Oh how I love the Jack Reacher novels. He’s the man!
Here are two pearls from the book I’m currently relishing:
“By definition, all suicide bombers are first-timers.”
“I like rats. They don’t bite sleeping babies’ faces for the fun of it. They’re tempted by traces of food, that’s all. Wash your kid’s mouth before you put it to bed and it’ll be OK.”
However, I dumbfounded to learn that Tom Cruise is to play Reacher in a forthcoming film. FFS – Reacher is 6 ft. 5 inches tall and weighs somewhere near 250 lbs. It’s like hiring Tom Thumb to play the giant. 😦
