Gone Tomorrow - gone on too long
First know that Gone Tomorrow is the first Lee Child book I have read. It another Child book that features Jack Reacher - a homeless retired military police officer. While I found the context somewhat unbelievable, the plot and the writing was good enough to keep me reading to the end. If it was 50-100 pages shorter, I would have been a happier reader.

Lee Child's books and I have begun a wonderful friendship.
Having never read a Lee Child book before, I thought I would give it a try when it was offered to be reviewed. I was in London in 2005 and was in a bus behind the one that was targeted by the suicide bomb. So when I opened Lee's book and his reference to the bombing I was very intrigued. I became hooked and now his books and I have begun a wonderful friendship.

Another page turner from Lee Child. I have enjoyed many of his books, this one was no exception. Pure suspenseful entertainment. I also learned a few new things along the way. Agree this would not lend itself to a book group. Best just for ones own personal delight in a well crafted suspense novel.

At long last, I have tried out Lee Child and a Jack Reacher novel! I wasn't disappointed in this very tall, loner of a hero or in Child's ability to keep me turning pages as fast as I could. The story pounds along as Reacher makes his way around Manhattan, followed by all kinds of people. I think the inclusion of Theresa Lee and Jacob Mark as slightly more fleshed out characters was good, otherwise, there's just not a lot of time to get to know many of the players very well. I will warn that there are some pretty gritty details as the story swells, but it didn't stem my enjoyment of the book.

Love Lee Child
"Gone Tomorrow" is the 1st book I have read by Lee Child. I loved it and Jack Reacher. Fast fasted and well written. Highly recommend this book. Now have to go back and read all the rest of Lee Child's books.

Lee Child delivers another page turner for his fans. From the first page, the reader is hooked as Jack Reacher identifies a potential terrorist on a 2am subway ride in New York City. As the suspense mounts, Jack becomes both hunter and hunted. I had a hard time putting this down, even as the storyline seems recycled - a testament to Lee Child's skill as a writer.

This is only the second Jack Reacher book I've read..it was decent. Good plotline and kept my interest until the very end. It was a quick and easy read and I'd recommend it to fans of espionage style thrillers.
