Praise for Repairman Jack

“Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining.”
—Dean Koontz on the Repairman Jack novels

“Jack stand[s] out from the supernatural pack. The books are about an ordinary guy doing whatever it takes to protect the innocent, and that’s a story that always has resonance.”
—The Chicago Sun-Times on By the Sword

“A canny mix of sci-fi paranoia and criminal mayhem. Bloodline starts fast, keeps the accelerator down, and defies you to stop reading.”
—Entertainment Weekly

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Der letzte reguläre Repairman-Jack-Roman setzt nur knapp zwei Wochen nach den Ereignissen von "Fatal error" ein und im Gegensatz zu allen vorherigen Bänden gibt es diesmal keine Nebenstory, um die sich Jack kümmern muss. Wie auch bei Harry Potter geht es im letzten Band ausschließlich um den Kampf gegen den übermächtigen Widersacher.
Die Schäden des Internetzusammenbruchs sind größtenteils behoben. Jack folgt der Lady in den Central Park und erreicht sie gerade in dem Moment, als vier bewaffnete und vermummte Männer auftauchen und das Feuer auf sie eröffnen. Obwohl die Lady durch irdische Waffen unverletzlich ist, zögert Jack nicht, sie zu verteidigen und zieht dabei ebenfalls einige Verletzungen davon. Allerdings heilen diese ungewöhnlich schnell. Da Glaeken inzwischen recht alt und schwach ist, lässt das nur einen Schluss zu: Jack ist dabei, seine Rolle als Nachfolger anzutreten.
Um Rasalom aufzuhalten, geht er sogar kurzzeitig einen Pakt mit Ernst Drexler ein. Er erfährt vom Aufenthaltsort seines Gegners und stellt ihm eine tödliche Falle. Mehr möchte ich an der Stelle nicht verraten. Nur so viel: Es ist der letzte Band und entsprechend stark lichten sich die Reihen. Schließlich geht es um nichts Geringeres als das Ende der Welt.
Auch "The dark at the end" endet offen und macht den Weg frei zum allerletzten Buch in F. Paul Wilsons Zyklus von der "Secret History of the world" - den bereits vor Jahren erschienenen und inzwischen noch einmal komplett überarbeiteten Roman "Nightworld". Ich bin sehr gespannt, was mich beim großen Finale erwartet.

The beginning of the end 14. Oktober 2011
Von James Tepper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The last page of "The Dark At The End", the 15th and last novel of the Repairman Jack series ends, as it had to, as a rewrite of the prologue to "Nightworld", first published in 1993, exactly as F.Paul Wilson has been telling us for years that it would.

TDATE is a worthy finale to the RJ series, tying together all RJ 15 novels, plus the 3 YA Jack books and various other bits and pieces of the Secret History of the World. It leaves no loose ends. Everyone and everything of principal importance from the entire series is present and most play important or crucial roles. Weezy, Eddie, Drexler, Dawn and the baby, Abe, Thompson, Gia and Vicky, Glaeken and Magda, the Lady, Julio's (one brief mention) the Lodge, the Order, the sword, the pyramid, the Compendium of Srem, the Crown Vic, the whole megillah is here. FPW has somehow, incredibly managed to pull everything together and position pieces that are characters and artifacts from the Adversary Cycle and YA and adult RJ books onto the gigantic chessboard that will be played out in the "heavily revised" re-release of "Nightworld", due in 2012. And he has concluded everything in a compact 336 pages. It really does seem as if FPW has had this gigantic complicated plot line in his head for something like 20 years, and has played each card deliberately and at all times with the end in mind. There are no coincidences.

TDATE is totally satisfying while at the same time igniting an urgent desire to re-read Nightworld. I intend to try to resist re-reading the original copy on my bookshelf for as along as possible, hopefully until the revised version appears, which I will pre-order as soon as possible. I am a little sad that this is it for RJ (except for 3 promised prequels - intermediaries between the YA Jack novels and his appearance in "The Tomb"), but it was a masterful end to a great series.

Highly recommended (but only after you have read the first 14 plus the first 5 books in the Adversary Cycle).

A really GREAT disappointment (read on!) 13. Oktober 2011
Von Derek Grimmell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
5 stars for a review titled "A great disappointment" may seem contradictory. But I mean this book is a great book, and also a little bit of a disappointment. Follow along here, please.

First, this is another great read from one of the most reliable authors around. It's fully as gripping, engaging, and entertaining as any of the past Repairman Jack novels. Jack is still creative in dealing with powerful enemies. He relies on his friend Abe, uses his wits, rolls with unexpected events, and sticks up for the people in his charge even when he's frustrated with them. He also wrestles with the personal changes he is undergoing as an inevitable byproduct of being the Heir to Glaeken. There are a few moments of real humanity, which I thought were well-handled. And Wilson has been elaborating on the back story and putting in various plot threads for some time now. Most of them get paid off in this volume, usually in a pretty satisfying way.

So all of that is the great part. I enjoyed the book all the way to about the last 10 pages. A really satisfying read.

