I'm normally a sucker for a Jack Reacher novel. I've read most of them now and naturally jumped on this one when it popped up as an Audible recommendation. I've always loved this character walking alone and with his own strong sense of honour and justice . . . if not law!
Child sent him further afield than is typical, possibly to add some spice via unusual locations for him but to me this one didn't quite work out. Reacher seemed more restricted and out of his comfort zone to no great dramatic effect.
It's Jack Reacher so it's good, just not as good as usual!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Story line needed more work. Overall needed more action and violence.
Would you recommend Personal to your friends? Why or why not?
No, out of all the Jack Reacher books this is near the bottom.
Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, consistent performance.
Could you see Personal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No. Definitely not Tom Cruise.
Any additional comments?
Jack Reacher needs to die. What a fantastic book that would be.

I have enjoyed Jack Reacher sagas before, but this one did not engage me at all. Jeff Harding did well to put energy and some urgency into his reading of it, but even that could not rescue this book. Despite being tempted to ditch Personal, I limped on but the end did not redeem it.
