4.0 von 5 Sternen Advice for those people influenced by the negative reviews!
As a Lee Child fan I am surprised by some of the negative comments in these reviews. Before you read Die Trying (or any of Lee's books) please be warned : THESE BOOKS ARE FICTION! If you want factual accounts of FBI procedures, read an FBI manual. If you can't handle coincidences in a novel, how the hell do you function when they occur in reality? Die Trying is a...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Uneven pace, thin plot
I enjoyed Child's first book, Killing floor, quite a bit. I therefore had high expectations for this one. Unfortunately, those expectations were, for the most part, unfullfilled. The book started out intriguing enough, with lots of action and suspense, but started to deteriorate and get crushed under its own weight halfway through. For the most part the scenes with...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Advice for those people influenced by the negative reviews!, 23. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
As a Lee Child fan I am surprised by some of the negative comments in these reviews. Before you read Die Trying (or any of Lee's books) please be warned : THESE BOOKS ARE FICTION! If you want factual accounts of FBI procedures, read an FBI manual. If you can't handle coincidences in a novel, how the hell do you function when they occur in reality? Die Trying is a thoroughly enjoyable action thriller, a work of FICTION. Jack Reacher is a tough-as-guts, intelligent FICTIONAL character. For the love of Pete, loosen up, people!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Eine Reacher, wie wir ihn lieben!, 10. September 2010

Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Jack Reacher, gerade 14 Monate nach seinem Ausscheiden aus der Army, hilft einer Frau auf dem Weg aus dem Waschsalon. Nur schade, dass sie unmittelbar danach Opfer einer Entführung wird und Reacher gleich mitgekidnappt wird. Die Reise im Laderaum eines kleinen Lasters geht bis nach Montana. Die junge Frau, der Reacher helfen wollte, ist FBI-Agentin und es stellt sich heraus, dass sie zudem noch die Tochter des obersten Generals der Army und Patenkind des Präsidenten ist. Das FBI, aufgrund der schlechten Bildqualität der Überwachungskamera des Waschsalons, geht davon aus, dass Reacher ein Komplize der Entführer ist. Nun geht sie wieder los, die wilde Jagd nach den Bösen und diesmal auch nach Reacher.

Die Geschichte entführt uns diesmal in die dichten Wälder Montanas zu einer durchgedrehten Sekte, die die Unabhängigkeit zu den Staaten erklären will und zudem einen großen Anschlag plant. Reacher steht diesmal hier und da kurz vor dem Dahinscheiden ("die trying", halt). Was wäre Reacher, wenn er dort nicht irgendwie herauskäme und in seiner unnachahmlichen Weise wieder aufräumt.

Etwas langatmig sind hier und da Beschreibung, wie denn die Gewehrkugel den Lauf verlässt. Da blättert man schnell weiter, um zu wissen, ob sie denn nun auch trifft. Ansonsten treibt Lee Child die Handlung wieder voran. Gerade zum Ende hin wechselt er zwischen den einzelnen Handelnden abschnittsweise hin und her und schiebt den Leser quasi zum großen Finale.

Interessant fand ich, dass sein ehemaliger General und Freund, Leon Garber, im Spiel ist. Er ist ein genauso harter Hund wie Reacher - allerdings doch mit etwas mehr Gewissen -. Es wäre toll ihn mal in einem anderen Buch als handelnde Person wiederzufinden. Nur dies bleibt uns leider verwehrt.

Alles in Allem wieder ein tolles Buch des lonesome cowboy Jack Reacher, der weder falsch noch richtig, weder schwarz noch weiß kennend seinen Weg gerade bis zum Ende geht. Für Reacherfans ein Muss (leider hier und da ein paar - aber wenige - zu lange Beschreibungen technischer Vorgänge).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Uneven pace, thin plot, 21. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed Child's first book, Killing floor, quite a bit. I therefore had high expectations for this one. Unfortunately, those expectations were, for the most part, unfullfilled. The book started out intriguing enough, with lots of action and suspense, but started to deteriorate and get crushed under its own weight halfway through. For the most part the scenes with Reacher, and Holly were interesting enough, but these were alternated with scenes involving the FBI and military characters which were somewhat dull and redundant at times. Those characters were very boring and those scenes were unnecessary in many cases. And the bad guys were just plain stupid. If they had any sense they would have simply killed Reacher, either when they kidnapped Holly, or at the very least when they brought him back to the camp. However then there would be no story, so Reacher is allowed to live and wreck havoc on the villans. And Reacher himself, while interesting, is a little too perfect, he knows all, sees all, and can do anything. There is still some decent action and suspense through some parts of the book though. It just would have been a lot better if it had been cut down, and focussed more on the main characters instead of too much emphasis on the supporting cast. I'll have to read another one of Child's novels to form a final opinion on him.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The Kirkus review said it all--brain dead!!, 15. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is simply one of the worst books I have ever read. Slack jawed neandertrals in Montana trying to set up a new nation--where have we heard that one before. Ruby Ridge all over. Reacher is your basic comic book Superman and the villains have everything but horns on their heads. I love the several passages where Child takes about 2 pages to describe the one second life of a bullet from the time the trigger is pulled until the time the bullet splatters the villains brain all over
northern Montana, including the gases inside the barrel, the effect of the rifling on the bullet, etc.etc.Also the fact that cameras in planes 7 miles up can not only see people on the ground, but recognize their faces. But this technology pales beside the one that allows the FBI lab to take a burned out truck and by scraping mud off the bottom, tell exactly where the truck has been in the US for its entire 7 year life, sort of like looking at the rings in a tree to tell its age. I guess 7 years of rain, slush, cleaning, etc, would have no effect on these mud layers which Child treats pretty much as if they were fingerprints. I realize crime labs are getting better all the time, but GIVE ME A BREAK

