Killing Floor | Lee Child, Child
post image

Well, never thought I would have shingles at the age of 39, but here I am. Stress is a funny thing, it can bring out the worst in you.

On the plus side, I can take tmrw off work to rest, so I'm going to focus on my reading and maybe do some more audiocrafting.

The moral of the story, take time for yourself and don't let stress consume you.

Bookworm54 Hope you feel better soon! 3mo

KristiAhlers I got shingles when I was 35. It was the worst pain I have ever experienced and that‘s to include child birth. Hope you soon start to feel some relief. My was triggered by horrible stress too. 3mo
AmyG My son had it in his mid 20‘s. I hope it‘s bot too painful for you and you recover soon. 3mo
aperfectmjk @KristiAhlers geez! I've never had a child... so now I'm not feeling so confident. So far the pain is manageable, but I was really scared there for a bit because I was having chest pain, which apparently is common. My husband keeps downplaying it... saying "Oh, you're not really sick." 3mo

KristiAhlers @aperfectmjk it may just depend on where your shingles have broken out. Mine started in the middle of my spine and wrapped around my left side to end in my left nipple. And it rode right along the bra line. My husband came up one day and just rubbed his hand down my back like he always does and it dropped me to the floor. I pray yours aren‘t as painful. (edited) 3mo
aperfectmjk @KristiAhlers mine also started with pain in my spine, the rash is on my left side right along the bra line as well. It has not spread to the front side of my body, and I hope it doesn't. But, I do feel muscle tension in my chest, neck, and armpit area, which I think may be from my lymph node being swollen. 3mo
Kimberlone I had shingles for the first time at 26! Super stressful time in my life. It was pretty horrible and I even caught it early. Unfortunately runs in my family :/ thankfully haven‘t had an outbreak since then. I feel your pain! It gets better 💜 3mo

I don‘t read this genre very often. I‘m glad I read this book. I plan to watch the series on Amazon Prime next. Jack Reacher is a fascinating character, who it seems can‘t be stopped. I‘d like to continue on with this series to see where it takes him. It deems that his character is the only content that will go from book to book. If you liked fast paced and action packed, this book is for you.

I‘ve never read a Jack Reacher book and I don‘t think I‘m about to start - but I did enjoy watching all 8(ish) hours of the tv show… I was just going to watch the first episode and then go about my Saturday but I watched it all - no regrets, I had popcorn and several pots of peppermint tea.

Ruthiella That‘s fair! There are lots of books that I can appreciate better when adapted for the screen. Also, the TV actor is like 2x the size of Tom Cruise. I know the books‘ reputation and why they cast Cruise in the movie version makes no sense. 8mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Ruthiella, I was the recipient of *many* TED talks on the subject of why Tom Cruise was wrong for Reacher by a friend who did love the books 😂 I love watching action stuff but it‘s not my go to genre for reading. 8mo

A fun read with plenty of entertaining twists. Reacher made me roll my eyes a few times, but I didn‘t mind. I listened to the audiobook for at least 1/2 of this book, on my commutes. The audio is okay, narrated by Dick Hill. The narrator didn‘t do Southern accents well and in the high action parts near the end, he reminded me of a horse race announcer with his speed and intensity 😂 I‘ll read/listen further though. A nice break from heavier reads.

TracyReadsBooks I really like this series. Have you watched the new tv show on Amazon? We‘ve started it and are really enjoying it! 8mo

Leftcoastzen Going to check it out tonight!This actor looks more like what I imagined Reacher to look like . Not up to date with the book series though. 8mo
Maya.McClan @Leftcoastzen My thoughts exactly. When Tom Cruise was cast in the movies It was so disappointing. He‘s like 5‘8 and Jack Reacher is suppose to be huge and like 6‘5. Whose terrible idea was that? Definitely nobody that read the books. 8mo

Solid 4 🌟 for me. This had a few twists and turns I wasn't expecting. The pace was quick and driving. The short sentence structure actually enhanced the Reacher character in my opinion. I did figure out one of the major players quickly but not what they were up to. Reacher is a solid character. This is a fun, take a break from the heavier reading, book. I'll be sprinkling more of these in my reading.

My first Reacher book. Good story about a corrupt town bought off by steady streams of cash. Reacher fans will like the story and not be surprised (spoiler alert) that Reacher walks away from his love interest.

“They were dead. I had seen a lot of dead people, and these two were as dead as any of them.”

Nope. I suspect I shouldn‘t have picked Lee Child‘s first effort to give him a try.

