Killing Floor Lee Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
THE FIRST JACK REACHER NOVEL
The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero”(People) who inspired the hit films Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

User reviews about this book
If you have zero experience with the military, law enforcement, or the justice system you might find this book tolerable. Every time the author mentions the military he gets it completely wrong. From what MP officers do to how duty stations change. It’s as if the closest he’s ever gotten to any of his subject matter is simply reading other poorly written beach books. Badly written and completely lacking any credibility - this book is a dud.
Not bad, if...
you can suspend disbelief when it comes to implausible leaps of "logic", ridiculous coincidences, etc. still, not too bad, and the series does get better (except for Echo Burning)...
but, Tom Cruise as Reacher? Seriously?
Waste of time
By Child's Fan
I truly enjoy the Jack Reacher series. I believe I've read them all. This one, his first, I read last.
This book is implausible, so full of ridiculous conclusion, segues, false information and sophomoric mistakes, it is best left unread.
Move forward in the line a few and start the series there.
Would love to read but iBooks screws it up
iBooks won't allow the book to download, says "item is being modified" for days
Awesome book in every way perfection on paper
By Paul 1959
I was into it from the get go. Very good reading.
I'm not a reader. For me to take the time to read it has to be informative. I have never been a pleasure reader. My brother has read the Jack Reacher series. In conversation I became interested in learning more so as to be able to talk on the subject. I had a full Friday to waste while waiting for a five o'clock appt. in another town. I went to the local bookstore with the purpose of finding the first Jack Reacher book out out. I read for a few hrs at the bookstore, ended up getting the book and read the entire weekend finishing up the 400+ pages Sunday night. It wasn't speed reading either. I was just so into the story I couldn't put it down.
Unexpected and fully engaging
I was not prepared to be sucked in by this series. Now, I'm on novel #4 and still sucked in. Well written cover to cover.
Total page turner. Very interesting story plot with suspense.
