I’ve read several of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels now and I can easily say this was my least favorite. It wasn’t anything in particular that stopped me from a better review and adding a star to the rating. I guess it comes down to personal taste and this story didn’t have the right flavor for me. It’s only the 2nd book in the Reacher series so perhaps it didn’t contain the ingredients I usually find palatable in Child’s writing.
The story is descent, with good characters, but the plot seemed too familiar, maybe lacking enough spice to make a great dish. It was an entertaining read that I ripped through quickly, but only because I had nothing better to do.

I’ve read a few of Lee Child‘s Jack Reacher novels now, and I have to say Personal was probably my favorite. I found a little more dry (Reacher) humor in this one, and a lot less of Child’s sometimes painfully slow narrative.
I liked the characters and the plot moved well, with a couple of twists to keep you guessing right until the end. For me, it was a fun read!

I thought this was a great book with an intriguing story and interesting characters. John Puller seems more believable than Jack Reacher.
My only complaint is that it was a bit long, and could have easily been trimmed shorter by eliminating repetition. It was my first novel by this author, but it won’t be my last.