The disappointment part is that, because Nightworld is coming, the book pretty much had to do certain things at the end, and that was a letdown to me. It's not Wilson's fault, nor a discredit to his achievement. Rather, it's the inevitable consequence of writing the entire series as a sort of "middle-quel" long after The Tomb and Nightworld had already been produced. We have known for a long time how the story began and ended. These books had to remain at least somewhat true to that storyline, and the ending was thus a bit of a letdown. If you have not yet read Nightworld, you should have no such problem. I did. Don't repeat my mistake. You have been warned.

Oh well. I can handle it. It's still a really good story arc.

So a GREAT (in caps) disappointment (in lowercase). I don't regret reading it one bit, and any fan of the series will enjoy it as much as I did. I wonder how many will also feel the same letdown at the end. And I'll admit it: I'm just a little bit sad because I know the story's ending. I'll miss Repairman Jack. And it's ironic: if he had a real contact number, I just might have a job for him, today, right here in real life...

An outstanding end to an outstanding series 12. Oktober 2011
Von Josh Mauthe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Ever since the release of Bloodlines, Wilson has warned that the final books in the Repairman Jack series were essentially a "river novel," where the story flowed from one book to the next. The Dark at the End bears him out, wrapping up the previous four novels - Bloodlines, By the Sword, Ground Zero, and Fatal Error - in such a way that it feels like the logical conclusion to one very long five part saga. Any true Jack fan knows the state of things as The Dark at the End begins: Glaeken is exposed, Jack is on the hunt for Rasalom, and one very unusual child has a role to play that no one can quite understand just yet. And, of course, this is the final book of the series, meaning that we have to set the stage for Nightworld. Wilson manages to do all of that and then some, providing a satisfying conclusion to every plot thread that's been going since Bloodlines and still managing to make the book a thrilling, exciting experience on its own, most notably in a series of sequences that occur in a largely deserted neighborhood. It all builds to the finale, which is as inevitable as it is shocking, and it's a joy to see how tightly Wilson has been plotting everything for the past several books. It's not a happy ending to the series - how could it be, with Nightworld still to come? And yet, it's a generally satisfying end to the Jack saga (even though the revised Nightworld will be the real conclusion), as he's learned exactly who he is, what he's capable of, and become the weapon he's been capable of being since the beginning. I was a little saddened to turn the final pages here - I've been reading the Jack books for years, and although there are a couple of other Jack projects to come, including some prequel novels, it won't be like opening a new chapter of this section of Jack's life. But in tying together the last five books with such a satisfying, tightly constructed, and often shocking final book, Wilson has done himself proud. I have a lot more to say, but I don't want to ruin the book for anyone, so let me just close with this: if you're worried if Wilson could end the series in a strong fashion, worry no more. Just be sad that it's come to an end.

Sadly, disappointing. 24. Oktober 2011
Von Michael T. Capone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I've been reading and enjoying F. Paul Wilson's books for a long time now, like many of you, I imagine. THE KEEP was my first, I picked it up when it was released and can vividly recall having the excellent novel in my head as I sat down to watch the underwhelming movie version. Mr. Wilson's latest, THE DARK AT THE END, the " last" in an increasingly episodic, but always entertaining series of REPAIRMAN JACK books, is tasked with drawing together and tying up multiple plot points from across multiple books and short stories encompassing a considerable body of F. Paul Wilson's writing that's come to be known as the ADVERSARY CYCLE. That technical challenge ultimately undermines the story while absolutely abusing the vast majority of its cast. DARK has an oddly mechanical quality, characters aren't motivated inasmuch as they are maneuvered, like game pieces through a track with a definite end, the looming promise of which totally deflating any sense of suspense, any possibility of one outcome, to be honest. I'm looking forward to a satisfying conclusion in the forthcoming, apparently heavily revised, reissue of NIGHTWORLD. Unfortunately, you won't find much of that quality here. My opinion might vary considerably from yours, and I certainly recommend reading THE DARK AT THE END. For those of us who been adventuring with Jack since the days of THE TOMB, this book is pure joy and we aren't likely to have the opportunity to do it again too often.

Somewhat confused and slightly dissappointed 30. Dezember 2011
Von Daryl D. Crowley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've invested YEARS in Jack, one of the most likeable characters in literature. I don't even mind that the Otherness wins (if that is indeed what happens), what I don't like is not knowing what the hell is happening. I hope the Nightworld rewrite brings some sort of closure or at least allows the reader to draw their own conclusions.

We have all been rooting for Jack and hoping that someday he can have a true identity and normal life, but we are left with no way knowing how anything turns out in Jacks current life.

I hope I'm just missing something here that will become clear in Nightworld or I must admit I will be disappointed.

A note to F Paul Wilson: Like a lot of your readers.. all we really ever wanted was Jack repairing things. I like the supernatural, but Jack didn't need it. The tales of him writing wrongs in his clever fashion was always the best part. Later in the series there were NO repairs work done by Jack, just this escalating struggle with the Kickers, who in my opinion were boring characters.

So at least I pray we have some more REPAIRMAN Jack doing what he does so well, and what we all really love about the series.

I think the Adversary angle is good, but it really has just clouded over and laid waste to one of my favorite characters of all time.

Let's hope Jack finds some peace, or at least let us imagine that he does. If I don't find some sort of closure to all this, I will be hard pressed to recommend 15+ books to someone.
