THE FIRST OF A TRILOGY OF REPAIRMAN JACK PREUELS Read for the first time Jack's formative years You'll meet his mother and father big sister Kate and his bully of a bro. As far as boys adventure stories go this one is top notch Adults will probably prefer something a little sophisticated but REPAIRKID JACK SECRET HISTORIES is sneaky in the way it steadily engrosses you despite its obvious YA limitations and contrivances F Paul Wilson does a fantastic job of simplifying his writing style for young readers while still respecting their intelligence My only real complaint is that the constant stream of references to 80s American culture becomes grating after a while Fans of REPAIRMAN JACK will be happy to know that this book retains many of the dark supernatural elements of Wilson s other novels Be warned though the story here is not self contained If you want all the answers you re going to have to continue on to the next couple installments
