While I patiently wait for the library to get Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, let me tell you how I became an official Reacher Creature.
Once upon a time, I was bored. It was summer and I was book-less and getting I-don’t-have-anything-to-read-twitchy, so I decided to try a random title from the bestseller section at the library. That book was Lee Child’s 61 Hours and it was my introduction to Jack Reacher.
Fast forward a couple of years when the internet rumors started about a possible Reacher movie. By then, I had plowed through the whole series to date, started following Child on Facebook and signed up for his newsletter. I was definitely interested in all the movie details. Then they announced Tom Cruise as Reacher. Now if you are also a fan, you probably balked at that casting choice like I did.
Cruise doesn’t fit the image of book-Reacher, but I don’t find him completely off-putting, so I watched Jack Reacher. I’ve watched it a couple of times since then, and even though I’ll watch them, well, when it comes to Reacher movies, I’ll be sticking to the books!
