Jack Reacher Books in Order
Should you read the Jack Reacher book series in order? This is a question almost all fans of Lee Child's novels have asked themselves, including me. Child has said that reading his books in the order they were published is not important, but I have found that reading them chronologically allows one to establish a useful timeline that can be used to identify references to previous scenes and moments. For example, the novel The Enemy will mean more to you once you've already gotten to know Jack Reacher. Being familiar with the main character from the get-go creates an enhanced reading experience.
In chronological order, The Enemy would be the first book to read, as it takes place while Reacher is still in the Military followed by Night School. The Affair would be the next book to read, as it covers the end of Reachers Military career, and leads into Killing Floor. After that, all books would go by the order that they were published. Jack Reacher is the lead character and the protagonist in the series of books by British author Jim Grant who writes under the pseudonym of Lee Child. The books in the series follows Reacher as he goes through a number of exploits in his world.
There are only a handful of references to previous stories and some books have no references at all. So if your reading style is chaos, then go for it. As for me I like publishing order or chronological order. Hi, this is great to see the order of the books in two ways. I usually follow the publishing order because it shows the progression of the writer. Why do you prefer publishing if the series is out of chronological? Thank you.
