What would Reacher do?

It’s almost Christmas. And apart from watching the Boxing Day test, there’s little else more pleasant than sitting in the shade reading the latest Jack Reacher thriller. Perfect formulaic summertime schlock that helps while away the hours between the fall of wickets 🙂 Anyhow, a recent New York Times article asks a couple of authors for their views on things e-book, among them Lee Child, creator of the Jack Reacher novels. For Child:

“I have found it fascinating how, absent the subliminal clues provided by the visual design of the physical book, one is driven to concentrate on the actual text a little more,” he said.

But would Reacher own a Kindle?

“Reacher wouldn’t — he has no e-mail, credit cards or address,” Mr. Child said. “One of his women might.”
