Publisher's Summary

A gripping thriller from the get-go, the 21st novel in Lee Child's best-selling Jack Reacher series is a prequel, taking us back in time to his US Army Military Police days circa 1996. Fresh off a successful mission in the Balkans, he's commended with a medal but then mysteriously receives new orders. He's about to be sent back to school.
In the morning they gave Reacher a medal. And in the afternoon, they sent him back to school.
Night School takes Reacher back to his army days, but this time he's not in uniform. With trusted sergeant Frances Neagley at his side, he must carry the fate of the world on his shoulders in a wired, fiendishly clever new adventure that will make cold sweat trickle down your spine.

Really Disappointed

I've read all of the Reachers as hardbacks and love them. Formulaic in places but isn't that what fans find most comfortable? Reacher doesn't change for anyone and he's a great character for it.

I have started listening to the books now and have been enjoying the performances on the whole. Jeff Harding normally gives excellent character performances and of course breathes life into the main man where Hollywood has failed.

I'm afraid I disagree with some other reviewers here in that I have had to stop listening because of the poor performance. The character dialogue is fine but the narrator sounds like he's reading the story to us for the umpteenth time because we have failed to understand all his other attempts. His voice sounds exasperated and slightly irritated and this phrasing and intonation is repeated for sentence after sentence.

I'm now so aware of this that I miss whole chunks of the story because I'm thinking about the way it's being read. Maybe it's just me and Mr Harding is right to be irritated!

I'm going to buy the book in paper form and try again with the story - who knows, it could be the way it's been written and actually does read like a long forensic report.

Planning for the worst, hoping for the best!
