Book Review- Lee Child- Second Son

Lee Child- Second Son (Dell Books 2012) 3.75 Stars

Jack Reacher is thirteen and his family has just been moved to a military base near Okinawa, Japan. Now he and his brother Joe must adjust and fit in with the kids in the neighbourhood. Jack Reacher will handle them in the only way he knows, with his fists.

The introduction was kind of boring, but it does provide some insight into the background of Reacher’s family. The whole story is great for adding depth to this character and showing where he learned to be the way he is. It was interesting to see how little he has changed over the years. He was a ladies man then and still is. He was a tough bruiser with a great brain back then and he still is. I do find it a little hard to believe that he connected all the dots the way he did. Overall though it was a pretty good read.

  1. I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my brand new monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved – it doesn’t have to be one they just posted about. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved May Edition
