Make Me (with bonus short story Small Wars) by Lee Child Book Summary


ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Suspense magazine • Stephen King calls Jack Reacher “the coolest continuing series character”—and now he’s back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child.

“Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” That’s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.

Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way—right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.

Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher’s rule is: If you want me to stop, you’re going to have to make me.

Make Me (with bonus short story Small Wars) (Lee Child) Book Reviews

DisappointingI've read them all. This was my first disappointment. Way too wordy as if adding pages..Score: 1/5

Make MeA very very good read!.Score: 5/5

Not His BestI love the Jack Reacher series but this one was too bizarre. Not a good read..Score: 2/5

Grim, But an Excellent ReadThe plot behind this struck me as unusually grim, but what I especially liked the book for was that Reacher was showing some damage from all the punishment he has taken over the years, which is more than realistic. The end hints that the next book might deal with some of the consequences from the physical injuries he has dealt with over the years, and I look forward to that. My choice for a movie version of Reacher is Jim Caviezel. He's got the size and charisma, and he's play ingredients a character very similar to Reacher on Person of Interest..Score: 5/5

Really?Not his best effort by any means. Too many implausible scenarios. Not as creative or as clever as LC used to be..Score: 2/5

Ghostwriter?I have read all of the Jack Reacher books and have enjoyed them all except for this one. It seems like someone was given a list of important facts about Jack Reacher to be sure to include and then someone else wrote it. Very disappointed as I have loved this series for so long. My husband is a Reacher fan too and I told him not to even bother. Please get back to the real Jack Reacher!!!.Score: 1/5

Make Me by Lee ChildThis is another in a long line of Jack area her books penned by Lee Child. Most of them are of the lone stranger who blows into town, see injustice, fixes it according to his own sense of justice, but this one is different. Not wanting to spoil it, the plot doesn't give away the crime until near the very end and it true Jack Reacher style, it's a crime against humanity. Jack solves it in his own unique way, but I think Lee has reached a new high in his writing as far as hiding the true story and it keeps you guessing right up until the action has you in its clutches and you can't stop! A great story and I think it's Lee's best to date!.Score: 5/5

Expected more from the authorFirst book I read from Lee, I expected more from this author the book was by no mean bad..Score: 3/5

Make meIt's too gruesome to read without getting nightmares. I'm never going to read Lee Child again..Score: 1/5

Make MeHave read all the Jack Reacher series. This one is not his best. Lacks much of a plot and not enough attention to plausibility. Probably done with these..Score: 2/5

Make MeJack Reacher is the best. I never tire of reading this Lee Child series. I just wish they came out more often. Great book..Score: 5/5

Enjoyable Formula Series AdditionThis book joins the previous 19 or so installments of Jack Reacher. He stumbles onto a complex evil caper, collaborates with a female member of the law enforcement community - always attractive in Reacherland - and of course they get it on. Some drawn out fight scenes where Reacher analyzes each possible movement in a 10 second encounter for what would probably take 10 times the duration of the fight.....but if you liked the prior tales, you'll like this one too. I just keep coming back for more - and still find these formulaic tales good entertainment - albeit not terribly cerebral..Score: 4/5

Make Me will make you want more!Reads quickly, because you can't put it down. Reacher is at his best. Always a twist or turn where you don't expect it. A must- read!.Score: 5/5

Quite the taleChild outdoes himself with this Reacher outing, which is further out in the middle of nowhere than usual locales. No shortage of villains — the Big Bad going nameless, only identified by hair and jeans. Intricate plot with no shortage of twists and turns. Neither Reacher nor the reader knows what he’s ultimately up against until the very end, which makes for an engrossing tale..Score: 5/5

Dud from the startWhat can I say other than if you buy this book start reading around chapter 45. The beginning chapters were so odd I had to make myself read the rest. The action is an all time low the story line was strangely written but the ending what not what I expected. That was the only excitement I noticed. Come on Lee this was not even remotely close to being up to your normal standards..Score: 2/5

Wait until cheaperI have read every Reacher book. I think I paid $14.99. Wait until it is cheaper, you'll thank me..Score: 1/5

Not GoodVery unpleasant, grotesque ending. Wish I hadn't read it..Score: 1/5

AgreeI agree this book is not the best but not the worst. Quite interesting and exciting novel for me. Recommend to read if you like Jack..Score: 4/5

Not the best, not the worstFor the first time we are able to calculate Reacher's age, which, if he graduated West Point at 21 in the class of 83, puts him at 54 years old. A little old for this stuff, don't you think? I cannot figure out how women keep sleeping with a guy who wears no deodorant and changes his clothes every four days. And she let him into the car after being full of mud and in a hog pen. Story was interesting, took a turn I didn't expect. I've read all the books, but the last few are not high on my favorites list..Score: 3/5

