Welcome to Reading!


This is our first book review ever!  Are you as excited as we are?  Probably not, but that’s okay.  I, Stephanie, read several books last weekend and the one that stood out to me was Lee Child’s “Nothing to Lose.”  Although I have known about Child for a long time, I never picked up one of his books.  But I was hit with a book craving last Friday and just happened to be in Target where the only book I hadn’t read was his mystery novel, which happens to be new in paperback.

This book is action oriented.  Jack Reacher is a man of few words, but makes his mark on society by not backing down from any challenge.  In “Nothing to Lose” you meet Reacher in the midst of his quest to hitchhike from Maine to California.  You meet up with him as he is traveling to Hope, Colorado.  However, the town next to Hope is Desapair and where Reacher decides to visit, simply because he can.  When he arrives, he is arrested, and charged with vagrancy and then kicked out of town.  Reacher’s antennae go up and he determines to figure out why Despair refuses to allow visitors.

I enjoyed this book, mainly because Reacher has several philosophies in which he lives by that make his life more interesting.  Don’t worry, I won’t tell you what they are.  This book is age appropriate for any mature 14 year old, but it does present some ethical and moral challenges within the last third of the story.  There are some vague sexual references, but nothing and graphic and about two dirty words.  Overall, an enjoyable read.
