Lee Child (Reacher Series)

I can't believe I opened a thread in BookTalk

Just saw the movie last week and really enjoyed it. I'm no regular reader. In fact I hardly read. I lose focus quick if something doesn't grab me or just too much technical information is being thrown at me.

Is this series a fun easy read that will make me wanna keep turning pages?

Just for some insight I read Mutation by Robin Cook and few years back and really liked that. I know it's a medical thriller but this is just a different type of thriller.

I like fun easy reads. Is this for me?

So the legends of BookTalk are true? It's scary lonely here.

Re: Lee Child (Reacher Series)

The Reacher books definitely have a fan base (I'm one of them). However, I do recognize they are definitely genre books (quite disposable), yet Lee Child has derived a formula that works. I've read 8 of them and couldn't really tell you one book from another, but I know I had a good time reading them.

Give the first one a try (Killing Floor). If you like that, the rest are pretty similar. There are also a couple existing threads on the Reacher books here and here.

There are definitely a few of us that are frequent visitors to the Book Forum (I try to peek in at least daily). The forum activity does have notable increases a couple times a year (it typically coincides whenever Stephen King writes a new novel ).

I'd say this is pretty accurate. They're enjoyable enough to read, with some being better than others. I've read them all so far, and with the exception of events in some of the better books, I don't really remember one from the other either . But if you're looking for fun easy reads - I'd recommend them.

Re: Lee Child (Reacher Series)

I am reading the series now, I'm on number 11, I think... I like reading them and like stated before they are an easy read. I started reading them because I was reading Vince Flynn and he said he liked the series.