This book just rambles!I have never wrote a review before but I had to on this one. I can't believe Lee Childs wrote it. The sentences are never ending. I counted 112 words in one sentence. I'm pretty sure my English teacher would have given an F on that. If I would have this book first of the Jack Reacher series, I would have never read another..Score: 1/5

One of the bestI love the way Mr. Child writes, like slow motion, especially the much anticipated fight scenes. This one doesn’t disappoint. Not for the faint of heart, kept me guessing until the end..Score: 5/5

Make meLove every minute of it.Score: 5/5

ShallowThrown together. Metaphors were overdone and page fillers. Plot anticlimactic. Mr. Child is more often, better than this. It’s a Reacher so read if you enjoy the character and the typical story line but he has better work..Score: 3/5

Make meI have read all Lee Child's books and enjoyed them all. He and David Baldacci are my two favorite authors. Make me made me bored, frustrated at long-winded useless blab blab, and the plot was plain stupid, with an ending that was nauseating. A fiction by its nature is a made up narrative, but still it must have some plausibility. This book was a piece of trash from the beginning to its putrid end. Please, please DO NOT buy this worthless piece of garbage..Score: 1/5

Make MeA great read!! Not sure why others thought this book was boring or disappointing. The plot, characters, and descriptions were excellent. The attention to details made the whole story deep and believable. I think this was the first time I really worried about Reacher's health. Don't listen to the negative reviews. You will love Reacher as much as ever! He will never let the bad guys win. Worth every cent!.Score: 5/5

SighGotta love reacher. Gotta love lee child. But this felt like lee mailed it in. Definitely his voice. His prose. His style. But the middle felt like stuffing. Like he had lost his way. And strangely he took a few stabs at literary grandstanding. I actually felt like child is tired of this story. Even though I think he loves reacher. But how do u turn down this kind of paycheck. Most teachers are a 8-10. A couple got strange. This one lost its way..Score: 3/5

Worst jack reacherI love jack reacher books. They are usually trying on reality. But usually fun to read. This book is absolutely dribble. The plot is silly, most of the action is not just unrealistic but moronic. A lot of boring filler..Score: 1/5

Make MeFirst and foremost, I have loved all the Jack Reacher books so much so that I have read them all twice. This is my least favorite. I loved the interaction with Chang. However, this story seemed too technical and drawn out. I had to concentrate to stay focused on the story. Something was either missing or lacking. I have loved all his other books and will continue to read them as they become available..Score: 4/5

Another great Reacher novel!As a retired MP I enjoy these Reacher adventures. Very well done! Amazing that there are really sicko's out there that get their jollies on seeing others in harms way for their own personal satisfaction and willing to pay big bucks to watch it..Score: 5/5

Not Nearly as Good as Older Reacher NovelsThe underlying premise should have made a good book but way too many shortcuts taken in the story. Very disappointing..Score: 2/5

Took a whileMy first Lee Childs book. Took a little while to warm up to Jack Reacher and once I did and "got" him , as I see him, I really enjoyed the book.

Make MeI have read all of Lee Child's books. I was disappointed by the last one and again with this one. Lots of repetition trying to make the book longer than it needs to be. Character development was poor and weak. Reacher's action was limited and it's the hero in him fighting for the underdog that makes him such a great character..Score: 2/5

Make MeAt the top of his game Lee Child did not disappoint. Make Me is one of the best Jack Reacher novels I have read. Definitely a shocker of an ending and should be made into a movie. Just not with Tom Cruise as Reacher. Cruise is too short and not built the way Reacher is described by Lee Child..Score: 5/5

Make MeHad been pining for another Reacher reading adventure since reading whole series back to back ... At buddies barbershop a customer came in & I saw Lee Childs name sticking out of his backpack "Is that a New one finally?".. Yup... So straight home -and bride did the download version..grr I love my hard copy.( yet nothing gets u to restart reading that I-Pad cracking you in the head reading in bed) This tale was "ok", but rarely created spine tingling suspense as others in collection had. My hope is the next one rekindles the fire, suspense, and cocky action of our favourite ex military superman drifter with a code to intervene with rough justice, when others whither away.Score: 3/5

Why so expensive?I love the Jack Reacher series. I have bought every one, most in print rather than electronic. I must admit I am unwilling to pay $18.99 for an electronic version that I can only read on an Apple device. For that price, they should be mailing me a paperback. So sad..Score: 1/5

Not his bestThis book was a bit off. Jack wasn't himself. I kept thinking that Jack might be not survive the book, that he was getting old and tired and that Lee was tired of writing.
