Would you listen to Conspiracies again? Why?
Yes. I love sensible Jack having to go undercover as an alien abduction "experiencer" to solve his case. The truth is so much stranger than anyone realizes.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Conspiracies?
When the Christian woman makes him hold a cross in his hand to prove that he is not in league with the Devil and it takes every ounce of self-control that Jack has to not roll around on the floor and pretend to be in extreme pain. I love his boyish sense of humor.
What about Christopher Price’s performance did you like?
When the narrator does good, I get so caught up in the story that I don't even think about their performance.
Any additional comments?
Great series. Start with "The Tomb" and keep going. Thank you Audible for bringing all the Repairman Jack series to us loyal members.

I Jack has "lost me." I recognize and appreciate Wilson's imagination, but Jack has lost his sense of humor ... and all connection to reality. This story has several cons I can't get past:
1. Very violent. Yes, I know they've all been violent, but this one seemed to go into overdrive.
2. Waaay too many coincidences. Wilson got away with them (IMHO) until this book. I experienced entirely too many "Wait... what?" moments.
3. I get that these books are dark, but this one is unrelenting. Jack's sense of humor is gone (it's the only way I can describe it.) This book takes itself VERY seriously.
Then... it just ended. There was no conclusion - no tying up of loose ends - no sense of completion. It just stopped. And when I thought, "What am I willing to endure in order to find out what happens next?" the answer was, "Nothing."
Repairman Jack is a great character whose potential is squandered in favor of boogymen and blood.
