Description

THE FIRST NOVEL IN LEE CHILD'S #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING JACK REACHER SERIES—SOON TO BE A PRIME ORIGINAL SERIES!

“From its jolting opening scene to its fiery final confrontation, Killing Floor is irresistible.”—People

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

    Definitely a page-turner. Great character in Jack Reacher. Lee Child’s continues to be an author of note for this genre.

    I like stories that are believable and have a have a good balance of violence in the action. This book does not go overboard, but cross Jack Reacher or hurt someone he likes, and things might get a little warm.
  • Distractingly inaccurate

    I don’t expect every author to be a firearms expert, but if your main protagonist has a long term military history and exceedingly large portions of the book are gun fights, you should have a basic handling on the physics involved. The author not only describes impossibilities but does so repeatedly using the exact same language. I only finished the book because it came so highly recommended, by half way I’m not sure what offended me most; the way lazy repetition abused the English language, or the insultingly ignorant way firearms and “military experience” were used.
  • Too Many Disgusting Scenes

    If you have zero experience with the military, law enforcement, or the justice system you might find this book tolerable. Every time the author mentions the military he gets it completely wrong. From what MP officers do to how duty stations change. It’s as if the closest he’s ever gotten to any of his subject matter is simply reading other poorly written beach books. Badly written and completely lacking any credibility - this book is a dud.
  • Wow.

    you can suspend disbelief when it comes to implausible leaps of "logic", ridiculous coincidences, etc. still, not too bad, and the series does get better (except for Echo Burning)... but, Tom Cruise as Reacher? Seriously?
  • Waste of time

    I truly enjoy the Jack Reacher series. I believe I've read them all. This one, his first, I read last. This book is implausible, so full of ridiculous conclusion, segues, false information and sophomoric mistakes, it is best left unread. Move forward in the line a few and start the series there.
  • Would love to read but iBooks screws it up