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jack Reacher the Hero of the 21st Century., 18. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
Die Trying is the sensational sequel to Killing Floor by Lee Child. If you haven't read Killing Floor I would recommend doing so before you read this book as it provides a basis for Reacher's character realism. As before the main character is Jack Reacher, ex military policeman and all round superhero. Reacher is intelligent, deductive and physically prodigous, so if you like heroes of the elite variety then this is the character for you. If you prefer cardiganed librarians and lack the ability to suspend disbelief (an essential criteria for FICTION readers) avoid this book as the storyline is astounding with a capital ASTOUND. Lee Child has produced a book that captivates and ensnares its readers with suspense, intrigue and a plot with more twists than a bowl of particularly tangled spaghetti. A man mountain of a psychopath, a beautiful FBI agent with more secrets than the FBI itself, moles galore and the president of the United States, all come together in the valleys of Montana, in a literary feast. If that isn't enough there's even a spot of romance (but not too much). All in all a book for those of us who believe in a world where heroes do exist.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Worst book I have ever read, 8. Mai 1999
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
This is without doubt the worst novel I have ever read. Why I finished reading the book is beyond me. I had to grit my teeth and go for it. Too bad you have to choose a star rating. Zero should be an option. The events in the book had no realism whatever. Just one of many examples: Beau Borken murders a number of people in Montana. There is absolutely no reaction and no knowledge of anyone that these murders took place. No wife, no relations, no friends. No one cares. There is also no characterization. Every character is exactly the same. Each character speaks the same, right? And the complete stretch engaged in by the author to save Jack Reacher from commitment to a woman (undoubtedly to save him for future use) passes the border of ridiculous. The only benefit I received from this book was knowing that I will never read any books by those authors that supposedly gave the book a good review. My copy of the book is now in the trash where it belongs.

2.0 von 5 Sternen All good sense overboard!, 8. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
This book in fact has good pace, but the problem is that all else seems to have been thrown overboard in order to achieve that. First off, good, sensible plot development - there are just far too many coincidences: why the hero just 'happens' to be next to where the woman is snatched, why the baddies don't get rid of him earlier (he's six-five, menacing and with a serious attitude problem!), etc, etc. And any character depth also goes out the window, particularly the baddies: they're all just a bunch of faceless, interchangeable morons who wave guns and shout dumb orders. Fast pace, but overall you can't help feeling this is just the book version of a rambo movie: seriously insulting to the intelligence.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Sad product by author with great potential., 19. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Child has great potential as an action writer but lack of proper research and too many coincidences destroy one's abiltiy go along with the story. Example: Most FBI agents have not carried .38 revolvers with speed loaders in many years. Child needs to either educate himself as to all his facts or have someone who knows law enforcement and military facts edit his work for accuracy. "Die Trying" also had a very weak plot even though well written. He could be a great writer. I will not purchase another of his books until I see strong evidence of improvement.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good adventure series shaping up., 31. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
Jack Reacher is a good protagonist, and no less believable than Dirk Pitt, James Bond, etc. Any action adventure takes some willing suspension of disbelief as well the ability to accept coincidences. That said, I have become a Reacher fan. As in "Killing Floor" he gets in the wrong place at the wrong time and is considered a bad guy by other good guys. Using whatever resources are at hand he presses on and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I did think "Killing Floor" a stronger read, but look forward to this series continuing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cover to cover, 28. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die Trying (Jack Reacher) (Taschenbuch)
Lee Child has me hooked. After "The Killing Floor," I felt compelled to read "Die Trying." I'm glad I did. It's a great book, and I love Jack Reacher. The nice guy, who's not like the guy next door. It's a truly interesting story, and I read it from cover to cover, which I rarely do with books. Can't wait for his next, "Tripwire"
