Comments Jack Reacher's Rules

  • Bookish Indulgenges with b00k r3vi3ws

    As an ardent fan of Jack Reacher, I know all about his rules. But if you haven’t discovered Jack Reacher’s world yet, you are missing out something great and you have no clue to what his rules are. It’s simple really. As an ex-Military Police, Jack Reacher has vast experience in his life. Ever since he has dropped out of that career choice, he is impossible to track and that’s the way he wants it. But the rules he lives by are what actually makes the man what he is and capable of doing t [...]

    A fans guide to the the character Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.I have read all the Jack Reacher series and have enjoyed most of them so I almost felt compelled to read this character guide. I have to confess that I found the book rather boring and it did not tell me anything I didn't all ready know about the character.Maybe better for new readers to the series or the real anoraks but I would not recommend it otherwise.

  • Gloria Feit

    The first thing you should know about this slim, wonderful book is that it is not a novel, something that is immediately apparent, but is instead just what it states it is: A compilation of Rules fashioned by Jack Reacher, the iconic protagonist of 17 books by Lee Child, as well as a new eponymous film, and culled from all those novels.All “rules” included will be familiar to the many fans of Mr. Child’s creation, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t bring smiles of recognition, and p [...]

  • Sammy Marshall

    This was an odd take on Jack Reacher. It wasn't a traditional book. It gave me a lot more things to think about when I read it. It didn't have a plot, however it was more of a quick read that delved deeper into the life of Jack Reacher rather than one of his many misadventures.

  • Ed

    Not impressed. Lee Child should be ashamed, but he's probably laughing all the way to the bank. This book is filled with Reacher quotes, but not one is annotated. It would've been much more of a fun read being reminded that the quote came from One Shot, or on of the other dozen Reacher books. Kind of lazy if you ask me. I'm glad I checked it out from the library! And on a related note, I will NOT be going to see the Reacher movie. I mean, Tom Cruise as Reacher. Really? One thing you'll never hea [...]

  • Lee

    A small half hour read on how Reacher, lets the reader know how to stay alive - live with only a toothbrush in your pocket - and live off the grid. Some funny comments.

  • Joey

    I was excited when I found it but disappointed when I read it. Not much to it. Ok for bathroom reading.

  • Kaye

    List of rules that Jack Reacher lives by. If you read the books you know most. Would not have bothered except to read except it was combined with other Reacher short stories. Only for Reacher fans.

  • Jim

    Never read more than a couple of chapters of these books. Read this in a half hour, as it's sort of a self-help book for Walter Mitty. Mostly macho as you'd expect but without any camp value, and a couple of false notes (a military man of great austerity takes an eleven minute shower? the M-16 is a "weapon of choice" of the military? starting a fire by placing furniture in the middle of a room?) a few things were useful or food for thought:open the windows of a car before you use it to ram somet [...]

  • Thomas Edmund

    Lee Child does an intro to this piece. In retrospect I wonder if it was actually written for this book, or just transcribed from an obscure interview.The book largely consists of bullet-pointed 'factoids' that at best are inspired by Jack Reacher. We get the occasional quote, but the worst flop is the 'things Jack Reacher would never say' the humour of which misses the mark so thoroughly it seems ironic there is a page devoted to making the 'perfect shot'Perhaps worst of all if you read through [...]

  • Alain Burrese

    “Jack Reacher's Rules” featuring an introduction by Lee Child is a simple little novelty book that is fun for Jack Reacher fans. It's not a novel, or even a story. It's a quote and trivia type of book based on the character and the novels that Lee Child has written. In it you'll find things like rules for hitchhiking - Set up base on a significant interchange, stick out your thumb, and smile among others.It's a quick read that is fun if you've enjoyed the Jack Reacher series. It is a hardcov [...]

  • Rabid Readers Reviews

    I love Jack Reacher and normally I love Lee Child's writing but this book was just bad. Common sensical "rules" like "Never sit with your back to a door" interspersed with randomish implied quotes from the series. It was bad, it was boring and it was not worth the price paid. I was already looking somewhat askance at Mr. Child for his endorsement of a fan fic writer poaching on the Reacher series and producing what I'll kindly call bad characterization and plotting but this may be the nail in th [...]

  • Chris

    This book is not really a story, but a collection of quotes and rules that Jack gives throughout the series.While it was fun to guess which book each quote came from, this isn't really a "sit down and read" type of book. It is more something to keep on the coffee table or peruse periodically.I made the mistake of getting it on CD and listening to one quote after another became stale pretty quickly. I may get the physical version some time.

  • Chris

    Hard to rate. There is great stuff in here, but no new stuff in here. It is a collection of all the rules that Reacher has stated or thought in all the books. So you've seen all this before. It's fun, it is entertaining, it is a really quick read, but it is nothing new. I'm glad I didn't spend money to buy this.

  • Kristi, A Book Fanatic

    Lee Child must have needed some $ bc this book was a waste of space. No new info and just same ole from the books. Not cool LC!

  • Sue

    Witticisms taken out of context. Much better in the books. A lot of these just don't apply to mere mortals.

  • SmarterLilac

    Pretty good for a fan fiction-y discussion of an unforgettable character. I couldn't help but notice that the book hasn't exactly been, er, censored in case any aspiring criminals want to use it to bolster their chops. (The writers of Burn Notice, by contrast, admitted they always skip a couple of steps when the main character is, say, breaking into a warehouse, so his moves can't be copied by delinquent-types.) The whole thing makes Reacher intriguing, even to readers who prefer the classics or [...]

  • Paula

    I am a big fan of the Jack Reacher series so I felt compelled to read this - didn't want to let there be anything in the series that I hadn't read. Unfortunately it was a waste of time. It's one thing that there was no story to it, but none of the little blurbs or comments provided any thing new about Jack Reacher that you didn't already know.

  • Christopher Hunt

    A quick fun readIf you like the Jack Reacher series then this is a fun, quick and easy read. One of those books that is ideal if you need to kill time but are likely to be disturbed. Not recommended if you've not read the series.

  • Nathan

    a collection of sayings from the Jack Reacher novels. It was interesting but the best part was it was short. If you have read the reacher books you have already read this book.

  • Janet Cline

    Reminds me of Gibbs!!!

  • M

    Must have been published as a holiday gift ideaIf you enjoy the novels, this is nothing like them. Glad to have checked it out of the library for free

  • Larissa

    Some good advice, some great advice, and some highly questionable advice, at least for those of us stuck to our possessions.

  • Susan

    Plot's a little thin. ;-) But it was a quick read once I actually sat down and read.Some fun quotes. I recognize some.

  • Ben

    Already knew em by this point

  • Steven Kempton

    Just read the novels, they're a lot more fun.

  • CJ

    Not rich enough as opposed to my expectation

  • Ashwin Dongre

    This is a suplimentary reading for Jack Reacher fans. It is a compilations of rules and some other facts as understood and followed by Jack Reacher, listed verbatim from various books. As fan you could literally tell which rule comes from which book, some of them at least. Its a fun read, might as been life saver for you in some cases, and in others it might get you in trouble, and some of them totally unhealthy, like his rule for personal air conditioner, if you follow that one, you are sure to [...]