Another series that I had never read nor seen the movies, but I've been meaning to give it a go ever since Karin Slaughter did a crossover novella with Will Trent. I won't lie, my first impression was something like "why are these sentences so short and where are the commas?" but before I knew it, BOOM. I was hooked. Fast paced. Well plotted. Good thrills. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Vivlio_Gnosi It's an addictive series. 2y

#20Series20days #Top20Series day 5 Jack Reacher is ex military, he seems unable to walk away from difficult situations especially, if righting a wrong .Killing Floor is the 1st , the 4th ,Running Blind is called The Visitor in the UK.There are 26 books , I‘ve read the first 5.
I‘m not a fan of Tom Cruise, he played Reacher in the film.No offense meant ,I just pictured Reacher as a burly version of the author , Lee Child!😃

Andrew65 Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher 🙈🤷‍♂️😡 A well written series, be interesting to see the impact of his brother writing the future books. I think I am about 13 or 14 books in. 2y

The preview chapter means I'm done with the book!

A fine, if uncomplicated, crime novel where the hero is ultra-competent. Everything fits together. No false leads. Just lots and lots of plot.

kingrat Should note this fails the Bechdel test pretty badly. There's only three named female characters, and they never talk to each other. 3y

First time I've ever thought to look up "lugubrious". I thought it meant some sort of jolly.

kingrat There's one more plot twist coming, according to the hints laid down by Lee Child, and I'm pretty sure I know what it is. Child has done a great job of making all the clues tie together, but he hasn't done much of leaving any dead end clues. 3y

Now this is a shock! Lee Child passing the Jack Reacher series over to his brother! Will be interesting to see what happens.

Any thoughts on this?

EadieB @Andrew65 His brother, Andrew Grant, is a very good writer so I think it should work out and he may even write better that his brother, Lee Child. 3y

Nute That‘s interesting. Is his brother a known author? 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 Well, I've only read 1 book of the Jack Reacher books which is the tagged book so I won't be a good judge but his brother's name is Andrew so that is a plus! 3y
Andrew65 @Nute Yes, Andrew Grant is his brother. https://www.fantasticfiction.com/g/andrew-grant/ This was his first book which I read and enjoyed. 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB 😂 Things are on the up. I must have read about 9 or so and really enjoyed them but then put off with Tom Cruise playing him on a film. 3y
Nute Oh, I just read the thread. I think that I‘ve heard of Andrew Grant. 3y
Andrew65 @Nute My wife has read a few and is a fan. 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 I read that one too although I can't find my review but I'm still looking. 3y
Nute I didn‘t know that he is Lee Child‘s brother. It will be more than interesting to see the direction in which he takes Jack Reacher. 3y
suzie.reads I have read all the Reacher books and it's been a rocky relationship. I've just started enjoying them again and he is passing the writing over to his brother? Very strange! 3y
Andrew65 @suzie.reads That‘s what I thought. 3y
suzie.reads @Andrew65 it is shear greed. They don't want to write but want the money from the franchise. James Patterson is the same he barely writes any of his books anymore and it is really noticeable. Women's murder clubs past few books have been written solely by Maxine Paetro, they have been totally different and very poor. 3y
Birdsong28 It could bring a fresh perspective on the series and maybe he could be smiliar in his writing style so that it won't be too much of a change. 3y
Leftcoastzen Not happy.Glad to hear that some Littens enjoy Andrews style .I‘m so slow at the series that I have many to enjoy before I get through the original 24 3y
Andrew65 @suzie.reads I‘d agree and exactly what my wife said. Also have to agree about the recent Women‘s Murder Club Series Books. 3y
Andrew65 @Leftcoastzen Me too. Lee Child is relatively young to stop writing. Possibly lost his mojo! (edited) 3y
ljuliel I haven‘t read books by either of them. I don‘t recall ever hearing of an author passing the job on to a relative , although I have heard of relatives who also become authors , like Leif Enger, then brother Lin , Anne Rule and daughter Leslie . Then of course , Stephen King, almost his entire family writes, other than his daughter ? Wife, and both sons write. (edited) 3y
TiredLibrarian @Birdsong28 Agree with you & @EadieB that this could be a good thing. I've read the whole series (within 60 pages of the end of #24!) & while I love them, it seems like Child has had to "reach" to keep the series from getting stale - flashbacks, odd subplots, etc... If Andrew Grant can breathe new life into it while keeping what we love about Reacher, good for them both. I've read too many series where the author doesn't know when to hang it up. 3y
Andrew65 @TiredLibrarian Perhaps that might have been a better option, to retire the series. I‘ve yet to read the recent ones. 3y
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I've not read any of the Reacher books. My hubby has read them all, and waits for them. Though hes been a bit disappointed in the last couple. And he says Cruise is NOT Jack Reacher at all! I'll be sure to tell him this! 3y
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Tell him I stopped reading them for a while when they cast Tom Cruise. Ridiculous decision! They are good reads, although only read about 9. (edited) 3y
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I think he was ready to stop reading them too, he was very disappointed in them casting him. 3y
gradcat @Andrew65 I agree! I‘m very surprised about this!! So shocked that he won‘t be writing Jack Reacher anymore. 😳 @Crazeedi He is right—my brother says the same thing—Cruise is not Reacher! I stopped reading them after about, what, about 14 or so? Maybe this will be a good thing—new blood—we shall see, @TiredLibrarian & @EadieB Strange timing, though, right after Amazon announces an upcoming televised version. Humpf. (edited) 3y
EadieB @gradcat His decision about Tom Cruise shows he made it all for the money as he thought Cruise would draw the people but I think it kind of backfired! @Andrew65 @Crazeedi (edited) 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB I know the studios have the control but should have sorted this before finalised the deal and been prepared to walk away, as I do feel this really harmed the book series for many - me definitely included! @Crazeedi (edited) 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 if his brother doesn‘t do a good job with the writing, it will definitely be goodbye Jack! @Crazeedi @gradcat 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB As my wife said, he may do a better job! 3y
EadieB @Andrew65 I agree with your wife but you know people are so critical if given the chance to criticize. 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB Mostly definitely, like to see people fall! 3y
gradcat @EadieB Did he have any say in the choice of actor? Most of the time, writers don‘t get that, so I didn‘t realize he had approval. I just figured Cruise bought the rights and put it out through his own production company. Oh, well, live and learn. Child always seemed so nice...you should never meet your heroes, right?! 😂🤣😂 Poor Jack may very well miss you, Eadie! @Andrew65 @Crazeedi — am I right? (edited) 3y
Crazeedi @gradcat yes that may be correct, never considered that 3y
Andrew65 @gradcat Shouldn‘t have agreed to the contract if he had no say! @gradcat @EadieB 3y

