One Shot - review

I thought this was a good mystery and enjoyed reading it. I got a little caught up in the abrupt sentences and all the details. Lee Child just went on and on in the details, things that we really didn't need to know and I ended up skimming through alot of pages because of it. I think it would have been a better book if it had been shorter. I could not make up my mind on Jack Reacher, he doesn't seem to be the typical hero. Most of the time I was deciding if I liked him as a person. A point in his favor is that he is very thorough. What did you think?

I didn't mind this book - it wasn't my favorite Jack Reacher - but I didn't hate it either. I kind of like Jack, because he's such an "off-the-wall" hero, but also I guess I've read enough of Child's books to be used to his style of writing (he's very detailed). I'd suggest reading another Reacher novel before deciding whether or not you like or hate him.
