Read Secret Histories A Repairman Jack Novel

Ere's plenty of foreshadowing of events that were to overtake Jack as an adult ie An Secret Histories Kindle old woman with a dog making herself known to Jack when he's just fourteen. I love the Repairman Jack books I especially love the three books detailing Jack s first years in NYC which mostly did away with the supernatural elements to the core Repairman novels I just sort of liked the back to basics crime aspect And frankly F Paul Wilson had become a better writer by then Here are the newer Repairman Jack stories where Jack is even younger The year is 1983 and young Jack goes into the New Jersey woods with childhood pals whose names I didn t care enough about to remember Only that the girl reminded me of Lydia from Beetlejuice and her brother was there to be dumb cowardly and give us probably a realistic idea about how kids in real life would probably be in such a situation Look I know this is a YA novel but I m reviewing it with the same standard as I would anything else YA doesn t mean it has to be dumb and predictable That s pretty much this book in a nutshell I got this vibe like F Paul Wilson decided he d dull his approach to this project and not be called out on it because you know for the kids But why would any kid bother reading F Paul Wilson in the first place if said kid didn t want to be treated with the same respect as he d treat an adult readerThat s ultimately the problem I have with this project It s basically just your standard Scooby Doo type thing Scooby is useful here to compare how different our culture is now to back in the early 70s Back in the 70s the gang was a fairly eual team Except for Shaggy and Scoobs both seeming stoners Fred Wilma and Daphne each brought a euality that contributed to the whole Today Fred is portrayed like a privileged white jock with this Leslie Nielson obliviousness while Daphne and Velma do the real work That s or less what F Paul Wilson gives us here except there s just Jack and the brother and sister neighbors he has known most of his young life The sister is uite literally a mix of Daphne and Velma Wilson describes her on the one hand as not uite beautiful and not a moment later Jack acknowledges to himself the pull of her allure and intelligence In fact it turns out she has a considerable amount of charm after all haha Surprise Jack isn t portrayed as being oblivious or dumb to the extent that the brother is Wilson explains the reason Jack has sht between his ears my description not Wilson s is only because Jack has two jobs and his ignorances is presumedly for the purposes of the story The sister knows a heck of a lot about a lot of things it turns out It s like in a lot of movies and books these days where characters have an alarming number of esoteric skills you wouldn t expect people to have It s glibly explained in most screenplays with I have brothers Or Uncle Jimmy served time what do you want Or I don t know how to boost a car because I m brown you racist I paid for Harvard as a repo man My favorite is probably the most plausible I wanted to be a magician as a kid I didn t get all that far into this book I gave it time than it really deserved I feel like if you lower your expectations just because of its intended audience then the book is probably patronizing that audience Which is how it feels in books like this when the female characters aren t allowed to have flaws the way males are allowed Boys can be goofballs but girls always have to be super smart and brave They re never afraid I think editors encourage writers to approach it this way to add positive role models to the culture From my point of view that seems likely to backfire You remember how boys were meant to grow up to be John Wayne Never meant to cry or admit mistakes How d that turn out
