100 Must-Read Thrillers (International Thriller Writers)
I bought this book because I read that the Repairman Jack series is similar to Lee Child's series. Well, I can see the similarities, and looking forward to reading further books in the series (when Audible makes them available). I don't think the plot is as good as in lee Child's books, though. It became pretty clear how everything will turn out a few hours before the end of the book. Still, the action sequences are good and Repairman Jack character is quite appealing.
Ienjoyed this book. It was my first F. Paul Wilson book and I am looking forward to getting the rest of the Repairman Jack series. Very exciting and moved well. Hurry Audible --- get the rest recorded! :)
this is an enjoyable book with a gritty likable anti-hero as the lead character. Fun and fantastic twists and turns keeps you interested. Very good reading as well
A fascinating story in an unexpected setting???the author does a good job tying an old Hindu curse to modern day New York.
Even though some of the retrospective chapters might get a bit boring, there is enough action to keep the listener engaged and on edge.
It???s only a pity that the next stories in the series are not available on Audible, as I really wanted to listen to more of Repairman Jack???s adventures.
Not sure how I missed this series, but glad a friend recommended it recently! Good story, well developed characters (that you can actually care about), and very well paced, never a dull moment! Won't give anything away, other than to say I give this book my highest recommendation! Also worthy of note is the excellent narration by Joe Barrett - he may be my favorite narrator now, very reminiscent of the late, great, Frank Muller - and that is the highest praise I could give any narrator! Can't wait to start the next book, though I see Mr. Barrett is not the narrator this time around, too bad - will be listening to some of his other work in the near future!
The most memorable moments of The Tomb was when Jack was on the ship getting vicki back.
YES!!!! This book was so good I couldnt fall asleep because I wanted to listen to more of the story.
This book is in the same caliber as the dresden files! And I loved the dresden files!
Great story, well written, fast paced, and characters I came to care about.
The plot, while fiction and rather "dark," was just realistic enough to be mesmerizing. I loved how over the course of the story we learn just enough about "Jack," to root for him when he needed it most! Jack is a "soft," "tough" guy -- as you listen to the story you'll understand this description of him better. I had never heard about this author or his series of books about Repairman Man Jack, by luck of the draw I decided to give this book a try. I assure you I will be listening to every one of his books in this series. I LOVED it.
This is my first time hearing of both this story and it's narrator Mr. Joe Barrett. Mr. Barrett is great and I think his performance contributed significantly to the "life" and "feel," of the characters and the overall story.
Repairman Jack is not for your ordinary tinkering: extraordinary repairs only need apply.
Loved this, will definitely listen to all the books related to Repairman Jack. I love this series as much as I did the "Oregon Files."
Marlowe meets Dresden
The story had few lulls and those were necessary to flesh out the characters, I found myself wanting to warn the characters to be careful. It was fun to hear the banter between protagonist and antagonist and Wilson did not leave the "villain" 2 dimensional but gave us peeks of a man doing what he thought was right regardles of the consequences.
Joe Barrett did an excellent job in presenting Repariman Jack
On the top ten. So high up on my list that I have decided to purchase all the Repairman Jack books. Jack is an amazing guy. I feel like he is about to become one of my best friends.
It is fiction based on past events. I am old enough to remember most of what happens in his book.
Neither but then I am not too emotional.
I did not read the book, only listened to the audio. I find some stories more intriguing when the characters can be heard through the narrator. Some books I prefer to read but not this series as the narrator is excellent. I have actually missed out on some good reads due to poor narration.
I actually got into this series by accident. I received the new Kindle for Mothers day and they offered free books. I downloaded one called the Last Rakosh and wanted more!!
Edge of my seat may be pushing it a bit but all in all it is a great series, well written and does offer some surprises, for sure
The alligator and the dog of course: Dynamite comes in small packages...right?
I was saddened when the pup was considered dead. Still hoping he is not as I have a few chapters left.
Also when Jack and his Father have a discussion and realize they missed out on so much and really did not know eachother at all
I started most of by favorite reads by accident or dumb luck, but The Joe Pitt Series (Charlie Huston) was the first real "Can NOT put it down " series I read. Then I got into Joe Ledger series, by Jonathon Maberry not to mention the amazing series by Peter Brett which started with The Warded Man!! (again dumb luck, but one of the best reads I have ever had) The other series by Mr. Wilson which seems to offer just as much excitement or more and supernatural oddities as the Repairman Jack Books.
