Book Review | Die Trying (Jack Reacher #2) by Lee Child

Die Trying is the second installment in Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series.
When a woman is kidnapped, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Now he has to save them both.

In my review of the first Jack Reacher book, Killing Floor, I mentioned expecting these books to be more military in nature. Die Trying was closer to what I was expecting but still very much in the thriller genre which I enjoy.

Some things I was happy about in this sequel: multiple POVs, better developed characters, continued fast pacing, very stand alone for a series.

I do hope there is a lot more diversity in the bad guys going forward, though. So far all of the bad guys are exactly alike. Despite that complaint, I’m really enjoying this series. I love page turners so this series is perfect to continue any time I need some suspense.

If you enjoy fast paced thrillers, too, you should join me in reading this series!

6/10: Good Read

Discussion:
Have you read any of the Jack Reacher series? Have you seen the movie yet? Are you a fan of Tom Cruise? I must admit to being a big fan of Tom Cruise. He's clearly nuts, but he's such a great actor. A Few Good Men is one of my top favorite movies of all time.

  1. I have read the first book, and somewhere on my Kindle I think I have this one too, I just don't know that I have the time. I'm really hoping to avoid the movie so that I don't have Tom Cruise as my inner picture of Jack Reacher.

    1. Where did my comment go? :( I replied to you this morning. Oh, well. I said something along the lines of assuming I will picture Tom once I watch the movie, too. He seems like an odd choice but since I love his acting, I'm not hating on it.

  2. I have never read any Jack Reacher books. I'm not crazy about Tom C. either...so...there ya' go.

  3. Each of these books is a little different in setting and the time in Reacher's life so Child can keep him fresh. Glad you are enjoying them.
