Okay, so here's the thing. I absolutely love the character of Jack Reacher. He was created by British author, Lee Childs. Lee has written 18 books and they all feature Reacher.

Reacher is one of my favorite fictional characters. The guy is huge, 6'5-250 lbs, blond hair, big hands, big feet, big body...big everything. The dude is like a house - a huge house.

He's also gruff and not at all slick. He lives off the grid, buys his clothes and underwear wear from thrift stores. Wears them for a few days, then throws them away and repeats the process. Reacher says 'It's easier and cheaper t...
