Repairman Jack has been tearing up the urban adventure scene ever since he was introduced in the New York Times best seller, The Tomb. Jack has no last name, no social security number, and no qualms when it comes to getting the job done - even if it means putting himself in serious danger.
Hosts starts with a bang when Jack has to stop a psychotic's shooting rampage on a subway car - but there are witnesses, and Jack’s essential anonymity is threatened.
A good deal more is threatened when the lover of Jack’s sister Kate survives a brain tumor, thanks to an experimental treatment, only to join a strange cult called “the Unity”. Now Jack must face a new kind of enemy, a virally-based group mind that wants to take over him, and the world.
If I have to listen to him say Oolio one more time I’ll SCREAM! It’s JULIO you idiot! I love the Repairman Jack series, and have read the books, but decided to give the audiobooks a try. Jack:The Early Year - Cold City, Fear City etc. That guy could narrate a book, and I’d hope to hear him read the rest of the series, but nope, you had to go with this looser! I’m hoping they will decide to hire a new, and more experienced narrator to reread this series so I can truly enjoy it!
Another great book. Loving the series re-read. Fascinating to see the laying of the groundwork.
The series is getting to sifi for me the first two were great sorry to see the change
If you could sum up Hosts in three words, what would they be?
SuperDuperNatural must read
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, It was one of the better books. Not that the series is not all great, it is, but every now and then there is a must read and thsi is one of them
Which character – as performed by Christopher Price – was your favorite?
Jack and Gia. Mr Price has a true talent of using his voice to capture the charactors personality in full
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, they all do
Any additional comments?
Start with the quick read...The Last Rakosh. Even though it is short and sweet, it makes beginning the series that much better
