      Holy crap. I am running away with Jack Reacher. I don't care if I never get to wash my clothes or eat regular meals.

      Number 20 in the Jack Reacher series and one of the best out of all of them! This Jack is slightly different from the usual and I wonder if Lee Child is planning on letting him have a relationship and stay in one place a while in the next book. I very much enjoyed his interactions with Chang and laughed aloud several times at his humour. I also liked his intelligence. Sure he still takes on three thugs at a time and wins but he also plans and strategises and works things out. I thought this book [...]

      Yes! Now this is a Jack Reacher book. Everything the last book wasn't. It starts with Reacher getting off a train in the small town of Mother's Rest. He's curious about the name and thinks he might spend a day or so there, checking out any local museum, getting the story from the locals, etc. But this simple decision has him stepping into one of the darkest mysteries in this entire series, one that doesn't become entirely clear until 30 or so pages from the end. The book is filled with the minut [...]

      Pity poor Jack Reacher. It's like the guy can never get even ten minutes to himself to relax and enjoy life before he stumbles into some grave crisis that only someone as talented as Jack Reacher could ever hope to sort out and set right.In this case, Reacher is riding in a train through the vast heartland of America, on his way to Chicago. He wants to get to the city before it gets too cold to enjoy it. Out in the middle of nowhere, though, the train stops in a little town called Mother's Rest. [...]

    5. Mackey St on said:

      Perhaps I have grown past Lee Child in this genre but I suspect it has more to do with the fact that once I loved Jack Reacher as described by Lee Child. I loved that he was a vagabond, someone who disliked the military for what it had done to him, someone who hated guns and didn't look for trouble but it always seemed to find him anyway. Now all I see is Tom Cruise, runt. The direction of Child's books seem to be leaning toward a character that would fit Cruise rather than Reacher's persona and [...]

      The 20th book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. Having read and enjoyed the previous 19 in the series it was inevitable that I would read this one. All the books in this series have lots of action and this was no exception. A decent story and the book kept me interested throughout but never quite hit the heights of some of the previous ones. I think these books are my guilty pleasure, they are not that well written but good fun.

    7. Brenda on said:

      I proudly admit, right up front, that I am a genuine, card-carrying Reacher Creature. I will follow Reacher wherever he goes. I will read all future books and see all future movies. This book did not disappoint. Right from Chapter One, Reacher is in trouble, even though he doesn't know it yet. The story and the characters are meticulously rolled out, and the full final explanation of what was really going on just blew my mind.

    8. Alex is The Romance Fox on said:

      Make Me is the 20th novel in Lee Child’s iconic Jack Reacher Series. Having been slightly disappointed with the last couple of books in one of my favorite series, I was looking forward to this latest addition. I have grown to love Jack Reacher since I read the 1st book in the series… a military cop-turned-drifter, who travels around America, the only possessions he has with him are a toothbrush and his ATM bank card….owns no house, no car… material possessions expect as mentioned the two [...]

    9. Michael on said:

      Child is a guilty pleasure for me. How to account for my spouting pacificism and bemoaning our violent human nature and at the same time being enthralled with Reacher’s vigilante spirit and no qualms about killing people he finds deserve killing? The formula takes a man who drifts around the country in “off-the-grid” mode, lets you get drawn with him into helping someone in trouble, in the process slowly uncovering a major criminal conspiracy from the smallest of clues, and then after some [...]

    10. Andrew Smith on said:

      I like this series. Jack Reacher was a army cop, until he left under dubious circumstances – he’s not a man to get on the wrong side of – and now he travels America with no more than a credit card, some id and a toothbrush. When he needs a change of clothes he ditches what he's currently wearing and buys new. And he's big, very big. If he sees a wrong he rights it. To the uninitiated that's about all you need to know. In this, the twentieth book, Reacher exits the train at a small town in [...]

    11. Kamilla on said:

      The only way I can think of doing this review is by writing it in two parts. Here is the first:What was good about the book:Well Reacher of course. He is his old self, although he seems a bit older, and a bit more sexual. Which wasn't bad in itself. His reacherisms made me smile (I have collected a few at the end of this review). So typically Reacher. Also, his way of lateral thinking, his observational skills and deductions were all as we have come to expect and love. His sidekick, Michelle Cha [...]

    12. Donald Grant on said:

      When Lee Child first introduced Jack Reacher, I, along with so many, enjoyed each novel and anxiously waited for the next one to arrive. Reacher was a character that stood for what was right and no matter in what situation he found himself, he triumphed. His handling of each situation was believable and the novels were fun to read. The last few have become formulaic and somewhat unbelievable. Child, like Louis L’Amour, has written one story over and over. In Make Me, I knew what was going to h [...]

    13. Alan on said:

      Jack Reacher hooks up with a private investigator to locate a missing person. Actually three missing people. No. I take that back. There are four missing people. In the search, Reacher and the PI must venture into the Deep Web, the hidden part of the Internet where criminals and hackers abound. It's a very nasty place.As for the plot, it's gripping, completely novel, and loaded with plenty of plausible twists. And I guarantee you'll never guess the ending. The writing is engaging and tight. The [...]

