    1 thought on “The Last Rakosh

    1. Heard about the Repairman Jack tales for several years and was eager to read this one as a sample. Enjoyed the character of Jack and the story in general and would be seeking out more of the same but for one annoying habit the author has.Doesn't like pronouns for some reason. Writes a lot of sentences without them. Now and again, to lend immediacy or urgency, it's a good technique. Gets old, though. Developed a sensitivity to it.Had to dock The Last Rakosh a star for it.Otherwise, a rousing good [...]

    2. I've read a lot of F. Paul Wilson's stand-alone work, but I still had not read any of the Repairman Jack series, so I thought this novella would be a quick read to familiarize myself with Jack. It was! In fact, it was too quick! This book is really short, even for a novella. Also, the author decided to use a lot of sentence fragments that are great for building action but went on long enough to become distracting. Not my favorite FPW book, but oh well. Nobody's perfect, I suppose!

    3. This is a short story/novella that first appeared, in F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack book: All the Rage. As such, it can be dissapointing for those that purchased this thinking it to be an original short story. I also do not recommend that anybody start with this as an appropriate introduction to the fantastic Repairman Jack series (even if you do encounter it as a free download). The characters aren't developed completely and it certainly doesn't give much of a clue as to what RJ is all about. [...]

    4. Think I had the short story version of this rather than the novella. It was free on . I've only read one other Repairman Jack novel, and as it turns out, it was the one where the Rakosh first appeared, so that worked out. As a short story this one didn't really do much for me. There wasn't anything wrong with it, but Jack just wasn't Jack much. He's obviously tough, and willing to do what's necessary, but I if I hadn't read a Repairman Jack novel before this, I wouldn't really have gotten much o [...]

    5. I read The Keep and the two books that followed it some years ago. When I saw this for free, I figured I'd give it a go.For a story that takes place in the midst of a larger series, this was pleasantly accessible. I'm sure there are extra layers here for long-time fans, but it functions quite enjoyably as a stand-alone story.Even more, it works to make me want to re-read those books again and check out the Repairman Jack series that this is a part of.

    6. Riveting from start to finish.Repairman Jack is as real as any character has ever been, and larger than the pages he's written on. He takes us with him through every breath, living the story right along with him. We dread the inevitable encounters but can rest assured he will prevail - a true modern day hero.

    7. Beware the Sharkman. Eh, left a lot to be desired. There was no depth to the characters what-so-ever. I understand this is part of a series, but it can stand alone. It's a bit suspenseful, but nothing that held me on the edge of my seat. The ending was the best part for me.

    8. It was probably a mistake to read this story at this point, without knowing anything about this Repairman Jack character. It is obviously an epilogue to a novel featuring these Rakoshi creatures, and does not work as a standalone. And it might have spoiled the novel for me

    9. Novella in which Jack finds one of the Rakosh had survived his torching of the ship they'd hid in, most especially the old who had grabbed little Vicki, Gia's daughter. He ends up hunting the creature after it escapes in The barrens.

    10. Meh.Maybe this looses something by being the first time I've encountered Repairman Jack, but it doesn't inspire me to continue on to any full length books. It really doesn't stand on its own very well.

    11. Having watched 'The Keep', I knew what I was getting into, but was only disappointed by the shortness. I could have burnt through more pages.

    12. Great short-attention-span read that uses an interesting tale to bolster Jack's humanity. Surprised I just found out about this (as an available ebook), and enjoyed it thoroughly.

    13. This was well-written and I liked the main character, so I'll read more of this author's books. It's hard to rate a short story; a full-length book will be easier.

    14. Great continuation of the horror anthology edited by F. Paul Wilson, FREAK SHOW. Wish I could find that book or that it was reprinted or as an e-book.

    15. The cover intrigued me but I never really got into it. One good thing is that it is a quick read with only 94 pages. Maybe I'm not into novellas.

    16. This was quite good. I'll be reading more Repairman Jack stories.Those Rakosh are some real badass monsters!

    17. Good punchy story. Decent action but still advances Jack's story, plus some good character development for one of his adversaries.

    18. When the "monster" wins, it almost always makes for a delightful read. I'm quite liked the fact that there is a last rakosh.

    19. It's all right for someone who has read several books in the Repairman Jack series but I would not recommend it for first-time readers of aforementioned series.

    20. Don't quite stand on its own -- it's a sequel to earlier tales -- but it's easy to get into and deeper than you'd expect for a short tale.

    21. Very short story. Jack finds a Rakosh, tries to kill it. Does he succeed? I wonder if this will feature in "Nightworld"?
