Not a Drill

Adians who are planning a hike through some of the last unspoiled wilderness in North America in the dense forests of Maine They part ways after sharing a hot meal and Reacher checks out a uiet town surrounded by countryside serene enough to cool even his ragi. Let s send Reacher to find the well known author who is taking advantage of the devotion of his readers by making a buck tricking them into buying mediocre over priced short stories This evil author is just the kind of cynical duplicitous SOB Reacher is so often compelled to run to ground Would make a good story unlike this one

Ng wanderlust But not for long First the trail is suddenly and inexplicably closed Then the military police show up in force Maybe it's a drill Or maybe it's trouble the kind of trouble that always finds Reacher no matter how far he travels off the beaten path. Gotta love an easy before bedtime read in one setting novella I actually enjoyed this one than the other Reacher novellas in large part due to the Maine northwoods setting Child did a masterful job of making me feel like I was in the still silent woods on a mysterious hiking trail in the middle of nowhere I appreciated that Reacher didn t have to shoot anyone or even beat anyone senseless in this short tale What I didn t love was that I wanted about the characters who picked up Reacher as he was hitch hiking and about what was actually happening out there The build up was much satisfying than the very uick conclusion and I wanted pages to flesh things out This would have been a great start to a full length novel because it left me wanting but I ll be surprised if these provocative folks show up again Too bad

In this short story from Lee Child Jack Reacher is again on the move But even a pleasant hike on a beautiful summer day turns into a walk on the wild side and perhaps something far sinisterJack Reacher is on the road hitching a ride with some earnest young Can. I think Lee Child wanted to write about virginal Canadian woodlands so he penned this uickie More on that laterYou re probably familiar with Jack Reacher the character by now if not via the books then probably through Tom Cruise s movie version My wife would watch an in house tech vid on widget production if it starred Cruise so I ve seen the 2012 Jack Reacher movie a few times by proxy It just plays in the background as part of an all disaster andor zombie flick marathon looped forever while she sits on the couch her command center getting the editing done and admin work caught up on her wedding photography business Brain candy movies are the best background noise for the work environment And as far as I can tell that s what this Reacher stuff is brain candy That ain t a bad thing Having heard all about these books and skimmed a few I thought I d test the waters by dipping my big toe in the shallow section So far not bad I didn t expect much after all Not A Drill is essentially a long short story and there s not much time to get a time to get much done in a mere 50 pages As mentioned before in this one Child spends much of his time describing a primeval Canadian forest The descriptions are so lush you can almost smell the clean verdant air I love a good hike in the forest so I was all right with the very little action that takes place in Not A Drill Almost nothing happens There s a mysterious lock down on the woods as the military moves in and tries to move everyone else out Reacher can t help himself He just has to stick his nose in there and find out what s up This was a nice baby step into the series I ll gladly take another
