As happy as I was to receive the ARC of the new Jack Reacher novel, my disappointment matches. There were many familiar and endearing Reacherisms in this novel, but the small scale of the story seemed to limit the tale. The incidents in the woods were dreary, Ryantown not even a shadow of its heyday. There were good people populating the novel, and that was all the merrier given the bad people in the woods. Reacher had little to do with them, so it wasn't much of a Reacher story until the end. Ultimately Stan Reacher is found. How could a guy named Reacher live in a town until he was 90 years old and yet the name rang no bells at the county records office?I did enjoy seeing Jack Reacher again. I just wish he had more to do that was of interest. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC.
