No Middle Name

(Jack Reacher #21.5)


Lee Child


No Middle Name is another book which has been sitting on my iPod for some time.  So long in fact that if I knew it was a series of short stories I had forgotten.

I am not a fan of short stories and this was not an exception.  The only good thing about it was the first few stories focussed on the Reacher boys and provided me with, again perhaps forgotten background information, regarding their army careers.

In my biased opinion, No Middle Name commences well with one or two good stories.  However, from there on each story seemed to become shorter and less interesting until a twenty-minute track contained a beginning, middle and ending…of sorts.  In fact the second last story lasted a whisker over six minutes and thirty seconds.

Three stars is my best rating for short stories.
