This week on the Book Blogger Hop we are to pick a character from a book we’re currently reading or have recently read. I’m in the middle of The Hard Way by Lee Child.
Which lets me slip this under L for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Yeah I know cheating a smidge and getting a 2 for 1 here.
I really enjoy these thrillers though staring the character Jack Reacher. Jack is a former MP, tall, dark, and handsome. What’s not to like? Okay that’s from a girl’s perspective. For all readers Jack Reacher offers intelligence, awareness, a deep pocket, and a knack for finding himself knee deep in a situation.
He doesn’t just use his brawn and prowess with weapons to get though the ordeal. Jack uses the mental skills he’s developed over the years as well as his muscle. He’s got a rough edge but underneath you can see a man with heart enough to stand by someone in need.
Lee Child has a great writing style that keeps me turning the pages. Jack has a few entanglements with the ladies here and there but these books aren’t about romance. They’re about the mystery and thrill. I look forward to more Reacher books. A strong character to keep a girl warm at night.
