    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 ...

    This is F Paul Wilson s first young adult novel This is also our introduction to the young Jack who will become the famous, or infamous, Repairman Jack Part supernatural thriller, part mystery Repairman Jack and the stories of the secret history of mankind form the structure of Nelson s epic I was pleased to see that this YA novel would stand on its own and that it works terrifically as a teen mystery The story also hints at the supernatural secret histories behind Wilson s novels and introdu...

    This book left me mixed on multiple fronts I m not exactly sure why because any explanation I provide is thwarted by my own actions.JACK SECRET HISTORIES, also called simply SECRET HISTORIES, is about Repairman Jack, the younger years As in his teen years Before we ever see him in THE TOMB The story follows Jack, Weezy, and Eddie as they discover in the New Jersey Pine Barrens a strange stone pyramid box While they try to unlock the mysteries of the box, they discover in their town a cult, a cult whose members are strangely dying off As with all Repairman Jack books, there is happening around the mystery than the obvious And there is a mystical connection throughout all the events.The book was entertaining and good so why am I mixed on it First off, it is a young adult book Nothing wrong with that by itself but it does tend to mean that the action and violence is muted On the other hand, I ve already purchased not yet read DEFINITELY NOT KANSAS and FAMILY SECRETS, the Nocturnia young adult series that Wilson co wrote with Thomas Monteleone However, I have not purchased SECRET CIRCLES and SECRET VENGEANCE, the final two parts of this trilogy Also, SECRET HISTORIES does have lots of events and Easter eggs tying in to Jack s future, events and tie ins than I could pick out Some of those things I knew I should know ...

    It s good but it s so illogical that all this happened and jack conveniently forgot That and you could make a drinking game out of the use of the phrase secret history Enough we get it Imagine if you watched alien resurrection and they kept name checking the title thru the movie It s annoying and silly.dissapointed that the author ended the jack series so poorly and then wrote this unbelievale prequel stuff When wheezy s...

    I d recommend this quick read for fans of Repairman Jack fiction, and any fans of adventure tales Secret Histories has just a hint of the sci fi and fantasy that are coming in later Repairman Jack novels kind of reads like a Hardy Boys paperback.
