Killing Floor, The Start of Jack Reacher 

Lee Child’s first Jack Reacher novel, Killing Floor, is the start of the list of many sequels followed. Killing Floor introduces the character Jack Reacher, in the first series and gives a background about him and the type of person he is. 

Killing Floor feels like, it has been written for it to become a movie! And some of Jack Reacher’s series has really been made into a movie starring Tom Cruise and manky of you would have seen it. So coming to the 1st one in Jack Reacher’s series, Killing Floor was the first book I read of Lee Child’s works and I could say that I’m ready to read more of his writings! 

Killing Floor starts of with Reacher, who is an ex-military and was wandering off to random places, gets caught as a suspect in a murder investigation in the town of Margrave. Margrave is a sleepy town which hasn’t seen a murder in the last thirty years. 

Reacher, as a suspect in murder case, turns out to be the person who has a monumental role is solving it. When the number of bodies gets suddenly increased in the otherwise safe town, Reacher discovers that the murders are just the tip of the iceberg in a biggest nationwide crisis, which could shake the entire foundation on which United States economy.  The story progresses into how Reacher along with the help of some locals in the town unravels the scam going on behind it. 

The one thing that I liked about the book, and which is different from the others is the simplicity of the language. In the beginning, I felt like the sentences are too short, but it then turned out to be the real factor to hook me on. There are no unnecessay details and descriptions – just the one which is of utmost importance. And hence, it made the reading more interesting. A hard concept behind the story was made to feel like it is one of the simplest ones, because of the minimalistic and precise writing of Lee Child. 

All together, it was a perfect read on a lazy Sunday, munching on chips and chocolates!

Titbit Thought #20

The world sees us and thinks us to be in a certain way. And so are we a mirror image of what the world wants us to be, or, do we believe us to be living our own life but actually are we making us think we are on our own? 

MY SOLACE – BOOKS!

The type of book doesn’t matter.

The genre of the book doesn’t matter.

The time of reading doesn’t matter.

As long as I curl up, alone, with a book in my hand, I feel complete.

It may seem a bit of exaggeration to some. But, for me, Books complete me.

 

The feel of the book in my hand,

The scratchy noise of the pages turning in the silent room,

The play of the words before my eyes, and

The play of the scene in my mind,

Getting transported to a parallel dimension

Where only me and my book exist.

Books are what I call, ‘My Solace’.

 

If I could keep on writing about my love for books, I could go on forever.That is when I realized that nothing could ever take the place of books in my life. Not a person, not a thing. The loving feeling that fills up my heart at the mention of books, you could think that I’m actually talking about a person! In fact, the passion that I get towards books feels like a personification of an actual person.

Books are what, that made me go through life, and

Books are what, I will live for. 

 

Titbit Thought #14

Perseverance, the time when we use our free will, to work against all hardships posed against us, even though we don’t have anyone to   support us in our endeavors. 

Titbit Thought #13

When we say, we ‘Compromise’, do we really put our whole heart into it? 

We don’t compromise for us, do we? 

We compromise for a person, or a situation, or a feeling. But deep down we all know that we don’t want to do it.
