Every time I think I know what kind of a story an idea will turn into before I write it, I am wrong. I never really know what a story will be until I meet it on the blank page.
For those of us who come to the series at this late date it appears a lot of information about Mr. Reacher has already been disclosed and the reader is supposed to know it. With this limitation a new reader will find this book thin on characterization but heavy on plot.

The title that jumped six spots this week to unseat Gayle Forman's novel is Personal: A Jack Reacher Novel by Lee Child, and it, too, is published by Penguin Random House.
Gayle Forman's If I Stay rounds out its fifth week in the No. 1 spot, after ending The Fault in Our Stars's twelve-week run. In other words, it's been some time since other publishers significantly edged out Penguin Random House titles on the best-seller list.
