How does this app work? Can you read books on the iPad/iPhone you bought from Sony?

I've posted a review of it on Goodreads.
How can I make it visible from here apart from copy-paste it?

I finished the book last night. It is OK, but I would say it's one of the weakest in the series. Maybe Mr. Child is losing steam...

Lee Child is the interview in this month's Playboy, for those interested. I am a big fan of his books, but knew absolutely nothing about him. Good read.

Yes you can. Bluefire uses a version of ADE so you can register it to your Adobe account and even use it to read library ePub. There is a thread on Bluefire over in the Apple section.

I thought that the fact we call it "fiction" would give it away?

Well, suspension of disbelief has to work even in fiction. I'm not as much a personal critic, as I like this series, but the author's light research does show through.

Did you all know that "Lee Child" is the pen name for Jim Grant? Jim Grant spent his adult life in theater and make believe. The Reacher character performs feats which cannot be duplicated in real life. In one of the novels, the Reacher character is in a kitchen in a house. In the first second Reacher is out of the kitchen, into the attached garage, in the car and has it started. In the next second Reacher has the car backed out of the garage, out of the driveway and into the street. At the completion of the 3rd second, the Reacher character has driven down the road 100'. Not possible to accomplish. Just make believe.
Jim Grant has never been in the military and does not do his research. An example of this follows. Jim Grant was asked who would the Reacher character vote for in the American presidential election. Jim Grant says Reacher would vote for Obama since Obama, as a kid, had grown up in the tough town of Chicago and Reacher would respect that. Obama grew up in a wealthy enviroment as a privileged child in one foreign country and in Hawaii in a private prep school. Jim Grant does not know what he is talking about.

Possible actors for the Reacher character other than the little guy selected are: Ray Stevenson (actor); Chris Hemsworth; Goran Visnjic - this guy was a paratrooper in the Croatian Army!; Hugh Jackman; Joe Manganiello; Clive Owen. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Jim Grant says none were available and the short one chosen is the best actor of his generation. Puhhhlease give me a break.
Alternative, truer to real life and better reading is the character David Baldacci has created, John Puller. The 2 novels so far are "Zero Day" and "The Forgotten".
I will not pay to watch a 5'5" short man play the part of a 6'5", 250lb big man.
totally disagree... i tried to get through that one but found it practically unreadable.
