Jack Reacher, character in Lee Child’s books; movie review and book update (61 HOURS)

61 HOURS, is yet another great read by Lee Child! I’ve read at least 12 in the series and everyone is a great read right up to the last page!

The main character and lead main man, Jack Reacher is 6 feet 5 inches tall and knows martial  arts and weapons and is an all around dangerous individual. In the movie, Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise, way less than 6 feet tall plays the  Jack Reacher character!!!!!! I would really have liked to see Jason Stratom be that character!!!!!!

I understand that all of the books have been “optioned” to be filmed so let’s hope they pick a bigger person for the Jack Reacher role!

Don’t get me wrong, Tom Cruise is a great actor but ……………..you know what I mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are just interested and have not yet started reading any of the books, start out with THE AFFAIR. It isn’t the 1st book but the story line starts out here. This is where you learn about the history of Jack Reacher and what happened to create the situation he has lived with for many many years and more about his earlier life.

Lee Childs has also added several “novellas” to the series. These short books as I call them are great reads…………great stories without all of the filler material such as detailed descriptions about the terrain and character background. They really are worth a look and see!

Let me know what you think! Who do you think should play Jack Reacher?
