C. J. Box has started a good series with the Joe Pickett character. I'm interested to see where it goes.
Box is no Clive Cussler, but someday I hope he gets to that level.
The good thing about this book is it keeps your attention and the story is easy to follow. It's perfect for a good road trip.
I'd recommend Open Season for its interesting characters and setting, but I kept wanting to push the reader to speed it up. I think he added an extra half hour just by his laid-back pace.
If you like to be surprised, this one isn't for you, except for the ending, which was quite satisfying for anyone who doesn't mind violence.
Not unless I hear a noticeable uptick in his reading speed.
I'd be happy to spend more time with Joe Pickett and his family, but I don't think there's much more to add to the Open Season story line. I'd certainly enjoy learning a great deal more about the life of a game warden in Wyoming.
I use Audible books to lure me out of the house for a two-mile walk every day. Despite my dissatisfaction with David Chandler's reading speed, he and the interesting story got me outside and walking every day for two weeks, and for that I thank him and C.J. Box.
I got into this series toward the end and I really enjoy his work. Now I'm backing up and reading or listening to the beginning of the series. I recommend it and the way to go is audio
Joe pickett of course
I rent from the library and its the same narrator
yes and I did at work in a 8 hr work day
I want the whole series
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I very much enjoyed this book. Joe Pickett is a great character. He is honest, dedicated and an excellent family man and game warden. He has a wonderful family (wife Mary Beth and daughters Sheridan and Lucy) and a great dog (labrador Maxine). In this first book of the series we get to know him as he struggles on a low salary doing a fantastic job; however, he is having difficulties that get worse and worse. The reader is excellent. I will continue with this series.
i have listened to other books by c.j. box and this one is totally different!! Totally boring, drags while your main character is determined he is also barney fife. you are constantly hit over the head by endangered species warnings, hints, and public announcements. Gee do you think it has anything to do with the story? And there are abt 10 more chapters i just can't wade through them.
Good characterization and tension.
Would like to know more about game wardens.
Sometimes a little too righteous
narrator was great not author . not for children or angry adults. even if he is popular and many novels