    14. Brenda on said:

      Jack Reacher decided the stop along the train line called Mother’s Rest warranted a visit – for no other reason than he was curious as to how the town attained the name. In the middle of fields and fields of wheat, it was a lonely place with no other town or habitation as far as the eye could see. Stepping from the train at midnight, he was surprised to see a young woman in front of him – but she was waiting for someone else; someone who didn’t arrive…Michelle Chang was ex FBI turned p [...]

    15. Sandra on said:

      3.5*I have a slight suspicion that this book was written by someone other than Lee Child. Or part of it anyway.For once, it wasn't mostly written in the staccato sentences usually used in the Reacher novels. Which I hate btw. There were parts that actually had some long, incoherent and rambling sentences, to the point that my eyes started glazing over and I fast-forwarded to the next paragraph. Child also uses repetition quite often. Maybe he needed some fillers to reach the required minimum amo [...]

    16. Susan Johnson on said:

      I eagerly await a new Jack Reacher novel each other. I do have to admit my enthusiasm has waned slightly since Child sold the movie rights to Tom Cruise but I will not beat a dead horse any further. I will just say that it disappointed me. This is a very dark story and the ending truly horrified me. It was incredibly sick and twisted. There was no good vs. bad. It was about evil pure and simple. Frankly, I think it went a step too far. And it made me think it's getting a little tired. The storie [...]

    17. Skip on said:

      Here's a minor revelation: Jack Reacher can be injured and by a single adversary too. Not sure that counts as a spoiler. He alights from a train in Mother's Rest, OK mostly to find out how the town got its name. He meets a retired FBI agent, turned PI, named Michelle Chang, and takes a liking to her and her investigation into the disappearance of a business partner, Keever. Something is not right in the town, and they track down a L.A. writer and a source in Chicago, who thinks he has discovered [...]

    18. Kyle on said:

      One of the better Jack Reacher books. Good way to end the series. If this is indeed the last book of the series.

    19. John Avanzato on said:

      Where do I begin? As an avid Jack Reacher fan, I have been anxiously watching one of my favorite authors veer off course now for several years. Beginning somewhere around book fifteen in the series, it appeared to me that Lee Child had not just run out of ideas but that he was probably getting bored. Perhaps, success does this to a man. This book has all the traditional elements of a classic Reacher story but the writing is tired and uninspired as if the author were trying to make a dead-line an [...]

    20. Emily on said:

      I know it's fashionable to make fun of trigger warnings these days, but I think there are cases where they make sense, for example, their (original?) purpose of warning people suffering from eating disorders away from descriptions that could trigger relapses of their behavior, symptoms of the most fatal mental illnesses. In the same spirit, I think part of this book benefits from a content warning, but since it comes up about 80% in, I will put it under a spoiler tag for you to read if mental il [...]

    21. Alafair Burke on said:

      Reacher at his best. Suspense on every page, and I think Michelle Chang might be my favorite Reacher sidekick yet.

    22. Jim on said:

      In my opinion Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are hit or miss. This, the 20th book in the series, is a home run. Reacher is usually found hitchhiking or riding a bus. This time he is taking the train. Destination? A small town called Mother's Rest. "No particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there". Reacher is a curious man and all he wants to know is “Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” He figures maybe there is a museum or a tombstone or someone in town can explai [...]

    23. Eddie Owens on said:

      Solid Reacher.Small town, lone woman, bad guys, ass kicking, ridiculous plot, jet travel round the USA, and Jack kills all the bad guys at the end.The franchise moves on.

    24. Linda Wells on said:

      “Reacher has no particular place to go, all the time in the world to get there, so he steps off a train in Mother’s Rest, a small town hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields. It’s a strange place with watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes Reacher for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have turned lethal.”Former FBi Special Agent turned Private Investigator, Michelle Chang, and Jack Reacher meet by chan [...]

      SWEDISH REVIEWJag hade bara läst den första boken i Jack Reacher serien innan jag läste denna. Men, jag hade inga problem att läsa Tvinga mig som är bok 20 trots att jag har missat att läsa de 18 tidigare släppta böckerna. Det var lätt att komma in i handlingen som både var spännande och fascinerande.Vad jag verkligen gillar är det slumpmässiga beslutet från Reachers sida att kliva av tåget i Mother's Rest som blev startskottet för en undersökning av vad staden, eller rättare s [...]

    26. Jane Stewart on said:

      It’s fun being in the Jack Reacher world.It’s the same story as most of the Reacher books. He is wandering. Something peaks his interest. He stays to investigate and ends up fighting bad guys. It’s not new or different but still enjoyable.One thing bothered me. Reacher is injured and can’t shoot well so he doesn’t dominate the bad guys like I’m used to.I was pleased the author used third person. He’s used first person for six of his twenty books which I don’t like.The audiobook n [...]

      Unul din cele mai interesante romane cu Jack Reacher pe care le-am citit până acum, cu un fir narativ care începe încet-încet, dar apoi o ia la vale pe cărări nebănuite, până la un deznodământ care te lasă cu gura căscată. Mai multe, pe Bookblog: bookblog/recenzie/jack-.

    28. Vicki on said:

      In terms of the action, this is a pretty typical Reacher novel. In terms of the subject matter, which you don't learn until you're pretty deep into the novel, it is really, really, really dark. And then it gets even darker. I can't tell you more, but I wish I could scrub all memory of this book from my brain so it doesn't give me nightmares.