I almost never read #crimefiction, but I was sucked into this novel simply by reading the first paragraph. I had received this book as a donation for my Little Free Library, and I was just looking through this book. Eight chapters later, I think I know why Lee Child is such a popular author! 😃

Leftcoastzen I need to get back to this series, think I‘m on the 6th book🤔 3y
SqueakyChu @Leftcoastzen Do you like all the books? My husband read four of the series, but stopped midway in two of them, saying he lost interest in the stories. Should they be read in order? 3y
Leftcoastzen I like to read them in order , there was one of the five I didn‘t like as much , but I want to try to get to 6 soon. I get the impression that you don‘t have to read them in order, yes , there is some background you get on him in each one but the story seems to come to a conclusion in each book . Maybe someone has read more of them could chime in . 3y
SqueakyChu @Leftcoastzen I like the writing so I think I‘ll just try to follow them in order for as far as I get. Child has written so many books in this series! 3y

This is the first book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. Fairly good, easy read but a bit dragged out in places and chunky at 524 pages (paperback edition). This is the first thing I've read by Lee Child other than a Jack Reacher short story in the 2018 The Best American Mystery Stories anthology.

The story line is very clear throughout the book and it doesn't venture off of it on tangents. I cant wait to read the rest of the novels and learn more about Jack Reacher. I wouldn't say that it was a fast paced novel it is quite a slow book that gradually builds up the details needed for the ending.

This is the first Jack Reacher novel, and it shows. Not as polished as the later novels but it set up the Reacher character and works brilliantly. It‘s not essential to read these novels in order but this is a must read if you want to read the series. Child almost makes me want to try the hobo life.

Found the first Jack Reacher book in the library app, and decided to see what the popularity is about. I'm finding it hard to adjust to the narrator. He reads in a drawl, a bit staccato, like a list. With stress on nouns and the final word like it's almost an exclamation. "I was Arrested in Eno's DINER. At 12 o'CLOCK. I was eating EGGS and drinking COFFEE. A late Breakfast, not Lunch. I was wet and Tired after a long Walk in heavy RAIN." ?

The book has twist and turns throughout. I have to admit to putting the mystery together at the same time as Reacher. A fact I am very proud of. For those that don‘t get it Child leads you to the conclusion along with the other characters. You almost have to deduct the solution for yourself. A factor I loved, if only more writers used this technique. For the full review please see my website
