Good. Thank you. I love Reacher’s kick ass attitude. But, I hate it when Child seems to paint anyone from anywhere other than the East or West coasts as a bunch of bumpkins.
Just want to make sure I’m not getting attracted to a guy who can’t keep leftwing messaging out of his prose. Towards the end, Robert Parker’s Spenser books became little more than screeds against whites and straights.
Here, I guess, is my take.
Reacher is a guy who knows, uses, understands guns and their purpose. He doesn’t hesitate to use one on someone who deserves it.
He also loves liberty, freedom, and the right to do what you want, including just walking through the country without being hasseled.
He defend the weak, protects the innocent, and doesn’t cower from those who would harm them.
He takes action where needed but doesn’t butt into peoples business.
Nah, doesn’t sound liberal at all.
I’ve read just about all of them. Usually if I pick up on a bunch of BS I just put them away until I get more liberal in my outlook. I have some really really dusty books.
I guess I never saw that bias - he does occasionally have a small-town sheriff character, but there’s also always a “good guy/gal” in the same mold, it seems. I like the novels, they’re a good 2 plane rides when I go TDY.
