Favorite Author: Lee Child
Lee Child writes Jack Reacher books. Thankfully for all his loyal fans -- "Reacher Creatures" -- he turns out a new one pretty much every year.
Reacher is the prototypical hero. He is big and strong and smart and he drifts around solving unsolvable problems. He doesn't need anything besides his folding toothbrush and a little folding money. (Confronted with the reality of our post-9/11 world, Reacher started carrying a passport and an ATM card in later books -- a stumbling block for loyal readers.) He can calculate the trajectory of a bullet. He can kill a man with his thumb. He's cool.
I have read all but the last two of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books.
The books in publication order are:
The Hard Way
Bad Luck and Trouble
Nothing to Lose
Worth Dying For (reviewed here)
A Wanted Man
Never Go Back
