Re: The Book thread.
Yeah, Reacher's supposed to be a 6'5 stoic badass. I don't hate Cruise as an actor or anything but I think hes completely wrong for the character.
It would help reading The Enemy (which is chronologically the first book/6 years before Killing Floor) and Without Fail before tackling Bad Luck & Trouble to help with some of the supporting characters but its not essential I suppose. Just read Killing Floor before anything else that isn't The Enemy or The Affair. Kind of a major spoiler in that one that gets brought up quite a bit in later books. Oh and Rush and I agree Die Trying is kinda junky compared to the rest of the series. Enjoy though.
