Never Go Back

Pect is what comes next He himself is in big trouble accused of a sixteen year old homicide And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words ‘You’re back in the army Major And your ass is mine’Will he be sorry he went back Or – will someone else Cards on the table I like Reacher always have but I might be getting a bit tired of reading the same storyI settled in to read the latest offering and at first it was like meeting up with an old friend it prompted a smile of anticipation as I turned the first page albeit electronically these days I like the routine stuff the coffee drinking the luggage load of a toothbrush and nothing the alarm clock in his head and all the rest I like the clinically linear way the stories are told Even when the tale is told in the third person as this is the reader is essentially Reacher for the few days it takes to live through the latest adventure There is no trickery no clever sub plot waiting to confuse or over tax the reader All this is good to an extentSo what didn t I like about this book It boils down to a couple of things1 I guess like all Reacher fans I ve worked out that the story will essentially be a simple one with one or two elements left to resolve when we reach the denouement tying up a few loose ends and making sense of all the bad behaviour essentially I don t think there s anything intrinsically wrong with that but on this occasion I did find the knowledge that this was the way it would play out limiting It seemed to put a ceiling on the amount I d be able to get out of this story2 Lately or maybe it s always been this way the stories seem to take place in a very small geographical area In fact a few buildings and a few roads are mentioned and that s about all It s like a stage play with a limited number of backdrops This leads to repetition and I found this frankly boring The limitation itself didn t add anything to the mechanics of the story there was no hidden significance but it did detract from the flow when yet again Reacher walked the same two blocks between the same two buildings and saw the same bus rolling by in the same direction And I realised I d been here before with Reacher and that I didn t like it last time either Another thing with the repetition he introduced a flip of a coin element towards the end of the book that drove me mad Again it didn t add anything it just left me thinking why I m seldom surprised by Reacher these days Actually I m never surprised The books are fun but hardly stimulating It s starting to feel like Lee Child isn t trying hard enough he has a formula that s worked for him and he s sticking to it rigidly However when all is said and done I will be buying the next Reacher book partly because there is something enjoyable about settling down in the company of old friend but also in the hope that Child can re create the pure excitement he s capable of at his very best

summary Never Go Back

E closest thing to a home he ever hadWhy He wants to meet the new commanding officer Major Susan Turner He liked her voice on the phone But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman Why is Susan Turner not thereWhat Reacher doesn’t ex While traveling through South Dakota in 61 Hours ex military cop Jack Reacher had occasion to call in to his old office in Washington DC the headuarters of the 110th MP Reacher once commanded the unit but it now belongs to Major Susan Turner Reacher decided that Turner had a very nice voice and on the strength of that impression he has slowly been making his way in the direction of DC in the hope that she will go out to dinner with himAs this book opens he finally arrives only to discover that Turner has just been arrested His old unit is now under the command of an acting head named Morgan Morgan not only tells Reacher that Turner is in the slammer but that Reacher himself is being charged with two relatively ancient crimes Reacher claims to be totally innocent and to have little or no memory of either alleged incident Nonetheless the acting commander invokes some arcane regulation and informs Reacher that he is now back in the army and under Morgan s command at least until the charges are cleared up Morgan orders Reacher to go to a motel and to then report for duty first thing in the morningAt this point neither Reacher nor the reader has the slightest idea what in the hell might be going on but obviously something very unseemly is in the works Reacher is determined to discover what it might be and so dutifully checks into the motel as ordered As soon as he does two musclemen clearly military me out of uniform arrive at the motel and tell Reacher to get out of town promising that no one will come looking for him if he does and that they will beat the crap out of him if he refuses to do soWell of course no one threatens to beat the crap out of Jack Reacher let alone actually do it and before long the two musclemen are lying comatose next to their car which now has two new dents in the sheet metal from where Reacher has introduced their heads to the side of their ride The next morning Reacher gets up and reports to the unit as ordered which is going to be very bad news for the people who are screwing with himIt wouldn t be fair to say any needless to say the story proceeds as long time Reacher fans will expect The conspiracy at hand is deep and complex and as always Reacher will have to kick the crap out of any number of people who continue to underestimate him in spite of his size He is of course considerably larger and intimidating than Tom CruiseThis is one of the better entries in this long running series and would make a great summer read or any other season for that matter This particular edition also includes an entertaining Reacher short story called High Heat which features a very mature sixteen year old Jack Reacher

    There is such a purity in Child’s formula I can’t resist it All variations on a primal theme of one man against a Goliath of corrupt forces A haiku of nouns and verbs of chase and run the reading of tea leaves

    More like a 35 for me Much better than the last offering this is classic Reacher However after 17 of these books I was hoping for a bit of evolvement in Reacher's character or life position There were glimmers of hope but in the end we're still left with Reacher on his own kicking ass and righting all the world's wrongs I love Reacher but I have to admit that I'm getting just a little bit bored And not having written
