The survival of the daughter in the mountain
there were a few anxious moments. There were some unexpected twists
This book won't win any Pulitzers, but it sure is entertaining! Good story set in the Rockies. This is a first in a series. If the rest of them are this good, I will be listening to all of them.
The story was engaging and I enjoyed David Chandler's narration.
It was incredibly suspenseful and well written.
He has a pleasing voice that keeps me engaged.
Are you kidding? It's about 7 hours long. My family might get ticked when mom is locked in the bathroom listening to a 7 hour long audiobook. I do have super long commutes, so this really helped make my drive more pleasant.
I plan on listening to all the Pickett books now.
intrigue, exciting, interesting
the different mini stories kept me wondering how they connect. didn't want to put it down
when the daughter came running to the yard and picket was behind the man who was going to shoot her.
I recommend this as a must for mystery readers
the co;untry. the game warden just the whole book......
the game warden and daughter
i was sorry when it ended.
Didn't like Open Season enough to consider CJ Box again--unless I get it from the library. In my opinion, this was not worth spending a credit. I got very tired of all the foreshadowing without moving the story along. Figured out the plot/bad guys/good guys within the first few chapters. Once I knew this, I was bored.
A different Writer
Let anyone else write the dialog between males in the story
Did not like the book at all
First book I've listened to by C.J. Box. Reminded me of the Walt Longmire series by Craig Johnson. This was a good story that held my interest. Characters were developed enough so you can relate to their feelings and situation, hate the bad guys and route for the good guy.
Bad guy identity was revealed right away but enough was said to have it narrowed down to a couple of characters.
His performance was fine, but not great. His performance did not detract from the novel. I LOVE George Guidell b/c he does different voices for different characters, and Will Patton is also a favorite of mine since he does the same thing.
This is the beginning book in an impressive series about the life and times of a modern-day game warden. The story involves all the trappings of governmental bureaucracy, low pay for hard work, family dedication, and a good solid mystery. Joe Pickett is humble, honest, and a good thinker. If you like the rugged outdoors, you will enjoy this mystery.
Nice story for a 7th grade class
This story was slow and predictible and seemed to be written for a middle school audience. I had to slog my way through the story, as the story line was thin and the author seemed to need to add fluff and unnecessary descriptions just to add length to the book.
