listen to the first 2 chapters twice. I was drifting off. But a good story. Parts were disappointing. Nicely written.

Great story ruined by weak ending.

Reading his diary was good. The story around it was pathetic. I finished feeling that I was robbed. This book had great potential but lost the plot - literally!

Somewhat convoluted & too coincidental for belief.

Not bad. Some interesting insights into psychology. Several times my unbelief meter clanged loudly.

Okay, but far from Child's best.

Not a bad yarn, but I was left with unanswered holes and a story convolution near the end that screamed 'amateur'. Reacher asked what it was, so he told him. (But not the reader!) Terrible technique.

It was okay. Had some great moments but also lots of cringe worthy ones. Shove it up her urethra - really?

3 hours in and I had to put it down. BORING. Probably just me, because it seems lots of people think otherwise. Little things lost in translation bother me too. The puppy's black eyes were filled with horror. I'm sure terror is a better word. Just one of a hundred quibbles that put me off.
