Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher

I’ve been grinding my way through Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series of book. Most recently finishing One Shot (Reacher #9), which is the point in the series where the movie Reacher was based upon. I have yet to see the movie, but this much is clear; no way is Tom Cruise a big-screen characterization of Reacher.

I’ve pictured a Die Hard-era Bruce Willis merged with Jason Bourne era Matt Damon. Both of whom still don’t fit the 6′ 5″ stature, but about as close as you are going to get to with Hollywood.

I’ve been enjoying the books. I’m sure I’ll have finished the series by the time Reacher hits consumer rental market. Will be interested to see how it stands up.

If you want more about what I’m reading, here’s my 2013 reading list.
