The plot itself was not so bad. It had a logical flow to it, the story had a good amount of tension, and there were no plot holes. My biggest issue is that I couldn't get into the Jack Reacher character. He just doesn't make much sense to me. How could he go from leaving a highly organized life as a military police officer who led his own squad to some drifter with no home, no job, no money. It's just not a logical progression, and he's not a believable character. He comes off as a bit of a loser. As a result, it was hard to get fully absorbed into the novel. But the story had a strong climax with a good action sequence, so overall I give it a thumbs up.
