    Repairman Jack, F. Paul Wilson’s vigilante hero first seen in the New York Times best seller The Tomb, returns in a thriller that thrusts Jack back into the weird, supernatural world that he thrives in. Looking for clues to the mysterious disappearance of leading conspiracy theorist Melanie Ehler, Jack attends a convention of bizarre and avid conspiracy theorists. It’s a place where aliens are real, the government is out to get you, and the world is hurtling toward an inevitable war of good versus evil incarnate. Jack finds that nobody can be trusted - and that few people are what they seem.

    Would you listen to Conspiracies again? Why?

    Yes. I love sensible Jack having to go undercover as an alien abduction "experiencer" to solve his case. The truth is so much stranger than anyone realizes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conspiracies?

    When the Christian woman makes him hold a cross in his hand to prove that he is not in league with the Devil and it takes every ounce of self-control that Jack has to not roll around on the floor and pretend to be in extreme pain. I love his boyish sense of humor.


    What about Christopher Price’s performance did you like?

    When the narrator does good, I get so caught up in the story that I don't even think about their performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series. Start with "The Tomb" and keep going. Thank you Audible for bringing all the Repairman Jack series to us loyal members.

    Can you imagine a new chemical compound, a nonaddictive designer drug that heightens your assertiveness, opens the door to your primal self, giving you an edge wherever you compete, whether on the street or the football field, in a classroom or a boardroom? Wouldn’t you be tempted to try it...just once? What happens if it releases uncontrollable rage and makes you a killer?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book and series to anyone who loves a strong leading character who doesn't follow anyone's rules but his own.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All the Rage?

    When Jack tells the hunters that they might not be at the top of the food chain anymore in the "Pines".


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Price – was your favorite?

    I love Abe as the stereotypical Jewish shopkeeper.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Drugs made from a demon. Not in Jack's town.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Jack's fixes are rather brutal and not very clever in this book.

    The Overlords appeared suddenly over every city - intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior to humankind. Benevolent, they made few demands: unify earth, eliminate poverty, and end war. With little rebellion, humankind agreed, and a golden age began.

    What made the experience of listening to Childhood's End the most enjoyable?

    It had been 10 years since I last read this book. Even though I knew how it all turned out, it still was disturbing. It is one of those books where the credits roll (We hope that you have enjoyed this presentation from Audible) and and I am still sitting there trying to sort out the thoughts and feeling I am experiencing from the conclusion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Childhood's End?

    When the ships take their positions over the major cities. This is the original. I always think of the movie "Independence Day". This is where it started. Actually, it first came out in Clark's short story "Guardian Angels" a few years earlier.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When we can hear Karellan's thoughts as his ship leaves the solar system and he watches the sun getting smaller and smaller.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, but I showed restraint and knocked it out in two days.


    Any additional comments?

    On some print versions there is a qoute by C.S. Lewis that say, “There has been nothing like it for years; partly for the actual invention, but partly because here we meet a modern author who understands that there may be things that have a higher claim on humanity than its own survival.”
