Compulsively readable.--The Wall Street Journal

Don't pick up this] Jack Reacher novel if you don't have some time on your hands, because Worth Dying For is difficult to put down. . . . Child manages to get an amazing amount of suspense into the novel.--Associated Press

There's deadly trouble in the corn county of Nebraska . . . and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it's the unsolved, decades-old case of a missing child that Reacher can't let go.

The Duncans want Reacher gone--and it's not just past secrets they're trying to hide. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they're just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world. For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that's bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.

A model of suspenseful storytelling and an outstanding addition to a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers.--The Washington Post

Still the thinking man's action hero, supreme butt-kicker and smartest guy in the room.--The Seattle Times

This series is about as good as pop fiction gets.--The Miami Herald

   Great, easy read
A big fan of Reacher. In real life, a lot of what Reacher does to get himself in and out of a jam can't fall into place, but he is a great guy to root for. He's too bug for that, and he's not the favorite. He believes in the American way and justice. He believes that if you hurt the weak, you should pay. He' ll see to it that happens. Reacher helps the weak in this book. Helping people is like Reacher's sense of smell. Reacher rushed in to save the day when he heard about a woman in need. Reacher can't help but sympathize with the fact that he's sticking his nose in to someone else's business. If you start with 61 Hours, you will have a better context for some of the characters and Reacher's journey. You don't want to put the book down once you start reading. You are hooked for the rest of your life.
   After you've read it, buy and listen to it on DVD. A whole new prospective.
The book can be read on the device. It was bought on DVD again. I travel a lot and sometimes it takes me a while to get there. When you listen to books on DVD, the time goes so fast you can't believe you' re there already. Travel books on DVD are the best way to go. Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels are captivating, entertaining, and enjoyable for those of you who enjoy realistic adventure novels. They should be recommended highly. Have read and listened to it. I ordered three more to listen to.
   Another good Reacher thriller
Jack Reacher thrillers like Worth Dying For are always good. I' ve read six Lee Child's Reacher books and have enjoyed all of them. The one this time was no exception. Good characters and a good plot. When another writer creates an excellent product, I love it. I will be reading more of the Reacher novels.
I haven't read this book in a long time because it's small. As Amazon had some credits, the idea of using the Kindle came to my head. I bought it and read it in one day. It was interesting and I was surprised by the end. The parts of it that were funny were new to Lee Child. It was a good read for me and I recommend it to any of Child's followers. I have some Lee Childs books from the thrift store that I will use again.
   Hard to Put Down
The Jack Reacher novel was hard to read. Jack comes upon a farming town in Nebraska that is being controlled by evil people. Their transgressions surpass greed and abuse. Jack is alone in a place where homes and buildings are miles apart. He has a lot of people looking to kill him. How does this man do that? The author injects a bit of humor and irony into the situation.
   Picks up where 61 hours leaves off
Lee Child's Reacher stories are page- turners and this one is no different. After 61 hours, Reacher finds himself in the middle of a cornfield in Nebraska dealing with a small community of people cowed by bullies. Each is its own novel, like all other Reacher novels. You don't have to read 61 Hours to enjoy this story. I decided to read all the Reacher books in chronological order, starting when he was in the Army. I have a lot of time on my hands, and these books are a great way to pass the time. I'm looking forward to the series coming out.
   Easy reading, exciting, very enjoyable
When Reacher arrives at a farming village dominated by an evil family, he buys some very valuable goods imported from Thailand, but they are kept secret until the end of the book. Reacher helps the village to get rid of the evil family. He's left hitch- hiking for some other adventure in a future book by Lee Child. Reachers ability to harm and kill other people is disgusting.
   Tedious and Gratuitous Violence
I have never read a book by Jack Reacher. I found many parts that were too wordy and short. The way Reacher kills seems excessive. The state police never became involved in this story. Neither against the villains nor against Reacher for his string of violence, even if it was self- defense. I think this is the first and last Jack Reacher book that I will be reading.
