    Read Jack Reacher for ages, huge fan but don’t have my books with me as my friend from home borrowed them before my deployment :/ would be great to have here with me! + the cruise would be a dream, to relax and spend time with my mum after my deployment! Miss her! Thanks 🙂

    I love Jack Reacher books. What a character. And this is one sweet contest!

    Lee Child is a Literacy God, Jack Reacher is like a modern day equaliser!
    Looking forward to reading Night School under the Med sun xxx

    Jack Reacher, new book and movie coming. Amos Decker & Bill Hodges can’t hold a candle but still amazing in their own right!

    A lot of people freaked out at Tom Cruise playing Reacher. Tom is a great actor, so much so that a few moments in, you are riveted by the man’s performance, not his height. Really looking forward to the next film. Why not turn all the books into films ? Thanx for Reacher Lee, keep them coming.
    Regards, big Gordon the Biker.

    Always waiting for the next Jack Reacher. A book once lifted not to be put down

    Can’t wait for the next Reacher book. Awesome reading. Keep them coming.

    Reacher is a terrific modern day hero and his adventures are always a pleasure to read. Looking forward to the next one!

    I am so in love with Jack Reacher, so what a let down when Tom Cruise played him in the film. Not Lee Childs fault I know that

    I hear you relative to Cruise, but, thought he nailed it. In my humble, age has been kind to TC, he looks and acts like a man now.

    Read every book you have wrote and always have the next on order with amazon Kindle.

    Discovered author Simon Toyne very similar to Lee but not the real thing.

    My wife and I met a woman last year on holiday in Greece; she was just about Lee Child’s greatest fan. Later that year we met Lee Child at the Harrogate Crime Writers Festival and he wrote a lovely inscription in one of his books for her.

    Adored by women and envied by men Jack Reacher is fabulous

    Love reading about Jack Reacher’s adventures and would be delighted to read on a Mediterranean cruise!

    Only just discovered the Jack Reacher books and hope to be reading one when I discover the joys of cruising!!!

    Looking forward to the next novel which l understand is out in November …can’t wait…..always a very good read can’t put it down and like to read again and again
